Message crowd of shareholders at Nike’s annual meeting in 2 Répondre en citant
Almost 20 Nike Air Max 90 Homme Noir years ago, Nike set out to craft a shoe that delivers peak performance for athletes while reducing manufacturing waste in the process. In reality, what it created was a war that would give rise to hundreds of thousands – if not millions – of dollars in costs and stretch over years and continents. Inside Nike’s ultra-secretive Beaverton, Oregon headquarters, this shoe took the form of years of intensive research and development, Nike Air Max Classic BW Donne and expenses that CEO Mark Parker thought the $86 billion sportswear giant might Nike Air Pegasus 89 Womens never recoup.But then in February 2012, Nike debuted what was deemed to be the most momentous innovation in the fiercely competitive, and multibillion-dollar-earning www.flavorz.co.uk sneaker market in years. It was Flyknit.The technology, itself, uses yarn and fabric variations to engineer “a featherweight, formfitting and virtually seamless upper.” In addition to “a precision fit,” the woven upper of Flyknit footwear – the first sneakers to bear an upper that consists of a single piece of material, as opposed to one derived from different pieces stitched together – results in little to no waste in the manufacturing process.With roots at Nike that date back to at least 2000, when the Oregon-based sportswear giant made its very first prototype in working to create Nike Air Max TN Femme a sneaker with a woven-fabric upper, the technology represents “the right direction for Nike Air Max 95 Womens Nike, from both a bottom-line and an environmental perspective,” Parker told the Wall Street Journal in 2015. And it has performed. In the five years since its Nike Air Max 90 Femme initial release, sneakers that bear the Flyknit technology have brought in upwards of $1 billion in sales for Nike.

Within five months of the debut of the Nike Flyknit came another striking development: adidas unveiled knitted footwear of its own, Primeknit. Hailing the product as "a first-of-its-kind running shoe,” adidas’ Primeknit was borne from a method that involves digitally knitting a single piece of fused yarn to create a single-thread upper and reduce material waste.While James Carnes, adidas' head of sport performance design, said at the time that the Primeknit had been Nike Air Max 90 Dámské černé in development for three years, and while adidas executives had, for some time, “been quietly Nike Air Huarache Femme telling a select number of footwear industry figures” about their own Primeknit technology, no one was prepared for what was to come ... except maybe Nike."Adidas Nike Free Run 3.0 Femme told me they were working on a similar technology to Flyknit," trusted footwear analyst Matt Powell, told OregonLive, "but I had no idea it was this similar."The likeness of the adidas’ shoe to that of its American rival’s Flyknit was unmistakable.Adidas called its Primeknit shoe “one of [its] most exciting and sustainable products ever.” Nike called it a copy.“I am not surprised at the admiration – and the imitation – [the Flyknit] has generated," Mark Parker told a crowd of shareholders at Nike’s annual meeting in 2012. In the wings, the sneaker juggernaut’s sizable legal team was readying for battle: adidas would soon be on the receiving end of a swift and strongly-worded Nike Air Presto Femme lawsuit, not terribly unlike the 2006 suit that Nike filed against its archrival, claiming that it was making footwear using elements of patent-protected SHOX Nike Air Max 98 Femme technology.

The world’s largest sportswear company wanted adidas’ Primeknit footwear shut down and it wanted it done now.Yes, almost immediately following the debut of adidas’ knitted footwear came a patent infringement lawsuit, filed in a District Court in Nuremberg, Germany, in which Nike sought to prohibit adidas from making and selling the Primeknit in Germany immediately, for the duration of the litigation and depending on the outcome of the case, permanently thereafter.(The ultimate aspiration is to open Speedfactories in many more regions, but not right away.)"Nike has a strong heritage of innovation and leadership in footwear design and development," the company www.karolien.fr asserted in an official statement in conjunction with its lawsuit filing. "Our patents are the foundation of that leadership and we protect them vigorously."

