Converse Believes That Unleashing The Creative Spirit Will Change the World.
Sell. Don't Sell Out
You wear what you want and you don't like to be defined. It's your music on your stereo, it's your art on your walls, it's your life and you live it that way. Cool. That's what we're all about and we want you to bring that to work for us. We want people who are originals, who can communicate and help others find their originality. Sneakers and clothes are the skin we present to people. It might as well be unique.
