As a traditional American brand, Converse can look back on over 100 years of corporate history. Founded in 1908 by Marques Mills Converse in Malden, Massachusetts as the Converse Rubber Shoe Company, the company initially focused on manufacturing winter-proof footwear and vulcanized rubber tires. The demand for athletic footwear was immense, so in 1921 they began working with basketball player Chuck Taylor. Together they designed a new type of shoe, which was launched in 1923 and which we know today as the Chuck Taylor All Star name. Since then, the shoe model is often just called "Chucks".
From then on, the success story of the Converse brand was unstoppable. Thus, Converse was among the sponsors of the 1984 Summer Olympics. Already in the 1930s were the Sneaker of Converse were already popular with basketball players and were worn in Olympic basketball games. In the following decades, models such as the All Star or the Converse One Star became symbols of their own sense of style and non-conformity and a fashion statement for complete generations. Since 2003, the sporting goods supplier belongs to the cult brand Nike.
