24 Converse Innovations

From Michael Jackson Kicks to Band-Aid All-Stars

— August 26, 2009 — Fashion
The Converse shoe brand is ridiculously old. Not Nirvana old, not Frank Sinatra old--keep going. Let me put it to you this way, Converse shoes started 4 years before Leonardo sank into the Atlantic with that big-ass ship. 1908 is the year Converse started, and the company is still going strong.

So how does the sneaker supplier keep itself modern in the current age? The answer is innovation. From waist-high sneakers to King of Pop All-Stars, this cluster showcases the most innovative and unique in the Conuniverse.
