Converse is an American shoe company that has been making shoes, lifestyle fashion and athletic apparel since the early 20th century.
In his late 30s, Marquis Mills Converse, who was previously a respected manager at a footwear manufacturing firm, opened the Converse Rubber Shoe Company in Malden, Massachusetts in February 1908. The company was a rubber shoe manufacturer, providing winterized rubber soled footwear for men, women and children. By 1910, Converse was producing 4,000 shoes daily, but it was not until 1915 that the company began manufacturing athletic shoes for tennis.
When the U.S. entered World War II in 1941, Converse shifted production to manufacturing rubberized footwear, outerwear and protective suits for the military. Widely popular during the 1950s and 1960s, Converse promoted a distinctly American image with its Converse Yearbook. The Artist Charles Kerins created cover art that celebrated Converse's role in the lives of high school and college athletes.
Nowadays Converse makes sneakers and clothes for individuals everywhere who live creatively, optimistically and rebelliously. They exist to provoke, inspire and go along with them, whether that’s on a court, the green or the concrete, in a club, a studio or anywhere else.

Not just your regular eMart, the LifestyleMart the Singapore Armed Forces' (SAF's) new concept store, will be a one-stop shop for Operationally Ready National Servicemen (NSmen) and their families.
Measuring 6,000 sq ft in floor area, the LifestyleMart is almost eight times larger than the eMart at The Chevrons, the only other eMart not located in a military camp. The SAF's new concept eMart has opened at SAFRA Mount Faber. Named the LifestyleMart, the store aims to bring not only greater convenience to servicemen, but also a taste of military living to the public.
A team from the SAF's Headquarters Supply (HQ SUPPLY) has been working with one of the existing eMart contractors, ST Logistics, and SAFRA, since November 2009 to bring the concept to fruition.
Adapted from the designs of LASALLE College of the Arts students through a competition organised by ST Logistics in August 2009, the interior of LifestyleMart will carry "a raw, lofty feel like that of a warehouse, created using a lot of natural wood and oxidised metals."
The opening of the new store is also timely because of the recent review of eMart credits. With effect from January, NSmen have the flexibility to take an advance from their next allocation of credits should they require more credits to equip themselves adequately, especially for high-key overseas exercises.
