Canvas Sneakers

When you’re looking for a pair of shoes that are light, comfortable, and durable and most of all cheap, canvas sneakers are probably your best choice. They are perfect for your everyday activities, especially if you need to move a lot. There’s nothing more exhausting having to wear some heave uncomfortable shoes the whole day.

Canvas is a beauty of a material because it is very resistant, yet very light and maneuverable. Basically, the shoes feel like a sock. It’s downside is that they get dirty pretty easily, but then again, throwing them in the washing machine is not that hard.

Popular canvas shoes

Canvas sneakers typically come in black or white, without any flashy stuff you don’t even care about when doing various chores. But there are also plenty of colorful alternatives, like those proposed by Converse and Keds.

Converse has managed to turn their classic canvas Chuck Taylor model into a cult object, with people of all ages wearing everywhere. Well, except fancy parties. Actually, I was recently at a wedding, and the bride was wearing a really cool pair of trainers… don’t know the model though 😀

As I was saying, Converse achieved that success because it gave its users the freedom to design their own models, with custom sketches or designs. Vans did the same stuff and it also worked for them, although at a much smaller scale.

Cleaning canvas sneakers

To clean your sneakers, I would usually suggest to just throw them in the machine, but some manufacturers don’t recommend that because the adhesives might break down. I certainly never had any problem with that, so, it’s your call.

So, to conclude, canvas is a fantastic choice of fabric for shoes because it is simple, cheap and requires very little maintenance.
