In 1970 there were only 5 models, by 1998 they had 285 models and by 2012 there were 3,371 different models.
The term “Athletic Sneakers” are usually used for running in marathons, 1/2 marathon’s, basketball or tennis (just to mention some) but does not use this term for sports that are played on grass as Association Football and Rugby Football. These shoes are generally known as “cleats”.
Athletic Sneakers have a flexible sole and appropriate tread for each different function and are able to absorb the impact with the ground that’s being played on. Since the expansion of industry, this term “Athletic Sneaker” is based more on the design of the bottom of the shoe then the top.
The designs of today include sandals, Mary Janes and styles which can be used for running, dancing and jumping. The shoes themselves are made of flexible rubber for the soles. The original manufacturing of the shoe was designed for a basic look. But over time they now manufacture and design for specific purposes. The spiked shoe for running is a prime example.
