Bobby's Nike Air Span
Last week I was totally obsessed with watching the full series of The Kids in the Hall. I loved this series growing up, and I feel it inspired a lot of other strange and weirdo comedy that we get to enjoy today. It was also from the era that I really got into Nike sneakers, and I noticed a few glimpses of Nikes while I re-watched the series, the most noticeable is the sketch Bobby vs Satan (Bruce McCulloch as Bobby and Mark McKinney as Satan). Check out Bobby’s Nike Air Span, all beat up and grimey like any true rocker/banger would wear them. Also, enjoy the clip below, one of my favorite sketches off the show. I wonder if Jack Black got some ideas from this… hmmmm.
In summer 1993 I was preparing to go to Rautin’s/House Basketball camp. I needed a new pair and wanted something I could wear to my grade 8 graduation. I remember when I got them I really wanted the Air Raid II’s, the black ones with the funky colorful afro-centric type of patterns on the back, but they were out of my mom’s set price range. I settled for an all black pair of Air Sheer Force (similar to the pic above except a blacked out swoosh). These shoes weren’t bad but for some reason the guy at Footlocker convinced my mom that I needed size 12’s!! My last shoes were size 10 or 11, and he said I would grow into them or something like that hahahaha (keep in mind I’m a grown now and wear 10-11 depending on the model of shoe). Needless to say I was tripping and slipping in those big ass shoes and it definitely effected my performance at camp. Peep this hilarious bonus pic of me wearing them off the court in 93, notice how crazy big they look and how ridiculously tight I had to tie them up!
