Check out more on How Converse All Stars Are Made In the Free Resources Blog:
In the Converse vulcanized shoemaking process, the soft white rubber shoe outsole parts are attached to the shoe upper before the rubber is heat cured. With the sole parts attached, the entire shoe must be heated in a vulcanizing oven. The shoe is heated to around 170˚C  – that is over 300˚F! The heat required to vulcanize the rubber sole can melt nylon and polyester fabrics.
