Converse began in 1908 as a rubber shoe company specialising in galoshes. Soon after, they started using their rubber to make sneakers. In 1920, they renamed the canvas basketball sneaker the “All Star.” The name stuck. What didn’t stick was their intention. They made them to sink jump shots on the court. Us the public, however, saw them as something more… and started wearing our sneakers to do whatever we wanted. We played music, made art, skated the streets and kicked back.
