The logo for the Converse brand is not only easy to understand, but it is also very unique. It looks sophisticated and draws attention regardless of the background, whether it’s a billboard, a textile symbol, or a simple black tag. Since the world trusts the Converse brand because of its quality assurance, knowing how this Converse logo looks on a product is one of the most common ways to tell a real Converse product from a fake one. Our focus is on its identity image. However, we will show how to tell a fake Converse sneaker from the original one using the logo, as well as why the logo is on the inside and not the outside, so let’s get on with it.

What is a Converse Symbol?

Because of their simple but unique logo, you’ll be able to spot a pair of Converse shoes right away. The Converse brand’s logo is a star with five lobes and a Chevron. The star was first used in 1963 when the company decided to eventually switch to a unique logo. Before 1963, the company didn’t have a symbol that stayed in place. But aside from the star and Chevron, there is the Chuk Taylor All-Star logo that’s always on the inside of the brand’s products.

The Converse brand was founded in 1908 by Marquis Mills Converse. The brand didn’t have an iconic symbol until 1963.  The primary element that has been part of the brand symbol is a star with five lobes. The star design was based on the famous All-Star brand of shoes, which first came out in 1932. Converse means the opposite. This explains why the Chuk Taylor All-Star logo is always on the inside.

Why is the Converse Logo Displayed on the Outside of the Product?

The Converse logo is only on the outside for one reason: it is a forgery. Because the products of this company are marked on the interior, the circular patch containing the symbol of a five-pointed star cannot be found on the exterior of the authentic pair of shoes. Meanwhile, this applies to the Chuck Taylor All-Star logo. It’s usually on the right side of your left shoe, and on the left side of your right shoe. The two logos mostly face each other.

The logo under the sole of your shoes reveals whether your shoes are original or not. On the back of the sole of the original Converse shoes, there is a large Converse logo. In fact, it is situated directly in the middle of the heel area. The first version is labeled “ALL STAR” and has a star in the middle, while the second version is labeled “Converse All Star”. Anything different from any of these simply means one thing. Your lovely shoes are not the product of Converse but obviously fake.

Does Converse Have the Logo on Both Sides?

Converse shoes do not have emblems on both sides of the shoe. It is just one on both sides of your shoe. 

Converse Logo History

Every brand has its own story. Within the context of each story lies the success, challenges, and drawbacks they have to deal with to become successful. Presently, anyone who sees the sign of Chuck’s Taylor or All-Star or the five-lobed star with a Chevron by the right will identify it as Converse. It wasn’t so before now. Let’s take a peek at the transition of the Converse logo, since its inception;

#1. 1963 – 1977

The Converse logo, which was designed in 1963, was the first sign that stood for the Converse brand. It was a simple design consisting of a black star with a wordmark. While the star was on the left, the word “Converse” was printed in lowercase letters and positioned to the right of it. Even though a lot of people thought it was pretty simple, it was clear that it had a sense of modern sophistication, which made it a great choice for a powerful and forward-thinking company. The Converse logo, which is very simple, also shows what the brand is all about.

#2. 1977 – 2003

In 1977, we saw the debut of not one, but two new Converse logos. The company was given an air of greater authority once it was redesigned in 1977. At the time that this article was being written, the Converse 1977 logo was the longest logo in use since the company’s founding. It was put to use for almost the equivalent of 25 years. The first version of the Converse logo, which came out in 1977, was a black square with a white star in the middle and round angels on the corners. It also includes a wordmark, just like the previous logo did.

The wordmark “Converse” is right under the big black star in a square logo, so everyone can see it. However, the wordmark does have a distinguishing feature that stands out. With the exception of the letter N, all of the letters in the wordmark were capitalized. The letter N was written in a small letter font. The wordmark for Converse 1977 is presented in a sans-serif style and is presented in a bold fashion.

The following year saw the introduction of the second logo. It only has the black star, which is set against a white background. The wordmark that is to its left is similarly in the same font as the primary logo, but the “O” in “mark” is colored white and has a white star in the middle of it.

