Converse Inc., based in Boston, Massachusetts, is a wholly owned subsidiary of NIKE, Inc. Established in 1908 as a rubber company, the introduction of its first canvas basketball sneaker propelled a legacy as the original brand of youth culture around the world.
Today, Converse is a socially progressive and highly inventive footwear and apparel brand for and powered by All Stars, a global community of emerging creatives who champion progress in sport and culture. \
The interpretation and adoption of its iconic sneakers, including the Chuck Taylor All Star, the Pro Leather, the One Star and Jack Purcell continue to enable expression in the basketball, skateboarding and creative communities while inspiring the new lines of its design.
