In 1923, after Chuck Taylor made improvements to the shoe, Converse decided to incorporate his name onto the ankle patch that displayed the Converse All Star logo. Then, in the 1930sTaylor’s signature was put into the design, which is how the shoe became known as the “Chuck Taylor” All Star.

 

When first created, the Converse All Star had three main styles - a monochromatic shoe with a black canvas upper and black rubber soles, an all white shoe with blue and red trim, and an all black leather and rubber shoe. It wasn’t until after World War II that Converse decided to make the toe guard, laces and outer wraps white, which gave the appearance of the iconic black and white Converse All Stars of today.

 

In 1957, Converse came out with the low-cut “Oxford” version on the All Star and soon after started to produce the shoes in multiple colors and prints. Today, Converse makes the Chuck Taylor All Star in a variety of colors, styles, prints and fabrics.

According to legend, in 1918, a high school basketball player laced up his first pair of Converse All-Stars; Converse's first basketball shoe, released only one year previous. At that point, basketball itself was only 27 years old, and the formation of the NBA was 28 years away. Being a professional basketball player involved barnstorming-- joining a locally based traveling team and touring the country playing loosely-organized exhibition matches for small crowds. This high school player, 17 year-old Charles H. Taylor, would go on to a brief and largely unrecorded career as a barnstormer. Fifty years later, this early player and fan of both basketball and Converse All-Star sneakers would be inducted into the basketball hall of fame; not for his success as a player, but as a shoe salesman.


By the time Chuck Taylor joined Converse in 1921, the company was already an established footwear manufacturer, but still fairly new to the concept of athletic shoes. Founded in Malden, Massachusetts in 1908 by Marquis M. Converse, the Converse Rubber Shoe Company initially found success producing rubber-soled winter footwear, manufacturing up to 4,000 pairs per day by 1910. They were designed to prevent slipping on an icy sidewalk, but were certainly no pop-culture icons. In 1915, the company added a tennis shoe to the product line, and two years later released the not-yet famous All-Star basketball shoe. It was this shoe, of course, which Chuck Taylor (according to legend, anyway) improved in 1921 by suggesting a more flexible outsole and the shoe's signature supportive ankle patch. After he'd spent two years touring the country promoting the newly improved All-Star and the still-fledgling sport of basketball, Converse added Chuck's actual signature to the shoe's patch. Now, what is arguably the most famous athletic shoe ever was complete and ready to barnstorm its way into basketball legend and American history.

In the following decades, the All-Star became the ultimate hoops shoe, appearing on basketball courts everywhere. Its evolution saw it modified in team-specific color variations and worn by legendary NBA players like Julius 'Dr. J' Erving (who was given his own line of shoes in 1976) and Wilt 'The Stilt' Chamberlain (who famously set the single game scoring record in 1962 by racking up 100 points with a pair of Converse on his size 15 feet).

One of the first teams to adopt the All-Star was the also the first all-black barnstorming team; the now-legendary New York Renaissance. Converse developed custom All-Stars for the Rens in 1923, and the team went on to more than 2,500 wins and a World Basketball Tournament championship, despite a demanding touring schedule and racial discrimination preventing them from joining any professional league. Another set of history makers, the All-American Red Heads (one of the first female basketball teams) got customized All-Stars in 1936. These days, fully-integrated basketball teams and the Women's NBA are taken for granted, but back then, there were just a few brave and talented pioneers with All-Stars on their feet.

The Chuck Taylor All-Star made the Converse brand famous, but the company has released several classics over the years, including the Jack Purcell in 1925, the One Star (a low cut basketball shoe later adopted by skateboarders) in 1974, and the Weapon-- still an old school favorite on basketball courts everywhere-- in 1986. Not content to live in the past, Converse opened one of the nation's first biomechanics labs in 1981 to research technology to make shoes more comfortable and better performing. In 1992, the company patented REACT custom-fit technology, increasing the cushioning and stability that a basketball shoe's construction can offer. Chuck Taylor's legacy lives on today, as the Converse All-Stars, mostly unchanged since 1923, remain as one of the best selling athletic shoes worldwide, produced in such a wide variety of designs, styles, and colors that not even Chuck could've suggested them all.
