Converse makes sneakers and clothes for individuals everywhere who live creatively, optimistically, and rebelliously. Since its founding in 1908 in Malden, Massachusetts, by Marquis Mills Converse, Converse exists and will continue to exist to provoke, inspire, and go along with its audience—whether that's on the court, the green, or the concrete, in a club, a studio, or anywhere else. It's not about how old you are, but how good you are. Converse enters its second century by honoring its heritage of seeing things a little differently, loving people who want to change the world for the better, and basically celebrating the spirit of rebellion and originality in basketball, rock and roll, and anywhere else you find it. Wear Converse and wear a shoe that makes a statement.
