Dating back as far as 1908, Converse has definetly earned it's status as one the most well known shoe companies in the world.
The company revolutionized the world of shoe manufacturing by delivering their rubber shoes directly from the factory to the retailers. It's most famous model is the All Star. First produced in 1917, they weren't a particularly popular shoe until they were adopted by basketball player Chuck Taylor in 1918. He was so impressed with the All Star that he became the shoes leading salesman.
Chuck stayed with Converse until his death in 1969.
We just recieved the Chuck Taylor All Star in these nice and classic colorways:
