Founded in 1908 by Marquis Mills, the Converse Rubber Shoe company primarily produced winter boots with rubber soles. In 1915 they started manufacturing athletic shoes and in 1917 the All-Star basketball shoe was released.
It started really picking up steam in the 1920's when Chuck Taylor, a basketball player and product marketer began wearing and promoting their shoes. Widely regarded as the highest selling shoe of all time, the Chuck Taylor All-Stars have become some of the most recognisable pieces of footwear worldwide.
Converse Chuck 70 HI has been a staple wardrobe piece for 50 years now. This pair in an all over hemp material comes in a pastel colour way that differs on both feet. An interesting release by the classic footwear brand.
