The popularity of sneakers does not show any signs of abating. Worn by all genders, most especially men, regardless of age, it has left its imprint on a variety of cultures. Its iconic status has even led it to establish its own subculture. Identified as a fashion item, a status symbol and a socio-cultural object, the sneaker’s history dates back to the 18th century.
A sneaker’s design is remarkably altered with a simple change of its cut or top. Consumers’ varying taste in style has resulted in brands revising a shoe’s profile in usually three different ways, namely: Low-top, High-top, Mid-top.
