Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain wore them. David Bowie wore them. Rocky wore them. In Doctor Who, the Tenth Doctor wore them. The list of icons, real and fictional, who’ve been seen in Converse is endless, making Converse’s Chuck Taylor All Stars possibly the most famous shoes in the world. Converse’s most famous offering take their name from 1920s basketball player Chuck Taylor, who walked into Converse one day looking for a shoe that wouldn’t give him such sore feet. He never expected to spend five decades being the official advocate for the shoes he was given, let alone eventually giving his name to said shoes! These shoes have long since transcended the sport – everybody’s had a pair of Chucks at some point. Why? The iconic design instantly recognisable as the Chuck Taylor All-Star is one reason, but the quality and durability of the shoes is another – rock stars and sports stars choose them because their active lifestyles mean they need shoes that can take one hell of a beating.
If you’re looking for a brand that mixes modern style with old school cool, you can’t go wrong with Converse. Looking for black? Red? Blue? Denim floral? Leopard print? Metallic snake leather? Converse shoes have ‘em all.
