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.

Have your say...

Dear dish it, my friend first met eachother on the first day of kindergarten we sat next to one another and we became close. we were BFF's throughout 1st to 2nd grades. then, the second grade teacher realized there were alot of kids in the class. and same w the 3rd grade teacher. so, we had to have a split class. my friend was in the split. I was not. It all seemed like the teachers were doing somthing... weired. all the girls (well, almost there were only 6 girls on one half) were in the split. and all the boys were in regular . AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE WAS WEIRED! :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( all the boy BFF's and the girl BFF's were SPLIT. me and my friend,kids named Nia & Georgia, Isaac& Ethan, and more. it was so sad for all of us.2 months later, I got homschooled. 2 years later im back in public with my 4th grade self. everything had changed. a bunch of people were obsessed w\ a girl my age named kassidy. im neighbors w\ kassidy and she is REALLY cool and nice. but the whole I  [s:sm3/1jw1] kassidy crew got mean. if I asked them to play they would say. "If Kassidy is playing I will" or I would want to be parteners with kassidy on something and they would freak out. anyway jasmine NEVER invited my to anything, and I am trying to be nice to her ( ice cream money, homework help, comfort when sad, ect.) And not to mention I invited her to 3 things!!! on the bright side she came to 2 :thumbsup :thumbsup she also embarassed me by saying that she was moving I freaked out  because I cared about her and I would cry all the time. I even held onto her and said sadly, "PLEASE DON'T GO!!  :sad :sad . later i found out that she was not moving, she was going to CA for a vacation. even the teacher was in on it!! :mad :mad anyways, my parents told me that i should just let go of her. But i am not ready. HELP??? :e :e :e :e :e

When I was a child I wanted glasses SOO bad, cuz I wanted to copy my mom and sister. And also, I thought they looked cool. I wear glasses now. I have had them for 2 years and honestly I don't mind them. Although, this year I am gonna pry get contacts for swimming better and stuff like that. But if you don't need glasses I wouldn't recommend wearing them. They're not bad, but trust me after a while you will pry not like them as much. But hey, that's my opinion. If you want to do it I'm not gonna stop you. Do what makes you happy in the long run. And tell your friends that they are non prescription if you don't need them, but still get some.

I agree I was afraid of that first too. Eventually I just began inviting my friends over and they don't use it/practically obsess over it like I do but they understood why I use kidzworld and not many other forms of social media.

They would put me in trouble for falling in love. They believe I can't date until age 20. Aw, well, my advice for you would be to talk to your parents about it. There's no point trying to sneak around like those films and it is better for your mind if you talk to them about it. It can be super difficult I know but if you and your parents get along really well then you guys can talk about it and make it work. On the other hand, if your parents ban you from falling in love as you put it, then I think it's better just to stay as friends with him.
