History of Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Core Hi
In 1917, Converse released Converse “All-Star,” the World’s first basketball performance shoes, but it was four years later that the history of their iconic name started.
The All-Star became the celebrated pair of athletic shoes in the 1940s until the 1960s. During those times, Converse acquired 80% of the overall US market. They introduced the black and white Chuck Taylor All Star and the low-cut Oxford Chuck and shortly introduced the colored version of Chucks in the 60s.
Over the years, this shoe was called various names by different generations - Chucks, Cons, All-Stars are just some of its monikers. In 2003, another hardcore sports brand Nike acquired the Converse. Nike would instead buy brands than develop casual shoes.
As a spinoff of the classic Chucks, Converse launched the Chuck Taylor All-Star Core Hi. This shoe is one variation of the century-old Chucks which features a refined and softer canvas upper with color contrasted sidewall stripe. This shoe also has the Ortholite sock liner for added comfort. This casual kick continues to reign the modern fashion with its timeless style and comfort.
