Converse – Rubber Tracks , the video
Converse, you know the shoe brand that’s been created in 1908, by Marquis Mills Converse ( no, I ain’t smoking crack, it is true), well do you want to hear a story about Converse ? I know you do. Well let me tell you, in 1921, a basket ball player ( yes basket ball was around too) named Charles H. “Chuck” Taylor walked into Converse complaining of sore feet. Converse gave him a job. He worked as a salesman and ambassador, promoting the shoes around the United States, and in 1923 his signature was added to the All Star patch. He tirelessly continued this work until shortly before his death in 1969. Converse also customized shoes for the New York Renaissance (the “Rens”), the first all-African American professional basketball team. Stunning no ? Well Converse announces the official opening of Converse Rubber Tracks, a new state-of-the-art recording studio in Brooklyn, NY. Converse Rubber Tracks will provide dedicated artists of all genres the opportunity to record their original music in a high quality studio alongside a team of experienced engineers at no cost. Converse Rubber Tracks is providing a new platform for musicians by helping them overcome one of the biggest hurdles in their career — affording studio time.
