CONVERSE SHOES & CLOTHING
When you think of Converse, you probably think of Chucks - Converse's oldest and original basketball sneaker, and rightfully so. The Chuck Taylor All Stars were born just before the first-ever Olympic basketball Championship. That game gave rise to the iconic red and blue striped high-top Chuck that's revered today. You'd think the Chuck would stop there with quite a history under its belt, but it doesn't. Chucks become the unofficial training shoe of the US Armed Forces, and the official playing shoe for professional basketball players when the NBA is formed. By 1955, Chucks are the #1 basketball shoe in America, and low-top sneakers make their debut in 1957, which gains enormous popularity. But the history of Chucks is only a small portion of what the company actually embodies: empowering young people by celebrating freedom of expression. Converse has made a name for itself by always creating and experimenting by updating traditional designs and inventing new ones.
Fast forward to today, and we're still seeing new renditions of the Chuck Taylor All Star with the Madison, High Street, Slip, and Lift. Back then, Chucks were for athletes, but today it's a lifestyle sneaker. You can find a Chuck Taylor All Star for every family member. From crib booties to classic colors, you'll find a Chuck for every personality and every style. If you like to stick to classics, try anything in the Chuck Taylor All Star family; high top and low top. If you're a changemaker, you might like something new like the Run Star Hike or Run Star Motion.
