How did teenagers start wearing sneakers as a part of fashion?

16 Feb

Sneakers have been around a very long time. They started manufacturing sneakers in the late 18th century, but they did not coin the name “sneakers” until the year 1892. This is when the US Rubber company came out with Keds brand sneakers, made of canvas tops and rubber. Keds brand sneakers are still around today and if you have a pair, you can feel confident you are wearing the most historical sneaker ever created. The moniker sneakers came about because, when someone wore this type of shoe, they could sneak around without anyone hearing them walk; because of the rubber sole and canvas. People started calling the shoes, sneakers.

Sneakers started gaining momentum as with all types of athletes all over the world. In the year, 1917, Marquis Converse created a basketball sneaker, commonly called Converse All-Stars. Following Marquis’ creation, a basketball player by the name of Chuck Taylor endorsed Converse All-Stars, converting the name to Chuck Taylor’s. In 1924, Adi Dassler created a sneaker with the name, Adidas. Adi’s brother then created another sneaker, the puma. Sneakers are worn by the top players in sports, including being worn in the Olympics.

Sneakers being worn by the public started during the 50’s. This is when kids started wearing them as fashion statements, instead of to play a sport. In 1984, the sneakers trend hit an all time high with Michael Jordan wearing the Air Jordan’s. Nike and Reebok competed on the sneaker scene along with Adidas. Up sprung sneakers for every sport imaginable, including skateboarding, running and cross training. Sneaker companies started putting bright colors and unique designs on their sneakers to add to the competition.

Today, more and more sneaker manufacturers are making sneakers with amazing designs and even better features. There has been the Nike Air Force, using gas as a cushion to make the person wearing the sneaker jump and run faster, creating a type of bounce effect. Reebok came out with The Pump sneaker, in which you could pump air right into your sneaker, ensuring for a perfect fit every time.

Sneakers are a staple and I don’t know anybody who doesn’t have at least one pair of sneakers. Women, men, children and even babies wear sneakers. Sneakers come in all colors of the rainbow, from, pink to black, patterned and green, red and rainbow and everything in between. The features that come with sneakers nowadays are endless, some types of sneakers are great for runners, others are great for hikers; some are perfect for basketball players. The list could go on and on with how many different types of sneakers are in the market today.

The important thing is to remember how sneakers started, with a little known rubber and canvas shoe, the Keds sneaker. They are the shoe that started it all and they have lasted until the present day.
