The Chuck Taylor All Star

Written by  Phoebe C.

We all know the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star for its canvas, but the history of the world's first signature sneaker was born from the shoe's other prominent material: rubber.

Originally created in 1917, the Chuck Taylor signature may have migrated away from the hardwood—it was last worn in an NBA game by Tree Rollins in 1979—but the Chuck lives on, full of in-game history and sport-to-lifestyle crossover appeal.
From canvas to leather and even rubber making the shoe waterproof, Converse, now owned by Nike, hasn't stopped evolving since 1917.

After nearly 100 years, basketball's first signature shoe lives on in culture!
