Converse was founded in 1908 as a rubber shoe company specializing in winter boots.

In 1915 the company started manufacturing athletic tennis shoes and in 1917 they introduced the Converse All-Star basketball shoe.

During WWII, Converse took a small hiatus in athletic shoe manufacturing to produce boots, parkas, rubber protective suits, and ponchos for pilots and troops.

Up until 1966 the choices were only black and white.

Pressure from basketball teams urged Converse to start producing in other colors and materials, which they did.

Converse lost much of its monopoly in the sneaker market in the 1970s.

The boom of new athletic shoe competitors such as Nike, Adidas and Reebok took its toll on the company.

Converse found themselves no longer the official shoe of the National Basketball Association.
