Yes but we called then plimsoles.Please don't ask me why  wub
According to the dictionary they're called that because the coloured mudguard line round them (the bit where the sole joins the uppers) resembles the plimsole line on a ship.  Anyway I'm not surprised you didn't know what sannies meant because 'sannies' is a Glaswegian expression - not to be confused with 'sannie' = a sandwich. Rolling Eyes  As for myself, we always called them gym shoes.
