Founded by Marquis Mills, Converse started in 1908 as a company specializing in galoshes. Initially, the company’s name was Converse Rubber Shoe Company. Eventually, they adapted and began to use the rubber material to make sneakers, which later people have come to know and love.

Converse was well into daily production in 1910, yet it was not until 1915 that the athletic shoes in production. Back then, the sales of the shoes were slow since trainers were not treated or viewed as leisurewear too. The canvas shoe style was famous and picked by sports players.

In 1920, the company eventually renamed the canvas Converse basketball shoes as All-Star. It quickly followed by the endorsement of Charles “Chuck” Taylor, a basketball player. It caused Converse to make turned things around, taking the brand to a whole new playing field.

In 1932, as the company’s way of appreciating and recognizing Taylor’s hard work, they printed his name on the shoe’s ankle patch, creating the history of the Converse logo. This created the iconic Chucks that took over the industry of footwear since then.

In 1936, the white Chuck Taylor with a high-top profile was designed for the Olympics. The signature blue and red stripes were introduced on the sole. It became popular that the design immortalized. 

Over the following years, Converse took extensive amounts of licensing deals and sponsorships, perpetuating the brand’s popularity with the general public and sports stars alike. Subsequently, Converse secured 80% shares of the whole sneaker industry by 1957.
