The Converse sneaker style we're familiar with today started life as a tennis shoe in the 1930's, although the brand itself has been around since 1908, starting life as the Converse Rubber Show Company in Massachusetts. The Converse sneaker has been a staple part of youth culture for generations ever since. Converse have been showing up in rock clubs, on the streets, on rappers, on icons, on rebels and on originals for more than 50 years. From All Star to Jack Purcell to CONS, Converse doesn't confine itself to one style or definition, you can be who you want to be in Converse. Synonymous with individuality, Converse is the fashion label of choice for individuals. This collection of men's Converse shorts includes relaxed quality cotton, chilled out jersey cut-offs and smarter canvas and chino shorts, all featuring the famous five pointed Converse star somewhere in the styling.
