The Converse star may be instantly recognisable across the world today, but the

brand started out with humble origins as a manufacturer of basketball sneakers

over 100 years ago. Evolutions in technology and design saw the brand continue

to evolve, moving away from basketball to become a firm favourite among sports

legends, rock stars and celebrity figures.

Converse is today an essential style in every man and woman’s wardrobe, and the

Converse children’s collection at AllSole comprises varying designs of the brand’s

timeless All Star low-top and high-top styles for boys and girls.

Dating back to the end of the Second World War, Dr. Martens was born

out of the unlikely marriage of a German inventor and an English family from

Northamptonshire. A robust construction comprising soft leather uppers and

soles originally made from tyre rubber saw Dr. Martens’ boots rise to become

the worker’s boot. Dr. Martens was later inherited by English subculture groups

who transformed the brand to give it its iconic status as a symbol of rebellion

and revolution.

The Dr. Martens boot silhouette has remained unchanged for decades, and its

signature look is retained for the brand’s latest children’s collection. Originally

designed for comfort and durability by a German doctor, Dr. Martens’ leather

construction and air-cushioned sole makes them a perfect fit for children.
