The 50 Greatest Sneaker Moments In Movies

40. Run Through The Jungle. In Scottie Pippens.

Movie: George of the Jungle
Sneaker: Nike Air More Uptempo

This is a terrible, terrible film. But the movie adaptation of 'George of the Jungle' incorporates an utterly unnecessary scene where George exits a crate in Africa, opens a Nike box and laces up in a pair of the anti-subtle Air More Uptempos. The camera dwells on the shoe and George runs off in to the wilderness in them. It's blatant to the point of obnoxiousness. Why a basketball shoe instead of a running shoe? And why do they come out of a Nike Air Muscle Max box?
