Hear ye, hear ye! It has been settled by webmasterial decree that all forms of athletic footwear mentioned on the Charley Project, which are often referred to in terms such as “athletic shoes” or “tennis shoes” or “running shoes” or suchlike will henceforth be dubbed “sneakers.” This is because, in the webmaster’s opinion, tennis shoes look like this and athletic/running shoes can mean a lot of things, but sneakers is a convenient catchall term. In the near future the webmaster shall go through the site and locate all alternative terms and change them to “sneakers.”

The humorist writer Patrick McManus said when he was a kid they were called “tenner shoes.”
