Converse – Cool at Any Age
Converse is one of the few brands that really can transcend the age barrier.
It’s not every day you come across a fashion brand that’s been going for 100 years and is still cool. Yet that’s exactly what’s happened with Converse, which started making rubber shoes back in 1908. Since then, everything the company has done has kept it popular with the next generation, which is why it’s unsurprising that today’s Converse shoes are worn from one end of the age spectrum to the other.Converse – from Baby to Boomer
Today, there’s a Converse shoe for everyone. Although the classic All Star high tops are one of the company’s most popular sellers, there’s a whole range of cool sneakers to choose from. There’s very little cuter than seeing a toddler wearing its first pair of Converse shoes, and they are the sneaker of choice for many fashion-conscious teenagers, who can now buy them in a wide range of styles, colours and patterns and then quite happily personalise them with fluorescent laces or sub-culture badges. Middle-aged adults, who wore the new All Stars first time round have come back to the brand, and because they are comfortable and smart as well as affordable, more and more people are choosing Converse as their fashion sneaker:
- Chuck Taylor – one of Converse’s earliest designers and devotees, the Chuck Taylor name can be found on a wide range of All Star sneakers, from lo-top to ex-high tops, which can be laced up the leg, or left unlaced and folded down. Today, these classic sneakers are available in an incredible colour and pattern range – although the basic shape stays the same.
- Jack Purcell – Purcell was Canadian and became the World Badminton Champion, giving his name to a range of Converse sneakers that still sell well today. Low top, using subtle colours and materials, Jack Purcell sneakers are cool and unassuming as well as being ultra-comfortable.
- Basketball – this fast-paced game, now one of the highest-paid professional sports in the USA, is where it all started for Converse. The company still produces a range of quality basketball sneakers, with modern cushioning and grip, for players and fans alike.
