It’s not a shocking hypothetical to think some of our favorite childhood cartoon characters were into the coolest kicks. So, let’s explore that overlooked piece of information.
My love for tennis shoes started at a young age. In fact, the journey began around the time when cartoons were my #1 choice for television programming. As a kid, I was instantly attracted to the characters that were cool and dressed even cooler. I went deep into my memory bank to list my top 3 cartoon characters who wore cool kicks.
Jerald (Hey Arnold)
This smooth operator has an amount of poise that is not taught, but birthed. Whether it is him telling an urban legend story or rules to a street game, Jerald is the man with the plan. Laced with a 33 football jersey and a pair of red kicks, he is truly a memorable character.
Optimistic in every situation, Skeeter manages to find the bright side. Never tripping off of school girls, he focused on tapping into his unpredictable personality for needed comic relief. With a citrus blend of orange and yellow gym suit, Skeeter continues to captivate television screens.
Sandy Cheeks (Sponge Bob Square Pants)
Blessed with extraordinary logic, Sandy is the sense of reason on the show. Charismatic in every scene, Sandy will surely be a notable cartoon character. Oh, and did I mention what how cool her metallic kicks look with the futuristic space suit?
