Originally, they were American two-tone college shoes, made of linen and plastic. Today sneakers, which were formerly gymnastics shoes, have changed their look and are worn by everyone given their undisputed comfortableness. Some styles are more popular with the young, while others are more elegant and better reflect one’s own personal style. Classic, neutral and with branding that is not too obvious, Tod’s and Hogans always win first place. The most “in” however are Adidas by Yamamoto, Converse All Stars and Nike PanAm Moores. Neil Barrett has designed a new sneaker for Puma. Completely black, Sergio Rossi sneakers are ultra sophisticated whereas Chanel’s are more fun and trendy.
