Needless to imagine. Legendary shoes that celebrate anniversary celebrations this year, everyone knows. But few know that this brand originally devoted to the production of galoshes and other working rubber footwear. Since it was only seasonal goods, a way to ensure year-round sales was sought. And then the beneficial idea of producing sports shoes arose.
Converse Rubber Corporation was founded in 1908 by Marquis Mills Converse. Several years later, American basketball was very popular and the company saw the opportunity to offer players special basketball shoes. The first version of the All Star basketball shoes was made in 1917 after long research and development. All Star shoes became the first mass-produced footwear in North America, and de facto, their popularity has never ceased. Converses are undoubtedly the classic of all classics, they have become a celebration of our individuality, self-realization and personal expression, have become part of us.
