While browsing through EBay today I came across one of my”favorite products of all-time: a pair of Sprewell Spinners from Dada. This led to a discussion of the oddest and ugliest sneakers since the 80s and the thought that if these shoes were given the green light then surely we can come up with something that could too.
So first, here’s a few of the “ugliest” shoes that popped up in the conversation that actually had commercials for them.
ADIDAS KOBE 2 (Great commercial)
CONS BY CONVERSE
LA GEAR CATAPULT
DADA C4 (WEBBER)
MASTER P JUMP OFFS
Nautica Glen Rice
Some of these commercials weren’t that bad. Actually some were pretty awesome and the last one by Li-Ning won an Addy Award. As for the shoes, if you think you can come up with something better than those Shaq or Wade kicks then here’s your shot. Li-Ning is hosting a design contest and the winner gets to party with Wade at an event for the winning custom sneaker design. Good luck!