It didn’t take long for an informant to offer a lead on McLaughlin’s whereabouts—France, where Simone had legal residency—but it still took months Nike Air Presto Femme for Lewin and the prosecutors to persuade U.S. courts and State Department officials to go after McLaughlin and enforce a 14-year prison sentence that had been Nike Air Max Zero Mujer issued by a federal judge after he fled. Even then, French officials were reluctant to cooperate. McLaughlin’s actions, though criminal in the U.S., violated no French law. Lewin says he was told that McLaughlin was viewed abroad as a “local investor,” which Lewin took to mean he was paying people off. (Or, as Lewin says now, “The French were whores.”)Eventually French authorities agreed to keep an eye on the target for a period of 24 to 48 hours, as Lewin remembers it, but when U.S. marshals arrived, McLaughlin had fled. They followed his trail south to Ivory Coast in West Africa (where Simone had relatives and where local authorities again had him detained), but again Nike Air Max 97 Damen McLaughlin eluded them. The arriving marshals were told their man had headed east, to Ghana. There was talk of guards being bribed by a (possibly fake) Rolex.Begrudgingly, Nike Air Pegasus 83 Mens Lewin called off the dogs. His clients were satisfied with shutting down the shoe ring that had been undercutting their profits; in its absence they almost immediately Nike Air Max 1 Femme saw their Mexican sales surge as much as 30%. A global manhunt wasn’t worth the cost. U.S. law enforcement had more pressing cases to handle.

For Lewin, though, the saga was hardly over. The man he’d spent months pursuing was loose—and now McLaughlin was periodically dialing Lewin from God-knows-where, always early in the morning, at his office, on a near-weekly basis. McLaughlin chatted about the weather and inquired about Lewin’s business, lamenting the fact that his adversary couldn’t join him for dinner sometime. Looking back, Lewin feels there was more to these calls than braggadocio or conviviality, like they were driven by some twisted sense of respect. Adidas ZX Flux Mujer McLaughlin had grown so accustomed to outwitting others, and here was Lewin, defying his persuasion. “I think, in Byron’s mind, I’m his equal,” Lewin says. “I caught Nike Air Max 90 Femme Rose him.”Throughout those conversations McLaughlin would occasionally mention his desire to someday return Stateside. Lewin sensed a potential deal, and on an unrelated business trip to France in the late 1990s, several years after his case closed, he finally arranged to meet his antagonist. Years had passed; Lewin hoped that time had softened his old foe’s resistance. The two men planned to rendezvous in the lobby of an upscale hotel in Paris, and on the day of the meeting Lewin found the man he’d come to know so well: bold, self-aggrandizing, uncompromising. “I have a vague remembrance of him sitting in a gilded chair,” Lewin says. “I don’t know if that’s just my Nike Blazer Femme imagination.”

McLaughlin proposed a dollar amount he would be willing to pay as restitution, far below those dictated by his legal settlements. Lewin told him to get Nike Air Max 90 Womens serious. McLaughlin asked how he could return to the States. Lewin told him he could serve his time in prison. “He’d float and float, and dangle and dangle,” Lewin says today of that negotiation. “But when it came time to do something concrete, he just wouldn’t do it.”After an hour of this, Lewin had enough. “This is going nowhere,” he said, standing up. And he left. He hasn’t seen McLaughlin since.Google did not exist in 1989, and so it took a while before Lewin learned that the target of his investigation was a former major leaguer. “I looked that up and I said to myself, ‘What a jerk,’” Lewin recounts. “You don’t feel sorry for a guy like that.”Lewin, 73 now, gazes Nike Air Huarache Femme out the window of his 27th-floor midtown-Manhattan attorney’s office. The top two buttons on his sand-colored linen shirt rest unclasped, and with his single earring Nike Air Max 98 Damen he wears the look of a Key West retiree. “Most of the time when you hear about trouble with professional athletes,” he says, “it’s drugs or some sort of altercation with the police or a domestic dispute—that sort of low-level but terrifying activity. Byron was anything but that. He was confident, sanguine, smart. He was the kind of guy that if he put the same talent to good use, he’d probably have made a lot more money. But [those people] can’t help it. They’re always cutting corners, always trying to make a buck a funny way.”

