I’m not sure when I first became a fan of Converse, early eighties I imagine, which is more than a few years after the company was founded in 1908. As a teenager Converse were cool but I was never to own a pair due to a major defect that my grandmother had identified, “You could spit peas through them!”
Not literally of course but their construction is nothing if not basic. Sure, over the years they have introduced various new designs but the big seller is the Chuck Taylor All Star which hasn’t changed much since it was designed in the seventies.
The good news for those who may not have heard, is Converse have introduced the Chuck Taylor All Star II which stay true to it’s design but embraces new technologies such as lightweight Nike Lunarlon cushioning.
