In 1908, Converse started making tires and rubber-soled shoes out of Malden, Massachusetts. The tire business faded, but basketball buoyed the shoe trade. In 1918, Chuck Taylor joined the company; in 1935, Jack Purcell became a badminton champ while wearing his signature custom-designed Converse. Affordable and iconic, these sneakers have been worn by members of every subculture from rock 'n' rollers to jocks. Now in its second century, Converse is perhaps the most singularly American shoe to grace feet from the sandlot to the runway. But it doesn't stop there. The sportswear brand that was there from the beginning also offers a range of accessories with the same timeless vibe as their kicks, and with Black Canvas — their first standalone apparel collection, launched in 2011 — they’ll have you outfitted in classic-but-current style from head to toe.
Call it the perfect alternative to the classic tee. A Henley gives you all the laid-back charm of your favorite crewneck, but with an extra helping of understated style. Pair it with a jacket for a dressed-down take on tailoring, and let it stand on its own once things really warm up. However you decide to wear your Henley, pick it up in our sale.
Our latest selection from Converse Black Canvas is brimming with laid-back spring essentials like polos, henleys, and shorts, plus a ton of hoodies and pullovers. In short, everything you need to master the art of casual style this spring.