Message an unusual legal theory that casts univer Répondre en citant
One morning late last August, Miami men's basketball coach Jim Larranaga was about to board a flight to North Carolina for a recruiting trip when he got a phone call from his wife.Two FBI agents were at Nike Air Max 2017 Donne the house, Liz Larranaga told her husband. She then handed the phone to one of the agents, who asked Jim to remain at the airport until they reached him.One month later, at a news conference in New York City, a federal prosecutor and a top FBI official touted the results of an ongoing investigation into the black Nike Air Max 90 Herren market surrounding college basketball.A "high-level" Adidas executive had arranged six-figure payments for the families of high school recruits, prosecutors alleged, at the behest of coaches at Miami and Louisville. Assistant coaches at Auburn, Oklahoma State, Arizona and Southern California had all taken money from a financial adviser and an aspiring NBA agent, according to criminal complaints, and agreed to steer college stars their way.Ten teams of FBI agents made arrests in 10 states that week, according to court records Nike Air Presto Womens and people familiar with the investigation, while an 11th group of agents raided the New Jersey office of prominent NBA agent Andy Miller."All of those charged today contributed to a pay-to-play culture that has no business in college basketball," said Bill Sweeney, assistant director in charge of the FBI'Nike Free Run 3.0 Femme s New York field office. "Today's arrests should serve as a warning to others. … We have your playbook."Five months later, with the NCAA's premier event and moneymaker — the men's basketball tournament — about to tip off, the sport remains in turmoil.

The FBI probe continues, threatening to tarnish legacies, end careers Nike Air Max 1 Mujer and send coaches and shoe company officials to prison.But what that menacing cloud will amount to remains unclear. So far, the three-plus-year federal inquiry has resulted in the arrests of mostly low-level Nike Air Huarache Femmefigures in the college sports black market, and the criminal charges they face stem from NCAA rules many economists deem quaint and outmoded, if not exploitative.While criminal complaints allege coaches at Louisville and Miami later identified as Rick Pitino and Larranaga arranged bribes for recruits, neither Adidas ZX Flux Mujer has been charged with a crime. Nor has Miller, the NBA agent whose office was raided.The Adidas executive the investigation ensnared — Jim Gatto, director of global sports marketing — occupies a more modest station in life than prosecutors have suggested, according to Gatto's lawyers. Gatto, 47, made $139,000 last Nike Air Huarache Mujer year and lives in a home outside Portland, Oregon, valued at about $500,000, with two children and his wife, who works as a sales associate at an Ann Taylor retail outlet."This is like Enron, except if they only charged Adidas NMD Womens the secretaries," said Steve Haney, attorney for defendant Christian Dawkins, a former assistant to Miller.The charges at the core of these cases are based on an unusual legal theory that casts universities — who stood to benefit from recruits playing for wildly profitable basketball teams — as victims of Nike Roshe Run Mujer fraud.

What prosecutors call bribes, legal experts note, would be considered signing bonuses and referral fees in other industries. The payments are illicit only because the NCAA prohibits amateur athletes from making money from their talents and bars coaches from facilitating, and profiting from, meetings between Nike Air Max 1 Femme agents and athletes."If you take away the NCAA rules, there's no criminal case here," said Randall Eliason, a former federal prosecutor and law professor at George Washington University. "There are some legitimate questions about whether this was a wise use of resources."Pitino, fired by Louisville in October, adamantly maintains he has never arranged payments for recruits. So has Larranaga, who spoke with FBI agents for several hours last August and has turned over reams of emails and phone records, along with those Nike Air Max 90 Mujer Negras of his assistants, in an effort to clear his name, according to his attorney, Stuart Grossman."We're baffled," said Grossman, who provided the account of the coach's experience last August. "They won't charge him, and they won't tell us what it is they have or what it is they think they have."To economists such Nike Air Huarache Donne as Schwarz, the behavior Emmert is referring to is a consequence of amateurism, which they argue creates a yawning gap between the amount of money college athletes could command in an open market from schools and companies vying for their skills and endorsement rights, and what they currently can earn to play college sports.

