Converse offer a true trademark of Sport and Music culture. Originally genre-defining for the fast-developing American world of Basketball in the 20th century, the brand soon became standard issue for athletes everywhere.
During the rise of Rock and Roll, Converse footwear was also taken on board for the image of the Rock star synonymously with the ripped jeans and the leather jackets, doing its part in creating a rebellious archetype.
The brightly coloured artistic canvas styled shoes soon became irresistible to the rest of the public and the fashion world. The iconic high-top is to this day a common sight for rebellious skaters, rockers and young women adding some hipster style to their outfits.
Despite many flavours of modern illustrations influencing the designs of Converse footwear, Converse make sure that they keep true to their roots, producing superb quality shoes with that old-school vintage feel and that added polish of the 21st century urban youth culture.
