Air Jordan shoes refer to the line of sneakers created for and endorsed by basketball superstar Michael Jordan. The line of shoes was first made available to the public in 1985 and new designs continue to be produced for sale today (as of 2009) despite Michael Jordan's retirement from the game of basketball in 2003.
The first pair of Chuck Taylor shoes was made in 1923, when Mr. Taylor's suggestions to improve the sporting shoe of Converse Shoes Chicago were adopted and his name was added to the product. Before Taylor got involved, the shoes were called "Converse All-Star" and dated back to the 1910s.
In all honesty I think its the brand of shoes. You can still buy a good cheap pair of running shoes and last you where some will not. I bought a pair at Wal-Mart for $20 and they lasted me a year or longer. Taking care of them or wearing them only when running is the only thing you can do to make them last longer. Other wise you will be gluing them back together.
Converse They are more than just shoes, nostalgia, or a fashion statement. The history of Converse shoes spans the history of 20th century America and the evolution of basketball. Converse shoes revolutionized the sport of basketball and witnessed the birth of rock and roll. Sixty percent of all American own or have owned at least one pair of Converse sneakers. In 1908, Marquis M. Converse, in his late 30's and previously a respected manager at a footwear manufacturing firm, opened the Converse Rubber Shoe Company for business in Malden, Massachusetts and begins providing winterized rubber soled footwear for men, women, and children. By 1910 Converse Rubber Company was producing 4,000 pairs of shoes daily, but it wasn't until 1915 that the company began manufacturing athletic shoes for tennis. Basketball, less than 25 years old, was revolutionized in 1917 when Converse designed and produced the world's first performance basketball shoes, the Converse All Star. In 1918, Charles H. "Chuck" Taylor, a basketball player for the Akron Firestones, acquires his first pair of All Star basketball shoes and backed by Converse, he introduces the game of basketball to Americans across the country; all while wearing his Converse All Stars. Chuck Taylor officially joined Converse in 1921 as America's first player endorser, and in 1923 after publishing a retrospective on the first 60 years of basketball and teaching his first basketball clinic at North Carolina State University, his signature was added to the All Star patch. This decision marks the defining moment in the history of Converse shoes and gives birth to an American icon. Chuck Taylor, known as the "Ambassador of Basketball", then launched into a 35 year "evangelist tour" to introduce and teach basketball to America. Converse also customizes shoes for the New York Renaissance (the "Rens"), basketball's first all African American pro basketball team. The "Rens" pioneered a whole new method of playing and won a remarkable 2,588 games with only 539 losses. Converse steamed ahead through the 1920's and 1930's as the nation's interest in basketball surges. Converse and basketball became synonymous as the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star became the standard issue basketball shoes for professional, college, and high school teams across the country.
A 12 year old should use a regulation basketball hoop. You do not want your 12 year old to get use to a shorter hoop. A standard hoop is 10 feet high.
Boy: Games, Nice clothes, Shoes, Football, Basketball Girl: Games Nice clothes, Shoes, Easy Bake Oven
the height of a hoop for a 11 year old should be near 7 ft.
Basketball players should be taller, so I would say about 63 inches.

Sales for converse shoes surged throughout the 1920's and 1930's. America was intrigued by the shoe and the sport of basketball.

look i had a pair of black proteges for a year or 2 in size 10.5 . right now in 2012 i like wearing a 11. so when i put the protege they feel like they can blow out jordans !! i have a pair of jordans to but i think the protege r more comforable. honestly jordans are almost the same as any bastetball shoes. but depending who u are either buy cheap and get something that is worth more than the price or get something with just cool colors for a hell of a lot more money. they feel almost the same.
If you must, but seventh year of ballet is better imo.
Definatly when you've got the bottom of your shoes smooth on the heel and toe areas. If you get holes in the sides where they hit your toes, instead of buying a whole new pair you can go to cvs and buy shoe goo. Put some of that on the holes and they'll be good as new. Shoe goo got my old lakai's to last almost a year.
Yes, they should. Basketball is the one sport that can last a long time, and because of this, winter is the perfect season. Fall is football season, and football and basketball are the two main sports that the students come to.