Message lar, but so was the crazy story that Kopp and Morillion Répondre en citant
Kopp and Morillion spent their lives in sneakers. It was clear that they had become the dominant footwear of their generation. And it was also clear to them that there were many problems with the way that sneakers Nike Air Vapormax Dam were being made, particularly by huge sportswear corporations. In the ’90s, brands like Nike and Adidas were often in the news because of the labor violations that were taking place in their factories. And after just a few short years studying supply chains, they realized that sneakers were made of materials that were highly polluting Nike Roshe Run Dam to the environment.“We had to learn about each component that was used to make a sneaker,” Kopp says. “There are only three: leather, rubber, and canvas, which is made from cotton. And we decided we would find the most sustainable version of each of these raw materials.”With $5,000 of their savings in their pocket, Kopp and Morillion went on an adventure throughout the developing world, looking for safer materials to use in their new sneaker collection. They discovered that if they lived humbly, it was relatively inexpensive to travel around South America to do this work. “We stayed at cheap Adidas ZX Flux Mujer hostels,” Kopp says. “In fact, we still don’t stay at luxury hotels when we travel to Brazil, which happens a Nike Air Max 2017 Womens lot. There’s a lot you can do when you don’t need to spend a lot of money on travel and lodging.”

It was in Brazil where they found Nike Air Max 90 Mujer Negras a collective that produced organic cotton, which is still rare. “Cotton is a very vulnerable crop,” Kopp says. “Most farmers need to use a lot of pesticides so that their harvest survives, but that means a lot of pollution and the possibility that their [drinking] water will be poisoned.”The Adidas Superstar Hombre pair found a group of rubber tappers in the Amazon who cultivated wild rubber, to use in making the sole of the sneaker. Not only would using rubber help employ these people, but rubber is biodegradable. “We discovered that many sneakers use plastic as their sole, but when the wearer is done with that Nike Air Presto Mujer sneaker, that plastic ends up in a landfill and does not decompose,” Kopp says.Of course, they were still left with the problem that they didn’t know the first thing about shoe design. Rather than hiring an expensive designer, Kopp decided he would Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Donne just teach himself the principles of how to create a sneaker. “We had taught ourselves everything at that point,” he says. “We had figured out what it took to manufacture a sneaker and how to build out a supply chain. We had taught ourselves Portuguese to be able to speak with the local Adidas Superstar Mujer Negras workers. Why couldn’t I just learn how to design a shoe? When you’re 25, you believe you can do anything. And maybe you can.”Kopp’s designs are inspired by vintage sneakers and are generally minimalistic. Veja sneakers are identified by the “V” that is built into the pattern on each side. When they brought their shoes to market, starting at little trade Adidas ZX 750 Mujerfairs, buyers were instantly intrigued.

The designs were popular, but so was the crazy story that Kopp and Morillion told. Their first run of 2,000 sneakers were quickly snapped up by retailers, Kopp says, and they asked for more shoes. But given Veja’s unusual supply chain, it was not so easy to make more quickly, so the founders told the buyers they would simply have to wait. The next season, they doubled their production, and that has been happening every year since then.Veja would Adidas ZX 750 Mujer probably have grown faster if it advertised. But from the very beginning, Kopp and Morillion have been opposed to buying fancy ads in magazines and on billboards. The brand spends a lot more on raw materials than their competitors, since they are purchasing from small, independent vendors, rather than from middlemen selling on the open market, where the commodities cannot be traced. Kopp estimates Adidas ZX 750 Donne that the cost of making a Veja shoe is several times higher than at one of the big sneaker corporations. So Kopp and Morillion’s solution was to cut out advertising, which is very expensive, and would force them to either increase their prices or drive down the price of the raw materials they use.Despite this, Veja has cultivated a sizable fan base around the world. Many customers buy the shoes primarily because they love the aesthetic.Nike Air Force 1 Femme In fact, a proportion of buyers don’t even realize the shoes have such a fascinating backstory. But this doesn’t bother Kopp. “The new manufacturer entrants in the market are finding it hard to compete with the international vendors based on quality, reliability, and innovations in technology.

