The American shoe company Converse was founded in 1908 by Marquis Mills Converse, a manager at a shoe company. The newly founded Converse Rubber Shoe Company was originally a manufacturer offering winter footwear with rubber soles for men, women and children.
The breakthrough of the Converse brand took place in 1917, when the first basketball shoes - Converse All-Star - were introduced to the offer. Over a hundred years ago, Converse also began producing sneakers Chuck Taylor All Star and One Star, which became one of the most iconic shoes in the world.
The main recipe for the brand's success is the combination of convenience and modern design. Currently, Converse is working on the creation of a new streetwear classics. In its history, the brand can boast of special limited editions, created in cooperation with DC Comics, Pink Floyd, AC / DC, Metallica, The Clash, Jim Hendrix and Miley Cyrus.
