published 5 months ago

Australians call them "runners." The British know them as "trainers." Americans refer to them as "sneakers." Whatever you call them, these casual shoes are worn by billions of people around the world. Today, roughly 23 billion shoes are produced each year.

[Directed and animated by Ella Dobson, narrated by Addison Anderson, music by Stephen LaRosa].
