Sneakers what they are
Sneakers, originally intended as youth sports shoes, have slowly conquered an increasingly large slice of the public, even the more aged one, because they are comfortable, versatile and never dull. How did they started?
We have to go back to the athletes of the ancient Greece who wore special footwear for the Olympics to easily juggle among various competitions. Then the American Indians smeared their feet with a latex paste made from rubber to protect them from the impact with the ground. But it was only in the eighteenth century that the first shoes appeared in England, though with a leather sole: flexible, but not waterproof. In 1832 in America Wait Webster lightened the rubber-sole footwear. Then came out the cricket shoes and plimsolls, canvas shoes with a rubber strip on the sides that resembled the waterline of ships. Subsequently they took the name of sneakers - from the verb “to sneak”- because with their soft and elastic sole they allowed silent and stealthy movements... like the thieves’ ones.
