...Apparently they DO wear sneakers.
This was confirmed recently when a 1500-year-old mummy was found in Mongolia wearing what looked like -- drumroll, please -- sneakers. Yikes! Guess you're never too old to wear sneakers!
The find was a boon to sneaker manufacturers who seized upon the advertising possibilities.
They immediately went to work on spirited slogans, such as:
-- Treats for your feet that even death can't defeat.
-- Our sneakers last a lifetime and beyond.
-- Like the Eveready Bunny, our sneakers never give up.
-- Always be prepared for a run...in this life AND in the next.
Then there are the wise words of author Martina Boone: "It doesn't matter how great your shoes are if you don't accomplish anything in them."
