Who Invented Sneakers and When Were They Invented?
The history of Sneakers is a long and interesting story. In the late 18th century poorer people wore rubber soled shoes, named plimsolls, which were made without a left or right foot (comfortable, right?). However, the U.S. Rubber Company produced a canvas topped shoe, called Keds, which are widely regarded as the first ever mass produced sneaker.
