History of the  Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Low Top

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Low Top shoes have a long and rich history, which spans over a century. They were manufactured by a Massachusetts company built by Marquis Mills Converse in 1908. The business was at first focused on producing galoshes and winter boots, which it did quite well. The business was booming as barely two years after the business was put up, Converse was already into daily production.

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Low Top shoes launched in 1957. The Converse low-top and high-top shoes would reign over the courts for a decade more. However, rival brands with high-tech innovations, new designs, and the use of a variety of fabrics began to chip away at Converse’s lion’s share of the market. By the 70s, players were leaving the brand in droves and shifting to these challenges.
