History of sneakers
In the late 18th century poorer people wore rubber soled shoes, named plimsolls, which were made without a left or right foot. However, the U.S. Rubber Company produced a canvas topped shoe, called Keds, which are widely regarded as the first ever mass produced sneaker. Before shoes were made with rubber soles, they had solid bottoms so were quite loud when walking. Sneakers got their name because when the user walked, they wouldn’t make a sound, making it easy to sneak around. From the turn of the century sneakers started to make big developments and get sporty and trendy. Converse and New Balance are known to be one of the founders of the sneakers that we see nowadays. Those companies were the first ones who stared producing loads of sporty and trendy shoes, called sneakers.
in the 60’s, two of the worlds most iconic brands of today were born, Nike and Vans. Mass production of sneakers wasn’t nothing but normal. As we step into the 90s, we see the world’s first laceless shoes being created in the shape of Puma’s Disc. The 90s also saw the world being introduced to the Reebok Shaqnosis and Puma’s Mostros. Nowadays it’s getting harder and harder to keep up with all the dope sneakers. Extraordinary prizes for shoes like Yeezys or Supreme, or the regular Nike or Converse sneakers that go up to 75 euro, we’ve seen it all.

In the 1950s, when idol James Dean wore sneakers in the classic 'Rebel without a Cause', the sneaker started to become a real fashion item. Despite the popularity in the 60s and 70s, it took until the mid-80s before the sneakers could be seen on the street and at school. This was all due to Michael Jordan, who was contracted by Nike to wear his Air Jordans during competitions. After this, the sale of sneakers has increased enormously and new models, colors and techniques continue to emerge to this day. Welcome to the FRESHCOTTON sneaker webshop!
