Top 5 shoe-based stickers from the 1980s
Before there was internet banners, businesses would often advertise through the medium of the sticker. Here are five of the best shoe-based ones from the 1980s.
Yes, very clever, we see what you did there: you advertise with a centipede because it will need of a lot of shoes. It’s a shame your illustrator only managed to draw four though.
You know what this typeface reminds us of? Sausages! This is basically a silhuette of a very hungry man running after sausages. Makes sense.
It’s worth pointing out here that ”KKK” does not stand for the Ku Klax Klan, and as far as we know the Menokkaat line of shoes also did not include rollerskates with tiny men in them. Illustrations can really mess things up at times.
Three interesting facts about Velcro:
a) a Velcro patch is used inside astronauts’ helmets where it serves as a nose scratcher
b) the US army has developed a 95% more silent version of Velcro since the ripping sound could betray a soldier’s position
c) Because Vaparit shoes used Velcro fastening they would just float around aimlessly in the sky.
Whoaa, easy on the full frontal baby nudity there, Pena. You know what this store could also be called? “Kenkä-Penis”. But come think of it, babies are known to need new shoes.
Thanks to Jussi Karjalainen for letting us here at the Kasper Stromman Design Blog dive into his sticker vault.
