Billie Jean King Your Shoes

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Direct / Direct Response/Ambient / 2019

In 1973, Billie Jean King played the most important tennis match ever: The Battle of the Sexes. That day, she changed the male-dominated tennis establishment in a pair of blue adidas. For the 45th anniversary, we could have re-released her shoe. But that's not how BJK would do it. She prefers to change things. So we did just that; turning the most iconic adidas into blue BJKs. And at the U.S. Open we invited everyone to BJK their shoes – no matter what brand. For the first time ever, a brand utilized other brands to launch a shoe.
