Rachael's thoughts on her Converse shoes

Probably one of the greatest shoes ever made has been the Converse All*Star 'Chuck Taylor'. Ateast 60% of americans own or have owned a pair of these sneakers. In 1908 the Converse Rubber Corporation opened, and at first only made galoshes and other work related rubber shoes on a seasonal basis. Shortly after that the company decided it was more efficient to keep their work force working year round and began making athletic shoes. With the popularity of basketball, after a lot of research, the very first version of the All Star basketball shoe was produced in 1917.TheAll Star shoe originally came in natural brown colors with black trim. In the 1920's they were made in all black canvas or leather versions. Chuck Taylors have a lot of history and are an amazing shoe. I enjoy them so much because they have history, a large variety, and have been researched and sold for years due to their comfort. You can also find these shoes in a very affordable price range, and in several popular shoe stores near you.
