What the Chuck? Famous Converse Cameos In Movies

WishFlix is a new weekly series dedicated to film and highlighting different trends in movies.

For this first installment we’ll cover the timeless classic and ever ubiquitous Chuck Taylor All-Star by Converse. Initially produced as a basketball sneaker in 1917, Chuck requested that they redesign the sneaker with more support and flexibility for players. He at the time was a player-manager for Chicago based Converse All-Star Basketball team. Converse re-released the sneaker in 1922 and added Taylors signature to the ankle patch and birthed one of the most iconic pieces of footwear of all-time.
