The Converse outlet in Metzingen
The Converse outlet at the OUTLETCITY METZINGEN attracts shoppers with the individual and distinctive sneaker culture of the world-famous "Converse Chucks" at bargain prices. The "Converse" label was founded in 1908 and – rather than the well-known All Star Converse sneaker – its original business consisted of designing and producing rubber boots. The label very quickly entered the rubber footwear market, where it specialised in galoshes. It then went on to use the rubber material for its boots to produce sneakers, the soles of which still feature this familiar material. In 1920, the label came up with the new name of "All Star" for its basketball sneakers. Still a byword among customers and footwear fans, the name also conveys the great versatility of this famous sneaker. Originally designed as a basketball shoe, in practice, it was not actually used for "shooting hoops" but for almost every other conceivable purpose, giving the footwear a real cult status. The great versatility of Converse Chucks appeals to fashion icons all over the world. Converse sneakers add the perfect finishing touch to both casual looks and elegant outfits, making them firm favourites among fashionistas.
Cult, personality and fashion in a single shoe
The boundless style options opened up by Converse sneakers turn each Converse wearer into a trendsetter. From fashion to art and music – the popularity of Converse Chucks has permeated every area. Generations have had fun in Converse All Stars, from skateboarding to concerts, with these cult shoes proving the perfect footwear for every occasion. Today, the spirit and hype of "Converse Chucks" are perpetuated in the All Stars, Cons and Jack Purcell sneakers. But it's not just Converse's sneakers that have been delighting generations, the label's collections are another success story. Converse bags, Converse T-shirts and other Converse clothing enjoy a strong following among both male and female consumers, thanks, in particular, to the brand's great individuality.
