Since their deep-rooted beginning in 1908, Converse has shaped the fashion industry through their iconic and highly recognisable footwear. Their basketball sneaker, better known as the “All Star”, fast became a staple piece to work and play sport in. At Circa, our collection of Converse All Star high top and low top sneakers complete any urban look with ease and style
Converse began in 1908 as a rubber shoe company specialising in galoshes or wellies as it’s known here in the UK and soon after, the company began to use their rubber to make sneakers instead. Originally designed to fill a gap in the market caused by the increasing popularity of basketball in the 1920s, the All-Star has come a long way since and has been a statement piece for many. Coming in a variety of colours, Converse is a masterpiece of utilitarian design and versatility and it’s for these reasons that it has remained hugely popular to this day. With a rich heritage and an instantly recognisable, iconic silhouette, Converse has and is continuing to shape the fashion industry and is a true style icon that is sure to stay that way for many years to come.
