But now, when I mean the all purpose, not for a specific function, canvas shoe thing, I say/think sneaker. And yes, I think it's because, running shoes are for running, aerobic shoes are for aerobics, and I can't afford them, but if I could, my tennis shoes would be for tennis. And I'd still need sneakers. Beth Simon
