  1. So the thing that would have made this more official.. Is to start off explaining who developed the first shoe with a sole, that became your so called tennis shoe. Which was the Olmecian. The Brown tone rubber people.. The inventers of the shoe with a bottom…why isn't this mention if you wanna be praised so much. I forgot.. Just like Ford.. They only mass produced the car.. But that invention also belongs to the Brown people.. How about those facts..
