The sneakers have a history and it is longer than one would think.
Rubber soles or the essence of sneakers were patented in 1832 by Waita Webster, however, their production began in 1980 in Great Britain. However, the first sneakers were made in 1908 in the USA in the company Marquisa M. Converse. They were called All Star and the product was intended for basketball players. The shoes consisted of an immortal rubber sole and a top of black canvas. Sneakers are popular in the early 20's of the XX century, when the brand ambassador became Charles "Chuck" Taylor-basketball star and the godfather of the next iconic model of sneakers. In the '40s, the American army ordered sneakers and made them with training shoes. The soldiers appreciated comfort and after the service in the army bought sneakers and wore them in their free time. In the next decade, avalanche sneakers gained popularity. They were worn by all representatives of alternative views, musicians and athletes. Wearing sneakers has become an expression of freedom, opposition and revolutionary thought. For years, 70 'sneakers have lost their importance as sports shoes, but they still gain strength as a synonym of rebellion but also of convenience. And then, on April 5, 1994, in sneakers on his feet, Kurt Cobain died, and the role of sneakers as an expression of alternative thought, strengthened and took root.
And now it's time for a Polish accent! Do you know that in the 1930s, sneakers were also produced in Poland? Yes! In Grudziądz in the company "PePeGe", where the name of the sneakers - pepegi, popular in Poland, came from.