#3. 2003 – 2007

The company unveiled a new monogram in the year 2003. The previous Converse logo was actually made better than the new one that it replaced. The company’s mascot started to take on a more distinctive appearance over the course of several years. It was straightforward, and elegant, as usual. We observed that the star insignia had been changed so that it was now enclosed by a sizable amount of white within a densely filled circle of black. It had the appearance of being invigorating and robust, while also being youthful and airy.

The Converse 2003 logo has something in common with that of 1963, and that is the wordmark.  All of the letters in the wordmark were capitalized (with the exception of the letter “N”). The lettering was done in a contemporary, bold sans-serif design that is somewhat reminiscent of Zoria Bold in appearance.

Later on, in the same year, the company introduced a new logo to replace the previous one. The alternative mark consisted of a black star that was expanded without having any borders, and the wordmark that was placed below it was done in a larger typeface.

#4. 2007 – 2011

The Converse logo from 2003 was known for how simple it was, but it didn’t last long. After a period of four years, the company will come up with a new icon for the brand’s identity. On the other hand, this particular version was created in the 1970s by a man named Jim Labadini. Nobody truly understands why the logo wasn’t used from the time it was conceived in 1997 until it was adopted in 2007. The emblem used in 2007 A dark star may be seen to the right of the chevron in the diagram. Symbolizing motion and vigor in the world.

It always has a wordmark, which is shown underneath the emblem, and this is standard practice.

#5. 2011 – 2017

In 2011, Converse made the decision to bring back an older version of one of its logos.

If my memory serves me well, the company presented two different logos in the year 1977. The Converse logo that was used in 2011 is very close to the alternate logo that was used in 1977. The biggest difference is that there wasn’t a big star next to the wordmark. The old design was replaced with a simple black wordmark that featured a white star in the middle of the letter “O.” The striking, distinctive typography, as well as the symbol of a star that is easily recognizable.

#6. 2017 – Today

After a period of four years, Converse made the decision to rebrand the company’s logo. The rebranding that took place in 2017 incorporates aspects of the logo that Jim designed in the 1970s as well as those of the wordmark that was used in the 2010s. In spite of the fact that the characteristic typeface of the brand has been modernized, the star with the chevron pattern is once again a key feature of the Converse logo.

The wordmark is rendered in a sans-serif typeface comparable to Typold Extended Black, except every letter is capitalized.

Converse Logo: Color

Since its inception, the Converse brands have made only use of two neutral colors, and those are white and black. Some will deem these two colors inappropriate for a brand, not Converse. For the brand, its management, and its team, black is a color that tells the viewer that the brand is better, more elegant, and honest. While the color white is associated with innocence (purity) and allure.

The Converse logo is kept simple on purpose because this has been shown to work well in every way.

Why Is the Converse Logo on the Inside?

Let’s clarify something before we get on to why the Converse logo is on the inside. First, the official logo of the Converse brand is quite different from that of the Chuck Taylor All-Star trademark. The brand’s official logo is a black star with five lobes and a Chevron. The Chucks Taylor All-Star logo is a circle with a large star in the center, with Chucks written on the left and Taylor on the right side of the star. Additionally, Converse is seen above the circle, and All-Star beneath it.

Now when people say the Converse logo is inside and not outside, most of the time, about 95% are referring to the Chucks Taylor All-Star trademark, not the brand’s official logo. However, both are inside.

The black star and the chevron are seen inside the shoe, right on the insole. Although this may wear off over time, it’s quite visible in every new converse shoe.

On the other hand, Chuck Taylor’s All-Star trade is also seen on the counter. But we call it inside because both the left and the right are facing each other. In other words, the left shoe has its Taylor trademark on the right side while the right shoe has it on the left side.

The first version of the All-Star shoe was introduced in 1935 and was at first marketed under the name Converse All-Star. In 1946, the brand signed a deal with Chuk Taylor who was a basketball player. After the deal, the brand’s name changed from All-Star to Chuck Taylor All-Star.

