How to use "Sneaker" in context?

When you think of sneakers, images of runners and basketball players come to mind straight away. Those who are familiar with sneakers may also think of Air Jordans, the most iconic sneakers in the world. What many people don't know is that sneakers originally came from basketball. The first basketball sneakers were actually made of rubber and weighed almost nothing. But because they were so light, they would fly off of players' feet during play and had to be taped to their feet. Nike, the shoe manufacturer, created the first "cushioning" sneakers in order to eliminate this problem and make the game more comfortable for players.
