We like to think of ourselves as above most advertising head games. A shoe is a shoe, and all the flashy endorsements in the world won’t change what it is.

But these are still pretty sweet.

Liquid Generation’s latest video covers the best of the last 20 years of sneaker commercials, from Patrick Ewing’s Adidas line to MC Hammer’s British Knights spot.

And, of course, high-top after high-top.
