ConverseConverse for Comfort
Initially started as a rubber shoe manufacturer specialising in producing winterised footwear in Malden, Massachusetts in 1908, Converse Rubber Shoe Company expanded the business to tennis shoes manufacturing in 1915.
It was not until 1917 that the legendary Converse All Star basketball shoe was introduced to the market. In 1921, a basketball player Charles “Chuck” Taylor started his involvement with Converse by acting as a sales person and brand ambassador of the basketball shoe range across the U.S. In 1923, Chuck Taylor’s signature was included to the All Star patch and he continued his role as the brand ambassador until the 1960s. The shoe company was determined to head towards the basketball market by customising shoes for the first all black pro basketball team, the “New York Renaissance”.
American’s Go-To Basketball Shoe
During World War II, the company shifted the production line to military footwear and apparel. After the war ended, Converse had grown their popularity as a true American brand and the company enhanced the image by issuing the Converse Yearbook to celebrate its essential role in the lives of high school and college athletes.
After its heyday, the company started to lose its near-monopoly position in the basketball shoe market from 1970s onwards as a flock of new competitors such as Puma, Adidas, and Nike emerged.
Following the bankruptcy in 2001, ownership of the company changed and the manufacturing hub was moved from the U.S. to Asian and European countries.
Converse is currently a subsidiary of Nike, Inc. The company has untied itself from being sneakers for athletes only and reborn as versatile sneakers of choice around the world.
