Sorry, I couldn’t help it. I had to make a fourth return to SHOP TOUR CANAL OFICIAL and their abundance of 1990s’ retail wanders. You can’t fake this era of sport shops and those shelves are ripe with masterpieces that everyone took for granted at the time. Even the budget takedown crap has turned to gold. This is the kind of thing that makes YouTube better than any terrestrial or cable channel. It’s 1992 and 1994 embodied in a few minutes of grainy camerawork and excitable chat, but alas, A Sports USA of 148 E Flagler St, Miami is apparently a luggage shop nowadays.

GOLDEN ERA STORE FOOTAGE

A few months ago I linked to some 1990 Foot Locker store visit footage from this Brazilian shop tour show, but the gems just keeps on coming via the frequently updated SHOP TOUR MEMORIAS – COMERCIAIS YouTube channel. While it isn’t English-language, the neon-accented treasures on show are pretty universal. Check these 1991 clips. The trip to A Sports is particularly impressive, with an examination of Mowabbs, a meeting with someone dressed like an Air Max 90 (“Hi Mr Shoe! Are you alright? Okay! What do you think about A Sports — great, no?”), plus a look at Starter jackets. There’s a shit ton of 1990/1991 clips below with lots of repetition, but if your eyes are peeled you’ll catch some gems. Best. YouTube channel. Ever. Excitable presenter babbling about sportswear during a golden era — no vlogger can come close. Even the soundtracks are excellent. Continue reading GOLDEN ERA STORE FOOTAGE

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. Continue reading FOOT LOCKER 1990