1947 was the year that saw the Converse emblem first appear on the inside of the shoes. As was just mentioned, this is because, during that time period, individuals were wearing them outside of their athletic wear, and Converse wanted a means to distinguish those shoes as being the authentic version of the Converse brand.

In 1947, the Converse brand emblem was embroidered on the inside of the shoe for the first time. Since that time, it has never been anywhere else but the inside of the shoe.

The Beginnings of Chuck Taylor’s All-Star

Converse first introduced the All-Star model with the goal of catering to basketball players. The Converse All-Star was originally designed for use only on the basketball court, but in 1935 it was re-released as a sneaker for everyday wear. This was because people started using it for everyday wear rather than something meant for sport.

Why Is The Converse Logo On The Inside Of The Sneaker?

There are several reasons why the All-Star logo is visible to all.  The following are some of these;

  • The first was to show off your favorite sneaker brand.
  • I do not know how true this is, but many believe it preserves the leather of the shoe.
  • To prevent discomfort and keep your feet warm when the weather is cold.
  • To prevent the logo from becoming worn or damaged as a result of constant rubbing on the socks.

Founder

In 1908, Marquis Mills Converse laid the groundwork for what would become the Converse Rubber Shoe Company in Malden, Massachusetts. He was only 47 when he established the company under the name Converse Rubber Shoe Company. Initially, the company offered high-quality rubber shoes and winterized rubber-soled footwear for all customers. In 1915, the company started making tennis shoes, which was an addition to what it already did.

In 1915, the company started making tennis shoes, which was an addition to what it already did. In 1917, the business produced the “Non-Skids,” which were the precursor to the present All-Star shoes and were marketed by the company under that name. The upper of the shoe was made of canvas, while the sole was made of rubber; it was intended to be worn by basketball players.

Chuck Taylor’s Impact

Charles “Chuck” Taylor, an American basketball player who had played at a semi-professional level, started working for Converse as a salesman in 1921.

Within a year of Taylor’s employment, the firm had implemented his suggestions for enhancing the shoe’s design to improve its flexibility and ankle support. These modifications were made. The newly redesigned shoe featured a distinctive All-Star emblem on the circular patch that was located at the back of the ankle for added protection. After Chuck Taylor’s autograph was affixed to the ankle patch as his endorsement, the shoes were known as Chuck Taylor All Stars and were the first pair of athletic shoes to have a celebrity endorse them.

Taylor sponsored basketball clinics all over the United States at high school and college gyms as well as YMCAs. During these clinics, he taught people how to play basketball by teaching them the basics. His goal was to get more basketball players to buy Converse All-Star shoes. Because the firm wanted to boost sales of its All-Star basketball shoes, it formed a traveling squad with its headquarters in Chicago.

It actually works, and Converse, to date, will not deny that Chuck Taylor is one of its strongest forces in history. With his effort, a sizable number of professional basketball players began donning All-Stars. From 1936 through 1968, the Converse All-Star was the official athletic shoe of the Olympic Games. At one point, the US military even made All-Stars its official training shoe.

Major Setbacks, Achievements, And Success Stories

When we look at the Converse brand today, we credit them for quality assurance by considering its challenges, drawbacks, and difficulties. In fact, we rarely remember that as though it doesn’t encounter challenges. But the truth is, the brand has been through a lot, and luckily, it survived it. Let’s look at some of the major setbacks, achievements, and success stories of the Converse brand.

1908

In 1908, Marquis M. Converse opened the Converse Rubber Co. in Malden, Massachusetts, a company that later became the giant empire known as Converse Inc.

1910

By 1910, the company had grown its factory to the point where it could make 4,000 pairs of boots and rubbers every day. They were practically producing a large number of shoes every single day.

1915

In 1915, the company began making tennis-specific athletic shoes. A single decision is partly responsible for the brand’s achievement to date.  

