Converse Rubber Shoes Company is a brand created in 1908 by the Marquis Mills Converse in Malden, Massachusetts. The best-selling model was the Converse All Star, a shoe created for basketball players, which became successful thanks to the famous basketball player Chuck Taylor who wore them during his games, to the point that they were later renamed the Chuck Taylor All Star. Since then, the high sneakers of the brand made in the USA have gone through time, worn by different generations, never out of fashion.
The converse shoe has been able to cross time and eras to become a symbol of the sneakers. For a few years now, Converse has never stopped reissuing its original models such as the Jack Purcel, the Chuck Taylor All Star or the Converse One Star. The famous American brand has managed to amplify its notoriety thanks to successful collaborations: like boys, brain dead.
For this new season 2021, Converse will perfectly accompany your style. Timeless classic shoes, some of them offer a rather sober design like hi leather and hi suede, but others can offer a more whimsical side such as hi flowers, hi Gold or hi digital daze. Let's not forget the classic hi Black and hi Parchment which are emblematic of the brand.
