Founded by Marquis M. Converse in 1908, the history of Converse lies, of course, in basketball. Converse is best known for the legendary Converse Converse Chuck 70 Patchwork Sneakers Rosa basketball shoe. Named after star basketball player Chuck Taylor, the model was launched in the year 1917 with a goal to improve the performance of the wearer.
Converse Chuck 70 High Valentines Day University Red University Red Egret Black Leather Pro were worn by legendary basketball players and were one of the most important shoes during basketball games in the NBA from the seventies to the eighties. It’s almost impossible to imagine the American sportswear scene without Chucks.
The brand is also known for the pair worn by badminton champion Jack Purcell. Converse bought this model from another manufacturer, B.F. Goodrich, in 1972.
The One Star, which was officially released in 1974, made the brand much more widely known and is still very popular. Converse sneakers are seen everywhere, worn by sports stars, rock stars, skaters, surfers and many more famous people.
At the end of the eighties, the company went through a difficult time, which resulted in a poor financial end to the nineties. Unfortunately, the oldest sports shoe company had to close its doors in 2001. Two years after the bankruptcy, Nike took over the company for $309million.
The company has sold more than 750 million pairs of the rubber-soled shoes in 144 countries. All models are based on the original Converse All Stars, but with improvements.
