We all skated in Converse long before any skateboard specific footwear was on the market. Chuck Taylor's were easily available when skate shoes were not and they were affordable too. Converse got it right this time around when making shoes for skateboarding. instead of designing completely new silhouettes they have focussed on existing, well loved models like the One Star and the CTAS which have been improved with advancements like better insoles. Their team includes legends like Pontus Alv, Rune Glifberg and Jason Jessee through to the unique talents of rippers like Aaron Herrington, Jake Johnson and Ben Raemers.
