Skid Grip

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.
