Since their initial beginnings as a rubber shoe company back in 1908, Converse began using their rubber to make sneakers. By 1920 the All Star was born and it took the basketball courts by storm. Soon after it was adopted by the streets. What was once intended for making sink jump shots on the court has since been seen on the feet of individual thinkers, rebels, rockers, skaters, gamers and fashion icons. Fans and wearers took the sneakers above and beyond their initial potential.
