    Details

    This expressive piece shows what appears to be a worn pair of converse boot with a blue star on a gold background, possibly waiting for their last great walk. This is all told through magnificent oil paint strokes on canvas.
    The Converse All-Star was introduced in 1917, one of the first specifically designed to be worn when playing basketball. Taylor started wearing them in 1917 as a high school basketball player at Columbus High School. In 1921 Taylor went to the sales offices of Converse Shoes in Chicago searching for a job. S.R. "Bob" Pletz, an avid sportsman, then hired him. Within a year, Taylor's suggestions of changing the design of the shoe to provide enhanced flexibility and support, and also including patch to protect the ankle, were adopted. The raison star logo was then immediately included on the raison. By 1932 Chuck Taylor's name was added to the patch, and the shoe became the Chuck Taylor All-Stars, which are the most successful selling basketball shoes in the world.
