Converse

American Footwear Company
Converse is an American shoe company, best known for the canvas All Star shoe, founded by Marquis Mills in 1908. One of the well-known series Chuck Taylor All Star brought success to Converse, with Chuck made an adjustment to the sneaker to provide greater support and flexibility on its functionality and made it one of the greatest basketball shoes with history. Today, Converse produces its All-Stars footwear in a variety of materials, shapes, and colorways. It has successfully bridged the gap between professional sneakers and smart-casual.
