It’s the phenomenon that’s taken over the world, and become what some would call a cult following.
Designed to provide comfort and support for human feet, shoes have been around for centuries. Initially made from rubber, called “plimsolls,” sneakers have been around since the 18th century. They were specifically designed for athletes as a way for their feet to have some sort traction and avoid slipping as they competed.
The first official pair of sneakers were designed by Marquis Converse, respectfully called “Converse All-Stars,” for basketball players. These sneakers were an instant hit. The company is still going strong as they are one of the most-recognized and visible sneaker brands today.
