Converse is the story of a sneaker that started on the court and moved to the stage and street. We’re a company ready for change and that’s who we hire: the most malleable, the most innovative, and the most creative. Our clothes and sneakers have been worn by rebels, rockers, rappers, artists, thinkers, and individuals. So that’s why we hire individuals. So we’re speaking the same language.

What we wear is personal. But envy is universal. To make that unique thing, the clothing someone reaches for and thinks, “This is me” is a cool power to wield. If you care about clothes, about how it wears, broadcasts, and creates tidal waves of coveting, then you’re our designer. Plus, you can wear what you want to work.
Today, Converse is still at the heart of youth, worn by musicians, artists, dreamers, thinkers, and influencers. Always authentic, we're still celebrating one-of-a-kind and self-expression, but it’s about the new generation. It’s about the kids who are not afraid to make an impact, who are not afraid to stand out and create their own path. Converse is resetting the brand and it starts today.
