I know Wikipedia includes sneakers as the US term, but they don’t seem like what I’d guess most people in the US would call sneakers. They’re far too flimsy and have very little support, and while they very occasionally have velcro closings, they never have laces. And Chucks, Keds, etc, are brand names for shoes that are also really quite different to plimsolls. Sneakers is probably the closest word there is because perhaps they just aren’t common enough in the US to have their own name.
I think you’d probably have to see a pair in real life to appreciate how different they are from sneakers and Chucks.
