Remember Wayne Gretzky's street hockey shoes?

Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Brett Hull - LA Gear street hockey commercial (1996)

In the 90s, LA Gear teamed up with Wayne Gretzky to release a line of street hockey shoes.

These shoes are like the hockey version of Jordan’s. And we know what you’re thinking, you want to be like Wayne. Maybe these shoes will also turn you into the greatest hockey player ever. Well, look no further, because that’s EXACTLY what these bad boys will do for you.

Within the advertisement, two brothers are seen playing street hockey, both rocking the classic 99 Gretzky jersey though as each one sets up to take a shot on goal, they suddenly turn into Wayner himself.

It’s sad to think that LA Gear had Michael Jackson and Wayne Gretzky on side and still couldn’t reign supreme.
