Converse /ˈkɒnvərs/ is an American shoe company with a production output that primarily consists of sportswear and lifestyle brand footwear founded by Marquis Mills Converse in Malden, Massachusetts (February 1908). In 2003, was purchased for $ 305 million (USD) as a subsidiary of Nike, Inc. Converse manufactures its products under the One Star, Chuck Taylor All Star, and Jack Purcell trade names. In fact, the All Star's rubber sole, smooth rounded top, and warp-around strip have become so recognizable that, in 2014, Converse filed a lawsuit before the U.S. International Trade Commission that accused Walmart, Skechers, Kmart and 28 other retailers and manufacturers for trademark infringements. In addition to footwear, the company sells other items globally through retailers in over 160 countries and through approximately 75 company-owned retail stores across the U.S.
