Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Core Leather Hi History

The Converse All-Star is one of the most iconic and most popular sneakers to date. Coming from a rich history, 100 years of existence in the footwear industry, and being recognized as one of the oldest athletic shoes, it has become a statement and must-have piece on most people's wardrobe.

The first version of Converse All-Star, which was in brown upper and black trim, was produced in 1917. Produced when sneakers were purposely worn for sports, the All-Star meant to fill the ever-increasing demand and popularity of basketball shoes. The initial sales of the model were nothing spectacular at first. However, when basketball player Charles H. Taylor (also known as Chuck Taylor) entered the scene, the brand and the shoe was able to reach a wider market thanks to his splendid marketing ideas and unique sales pitch. The Converse All-Star grew into becoming synonymous with basketball and the favored footwear of players.

In 1932, Converse launched the addition of the "Chuck Taylor" on its ankle patch logo and sneaker name, making one of the most remarkable changes on the now classic sneaker.

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Core Leather Hi Style

As one of the world's most iconic high top sneakers, Converse gives a luxurious twist to its traditional canvas upper. Retaining the century-old silhouette, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Core Leather Hi is incontestably one of the most versatile sneakers in history. Much like the Chuck Taylors with canvas uppers, versatility is one of its key qualities—suiting all genders, ages, and styles. Moreover, because of its rich textured upper, it can take one on a black-tie event effortlessly.

Fit & Sizing

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Core Leather Hi is a unisex sneaker that is available in men's sizes ranging from 3 to 13 in medium width. Half sizes are available as well for wider options. Converse recommends women wanting to avail of this style to go down two sizes from their usual for an ideal fit.

Based on the general feedback of the users, these sneakers run slightly big and narrow, so it is recommended to go a half or a size down when ordering. However, if a roomier toe box is preferred, staying true to size will be more ideal. The high-top silhouette allows users to cinch the feet tightly or loosely freely.

Notable Features

Because of its all-leather upper, the All Star Core Leather Hi is not your average Converse. Much like the benefits of a leather sneaker, the material conforms to the feet as it softens during the break-in period. Aside from it upgraded and more premium look, it is weather-resistant and more durable compared to other materials like canvas.
