Converse have been around since 1908 and begin in Massachusetts USA. By 1918 Chuck Taylor joined the Converse Rubber Company and had his signature on the classic All Star ankle patch that you see today. Rock & Roll and pro basketball grew up in Converse High Tops, and All Stars finally came in colors. In tumultuous times, legends are born ? and from a green and white basketball team to a British invasion, from rooftops to alfalfa fields, Converse was along for the ride.
Converse enters its second century by honoring its heritage of seeing things a little differently, loving people who want to change the world for the better, and basically celebrating the spirit of rebellion and originality in basketball, Rock & Roll and anywhere else you find it.