Message ve some cash. Just hit Costco. As you head to the registe Répondre en citant
Remember the days as a youth, watching dad mow the lawn in khaki cargo shorts, white tube socks hiked up to his calves and a pair of grass-stained white and navy Nike Air Monarchs, and thinking, “I can’t wait to look just like him when I grow up”? Yeah, me neither.Listen, if you’re both fashion-focused and a sneaker fan, you want your kicks to stand out. But shoes reminiscent of what your Adidas Superstar Mujer Negras 50- or 60-year-old Nike Air Presto Donne father laces up to Adidas NMD Mujer strangulation-level tightness heading to Home Depot for caulk and duct tape isn’t the answer.If you’re looking for sneakers that will turn heads, there’s plenty to choose from that don’t look like you have to knock a layer of dust off before lacing up.The athletic brands dominating the market today have several innovative new styles that are absolute must-haves (i.e. Nike Epic Flyknit React). And if retro is your thing, those same labels have deep catalogues with sneakers that don’t look like they should come with an AARP card, regardless of when they debuted (i.e. Adidas Originals Stan Smith).Typically, when I am anti-something, there’s some moral or ethical reasoning behind my stance. But with the dad shoe trend, there is no profound rationale. They’re just gross to me. There’s nothing aesthetically Adidas Superstar Femme Noir appealing Nike Air Max 98 Femme about dad shoes, Adidas Superstar Hombre in my opinion (especially if you’re in your 20s or 30s and not actually a dad).What’s also irritating about this trend is its ever-changing definition. Ask five people to define the dad shoe trend and you’re sure to get five different responses.

(Nike’s Air Monarch is undoubtedly the pioneer, but one publication recently credited the start of the trend to Balenciaga, which only entered the conversation in 2017.) Mostly, it comes down to an ugly look with a chunky profile. Why this sounds appealing to anyone is something I will never understand.And while athletic brand dad shoes are appalling, what’s even worse are the monstrosities delivered by fashion labels. For spring ’18, trend-right looks from high-end labels such as Vuitton and Balenciaga have become the new airport shoe for the fashion industry, Nike Air Max 90 Dames Grijs replacing the Gucci Nike Air Max 2017 Mujer Princetown fur loafer.These Nike Air Max 2017 Womens fashion brands in the mix want people to wear horrid chunky sneakers, but they’re charging more than what it would cost for a round-trip flight from New York to California for a pair. (Looking at you, Balenciaga, and that putrid Triple S.)But if you’re really interested in dad shoes, there are ways you can still look trend-right and save some cash. Just hit Costco. As you head to the register with your cart full of industrial-size packages of paper towels and ground beef, grab yourself some Kirkland Signature sneakers, which most people would mistake as Monarchs. (Does Kirkland Signature sound familiar? It should. It’s the company that also sells its own diapers, maple syrup and cat food.)

