The History of Converse: A Stand Out in Style
Converse sneakers have become synonymous with casual cool. They can be paired with jeans or athletic apparel and have a rich history when it comes to competition on the basketball court. Therefore, it’s no surprise these sneakers are popular with many women. They come in a variety of designs and colors that make them easy to pair with many staples in your wardrobe.
According to Converse.com, the brand was founded in the early 1900s, and the rubber sneaker quickly gained popularity. By the 1920s, Chuck Taylor had joined the company and made a name for the shoe on the basketball court. So began the popular “All Star” design that is still a bestseller today.
Over time, the brand has evolved, creating different styles and designs to fit the changing needs of men and women. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the shoe got a bold makeover. Designers introduced some of the bright colors and standout designs that shoe lovers know today.
The brand continues to introduce new colors and interesting features that have kept Converse relevant. From bright pops of color featured on the shoe’s tongue to knee-high lace up All Stars, there’s something for women of every style. Finish Line is proud to sell these classic sneakers and even partner with the brand for an upcoming contest. Stay tuned to FinishLine.com for the latest Converse sneaker style. We know this brand will continue to be innovative, while always staying true to the designs that have made them a brand name in the sneaker industry.
