The Converse One Star line proves that good things, no matter how it goes away, are meant to return and stay. Since Converse was the first sneaker brand to enter and dominate the basketball scene, an extension of its DNA was put into work which exhibits the brand's intention for innovation. During the 70s, Converse released the One Star line which features a low-top sneaker to allow more movement on the ankles. The refashioned Converse All Star model, however, didn't take off as one would hope as competition during the time for basketball sneaker brands were at its peak.

About twenty years after, the sneaker made a comeback and became favored by the 90s grunge community. Thanks to one of the icons Kurt Cobain, lead singer of the band Nirvana, who was frequently seen wearing the Converse One Star, the sneaker was brought back to life. In 2015, Converse Con came back for the third time and even a better one. With Nike's acquisition, the said shoe is now infused with technologies to improve the level of comfort.
