8 Classic Shoes To Hop On On One Foot

    1. Clogs
      Clogs are not for the faint of heart. As much as they are fun to look at, we don’t recommend you try wearing them for a full day. Your feet will not be grateful. (See #8 for a more comfy version of Clogs.)

    2. Air Jordans
      He may not be standing on any feet in the trademark “jumpman” logo, but his epic jump, just like the shoes, become an instant classic. The first pair of Air Jordans were produced exclusively for Michael Jordan in 1984. A few months later they were introduced to the public market. Since then, the brand became a basketball staple with more than 30 different models. Today, the shoe is not only considered a basketball shoe, but it’s also a popular footwear option for daily use.

    3. Heeleys
      Do Heeleys remind you of your childhood? They probably do. Every kid wanted a pair, despite them being banned in schools, malls and arenas. If your parents ignored all the warnings about them and still bought you a pair, I hope your wristbones and tailbone are intact.

    4. Converse All Stars
      This one is an all time hit! If you don’t currently own a pair, you probably did at one time (they even make baby converse!). It’s hard to believe that this basic sneaker started it’s big career as a basketball shoe in 1917 – introducing rubber-soles to courts across the United States. Today they sell ~ 270,000 pairs every day!

    5. Uggs
      Love’em or hate’em, they have proved they are here to stay. UGG, an Australian company managed to create a warm, chunky boot made of sheepskin that won’t only keep your feet nice and cozy throughout the Canadian winter, but will help you make a fashion statement. In 2000, Oprah declared them her favourite things and they exploded in popularity, and 18 years later they continue to top the winter footwear charts.

    6. Crocs
      Crocs, the comfortable (ugly) version of Clogs, released their first foamy model of their clogs in 2002. Since then, the company, which uses a cute crocodile as their mascot, has sold over 300 million pairs of clogs, sandals, heels, sneakers and a variety of other different styles. Fun fact: Crocs are a favorite shoe choice amongst doctors and chefs. They even created a special design for nurses.

    8. Birkenstocks
      The true American Dream of shoes! Originally produced in Germany as an orthopedic shoe, it experienced an awakening during the 60s and quickly became popular with “hippies” on the West Coast. Since then, Birkenstocks have worked their way into the mainstream, and are favoured by those who value comfortable footwear – even Heidi Klum wears them! Thank you Germany!
