Converse started away back in 1908 in Massachusetts. 1917 seen the design of the modern “All Star” trainer, which has the classic rubber sole and canvas upper that we still know today. American Basketball player Charles “Chuck” Taylor joined a basketball team which was sponsored by the Converse All Star Company. He became a sales man for this iconic shoe and also made improvements to the shoe which included the heel patch for added support.
Converse has now grown into a World leading brand, the logo is easily recognisable around the globe and Shmooz are happy to be known as one of their stockists. We carry a capsule collection of the All Star Chuck Taylor so that both Ladies and Gents can keep the Converse story alive.
