Just a quirky friday topic here - are there any ads or promotions you remember from years past that featured barefoot women? Please share them if you do.

Back in the summer of 2003 I hit puberty, and for a young man of my disposition, even seeing a milimetre of arch emerge from a lady's dangling shoe made "little Duff" spring to attention.

Around that time, the UK Carpet Foundation launched an ad featuring a woman rushing home from work in the pouring rain in her very uncomfortable looking heels.

She gets back to her place and theres a slow mo shot of her heels flying off, then her gorgeous feet touch the carpet. Instantly, the picture "temperature" warms, signifying the sheer bliss and comfort.

Still in her business skirt, she then dances around, poses barefoot (sole shot!) and the camera pans out as she writhes on the floor, her gorgeous feet rubbing up and down the carpet.

Here's a pic from the ad and an article about it: https://www.marketingweek.com/carpet-ads-in...r-sales-market/

Obviously it is not on YT sad.gif

I don't remember the actress' name, but I think she's Irish and double-barelled.... 100 shares in COVID vaccines for whoever can unearth this gem biggrin.gif

Other great ones include a French car ad from 2008 where basically every woman in the world goes barefoot biggrin.gif

Hi!

Nice thread. The YouTube Ritz ad was cute! Thanks for sharing.

I remember long ago, back in the 70s, I watched a TV commercial about a local coffee brand. There was a couple dancing marinera norteņa, a typical folk dance of my country, and the beautiful girl danced barefoot, of course. That was great for little me to see smile.gif

This clips are not the commercial, but the same dance, Marinera Norteņa. You can appreciate how the girls dance barefoot on hot, coarse pavement...

"La mode pieds nus"

Wouldn't that be great? Like in the 60's, when Brigitte Bardot went barefoot everywhere?

Alas! If only some fashion icon women would bring this back! Dreaming is for free.

Back in the 70's, I remember ads for a lotion that was called Pretty Feet and Hands. One involved a tennis player, another for a girl in a dress. Both had great views of their feet.
Another was for Spic 'n Span. It featured the song "Barefootin'" and it had great close-ups of various feet--both women's and men's.

I managed to find the carpet ad from 2003. My heart leapt - but alas it's the "short" version.

https://youtu.be/cKhG9JwHi-s?t=159

The first time I saw it might have been the only airing of the full ad. It was fucking hot! It showed her heels flying off and a real nice close up of her foot hitting the carpet.

Well, I think this is as good as it gets. You can probably guess from the snippet why teenage Duffman loved this ad. biggrin.gif

Also check out this one, which just came out recently! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDQwmxnE_Ag
