About the brand
It might not be known to all but it all started out as early as 1908, when Marquis M. Converse opened the Converse Rubber shoe Company in Malden, Massachusetts. The company begun as a rubber shoe manufacturer, which offered winterized rubber soled footwear for men, women, and children. It wasn’t until 10 years later that the then unknown Charles H. Taylor, a basketball player from the Akron Firestones, acquired his first pair of All Star shoes, and while wearing his Converse shoes, he made basketball to the sport it is today. In 1921 Chuck Taylor officially joined Converse and became America’s first sponsored basketball player.
Chuck's signature was added two years later in the All Star patch. Even Hollywood actors and other celebrities started to wear Converse shoes so it wasn’t long until Converse shoes became the number one footwear among US teenagers. They were usually worn with jeans by the boys and with skirts and ankle socks by the girls. This fashion was finally legitimate by the movie legend, James Dean, who was photographed wearing jeans and white Chucks. A true legend that will never loose its touch!
