Converse

In 1908, Converse started making tires and rubber-soled shoes out of Malden, Massachusetts. The tire business faded, but basketball buoyed the shoe trade. In 1918, Chuck Taylor joined the company; in 1935, Jack Purcell became a badminton champ while wearing his signature custom-designed Converse. Affordable and iconic, these sneakers have been worn by members of every subculture from rock 'n' rollers to jocks. Now in its second century, Converse is perhaps the most singularly American shoe to grace feet from the sandlot to the runway.

When: 05 January 2012 - 08 January 2012
Open: 12:00AM - 12:00AM
