The World's Most Iconic Trainers
Founded in 1908, it's hard to believe that Converse, one of the world's most famous and instantly recognisable footwear brands, started life as a rubber shoe manufacturer, specialising in over boots and galoshes, a far cry from the high fashion brand which we know today.
Whether you call them Chucks, Cons or plain old Chuck Taylors, today these canvas sports shoes are found in most wardrobes around the world. Initially known as a basketball shoe, today Converse are worn as much for their fashion purposes as for their sporting qualities these days, if not more so.
Celebrities Love Cons
During the late 80s and early 90s, Cons became known as the shoe of choice for rock stars, with music legends like Kurt Cobain, Tommy Ramone and George Harrison all being photographed wearing the famous shoe brand, and they have retained their inherent sense of coolness ever since.
Converse trainers are a great everyday option for people who want to wear a durable, yet comfortable shoe that will go with any outfit. Whether youâ€™re keeping it casual with a pair of skinny jeans or wearing them on the red carpet, like Kristen Stewart, Cons are some of the most versatile trainers around.
More Than Just Footwear
Available in womens, mens and kids sizes, Converse are a trainer for all the family. Designed in a dazzling variety of colours and styles, there's a huge selection to choose from that should suit anyone and everyone.
Over the last decade or so, Converse have expanded their fashion brand beyond footwear, to include a range of stylish tops, jackets, pants and accessories, meaning a Con fan can dress fully from head to toe in this super cool label.
