Now weâ€™re not a gambling site, but we would put money on everyone owning or knowing someone who owns a pair of Converse. Theyâ€™re an absolute must for girls and guys who love iconic brands, comfort and style, and once youâ€™re hooked, youâ€™ll never look anywhere else for your casual shoe.
Back in 1908, Marquis Mills Converse started a rubber sneaker company before anyone else. The company quickly teamed up with a new sport and suddenly took off as the official shoe of basketball. With the arrival of Chuck Norris in 1913, the pairing grew in fame and became widespread across America.
The uniform of the Rock â€˜nâ€™ Roll era in the 50â€™s meant every young man was wearing a leather jacket, jeans and of course, the high top sneaker. At the same time, The national Basketball Association was born and with it the infamous high top Converse. Little has changed since then, apart from the introduction of colours. The rest, they say, is history.
Today Converse are as sought after as they ever were with celebs all seeming to have a pair (or two!). If you donâ€™t already own a pair, youâ€™re missing out; once you pop on a pair, youâ€™ll never want to take them off. So stock up now and get 50% off this iconic brand. If itâ€™s cool enough for Teen Wolf, itâ€™s cool enough for us!
