As you can see from the above images sportswear has changed through the times, this is mainly shown If you look at SH9 where the lady wears a long dress to play what looks like tennis to SH5 and SH12. Image SH12 shows how today you usually see women dressed when they go to the gym or go running out and about, this has drastically changed from when sportswear was first made to enable a women to not tear her outfit when taking her swing at golf. Technological advancements in sportswear are shown in SH13 and SH14 in the way of protective gear. The images above show a clear change in sportswear for both men and women and how it is not just about making clothes for sport, Image SH11 shows that trainer shoes are made for fashion also.
