Athletes and advertising seems so synonymous these days that it can be hard to imagine a time when the two didn't go hand in hand. But everything has to start somewhere. And in this case it all started with a small German shoe company that grew into the global corporate megaliths Adidas and Puma. The inner-family grudge that divided the original company in two may have started with brothers Adi and Rudolf Dassler, but it came to its existential conclusion with their sons: Horst and Armin. Be sure to watch Chris Silber's excellent series of films about the Dassler brothers: Rivals Forever. And read Naomi Braithwaite's fascinating research into shoe design.

Nowadays, the shoe game may have reached unprecedented heights. But modern sneaker heads might gasp at the realization that the options for dripped-out kicks were, at one point, severely limited. In the mid-twentieth century, between World Wars, even metal cleats on a futbol boot were an unfathomable innovation. That was until brothers Rudolf and Adi Dassler founded a company that, through a combination of athletic competitiveness, sibling rivalry and genuine paranoia, split into two titans of the sportswear industry: Puma and Adidas. And this schism was so deep and festering, that it would linger well after both men were dead and gone. poisoning the generation to come. Be sure to watch Chris Silber's excellent series of films about the Dassler brothers: Rivals Forever. And read Naomi Braithwaite's fascinating research into shoe design.

Long before Marvel and DC started digging through their archives for whatever semi-recognizable spandex-clad heroes they could squeeze into FunkPop form, the people saving the day in Hollywood were just that: people. Everyday ordinary joes, off-duty cops, and cooks who were really former Navy SEALs in disguise. Back in the 80s and 90s, when blockbusters were all about bazookas and brawn, some of the biggest movie stars in the world were guys who looked good in a bloodstained tank-top. Steven Seagal and Jean Claude Van Damme were never the major A-listers. But they certainly knew how to sell a few well-time karate chops. And their verbal sparring brought the two of them close to blows at the height of their fame. Be sure to read James Kendrick's insightful texts on the action genre: Hollywood Bloodshed: Violence in 1980s American Cinema and A Companion to the Action Film.
