It's hard to imagine a time when Converse wasn't a premium brand that everyone knew about, but back in 1908 Converse trainers was founded in the US. Originally designed and manufactured as an athletic shoe, it wasn't until American basketball player Charles Hollis "Chuck" Taylor started wearing the All Star trainers in 1917 that the brand shot to fame. Before long, Converse became a brand that wasn't strictly for the sportsmen and women of the world, they were for all outdoor lifestyles. Amassing a cult following, most people have a pair of quality Cons in their shoe collection and it's no surprise why. Lightweight, comfortable, packed with innovation and hard wearing, Converse shoes were built to last and in fact, you'll probably find that most people have still got their first pair of Converse Allstars in their wardrobe, refusing to throw them out. Today, Converse footwear is as famous as it's always been, and Blackleaf has an amazing selection of Men's Converse, kid converse shoes and Converse trainers for women too. From the sandals to the high-tops, we have Converse for everyone's style.
