Sneakers go back a long way. In the late 18th century, people wore rubber soled shoes called plimsolls, but they were pretty crude—for one thing, there was no right foot or left foot. Around 1892, the U.S. Rubber Company came up with more comfortable rubber sneakers with canvas tops, called Keds. By 1917, these sneakers began to be mass produced. (They got the nickname sneakers because they were so quiet, a person wearing them could sneak up on someone.)* Wikipedia
Today we wear sneakers everywhere—to work, to dinner, to weddings—and spend as much on them as we do on dress shoes.
I am a pretty big fan of Sneakers Lately, every pair of shoes I have bought have been Superga; comfortable stylish shoes that can be rocked anywhere. High-End brands are now making High-End sneakers, and I would love to own some! Here are my favorites for this season.
