Converse began in 1908 in
Malden, Massachusetts as a rubber shoe company specializing in galoshes.
Soon after, they started using their rubber to make sneakers. In 1920, they
renamed their canvas basketball sneaker the "All Star." The name stuck.
What didn’t stick was their intention. Converse made them to sink jump shots
on the court. You, however, saw them as something more… and started wearing
their sneakers to do whatever you wanted. You played music, made art, skated
the streets and kicked back. You wore them as fashion. You wore them to
work. You customized them with your personal style. You did everything to
them, and in them. You saw their sneakers' unlimited potential. Now,
Converse wants to see your potential. Possibly a career at their company
is in your future. Learn more about job opportunities by visiting
