Nunn Bush
Full color 8" x 11" ad for shoes that scream SEVENTIES at the top of their lungs. The ad headline claims that "This ad tells you all you need to know about shoe fashion" and when you look at the white loafer with the brown tip and brown heel area leaning on the white shoe with the black tip, heel area and area around the white with blue striped laces you have no argument. The text prices these shoes at from $21.95 to $50.00 and then you realize that they want you to pay them to wear them instead of them paying you.
