Converse All Star shoes never seem to go out of style.

Interesting Fact: In 1921, a basketball player by the name of Charles “Chuck” Taylor joined a basketball team sponsored by the Converse Company called The Converse All Stars. Taylor held basketball clinics in high schools all over the county and while teaching the fundamentals of the game, he sold the All Star shoes.[3] As a salesman and athlete for the company, Taylor also made improvements to the shoe he loved. His ideas for the shoe were designed to provide enhanced flexibility and support and also incorporated a patch to protect the ankle. (  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chuck_Taylor_All-Stars  )

  1. I had no idea they were that old! I love converse shoes, they are my favorite. You can even design your own on their website now. They just came out with an awesome Wonder Woman high top!

    • Yeah that is crazy how they just keep coming back in to fashion. I own few pairs myself I love them. The Wonder Woman ones are really cool I want to get the batman one. 🙂

      • ah…not the wonder woman ones? They aren’t selling 1/2 sizes in the stores anymore. I did see some on the website though. My son had a pair made for me for a Christmas present years ago.
