Sunday morning’s were once reserved for newspaper reading over a cup of coffee. Now, the ritual’s changed into sorting through Flipboard pages on our iPads and phones. All while things change, these vintage Nike print ads still remain and tell the story of long forgotten but still memorable sneakers, the endorsing athletes behind them and the company who gave both to us in unique ways that were as much visual experiences as they were advertisements.
Again, no credit taken here; that goes to the likes of Kicks On Cards, Flight Time and Gwarizm, since all three do an excellent job retelling the history behind each ad. Me? I just right-click, save-as then put them here for entertainment purposes and hope to do a small part to carry on tradition.
