Released in 1917, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star quickly became a footwear essential. Even before the creation of Converse Skateboarding (CONS), the Chuck Taylor rapidly became an iconic model within the subcultures of the 1980s, starting with skateboarding.
After an unsuccessful attempt to launch a skate range in the 1990s, Converse Skate was established in 2009 with the formation of a substantial skateboard team and the introduction or adaptation of models for skateboarding. This included the Chuck Taylor High, Mid, and Low (Ox), as well as their first pro model at the time, the Pappalardo, followed by the One Star, Pro Leather, and others, which now make up a diverse range of skate shoes.
As Converse is now part of the Nike family, the brand benefits from Nike's technological advancements, incorporating features such as Zoom Air, OrthoLite, and Lunarlon to ensure safety and comfort while skateboarding.
The extensive team comprises Louie Lopez, Bobby De Keyzer, Sage Elsesser, Jake Johnson, Zered Basset, Sean Pablo, Kevin Rodrigues, and several Nozbone skateboarders like Rémy Taveira, Oscar Candon, Roman Gonzalez, Ebou Sanyang, Morgan Katomba, Marca Barbier, and more.
