Converse been out for ever ; but the trend is back , high school students are wearing them like theirs no tomorrow . At first I though only kids that were nerds and geeks wore them I also thought only people that skate wore them too, but now I see even the popular kids catching on to the trend. I think converse are back in style because they are comfortable and they go with anything that you may wear . They come in all types of colors and different types of styles they have high tops and low tops . Converse came out in 1908 it all started when Marquis M. Converse opened the Converse Rubber Shoe Company in Madlen, Massachusetts. Converse was producing 4,000 shoes a day. Converses are still a big trend till this day . I just found out the converse were basketball shoes , I didn't even know that . These sneakers are very affordable. Chuck Taylor was the first basketball player to wear converses he played for the Akron Firestone , Chuck like what he saw he say potential in these sneakers . The original converses came in natural brown colors with a black trim . In the late 1920's converse were made in black canvas or leather ones . When they first was in stores they were not being bought ; but thanks to Chuck purchases of converses increased . This is the history of converses !!!!!
