“They were born” more than 100 years ago, the basic model of the company has changed very little since then and yet manages to find it always in fashion for every gender. How well do you know Converse?
👟 Converse became known through “All-Star,” but they came 9 years after opening the company. Until then, Converse was manufacturing rubber gloves.
👟 Our beloved All-Star was originally intended for sports use and it was very popular in the basket area as well as in the 1960s.
👟 The main reason that the All-Star became well-known was Chuck Taylor, a very popular basketball player of Converse’s sales / ambassador.
👟 Despite the great success of All-Star, Converse faced financial problems in the 1990s. Eventually, Nike bought the legendary company in 2003 and kept alive the classic All-Star concept.
👟 It took almost a century at Converse to make radical changes to the All-Star model, with the “Chuck Taylor All-Star II” coming out in July 2015. The look is almost the same, but the big difference lies in the much more comfortable new sole.
