Yesterday I bought a pair of Converse One Star, One Star? When did Converse start making One Star and whats the difference between Converse One Star and Converse All Stars?, I asked myself.
In the 1970's, Converse marketed at least four suede sneaker models similar to the classic "Chuck Taylor" All Star canvas basketball shoe. They were very similar. The major difference between the shoes were patterns on the side. These models included:
- The "One Star", which used the standard All Star sole.
- A "stripe-star-stripe" model, which used the standard All Star sole.
- A "star and chevron" model, which used a slightly modified All Star sole.
- A three-striped model in the COACH line.
