I had a lot of fun putting together this post. I searched for some ads for vintage running clothes and I’ve got some of the best and I also found some pictures of random people sporting those lovely outfits.
Here’s the thing. If I’ve learned one thing over the years, it’s that fashion repeats itself, it really does…..and people, we are in trouble more specifically, men.
These next two ads are from the Adidas Love Your Body Flash Adidas campaign.
Here are a few vintage Nike ads:
Puma was very popular back in the day. I always associated them with tennis but apparently they had running clothes as well.
I’m pretty sure those type of shorts are gonna make a huge comeback.
I don’t remember this ad for adidas but isn’t this Brooke Shields?
Check out this vintage Adidas ad. It’s pretty old. Adidas has been around a long time.
Why do all the male models look so cheesy? Do you think the photographer said, “Okay guys now do your running pose” and what is with the fist?
And last but not least is my favorite of all the pictures I found because I’m pretty sure I sported this look for all of my elementary school years.
I miss my tube socks and track shorts….I think we should bring that look back. I’d totally wear them both.
What was your favorite article of running clothing from back in the day?
Did you wear tube socks?
