Converse are shoes that never seem to go out of style. The brand dates back to 1908 and was founded by Marquis M Converse in Massachusetts, USA. It initially started off as a rubber company manufacturing Sneakers and Boots. In the early 1900s, a new sport started taking off in America - Basketball. Converse recieved their big break when they collaborated with basketball player Chuck Taylor and launched their Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoe. Not only were they known for their basketball shoes but soon after, they also gained recognition for other models such as Pro Leather, The Star Player and Weapon. Other sport profiles, such as badminton star Jack Purcell, also lent their names to promote shoes.Read more
