About Converse

Sometime in 1908, Marquis Mills Converse decided to start a rubber sneaker company, bypassing a rubber trust that prevented most companies from doing business directly with their retailers. Early catalogs bragged about how many trucks left the Converse factory in Malden, Massachusetts, delivering product directly to stores in Boston. Mr. Converse's idea worked. But more importantly, it survived.
