Sometime in 1908, Marquis Mills Converse decided to start a rubber shoe company, bypassing a rubber trust that prevented most companies from doing business directly with their retailers. Early catalogs of Converse bragged about how many trucks left the Converse factory in Malden, Massachusetts, delivering product directly to stores in Boston. Marquis Mills Converse idea worked. But more importantly, it survived.1918-1928

The invention of Rock & Roll. It was loud, lewd, filthy and everything everyone who feared it said it was. It was also a movement in search of a uniform: It found the leather jacket, the blue jean and the high-top sneaker.

Converse shoes have been closely connected to the NBA for many years to come.1968-1978

Then around ’76 came the Pro Leather, an instant favorite in a time when the game needed a vibe.1998-2008
