FOOT LOCKER 1990

footlockermiami1990

Blogging in 2016 sometimes feels a little futile, but just when I’m about to leave this site to drift , frozen in October 2016, I find something that only this site’s small (but cherished) readership and I would care about. If I stop doing this thing, then who’s going to dredge up this type of thing? Nobody. I swear nobody’s fishing for strange shoe-related stuff any more. An unnecessarily lengthy Portuguese-language (apologies if I’m wrong — blame my single dialect ignorance) tour of the 3399 Virginia Avenue Foot Locker in Miami filmed in early 1990? That’s pretty much what I made this blog for. I think the store has closed since and is now a bookshop, but check that stock — New Balance 1500s, Agassi takedowns, Air Force STS, Stabs, Air Max Lights, kid’s Jordans. I’m guessing Portuguese because TV Shop Tour was a Brazilian telesales/consumer affairs channel that started as a TV show (which I believe this footage was taken from). Why presenter Luiz Antonio Cury Galebe spent so much time in a Florida Foot Locker branch is beyond me, but I’m very glad that he did. Whatever’s lost in the chatter is covered by the international language of shoe nerdery. Incidentally, I never realised that they actually listened to Gloria Estefan and Miami Sound Machine in Miami either.
