What are court sneakers?

Court sneakers are a name given to shoes used in sports such as tennis, basketball, and badminton. Although tennis shoes have a strong image, in fact, sneakers for basketball use, such as Converse All Star, are also court sneakers. Most of them adopt a low-tech, simple design and are the opposite of the tech-oriented sneakers that have been trending for the past few years.
