Kickers looks like it was the 70’s equivalent of Sketchers, only slightly more hip. May not be anthropologically qualified to make that statement, so I depend on UK readers to chip in here. Although that is Rod Stewart in heyday, who was much cooler than Kim Kardashian, Tori Spelling, Britney Spears and even Wayne Gretzky. It’s unclear whether the Kickers shoe brand ever had an actual skateboard team considering the lack of functionality in those high heeled shoes that look more at home on Slade or Rod Stewart than they do on anyone riding a skateboard. They did have a sticker though.

Gigantic head… could this be Wolfman Jack?

They may have not had an actual skateboard team, but they did have a skateboard! Sa ka roulé has compiled more 70’s era Kickers related skateboards and advertising from France. Check out the photo of skateboarding boots in action!
