Why do we call them sneakers

Trainers, running shoes, kicks, and tennis shoes … in this area … they’re simply sneakers. An amusing piece about where the name came from

Although known by other names like trainers, running shoes, and tennis shoes … in this area … they’re simply sneakers. And why do you think they’re called sneakers? “I have no idea. Kinda quiet when you walk in them. No.” Well, yes … It seems an advertising agent in the early 1900’s had a sneaking suspicion and gave rubber soled shoes the name sneakers because the shoes were noiseless. “They’re so comfortable. And they go with everything.”Which is why most of us have taken a step in that direction with sneakers filling our closets and our hearts.
