Converse has been around since 1908, beginning as a rubber company before transitioning to sneakers and boots. Now most readily recognized for the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star sneaker, Converse refuses to confine itself to one style or definition. Converse Eyewear is a natural extension of the individualistic styles popularized by the sneaker. Nicolas Roseillier, Creative Director of Converse Eyewear, brings a background as an architect to the design of premium eyewear that helps the wearer, "to describe themselves." The Converse eyewear collection is all about cutting-edge designs expressly for consumers seeking unique, trend-setting frames. Inspired by the legendary urban street wear, Converse eyeglasses are as stylish as their All-Star footwear. The Converse brand has a heritage of originality with roots in Rock & Roll and basketball. Its eyewear collection carries this tradition forward with creative styles and a rebellious spirit. The brand values looking at things from a different perspective, and appreciating those who want to better the world, both of which have propelled its century of success. Converse is famous for its courageous character and individual design, suited to those who demand a look that is current but never trendy. Always original and individual, these vividly colourful frames never outshine the personality of the person behind them.
