Bad News: Nique’s Got New Shoes

Former SLAM magazine head honcho Russ Bengtson wrote a list of “The Top 25 Sneakers That Should Be Retroed Right Now.” That’s all well and good — and his top choice is the close-to-my-heart, florescent Nike pumps worn by Sir Billy Ho in White Men Can’t Jump. But the real gold is the two 80s commercials he dug up.

I had forgotten about this wonderful ‘Nique “Reebok Double Pump” spot and never seen the even better (for comedic reasons) Hakeem ad for some store that sold his Etonics signature shoe.
