In 1908 the small shoe company Converse was founded by Marquise Mills in Massachusetts. In 1917 the well-known Basketball player Chuck Taylor started to cooperate with the label and developed the legendary „ Chuck Taylor All Star“, the first signature shoe worldwide. The shoe came as a real bombshell and no basketball court was no longer imaginable without it. Over 600 million times sold - the numbers speak for themselves. Converse has steadily grown and started to create other shoe models and many different colorways. Even nowadays the label Converse is one of the most popular street wear company and shines with a mixture of tradition, quality and modern style.
