Movie Fans Will Love These Posters of Famous Hollywood Sneakers

Product placements and advertising in movies can be smooth, annoying, disturbing, and even ridiculous depending on how the filmmakers integrate well real life products into their work. Sometimes the result is a cheesy mess, but sometimes the product becomes as iconic as the movie.

I mean, maybe I’m just not enough of a “cinephile” but most of these seem kinda... pointless. Like, sure, Marty’s auto-lacing Nikes from BttF2 and Ripley’s Alien Stompers, sure, they were created for the movies themselves and exist specifically and iconically in the movies’ fiction. But most of these are just regular shoes that a character wore in regular shoe-wearing contexts.

Like Marty’s Converse All-Stars - sure, it’s an iconic shoe design that’s worked through the decades, but I had no clue he wore them in Back to the Future. Nothing on this poster indicates that. Same with Rick Deckard’s plain black Adidases.

But hey, to each his own, buy it if you like it.
