They don't make'em like this anymore! This early Foot Locker commercial, complete with a cheesey 80's theme song, features a wide array of sports including BMX, aerobics, basketball, baseball, and even...hacky sack?!  Apparently you could get a shoe for any sport you needed at Foot Locker back then.

The interesting thing about this commercial is the wide variety of brands featured.  In today's sneaker market dominated by just a few brands, it's refreshing to see a large selection of footwear brands to choose from.  We get a look at shoes from Avia, adidas, Nike, Puma, Reebok, Converse, New Balance, and even the obscure brand Lynx.

Sit back and watch this commercial from a more simple time: the 1980's.
