I don't know -.- adidas or nike?
Please, someone answers the question it's too much important
I would like to know who invented the first pair of trainers,
Until the late 1800s most shoes weren't even made to distinguish between left and right feet. Plimsolls with rubber soles for athletic activity were sold, but these were heavy, all leather and durable rather than comfortable casual light-weight shoes. In 1892 the Americans came up with canvas-top plimsoles: Dubbed sneakers because they were so quiet. The first specialised sport shoes were made for basketball in 1917. Adidas deserves as much credit as anybody, the company started producing specialist athletic shoes in the 1920s. Sneakers were still just sporting footwear, until they became a fashion statement among teens in 1950s America. The shoes were often called 'tennis shoes', and were light, not durable, more canvas than leather. Well-made athletic shoes mostly made of leather and at reasonable prices for the mass market did not really appear, even in the United States, until the late 1970s. In the UK such shoes were marketed heavily on an image of athleticism, especially running, and their utility in general sport, such as for training sessions, i.e. "trainers". Today sales of trainers comprise 20% of the UK shoe market (by volume).
