It's impossible not to know the Converse name. Founded all the way back in 1908, American brand Converse is known for their basketball shoes and everyday footwear. One of the most famous footwear designs of all time, Converse All Stars, also known as Chuck Taylors, or simply 'Chucks' first began as a basketball shoe in 1917. They still feature that same canvas upper and rubber-soled design, which, in those days, came in brown with black trimmings.
The design was the first ever mass produced basketball shoe, although it saw slow sales until the brand's collaboration with basketball player Charles H. Taylor in 1921, which grew the popularity of the style. Over the years, Chucks have been worn by icons such as James Dean, Elvis, The Ramones, Guns 'N Roses and Kurt Cobain. On eBay, there is a wide variety of colours, prints, low-top and hi-top styles and even smooth leather.
A more modern sneaker from Converse, One Star shoes are crafted from rubber-backed suede or premium leather for increased durability. In a range of cool styles, they also feature OrthoLite insole and Nike Zoom Air Technology to give them a lightweight and cushioned step.
The ultimate in vintage-inspired sneaker design, Pro trainers from Converse feature a leather upper. Featuring a recreated version of a classic basketball look, they come in a low-top style with a rubber sole and cushioning for great comfort with every wear.
