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.
Following a collaboration with Fear of God, the team at Converse have decided to do a general rerelease of the Skid Grip Hi. The shoe commonly associated with skateboarding and basketball has become something of a cult icon for the All Star brand. A silhouette that was forgotten about by most but treasured by those few who know how good it is. A true staple from Converse.
Available in a lo and hi iteration, the Skid Grip comes in a two tone colour way in both styles.
Canvas upper, rubber midsole.
