Converse All Star “Chucks”
Still going strong after over 100 years, Converse “Chucks” are America’s favorite sneaker. They’re probably also America’s favorite shoes.
The Chuck was originally created by Converse way back in 1917 as a non-skid basketball shoe called the All Star. When the shoe was redesigned in 1922 at the request of basketball player Chuck Taylor, Converse added his signature to the protective ankle patch. And the Converse “Chuck” was born.
Fast-forward a few years to this, the Converse All Star Core Ox. The shoe is retro-cool, incorporating the signature Converse canvas upper and rubber sole with lace up front and metal eyelets.
The vintage look and classic design of the All Star Core Ox has seen it awarded over 4,300 5-star reviews on Zappos.com. Head there to see more pictures and to buy this classic look which never dies.
