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.
