Griffin Microsheen Used To Have Some Interesting Shoe Polish Ads In The 1950s

The 1950s were an innocent time in America as far as mainstream advertising went. But one campaign was quite racy. The Griffin Microsheen ads were for men’s shoe polish. But nary a man’s face and rarely a man’s foot ever made an appearance in the campaign. All the ads are from the mid- to late-1950s.
