I call them gym shoes. I'm from Chicago originally but I live in North Texas now. Everybody seems to call them tennis shoes or tennys here. I had never heard them called that before but I have heard sneakers occasionally. What do you call them and where are you from?

Tennis shoes, which gets merged to sound more like "tennie-shoes".  I'm in NC.

I'm from CA, living in WA.

Normal, Ked type ones - tennis shoes.  I have shoes specifically for running, and call them running shoes, lol.  I also have cross trainers.
