Converse: Made By You

Converse is one of the most recognisable brands around the world, with its famous Chuck Taylors an icon in itself.

Converse was founded in 1908 but the real starting point for the brand came in 1917 when they created the All-Star basketball shoe, made famous by basketball player Charles H. “Chuck” Taylor. Since then, Converse has been the go-to brand for the casual shoe for sports legends, rock stars, rappers and everyone in between.

Converse shoes are seen everywhere, but they have that special quality that also makes them highly individual. Anyone at any age can rock a pair of Converse, customising them and living in them to make them their own. Take a look at the video below that celebrates just that, and get your own piece of the action with the range of Converse on AllSole.

A fan of all things minimalist, I prefer to invest in a few simple pieces each season and am a big believer that you can never own too many pairs of black flats. I’m constantly on the search for the coolest new brands, so you’re most likely to find me surrounded by magazines when I’m not blogging. That, or binge watching Netflix.