1916

In 1916, they wanted to grow their business. Basketball was on the verge of becoming as popular as football or tennis, but there weren’t any shoes made just for it yet. So it was indeed a great opportunity that the brand maximized.

1917

In 1917, the branch launched a design for basketball players. It was known as the Converse All-Star game. Luckily, a basketball player known as Chuck Taylor was one of the first people to wear it.

1918

As of 1918, Converse basketball sneakers were available everywhere. Remember, the plant has a plant that makes about 4000 shoes a day. So it was no surprise when the Converse All-Star basketball shoe became popular.

1921

Charles “Chuck” H. Taylor, a famous basketball player, joined the Converse sales team in 1921 and became the brand’s first player endorser. This helped All-Star become a big hit quickly. He wasn’t just a basketball player, he was a good salesman.

1929

Tragedy struck in 1929. The giant shoe company ran into money problems and went bankrupt

1932

Most people are aware that Chuck was a basketball player, as well as a salesperson. However, not everyone knows he designs shoes as well. This was a good plus for the Converse brand. He was so good at promoting Converse All Stars and made important changes to the design of the shoe, Chuck Taylor’s name was added to the ankle patch in 1932.

1933

Albert Wechsler, who was the owner of Converse, could no longer afford to keep it running because f the economy and had to sell it to the Stone family. The Stone family bought Converse in 1933 and ran it for 39 years, during which time it grew into a major shoe brand.

In 1949, the classic black and white high-top shoe came out.

1953

In Canovanas, Puerto Rico, in 1953, Converse set up the Coastal Footwear Corporation.

1968

In 1968, Charles H. “Chuck” Taylor was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.
He was called the “Ambassador to Basketball” because he worked so hard to get people interested in the sport.

1982

In 1982, a group of Allied Corporation’s top managers bought Converse. 

It also sold 12 million pairs in 1982. The Jordan X Converse was launched to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Micheal Jordan’s famous winning

1989

In 1989, the Rolling Stones chose the Chuck Taylor as the official shoe for their Steel Wheels Tour.

1990

By 1990, the brand had signed contracts with more than 14 pros from 11 different teams across the U.S.

1991

But the new parent company ran into a lot of money problems and had to file for bankruptcy in 1991.

1992

Before it came out of bankruptcy in the fall of 1992, Converse had a severely low budget to help its brands, which were falling fast. Luckily for the brand, it got help with the Interco financial restructuring

1993

In 1993, Converse came out with the Run ‘N’ Gun, which had a patented React cushioning system made of gas and gel in the heel to absorb shock and give more control when moving.

1994

By the end of the year, Converse had lost $71.7 million. 

1995

1995, wasn’t great for the brand in any way. The second half of 1995 was a disaster. The brand had several layoffs, shoes that leaked, and problems at its new subsidiary. Additionally, the brand acquired Converse Inc., which was a disaster, even though it gave them licensed sportswear for professional teams.

2003

In July of 2003, Nike bought Converse for $309 million.

2012

By November 2012, the last dozen NBA players who wore Converse shoes had either left the league or switched brands of shoes over the course of a year and a half.

In 2012, Converse joined the (RED) campaign as a partner, along with other well-known brands like Bugaboo, Girl, and Nike Inc.

2013

The Converse logo is made up of a five-pointed star, a chevron, and the company’s name. The star, irrespective of its color, is a symbol of excellence and high quality. The wordmark, on the other hand, is delicate letters that produced a sense of warmth and playfulness, which reflected the personality of the company as well as the items that it sold.

The brand’s management team made a statement that pioneered the new logo. According to them, “Converse exists to serve the daring spirit of youth with instruments that facilitate movement(s).

How Can You Tell Fake Converse?

The following are some of the simple ways to disguise between original and fake COnverse;

#1. Constantly Compare Prices

As much as you want to get a good deal, you want to buy the best. Generally, Converse Chuck Taylors are normally priced at $50 for low tops and $55 for high tops. Anything less than that should raise an eyebrow unless it is specified that they are running a promotion, the shoes are reduced, or it is a coupon-discounted sale.  It doesn’t mean you can’t get it at a lower price, but please ensure it’s the original you are buying.

