Spring/Summer Converse Sneaker Staples

Converse Sneaker Staples


Since its establishment over 110 years ago by founder Marquis Mills, Converse has grown into one of the industry's most recognizable and iconic footwear brands. Also known as the ‘Chuck Taylor’ brand, the footwear label has continuously created a variety of sneakers that have been closet staples throughout each generation. Converse has been underneath the Nike umbrella since 2003. Converse high-top sneakers were initially designed to be worn as basketball shoes and at the time reinvented the concept of innovative NBA basketball footwear. Converse sneakers were notable in their design, as their thick rubber outsole and ankle-covering canvas upper offered optimal protection, comfort, and support needed by basketball players. Some of the most iconic different types of Converse shoes include the Chuck Taylor All Star, Chuck 70 Hi, and more recently, the Converse Run Star Motion Hike Hi and Run Star Hike Hi. Converse shoes are the perfect canvas with their different colors and silhouettes, making them ideal for everyday wear.
