The Most Successful Shoe Model In The World

  Chuck Taylor All-Stars or Converse All-Stars (also referred to as "Converse", "Chuck Taylors", "Chucks", "Cons", "All-Stars", and "Chucky Ts") is a model of casual shoe manufactured by Converse (a subsidiary of Nike, Inc. since 2003) that was initially developed as a basketball shoe in the early 20th century. The design of the Chuck Taylor All-Star has remained largely unchanged since its introduction in the 1920s. The shoe consists of a stitched upper portion, a toe cap that is usually made of white rubber, and a sole that is usually made of brown or tan rubber. Although Chuck Taylors are made of various materials such as leather or suede, the original and most widely known version of the shoe is made from cotton canvas. The innovative detail of the original shoe was the "loose lining" of soft canvas that was intended to provide flexibility and prevent blisters. The Chuck Taylor II, an updated model, was announced by company management in July 2015. Incorporating Nike technology made from Ethylene Vinyl Acetate or EVA, it retains the outward appearance of the original shoe while including a full-length Lunarlon insole