#2. Examine the Packaging

All new, authentic Converse All-Star shoes arrive in a clearly labeled Converse box. The box is black with brown stripes around the bottom. The top, front, and right sides of the lid should include prints of the company’s wordmark logo. Inside the shoes, there is additional tissue wrapping and, at times, stuffing paper.

Additionally, the side of the box should also provide shoe information such as size, style, and color, as well as a barcode and a QR (Quick Response) code. The underside of the box should also have a print of the All-Star shoe sole.

#3. Examine the Logo Patch

Checking out the logo placement is also another way to spot fake Converse shoes. If you come across a shoe with the logo on the outside, it is plainly a forgery. It was originally created to protect the athlete’s ankle, hence it was positioned on the inside.

Additionally, the logo patch is a white, spherical, screen-printed rubber patch with the label “CONVERSE ALL-STAR” in red uppercase letters and the “Chuck Taylor” signature in navy blue lettering, separated by a five-pointed star.

#4. Check the Heel

The heel of every Converse Chuck Taylor sneaker contains a rubber patch. This rectangular patch bears the same branding as the low-top All Stars’ fabric logo patch.

On top is a little “CONVERSE” text, and on the bottom is “ALL-STAR” with a characteristic star emblem in between.

 Another great way to spot fake Converse is to take a close look at the sole. Any leftover adhesive visible along the rubber patch’s edges signifies it’s fake. 

#5. Examine the Tongue

The tongue, whether low- or high-top, should have a little patch on the inside.

This patch carries information on the shoe’s origin, model number, shoe size, material, QR code, and unique serial numbers for each shoe. When it comes to examining the tongue, keep an eye on the border. Once you notice zigzag stitching, do not buy it, it’s fake. 

#6. Examine the Toe Caps and Toe Protector

The distinctive white toe caps of Converse sneakers must be constructed of firm rubber. It must also be straight and parallel to the bottom laces. Genuine All-Star sneakers have a smaller toe capsize than counterfeit Chucks. 

There are also points to look out for with the rubber toe guard. The top should have diagonal lines, the center should have a crisscrossed diamond pattern, and the bottom should have a smaller diamond pattern.

#7. Check the Soles

The sole of every pair of Converse All-Star sneakers is designed with a distinctive waffle pattern. It resembles a patchwork of forms and lines; specifically, diamonds, diagonals, crisscrosses, and horizontals. The Converse name and star mark are both subtly displayed on the outsoles of authentic Converse All-Star shoes. The “CONVERSE ALL STAR” logo and letters will be obvious.  It is recommended that the inner soles of a pair of Converse All Stars match the color of the canvas lining. Once it doesn’t, it is a sign that it’s fake. 

#8. Check the Stitching and Paint

The uppers of the Converse shoes are stitched together to ensure they last. Genuine Converse sneakers will always feature strong stitches on the upper. Except for the tonal stitching found in the monochromatic and ivory color options, the stitching is typically white. Additionally, the rubber piping’s paint job must be straight and uniform. Fake ones often have an uneven sheen and look worn.

#9. Check the Eyelets

They are obviously fake if the eyelets, especially the medial ones, have been polished. Genuine All Stars by Converse will have matte eyelets. They are also symmetrical on the upper and stay put.

What is the Difference Between Converse All-Star and Chuck Taylor?

The Chuck 70 is stronger and lasts longer because it has a thicker canvas, more rubber foxing, better cushioning, and better arch support. The All-Star is more practical for weightlifting because it is lighter, less expensive, and comes in more colors. 

Does Nike Still Own Converse?

Yes, as of the time of this write-up, Nike is still the owner of Converse.

