Some of our favourite labels have had very unlikely beginnings! Converse footwear and clothing is the very epitome of street style and yet the Converse story began with the production of galoshes. In 1908 Marquis Mills founded the company and made protective footwear which was a million miles from the sports shoes that would eventually distinguish the brand.
The first Converse sports shoes were tennis shoes but there was a breakthrough moment in 1917 when the All Star basketball shoe was created. The style became an iconic shoe with its instantly recognisable star insignia. The company had few competitors and enjoyed a lengthy period of success before other collections began to challenge converse's supremacy. At this point Converse could have been lost for good but was rescued for us all by the intervention of none other than Nike.
The Converse star rose once more and this time the footwear has remained firmly at the top of the tree. It has been joined by a stylish collection of separates which boast the same casual cool qualities of the popular shoes. We are certainly sure that you will appreciate the fine polo shirts which are available in a pleasing range of colours. Each shirt is fashioned from high quality fabric and is completed by the Converse star.
If you are looking for stylish tops to add to your wardrobe then you really can't go wrong with Converse polo shirts.
