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.

She is 15 so she is older than me and thinks she is the boss of me and sometimes she pulls my hair or hits me. Does anyone else have annoying siblings? Well I am the same as well. Just ingore her and when she is mean to you don't fight back go tell your mum or dad.

You never really know how they feel or why they act the way they do. I am totally with Kirsten and just like her there is no one that I particularly hate or anything and f they do something that you hate there may be a reason behind it and we can't judge them on that :3
