As futuristic, efficient, and advanced as basketball shoes have become, there’s still an everlasting appeal for the styles of years past.
Whether on the NCAA or NBA courts, players of all levels are regularly spotted in models that were originally introduced in the 1990s. A lot of it stems from nostalgia, and the desire to emulate the players you used to watch growing up, hoping to possibly channel a little of their skill or flair. Of course, you can’t forget about the marketing of the early-mid ’90s, which was just as iconic as the sneakers themselves.

Is it the nostalgic factor getting to us, or are these classic commercials far more entertaining than what we usually see nowadays? Check them out for yourself and let us know. These are Classic Basketball Ads from 1990-95.