You're still giving them money and you're doing it with the intent of Nike Air Max 2017 Mujer influencing them," Haney said.The NCAA has cracked down in some high-profile cases but acknowledges it is not an investigative agency with teams of detectives. In 2010, twww.natsynchroarras.fr/he organization declared Renardo Sidney ineligible for parts of two seasons after determining that the Mississippi State forward and his family received "preferential treatment." Reebok, the Massachusetts sneaker brand, had sponsored a club team run by Sidney's father.The NCAA determined that the Sidney family benefitted financially from the sponsorship deal, Adidas Stan Smith Mujer receiving merchandise and travel money. Reebok reportedly signed Sidney's father to a $20,000 a year consulting agreement.Don Jackson, a Mobile, Alabama, lawyer who represented the Sidney family, said the NCAA got just about everything wrong in the Sidney case. "First of all, these kinds of relationships between Adidas Superstar Dam Rosa a shoe company and a parent -- there's nothing inherently sinister or wrong with that," he said. "Quite often there's an altruistic motive. Unfortunately, as with any arrangement like this, there's a potential for misunderstanding."The NCAA apparently hoped the disciplinary action would discourage others from accepting Adidas Superstar Dames Wit similar treatment. "This case is about more than a single student-athlete," said Kevin Lennon, the NCAA's vice president for academic and membership affairs. "One of our core responsibilities is to ensure Adidas Superstar Dam Svart a level playing field for all student athletes and their teams."

NCAA compliance experts say the fallout may land on the athlete, not the grassroots team or the apparel companies."There are potential problems if these athletes attempt to play for an NCAA Division I program," said Dionne Koller, a professor Nike Air Max 360 Femme Homme at the University of Baltimore School of Law and a sports law expert. "You could make a good case that these players aren't 'amateurs' under the NCAA's definition because of all the benefits they are receiving."The corruption scandal comes just as sales of basketball shoes have cratered. U.S. revenues fell 13 percent Nike Air Max Zero Womens in 2017, to about $950 million, according to Matt Powell, a prominent market analyst. That's also a 26 percent drop from just two years ago.Nike and its Jordan Brand division dominate the category with about 80 percent market share. Under Armour has a 12.1 percent share, largely driven by its Stephen Curry collection.Though it is enjoying a brand-wide resurgence and continues to win market share from Nike, Adidas remains an also-ran in the basketball business. The German company's share of the U.S. market totaled www.lorsofurioso.it less than 5 percent in 2017.The scandal has had a negligible impact on sales, Powell said.Shortly after the September 2017 arrests in the basketball scandal, concerns emerged about whether the big three shoe companies were reconsidering their commitment to grassroots teams. Coaches and players across the country Nike Roshe Run Dam wondered whether the sneaker makers would deem the risk no longer acceptable and pull the plug on the leagues.But the raw talent on display in the elite youth game has attracted huge audiences. The sneaker companies show no signs of walking away.

On a recent Saturday night, the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers have just handily won a game at the 23rd annual Nike Extravaganza, a gathering of the best Nike-sponsored high school teams in Southern California.Some thought Sierra Canyon would be down after Bagley's early departure Nike Air Max 95 Womens for Duke. But the Trail Blazers just regrouped with a new raft of top-talent players, this time NBA progeny.The media throngs pressed for post-game interviews.

Pharrell Williams has done it again — another collaboration with Adidas that is sure to inspire sneakerheads everywhere. Adidas recently overtook Jordan Brand as the second-most profitable sneaker company in North America, behind only Nike. Pharrell Nike Air Max 97 Femme surely contributed to its massive growth.Pharrell already has his own fashion brand called Billionaire Boys Club (BBC), which was created in 2005 in partnership with NIGO, founder of the famed streetwear brand A Nike Air Vapormax Femme Bathing Ape. BBC is known for its Spaceman logo, intended to represent the idea that money is not its only inspiration despite the conspicuous brand name. Pharrell also founded ICECREAM, BBC’s sister brand, in 2012. He has Nike Air Max 90 Uomo collaborated with Adidas multiple times for the past few years, starting with a rainbow-colored lineup of Adidas Superstar shoes in 2014 and more recently collaborating on Hu NMDs.He is well known for incorporating all over prints and bright colors. In 2015, he released 50 new colorways for the Adidas Superstar, and they sold out instantly. They are collectively known as the Adidas Heritage Styles. Adding to his fashion bona fides, Pharrell was awarded the Fashion Icon Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 2015 by none other than Kanye West.The Hu NMDs were first released in 2016 and steadily Nike Air Max 90 Dam Rosa re-released in a variety of new colorways. Pharrell set out with the goal to “explore humanity and celebrate diversity around the world.” The low-top sneakers usually feature a black cage overlay, a white BOOST sole, Adidas ZX Flux Womens and English phrases such as “human” or “race” emblazoned across the upper.

