The History of Red Sneakers

15 Mar

Red sneakers have a long and fulfilling history going back to the turn of the twentieth century. Wait? Turn of the twentieth century?

Yes, in fact the humble sneaker has a history as long as your car and longer than many of your most treasured items in your family’s household.

Many believe the earliest sneaker, including the red sneaker, go back as far as 1917 to the basketball player, Chuck Taylor’s famous design. However, this is incorrect, the red sneaker goes back even further to as early as 1907, to the invention of vulcanized rubber by Charles Goodyear, almost immediately afterwards companies began producing athletics shoes of various designs and varieties.

However, Chuck Taylor can in fact trace red canvas sneakers back to the famous design in 1917, who suggested the canvas sneaks design when he was playing basketball professionally. In 1916, a company called Keds began producing sneakers, one of which was Red Keds. Red Keds in fact were the first to use the term “sneakers” in reference to their shoes’ rubber soles ability to “sneak” around corners.

Since then sneakers, including the various red sneakers design have been a staple of teenage fashion. Whether it is for their athletic uses or through the use of various subcultures among teenage fashion populaces, sneakers have become a commonplace sight on many school campuses. Since the 1980s and 1990s teenagers among the “punk” and “Goth” subcultures of teenage students have been wearing sneakers such as Red Keds due to both their simplicity and variety of design.

Many famous wearers of red canvas sneakers include Led Zeppelin, Woody Allen, Dustin Hoffman, and more. These have increased the exposure of the sneaker design among the teenage and other populaces in the fashion industry. Leading to their use in the casual shoe industry among followers of fashion trends. Today many teenagers wear them as a symbol of pride and solidarity among their peers.

However, red sneakers are still popular in their intended use in the field of athletics. Their rubber soles allow for continuous use on surfaces such as basketball courts and their canvas lining provides an aerated atmosphere for one’s feet to feel comfortable in playing. Ever since that first endorsement sneakers of all kinds have been a staple of basketball and basketball culture among the teenage fashion trends. Red sneakers in particular are a particularly fashionable version of the classic red canvas sneaks design. Sports endorsers are bigger and better, increasing the marketing and exposure of these shoes among the athletics fashion populaces.

Therefore, whether one wears them for fashion or for practicality a pair of red keds or red canvas sneaks is the way to go for comfort and practicality. Use in both athletics and fashion keeps the sneaker at the forefront of clothing and fashion design and trending. The sneaker has come a long way in our time, and shows every sign of continuing on as strong as ever, and those original designs are still with us to this day.
