Converse is not a brand that needs much of an introduction. But did you know they started back in 1908 and specialised in making galoshes, but it wasn't long thereafter that they began using their rubber to make trainers... and aren't we grateful for it. Their canvas basketball trainer was named the ‘All Star’ in 1920 and the name has stuck ever since and is probably one of the most famous and well known style of shoes today. Since then they have evolved from a basketball shoe as it was intended to be into a casual everyday, anywhere shoe worn by millions around the world. Now we see Converse trainers being made with a variety of colours & designs, however the Converse All Star is still a firm favourite and more than likely will be for many more years to come. Converse shoes are worn by rebels, rockers, rappers, artists, dreamers, thinkers and originals. They are a brand who celebrate individuality, so if you’re one-of-a-kind, you should try on a pair of Converse shoes.
