What are trainers ?

trainers are shoes that can be both high and low. Most of them feature a canvas upper or a leather base , all resting on a rubber sole. Highly appreciated for their style and comfort, trainers are in fact a derivative of traditional sports shoes , in that they are intended more for everyday use than for sports. And if this type of sneaker initially caused a sensation among young people, the generations that precede them are now showing themselves to be more and more sensitive to the charm of the trainer . Many brands have contributed to this craze, notably the Nike brand as well as the New Balance brand, born in the United States, in Boston.

Why do we say trainers ?

Unlike the French, the Anglo-Saxons clearly distinguish between classic sports shoes and those intended for urban use. Thus, the English and Americans speak of “sport shoes” for shoes dedicated to sporting activity, and of “ trainers ” for a pair used for everyday use. But perhaps you are asking yourself the following question: why the word “ trainers ”? In reality, this Anglicism finds its origin in the verb “to sneak”, or “to move furtively” in French. We owe this little word known to all to the American Henry Nelson McKinney, an advertising agent in Philadelphia. Indeed, in 1917, the latter allegedly claimed that its rubber sole made it particularly stealthy. Jordan trainers participated in the craze surrounding the trainers phenomenon starting in 1985.

What is the difference between sneakers and trainers ?

If, from an aesthetic point of view, classic sneakers and a pair of trainers may look similar, it is in their use that they differ. Indeed, traditional sports shoes, called "sneakers", are primarily intended for the practice of a sporting activity. trainers , for their part, are sports shoes whose use has been diverted to give rise to daily use. A pair of trainers is actually based more on the style than on the sporty characteristic that a classic sneaker contains. We can make the comparison with the Air Jordan 1 which are more qualified as trainers , while the Nike Dunk are more perceived as sneakers for the city.

The trainer : an emblem of popular culture, a revolution in the world of fashion and streetwear

From the 70s, trainers became popular at lightning speed. Young Americans from urban environments play a major role in the spread of the snkrs phenomenon: they are in fact the first to wear trainers almost systematically. Since the 90s, the world of hip-hop has also greatly participated in the popularization of shoes: great artists such as Tupac , Nelly and Kanye West, willingly display their love for trainers , thus inviting people around the world to share their taste for these new kinds of shoes . Over time, the trainer phenomenon has even managed to be the subject of exhibitions and artistic subjects. In short, more than just a sneaker , the streetwear shoe has become the emblem of a popular culture , today appreciated by all.

Furthermore, the big brands having taken note of the craze that was being created around the trainer , saw in this a commercial opportunity that they could not let pass: thus, the giants of the market such as Adidas and Nike took advantage of it to develop their first trainers , sometimes alongside renowned artists. Moreover, these first successful associations gave trainers a certain “credibility”, particularly among major fashion players, and even high fashion figures. Thus a small revolution takes place: the sports shoe can be a luxury product as well as a trendy shoe accessible to all. And right now, it seems that the trainer phenomenon is definitely at the peak of its glory.

trainers releases, successful collaborations: creators and stars from around the world are taking part in the trainer shoe game

In terms of successful collaboration, we will of course cite the one that brought together Michael Jordan and Nike for several years in the last century. However, it was not a win for the Swoosh brand, which at the time was dealing with a Michael Jordan fan of Converse . However, the offer proposed by the firm to the basketball player still took precedence. This is how in 1984, the famous NBA player agreed to collaborate with Nike , to give birth a short time later to a pair of sneakers that need no introduction: the Air Jordan .

And how can we talk about revolutionary collabs without mentioning that of Adidas and Kanye West ? For nearly 13 years, the two fashion icons worked and climbed the ranks together. But it was precisely in 2009 that it all began: the Yeezy , the duo's first creation, appeared on the fashion scene. The latter also launched the kick-off: after the successful West/ Adidas association, other brands willingly followed the movement by joining forces in turn with renowned artists. It Air Force in this context that new Nike are gradually flourishing: among Jordan , Nike birth of the collaboration between Drake and Nike , who propose to reinvent the Air Terra Humara from 1999, or that of Jaden Smith and New Balance .

Finally, luxury houses also wanted to carve out a place for themselves in the world of trainers : some of them have therefore decided to re-appropriate the concept of streetwear shoes , and they are doing it very well. Thus, in previous years, we have been able to witness the alliance of Converse and Dior, of Jacquemus and Nike with the new Humara, of Off-White and Nike , or even that of New Balance and Aimé Leon Dore with , among others, the famous revisit of the New Balance 550 .

Nike , New Balance , Jordan Trainers : what are the best trainers of the moment?

If there are no best trainers strictly speaking, some of them have still enjoyed particular success. Their names are also worth remembering, and that is why we are preparing to take a quick overview of the most popular trainers of the beginning of the century.

At Nike , Bruce Kilgore ensured, in 1982, a bright future for the brand: in fact, at that time, the Air Force One appeared and until then had established itself as a must-have in everyone's eyes. And if the success of the sneaker lay above all in its simplicity, the Oregon brand has, over the years, offered several revisits of its traditional Air Force , notably with the Shadow and '07 editions. In 1984, the release of the Jordan supported the already dazzling success of the swoosh brand. And since then, many Air Jordan silhouettes have emerged: among the most popular at the moment, we particularly find the Jordan 4 Military Black and the Air Jordan 1 Mid Metallic Gold.

Of course, it wouldn't be appropriate to talk about Nike 's bestsellers without mentioning the famous Dunk . However, little appreciated at the beginning, Dunk trainers experienced a comeback which would later earn them international fame. The most famous Nike Dunk are undoubtedly the Dunk Low . Moreover, the most popular at the moment are the Dunk Low Medium Olive and the Dunk Low World Champ, which both have a classic aesthetic, but which works every time.

Finally, it should be remembered that the majority of Nike trainers are literally unanimous on an international scale. Proof of this is that the Oregon firm still holds the main shares of the trainer market. The brand initially designed mainly men's trainers before realizing that there was very high demand for women's trainers .

On the Adidas side, we notice that a real growth of the brand has taken place since the creation of the Yeezy Label with Kanye West. And although the story between the rapper and the brand with the three stripes is now over, Yeezy still seems to still have its effect: the daring aesthetic of the sneaker proposed by the duo has been all the rage in recent years, and that does not t's not about to stop, especially since we risk seeing a scarcity of the Yeezy trainer . Among the big favorites are the very classic Yeezy 350 V2 , as well as the Yeezy 700 , which are a little more sophisticated.

Finally, if initially, the creator of New Balance sought to improve the purely technical aspect of his sneakers, they will very quickly take another turn. Indeed, while the first New Balance trainers mainly offered a sole allowing perfect balance, the models released in recent years present an increasingly sophisticated aesthetic. Certain silhouettes have particularly caused a sensation, and the New Balances 550 are one of them. More precisely, in recent times, the brand's flagship models are the New Balance 9060 Natural Indigo and the New Balance 9060 Rain Cloud. The New Balance 2002R trainers are also one of the most worn pairs of sneakers at the moment.
