Not a fan of it at all. The photo doesn't explain the product nearly enough for it to be effective.

I think the visual and copy together are quite enough to explain this product. I quite like these ads, yet something feels awkward. Just because it's made of balls makes it an object that's being used as a ball? I see the link, but it's not a logical one. Maybe I'm overanalyzing it...

I think it's possible, even likely, that a more pedestrian, hard-working approach would serve this product better. For example, closer photography would have given you something in hand to look at. I guess they reached for the sun and stars, but the problem is that most people don't know about the product, don't get it, and need to have it rather plainly explained to them at least once. Maybe the company did that years ago now. But again, it's possible, even likely, that shoes from sports balls is such an odd idea that it will always have to be explained as if it was the first time.

That's it.

Nice ad, but I can't believe they actually make shoes out of balls.

i wouldn't buy these shoes.. do they really look like game balls?. They are grotesque looking pieces of footwear if I may say so.

I think these shoes are not made of balls, but from the same materials balls are made of.
It's not perfectly logical, but at least a bit fun, and the product looks cool imho.
