The Converse Rubber Shoe Company was founded in 1908. In 1917 they created a shoe called the All Star and in 1921, basketball player Charles “Chuck” Taylor joined a basketball team sponsored by Converse — The Converse All Stars. Taylor became a salesman for the company and made improvements to the shoe.
