Although Captain America was one of the leaders in the Marvel cinematic universe, there is still a lot of viewers who don’t know about him — like why he was wearing the Converse in the Avengers. Steve Rogers is on his 2011 MCU debut in Captain America: The First Avenger, and went on to appear in seven more films, including Spider-Man: Homecoming, where he seems in announcements played at the public service Peter’s School.
Captain America retired at the end of Avengers: Endgame when he went back in time to return to their times and places Infinite Stone and decided to live the life he always wanted next to Peggy Carter to live in the past. Back in the present, he passed on the legacy of Captain America to Sam Wilson, aka Falcon. Steve Rogers was one of the characters whose portrayal has changed based on the writers in charge, which has made way for many debates on what is right for him and if, in the end, he is suited to the character.
But for all this time in the MCU, all the covers of Captain America’s life and character were not enough, and there are still things a couple of viewers don’t know about him. Some of these are little details that may seem irrelevant, but they add the character as to why he is seen wearing the Converse in Avengers.
Why Captain America wears Converse in the Avengers
Some fans have reported that, in The Avengers, in the scene where Steve is training, and Nick Fury comes to talk to him about Tesseract, Steve is wearing a conversation. This is an extension that may not seem important, but as one Twitter user said (via Reddit), there is a connection between that specific brand and Steve Rogers. Users point out that conversations have been around since 1907, and by 190, they cost about $ 3. During World War II, Converse made shoes for soldiers, so the cap was definitely worn back in a pair or two. Given that he spent 40 years frozen underwater, once he joined the modern world, conversational shoes were one of the few things he could recognize from the old days.
Captain America, at least in the MCU, was shown to be a man of nostalgia who understood the time he spent “sleeping” and everything he remembered as a result. As such, it is not surprising that he would be chosen to wear any other (arguably more casual) type and brand of footwear only because it held a connection with his past. Whether intentional or not, other than the Converse is unknown, but it fits Steve Rogers’ character and is a subtle but impressive detail.
