Stating that they ‘would be independent’ and ‘not to follow ever other company’ Converse went against the crowd and began making shoes for the fast growing sport of basketball. Some years later, basketball player Chuck Taylor became infamously involved with Converse, even going so far as to add his signature to the Converse All Star patch; this earned Converse their affectionate nickname ‘Chucks’- a nickname that’s still going strong today. It’s said that the soul of Chuck Taylor lives on in every Converse product. When the NBA was created; Converse sneakers became the basketball league’s official shoe and retained the title for many, many years. Firmly placing Converse as an icon in sporting history.
