It doesn’t matter at all that the Converse name is over one hundred years old. What started as a rubber company is now one of the most loved and enduring brands in the clothing world, and that fact isn’t likely to change any time soon. No matter the age or occupation, men and women alike understand and recognize the Converse logo and style. Rather than losing its power over the course of a century, the brand just keeps getting stronger.
What really makes this brand stand out from the crowd is that they never really have to change anything to keep their current spot at the top. The very same shoe design the brand has made for decades is still the most popular seller at the company, and it doesn’t seem as though that will change any time soon. How many other companies out there could still sell the same thing over and over again without eventually losing steam?
Of course, you can expect more from Converse than the revered Chuck Taylor high-top sneakers. Not only are there dozens of other shoe designs, but you can also find several clothing articles, bags, hats, and sporting equipment. Some of these items have the very same classic design that Converse is known for, while others are just as cutting edge as anything else you’ll find. Almost all of the articles are created for those who prefer to be laid back and casual at all times, but a good pair of Chucks can still look great with a buttoned down shirt. This, of course, is why the brand is so popular. It’s versatile even in its unchanging nature. People have always loved it and always will. The shoe, the shirt, the bag – it will all be accepted at fashion, no matter what you’re wearing it with. Posted by Roger Martin for Stand Out.
