Converse Chuck Taylor

Originating in the early 20th century, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star was initially designed as a performance basketball shoe before its widespread adoption by popular culture. It was named after Chuck Taylor, a basketball player and shoe salesman who suggested significant design changes to the original model in the 1920s, leading to its increased popularity. Despite its simplistic design with a rubber sole and canvas upper, it quickly transcended sports to become a staple of American fashion and a symbol of rebellion. Over the decades, collaborations with brands like COMME des GARÇONS, A-COLD-WALL*, and JW Anderson have reimagined the timeless silhouette, confirming the Chuck Taylor's status as an enduring icon in the world of footwear.
