IS THERE A CONVERSE NUS TOTUM DISCOUNT?
There is no NUS Converse discount scheme at the moment for students to save. This includes not being included in the NUS Totum card scheme.

ARE THERE ANY STUDENT BEANS DISCOUNTS?
Nope, there is no association between Student Beans and Converse.
Usually, you would be able to get a unique student discount code to use at the online check-out but there is none.

5. MORE ABOUT CONVERSE
It’s most likely that as soon as you read the name Converse, you knew exactly what we were talking about. You can probably even picture one in your head right now!
Post-war, the company grew popularity as an Americana-style brand and promoted its image amongst US college students and alumni with yearbooks and associated marketing.
They were for a while the official footwear suppliers of the NBA (National Basketball Association), but when other athletic apparel brands such as Nike and Puma began to grow, they sadly lost their market monopoly.
The star and chevron logo which remains on the shoes today was created by an employee of the firm, Jim Labadini, and became a logo recognisable amongst all American households in the 1980s as rubber-soled shoes came into fashion.
Converse’s most popular product is the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoe, a canvas hi-top trainer with white rubber soles and white laces, with a star and chevron logo on the side (sometimes known as Converse white leather). Other collections include a lo-top version of the classic Chuck Taylor All-Stars, the chunkier Jack Purcell lo-tops, Heritage Chuck designs, platform trainers and a range of specialist skateboarding shoes. Most purchases remain the classic hi-tops and lo-tops, but designs are now available not just in a range of colours and designs, but also limited-edition collections linked in with current affairs, pop culture and the media.
Converse trainers are available to buy directly from the brand themselves online but are also stocked in a range of high-street footwear stores including Foot Locker, Schuh, JD Converse, House of Fraser Converse and Office.
When looking to save money on your Converse purchase, Student Discount Squirrel would always recommend shopping around both online and off across retailers to take advantage of any snap sales or promotional offers they may have available. You can remain assured of the quality Converse supplies but may be able to save yourself a wad of cash by being a smart shopper.
Most of us have a pair of black or white Converse canvas trainers in our shoe rack or even those new High Tops, but with so many designs now available (including High Top), it’s worth diversifying if you find them comfy! The perfect informal shoe, they’ll see you through season after season and are a comfortable, wearable trainer that goes with pretty much any day-to-day outfit.
HISTORY OF THE COMPANY
Back in 1908, Marquis Mills Converse, a manager at another footwear manufacturing business, opened the Converse Rubber Shoe Company in Massachusetts, USA. The company manufactured rubber shoes and winterised rubber-soled footwear for men, women and children.
By 1910, shoes were being produced daily, but it wasn’t until seven years later that they made the move into athletic shoes.
The All-Star basketball shoe was introduced in 1917 but gained real popularity in 1923 when the basketball player Chuck Taylor walked into the business moaning about his sore feet.
Marquis gave him a job as a salesman and ambassador, and he went on to promote the shoes across the US. By 1932, Taylor’s signature was added to the logo patch on the trainers; and he continued to work for the firm until his death in 1969.
The company went on to customise shoes the first all-African American professional basketball team, the New York Renaissance and for Wilt Chamberlain, who scored over 100 points in an NBA game in 1962.
When the US entered World War II in 1941, Converse switched production from consumer athletic footwear to military footwear and rubberised protective clothing. It wasn’t until after the war that they switched back to consumer apparel. By the 70s, the company was struggling and with very little variety past the All Star one star classics, began to flounder. Filing for bankruptcy in 2001, it looked as though Converse was to be ended; but Nike stepped in and purchased the company in 2003. Now, it continues to move from strength to strength as a Nike subsidiary and has regained its position as a leading footwear manufacturer.SHOP SALE >
