High Top Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Sneakers
The Converse rubber company started producing rubber work shoes in 1908. Eventually the founders saw the need for the production of basketball shoes and in 1917 the All Star basketball shoe was born. Charles Taylor, who played basketball for the Akron Firestones, began promoting the shoes in 1921. As a result of his successful efforts in promoting the All Star sneaker, in 1932 the name “Chuck Taylor” was added to the ankle patch. The Chuck Taylor Converse shoes began to take off as they were worn by athletes, actors and actresses, Olympians, and you and me. Today, you can find Converse shoes on any continent in the world, even Antarctica.
