It all began in 1908 as a rubber shoe company that specialized in galoshes

In the year 1920, they renamed the classic pair of shoes, "All Stars", and the name has stuck with the shoe ever since.

The basketball player, Charles 'Chuck' Taylor came into their store complaining about how sore his feet were and was then offered a job as an ambassador for the brand and this is how the name "Chuck Taylor" has come about.


Unfortunately, Converse had to file for bankruptcy in 2001 but don't worry... Nike bought them and was able to bring the company back up to the brilliance it began as.