There are several reasons why the Converse brand is popular. This includes the great quality of the rubber and canvas used in its construction, the rich history, the wardrobe staple, the longevity, versatility, and iconic stands. Let’s get to see what this is about;

#1. Rich History

The brand has a rich history thanks to Chuck Taylor, who popularized the brand with his deal in 1923.  From that point forward, the sneakers skyrocketed in popularity, eventually becoming the shoe of choice for several basketball stars. The shoe thereafter found its way into the hands of military personnel and Olympic competitors.

#2. Wardrobe Staple

The Converse All-Star is an important wardrobe component, along with your plain white t-shirt and light-faded denim. There is no sign that the sneaker reigns as a fashion main.

#3. Versatility

You can dress your Converse sneakers however you want for any occasion. You can pack less, which is great for folks who don’t want to take a lot of clothes on trips because of how versatile they are. Unless you are someone who is deliberate about carrying extra clothes, a few of them can fit your converse. 

#4. All Stars Are Iconic

The Converse is popular because of its iconic design. Very few sneaker styles have managed to maintain their popularity across the decades. Although sneaker fashion has come and gone, Converse has remained a constant, earning the brand “icon” status. 

#5. Longevity

Converse has a rubber sole. Anyone who has a pair of All-Star sneakers would agree that they are one of the most durable styles available. We attribute it mostly to the rubber bottom. 

Why is Converse So Comfortable?

There are several things that make Converse sneakers so comfortable. They range from the materials to the sole, as well as its makeup. Let’s how each of these, contributes to the brand. 

#1. Make-Up

The makeup of Converse sneakers is one reason why they are so pleasant to wear. Most of the time, the stitching on these shoes is very secure and snug, which helps to keep feet from chafing against one another.

#2. Soles

Converse shoes often have rubber outsoles, which offer a high level of comfort and durability. Even if you have to stand or walk for long periods of time, it is still comfortable for your feet.
Converse shoes are known for their high quality and many of them have non-slip soles. Because of this, you may wear them anywhere without worrying that they will slide or fall off.

#3. Materials

The construction and materials used to make Converse sneakers are a large part of what makes them so comfortable.

For instance, the canvas is commonly used for the top part of the shoe since it is lightweight and breathable. This ensures that your feet remain dry and comfortable even after long periods of wear.

Why does Converse Have Two Holes?

Many people who wear trainers know that, after a long period of walking, their feet might get hot and sticky; this is why the holes in shoes were invented. The circular holes allow air to flow freely while you’re on the move, keeping your feet from getting too hot and stinky.

Are Converse Meant to be Worn Without Socks?

This is entirely your decision to make. On the other hand, if you wear your sneakers without socks, you may be inviting bacteria into your shoes. If you do not wear socks, you may experience uncontrollable perspiration on your feet. This unwanted dampness has the potential to soak into your shoes, which may then become contaminated with bacteria and germs.

Aside from the above, you will probably get blisters. Not only will you end up with blisters, but doing so is incredibly unhygienic and almost always leaves a terrible odor that just won’t go away, even after you take your shoes off.

Is Vans or Converse Better?

Vans are not only fashionable but also very comfy to wear when walking. They are comfortable enough to wear throughout the day. Converse, on the other hand, offers some people a comfortable option for day-to-day use.

However, Vans are unequaled when it comes to skating; nevertheless, for everyday use, we’d argue that Converse sneakers are preferable. This is simply due to how easy it is to style them thanks to the versatile design of the Converse sneakers.

Why is there Fuzz on the Bottom of Converse?

Fuzz is constantly present on most new shoes. However, we have never questioned its presence. You might have noticed that there is a wonderful fuzzy feeling inside your new pair of Chuck Taylors when you first put them on. It’s nothing to worry about. There are two primary reasons why fuzz is present on your Converse sneakers.

The first is that the possibility of slipping while moving around is reduced if it has a fuzzy coating applied to the arch area and the edges of the sole. Secondly, it turns out that the felt is not there for functional reasons but rather for economic ones; shoes with fuzzy soles are taxed less when imported than shoes with rubber soles are.
