Converse is one of the most iconic sneaker brands in America. The Converse "All Star" was introduced in 1917 as a sneaker for basketball. By the late 1940s, most of the players in the NBA wore Converse. The great thing about the Converse is that the design of the Converse "All Star" hasn't really changed since its introduction. Lately, the Converse "All-Star" has shifted from an athletic sportswear to casual wear. The beautiful thing about the Converse Chuck Taylors are that it is common to see people still wearing these sneakers even after being introduced 100 years ago.
