All-Time Coolest Sneakers

Jul 25, 2013

It's easy to fall in love with a pair of sneakers. They're on your feet all day long, playing basketball, doing the moonwalk, and stepping into that huge mud puddle to splash your BFF. So which sneakers are the greatest? Kidzworld checks out which sneakers stand the test of time with a review of the all-time greatest sneakers...

Air Jordans

If you want to find the greatest sneakers, you might want to start with the greatest athlete of all-time; Michael Jordan and his famous Air Jordan brand from Nike. These sneakers are still evolving with high tech basketball technology to make you jump higher, but none will ever be as cool as the originals.

Chuck Taylors

Converse "Chucks" are obviously the most popular sneaker ever. They have become an icon in the fashion industry and are the highest selling shoe of all-time. These shoes have been around since 1923 and even though they change all different types of colors and fabrics, the originals still win most people's hearts. Everyone has probably owned a pair of Chuck Taylors once in their lives and if you haven't yet, give them a try and dare to tell us they're not your new best friends. Your mom will try throwing these sneakers out several times after overuse and rescue missions.

Stan Smiths

Stan Smiths put Adidas on the map in the 1960s. Most people don't know who Stan Smith is but he was a tennis player in the 1970s. The shoe was originally named after a French tennis player, but obviously his name was not as cool as Stan's.

Vans for the Victory

The checkered Vans win the greatest skateboard shoe of all-time, especially the ones that you don't have to lace up. Who doesn't love a pair of sneakers that you can toss on your feet in 2 seconds when you're trying to catch the school bus!

Puma Evospeed

We have to give credit where credit is due so Usain Bolt's sneakers have to make the list. If the fastest man in the World chooses to endorse Puma's Evospeeds, then they must be pretty good for running. These sneakers might not pass the test of time, but Usain's 100 meter world records just might.

Dear Dish-It I have a horse that I board at a local barn. I was really excited when I started going there because there are 3 other kids there my age: Riley, Lilly and Isaac,  who are all 14 (I'm 13). Isaac is the only boy, and lately some of my family have been thinking I have a crush on him. But I don't! I think crushes are weird and gross and honestly have never really had one. I consider him a friend, nothing more. But nobody believes me! Every time they see me texting someone they ask if it's Isaac. If I'm zoned out they ask if I'm thinking about him. But I never am! I know that I should just ignore them but its really difficult. I feel uncomfortable riding horses together or talking because I feel like it'll make people think I have a crush on him. I know my fam isn't trying to be mean but its really upsetting, and the more I get upset the more they tease me. I don't think they realize that I don't find the teasing nice or fun. And also im not usually a sensitive person so maybe this is a touchy subject for me? Thanks so much!  P.S. Riley and Lilly don't think I like him.

Well, I don't really know, but I am sort of insane too, but not in the same way. I have instead practiced my own opinion and been very philosophical since I bumped my head when I fell of my bike. So you're not alone, many people including mentally stable ones have imaginary friends. Even some shows are based on someone having imaginary friends. Like a show I used to watch when I was small, Alfons Åberg, yes, in later seasons he did get real friends but he was known for his imaginary friend. About that practicing magic thing, it seems a bit weird but then, there is not much difference from putting frogs, bug's blood and secret herbs into a cauldron from cooking French food. So I think you can discover your future from using cooking stuff to practice your 'magic'. "Insanity is not insanity if you would make a movie of it, and nothing exciting, adrenaline rushing or thrilling would happen in it"  -Me As you can see I have a very complicated opinion on it, maybe even the most. Oh, and you could be loosing your sanity or just having a time where this happens and everything is normal again. (And no, I haven't seen your previous discussions)
