Everyone has a history - an account of the things they've done during the time they've been around. We think of ours as a bunch of cool stories that have led us to where we are and will show us where we'll go. Converse also has been around long enough to learn it's not about how old you are, but how good you are - and that everyone loves a good story. The best stories are the ones that don't end - the ones you just keep adding to and adding to - all the while marveling at the creative, disruptive, optimistic, courageous ways things evolve from being what they were, to what they are, to what they will become.

Shoebuy Insider on Converse Shoes

Some people use the phrase "as American as apple pie". At Shoebuy, we prefer "as American as Converse". Converse is one of few brands that managed to remain a staple of our ever-evolving American culture since the company's inception in 1908.

Whether you envision Chuck Taylor sporting his namesake sneakers with short shorts, Bird and Magic lacing up their Weapons, rockers stage-diving into clamoring crowds of fans, or even "Jackass"-es performing unspeakable stunts, Converse, much like Forrest Gump, has always had a knack for being present when history is being made.

Perhaps it is much more likely that the roles are reversed; that trailblazers and innovators have always been drawn to Converse because of the company's ever-youthful, pioneering personality. It is a brand that manages to transcend the barriers that gap generations and captures the zeitgeist of any period in America.
