In 1908 the Converse Rubber Shoe Company (also known as the Boston Rubber Shoe Company) was opened in Malden by Marquis M. Converse, a formerly respected manager of a shoe company. The company was a manufacturer for rubber shoes that provided shoes for men, women and children. Converse produced 4,000 shoes in 1910, but it was not until 1915 when the company began producing tennis shoes for athletes. The turning point of the company was in 1917 when the Converse All-Star basketball shoe was introduced. This was an innovation, since the sport only existed for 25 years. In 1921, a basketball player named Chuck Taylor walked into the store complaining that he had painful feet, Converse gave him a job. He worked as a representative and ambassador, as a result of making the shoe very well known around the United States. In 1923, after publishing a retrospective of the first 60 years of basketball, and teaching his first basketball clinic at North Carolina State University, his signature was added to the All Star. He continued indefatigably with his work until shortly before his death in 1969. On July 9, 2003, the company was taken over by the mega brand Nike.
