About Converse

It has been estimated that more than 60% of Americans own or have owned at least one pair of Converse sneakers in their lifetime. Part of Nike, Inc. since 2003, the Converse shoe company traces its rich heritage to 1908, when Marquis Mills Converse opened the Converse Rubber Shoe Company in Malden, Massachusetts, specializing in winterized rubber-soled Converse footwear for men, women and children. In 1917, the Converse® All-Star® canvas basketball shoe was introduced, and a legend was born in 1921, when basketball player Charles H. "Chuck" Taylor became the brand ambassador: His name first appeared on signature Chuck Taylor high-top sneakers in 1932. For decades, both Converse high-tops and low-cut oxfords have been integral to youth culture, made famous by celebrities ranging from Drew Barrymore, Kristen Stewart, Demi Lovato and Billie Joe Armstrong to the legendary Wilt Chamberlain, who was wearing a pair of Chucks when he scored 100 points in a game against the New York Knicks in 1962. Although the brand rarely makes appearances on basketball courts anymore, its lofty position is cemented in fashion history.
