I BOUGHT my first pair of Converse shoes aged 10. The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star sneaker was all man. It was also all woman. My sister got them first. But I don’t care. These wasn’t unisex shoes. This wasn’t like being called Lesley. Converse were just cool.

They have been ever semi-professional basketball player Chuck Taylor added his name to the Converse Rubber Company’s “All Star” shoe. Taylor was hired as a salesman. He would travel the US showcasing the shoes in basketball clinics. Chuck and his shoes were a hit.

The kids with no idea wore plimsoles to play. The ones with ideas but no clue wore Dunlop Green Flash. The cool kids had Converse.

Who wears them now? Anyone. Anywhere.
