As long as the shoes aren't made of pork, it's all good.
The first shoes made of rubber and canvas were tennis shoes. They were white, low-top shoes made in the same style as regular men's shoes were and, at first, were worn only to play tennis. Later, rubber and canvas shoes were made with black canvas and higher ankles, and were called sneakers. Sneakers were worn to play basketball and replaced leather shoes worn by many boys during and after the depression.
