Summer Sneaker Collection (and the Whole Big Story Behind It)
Let’s admit it, sneakers today have become way more significant than just training shoes like they’re originally supposed to be. Millennials, Gen Z, and probably the never-ending younger generations all use these representative footwear to defy some parts of themselves. And as we expect, ”sneaker culture” comes along and marks an absolutely essential value in the expression movement of the youth.
Dating back to the late 18th century, the very first versions of sneakers were introduced commercially with a view to helping wearers play sports in comfort. At this point, you can refer to this type of shoes by many ways depending on where they’re made and even which decade they’re in. Trainers, joggers, running shoes, rubber shoes, etc. Basically any names that are associated with sports and exercise activities.
And then, a few Northern America slang terms kicked in, and that was the hook. That’s all it takes to trigger this footwear fashion movement. Of course, people don’t just name something for no reason. Interestingly enough, the term ”sneakers” originated from the fact that it’s much more pleasant and quieter when the sole touches the ground, in comparison with other types of shoes. In other words, it feels like you’re “sneaking” up when doing something with a great smoothness. In the shoe games, cozy and quiet feature is the winner here.
But why have they become such an iconic fashion item for any young urbanist out there? There’s this amazing idea from the boy Auggie – the main character in a movie called Wonder. He has a habit to have certain observations on people he met through their *shoes.* A good eye I must say, as almost all of his thoughts about one person are right on the spot. Well, we can agree that movies or any other kinds of arts, more or less, come from true life. From what we’re saying, sneakers play a magnificent part in helping wearers express themselves. They gradually evolve from protecting feet to protecting identity. You want to know what sneaker heads want to say? Look at their collection. The true player, the selective one, or the show-off type, they’re all there. Just like fingerprints, people don’t have exactly the same sneaker collection. After all, getting to know someone through their shoes might not be such a bad idea, right?
