Converse shoes were created in 1908 after founder Marquis Mills Converse decided that the world needed a rubber shoe company that would work directly with retailers. His ideas and his shoes have survived over 100 years now, making Converse one of the best known shoes of all time. Thanks to the age of technology, Converse lovers can make their own custom Converse sneakers on the Converse website with just a few easy clicks of a button.
