About Converse

Marquis Mills Converse was a previous manager at a footwear manufacturing firm and opened the Converse Rubber Shoe Company in 1908 in Malden, MA. Originally, they produced winterized rubber soled footwear for men, women, and children.

By 1910, Converse was producing shoes daily.  They started with athletic shoes in 1915. In 1917, they introduced their Converse All-Star basketball shoe.

During World War II, they shifted production to manufacturing rubberized footwear, outerwear, and protective suits in the military. Afterwards, they resumed their athletic footwear when the war was over.

the company transformed sports footwear in 1917 with the development of an innovative, rubber-soled, ankle-stabilizing shoe for basketball known today as “Chuck Taylor All-Stars” or “Chucks.”

The shoes were named after the semi-pro basketball player who became a salesman for Converse, Charles Taylor. He shared his ideas for improving the shoe and over a century later, the style is seen all over the world.

Classic Chucks, trendy platforms and Pro Leather versions of iconic styles – Converse captures today’s street culture. Their shoes, clothes and accessories reflect a commitment to “celebrating freedom of expression through individuals and their movement(s).”

Production moved overseas in 2001, and Footwear Acquisitions purchased the brand, followed by Nike’s acquisition of the brand in 2003.

Today, Converse has over 100 stores in the US and 63 stores around the world.Their headquarters are in Boston, MA.
