My trip down the rabbit hole

I have been obsessed with getting a dog over the last few months. I like photography, graffiti, cinematography, among plenty other interests. I started at one link and ended up somewhere I didn’t necessarily expect. I might not have done the assignment correctly, but if you check it out, let me know where I went left when I should’ve gone right, lol. Thanks

My Sneaker Trail

“You’d be surprised, how far sneakers can take you.”

MeeeI decided to start my trail through Wikipedia, and searching up sneakerssneakerbegLets start walking……

As you have viewed, you notice that the network in this was as follows:                                                                                              Search engine -> Shopping site -> Blog -> Social Media

This is how a brand becomes international.  This is how a fashion trends begin.  It starts with one thing, and builds to something even bigger.  I noticed that I did find myself back to the sneakers, but it just shows that even a sneaker can direct you to clothes for the office, or dresses for the summer.  We would associate sneakers with sports or something athletic, but it is more than that.
