Nike Shoes in a 400-Year-Old Painting? Exploring the Mystery

Nike Shoes in a 400-Year-Old Painting? Exploring the Mystery

  An art gallery portrait has left art fans bewildered after a mother and daughter duo noticed what appears to be Nike shoes in it. Ferdinand Bol's 17th century painting depicts an eight-year-old boy wearing black jacket and cape, white shirt with ruffled sleeves, auburn socks and black boots - and fans noticed what could possibly be an apparent pair of Nikes within its composition. The Painting An image dating back to the 17th century has caused quite the stir after it appeared to depict Nike shoes. Dutch Master Ferdinand Bol's work shows a portrait of a young boy dressed appropriately for their time - in black coat and cape, white shirt with frilled sleeves, auburn socks and black boots; though one boot in particular shows what appears to be a subtle "Tick-like pattern", similar to Nike swooshes. Visitors to London's National Gallery were baffled when they spotted modern footwear in a 17th century portrait titled 'Portrait of a Boy. Upon closer examination, their boots appear emblazoned with what resembles an iconic Nike tick logo emblazonment reminiscent of this timeless masterpiece. Many have interpreted the discovery of the Nike tick in an ancient painting as evidence of time travel, given that Nike wasn't founded until several centuries after this painting was painted. Yet it's hardly the first time modern items have appeared in ancient art - just last month an image emerged purporting to depict a woman carrying her iPhone while walking through a field! The Shoes An explicit Nike tick can be seen on the shoes of an eight-year-old boy in a portrait painted hundreds of years ago by Dutch Master Ferdinand Bol. Visitors to London's National Gallery were quick to spot this feature from Ferdinand Bol's 17th Century work Portrait of a Boy, depicting an expressionless youngster holding a goblet; viewers include Fiona Foskett (57) and her daughter Holly (23) who couldn't miss seeing these trainers! Boots worn by the boy resemble the famous Nike tick logo inextricably, leaving many to wonder why such similarities exist when the latter was only created hundreds of years after this painting was completed. Nike was established in Oregon by Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman. They started by importing Onitsuka Tiger athletic shoes from Japan, which they rebranded under the Nike name. Their inaugural running shoe was the Cortez model; designed specifically to enhance runners' running experience. Today it remains a popular option among runners worldwide. Later that same year, Nike unveiled the Air Force 1 sneaker - one of their most acclaimed sneaker models ever created and beloved worldwide by sneaker enthusiasts everywhere. Notable variations include Travis Scott, Don C and Virgil Abloh's Off White brand; all contributing unique versions to make up its legacy as one of Nike's best-selling sneaker designs of all time. The Confusion Sneakers have long held a special mystique that transcends utilitarian wear. Sneakers have come to be seen as symbols of youth, power, and individuality - worn by sports stars, celebrities, prison inmates - even early hip-hop icons frequently referenced their sneakers in songs -- Run DMC even earned themselves an Adidas sponsorship deal for singing about "My Adidas." Today they remain at the center of street style. Visitors at London's National Gallery were stunned when they noticed one of the paintings featured what looked like Nike trainers, sparking quite an uproar. This painting by Dutch Master Ferdinand Bol depicts an eight-year-old wearing traditional 17th century attire: black jacket and cape, white shirt with ruffled sleeves, auburn socks, and black boots with white tick marks resembling Nike swooshes - causing much debate within and outside the gallery itself. No one knows for certain whether the tick on these shoes was accidentally inadvertent or if they were intentionally decorated with it for aesthetic effect; nonetheless, their discovery has caused quite an uproar online and beyond. But modern items have long been seen in antique artwork; last month a pair of Nike Air Max 90s was found in an 18th-century painting! Why does Nike baffle people so much? Bill Bowerman, Nike's co-founder in 1964, may hold the answer to this conundrum. According to legend, while enjoying breakfast one morning with his wife eating waffles he experienced a "waffle iron epiphany." Realizing the grooves were an ideal mold for multi-terrain soles for his athletes' use, he began pouring molten rubber onto iron after iron until perfecting his waffle sole pattern that continues today in Nike (cofounded by him in 1964). The Answer People were left stunned after discovering what appear to be "Nike shoes" in a 400-year-old painting by Dutch Master Ferdinand Bol from the 17th Century. Although his outfit fits with that period, upon closer examination his shoes appear to feature what could be mistaken for an uncannily similar white tick that can be found on Nike swooshes today - prompting people to speculate this art piece may provide proof of time travel since Nike was founded hundreds of years after this painting was painted. Nike Cortez sneakers were one of the most beloved sneaker designs ever. First seen on streets in 1973, by late 80s they were ubiquitous among young Americans interested in sneakers; popular with California's black and Hispanic communities and Eazy-E (in his gangster rap days). Today the shoe remains beloved brand that continues to create waves in footwear industry. Modern items have frequently been seen buried within ancient paintings, leaving art fans puzzled. Just last month, art fans were shocked to find what appeared to be an iPhone in a painting from 150 years ago; prior to that a pair of Nikes was discovered hidden within another work created 200 years prior. Actually, the sneakers depicted in this painting may be replicas even though they resemble originals closely. Fake Nike shoes manufactured in China can often be difficult to tell apart from genuine pairs - the easiest way is by looking closely at workmanship such as uneven stitching or glue spots; otherwise if unsure, simply ask one of the staff at the gallery for assistance.
