What is the Converse All Star, the eternal classic sneaker?

The ” Converse Rubber Shoe Company ” was founded in 1908 by Marquis M. Converse in Malden, Massachusetts, USA. This was the predecessor company of the current Converse. Initially, the company manufactured rubber shoes that could be worked on in the rain and snow to cope with the cold Massachusetts winter climate. However, sales were concentrated in the snowy winter months, so the company began developing new products to see if there were any items that could be sold year-round. As a result, the “All Star” basketball shoe was introduced in 1917. The All Star is still loved by people around the world today, more than 100 years after its birth, as a universal fashion item that transcends the boundaries of basketball because of its almost unchanged and complete design from the first to the current model.

High cut vs. low cut! What are the criteria for choosing a white Converse All Star?

As you know, there are two main types of Converse All Star shoes: high-cut (ALL STAR HI) and low-cut (ALL STAR OX), and there must be many people who are confused about which All Star shoe to choose when considering which one to buy. Here are some criteria to help you make a choice when you are not sure which one to choose!

Converse All Star HI

The original All Star model, created in 1917, was a high-cut version. If you want to stick with the classic All Star, we recommend choosing the high-cut model. Since the laces run up to the ankle, it is more troublesome to take them on and off than the low-cut model. The All Star logo printed on the inside is also a detail unique to the high cut.

Converse All Star OX

The low-cut version, which has a sleeker form than the high-cut, is a derivative model developed 40 years after the birth of the All Star. The “OX” in the model name stands for Oxford. As mentioned above, the low-cut type is easier to put on and take off than the high-cut type, and its uncluttered design makes it easier to coordinate with other styles. If you are looking for a simpler design, why not choose low-cut?