At ComplexCon 2017, the now three-year-old convention for style, music, art, and sneakers, Pharrell debuted an exclusive N.E.R.D. Hu NMD, with resell values reaching $3,000. This particular sneaker pays tribute to N.E.R.D., the pop band with which Pharrell is associated and crossed genres in the 2000s and recently released a comeback album after a hiatus of seven years. The sneaker was part of a workout gear capsule collection by Adidas Originals.In November of last year, Pharrell released another Hu NMD exclusively through Billionaire Nike Air Vapormax Donne Boys Club. This sneaker was a more subtle version, with soft shades of pink, gray, and blue, instantly branded with the name “Cotton Candy.” Sold out instantly online and in stores, the shoe has become an instant classic Nike Air Max 2017 Womens among sneakerheads. Resell values peaked around $2,000 and have since stabilized. Four additional versions (tan, black, multicolor, and blue) of the NMD part of a “Statement Hiking” collection were also released that same weekend Nike Air Max Zero Femme but were widely available. Shortly after, Adidas gave out deluxe Friends and Family packages containing the black NMD and essential hiking gear to a select few.The epic three-way collaboration Hu NMD with Pharrell, Adidas, and Chanel rounded out his runaway success. This time, the highlight sneaker was limited to only 500 pairs and they were only sold in Paris, France with no worldwide Nike Air Max 98 Donne shipping.

The sneaker collaboration marked his first joint design with the fashion house although Pharrell was the first male model for the Gabrielle handbag, walked in its runway shows, and even appeared in a short Nike Cortez Femme film directed by Karl Lagerfeld, the legendary creative director of Chanel. The shoe retailed for around $1,000, but resell values have shot up to $10,000 — undoubtedly an eye-watering amount for a pair of sneakers. He also tapped Nike Air Max 95 Femme Colette, the renowned Paris concept store, to host the event. This was especially significant since it was Colette’s final year in business. An astonishing 120,000 people signed up for a chance to get the shoes. These have been rightfully called one of the world’s most exclusive sneakers. A bailiff selected 500 lucky winners.Earlier this year, Pharrell debuted a new type of sneaker with Adidas, Adidas ZX 750 Donne only available at the brand’s two-day 747 Warehouse Street event in February in Los Angeles to mark the 2018 NBA All-Star Weekend and celebrate the sport of basketball and its culture. He introduced the Crazy Boost Nike Free Run 2.0 Damen You Wear shoe, with bright yellow, red, and green colors. The construction of the shoe is designed to enhance comfort and be breathable. The upper branding reads “Ambition,” fitting given that the Crazy BYW is Pharrell’s Nike Air Vapormax Dam first foray into basketball. This will probably not be seeing a general release, although you can head to the secondary market to pick up one for $1,200.

Actress, entrepreneur, activist and expectant mother Eva Longoria has walked the red carpet in gowns from Nike Air Max 2016 Damen some of today’s most noted designers. And while Victoria Beckham is among her favorites, she is no stranger to the world of fashion.According to Longoria, who’s launching an eponymous apparel line on shopping channel HSN tonight at 9 p.m. ET, she started sewing at 7 and Nike Free 5.0 Donne is hands-on when it comes to the design of the collection. “I do everything,” she said. “I’ve always been obsessed with the construction of a garment, from seams to fabrics, all the way to marketing. I’ll bring fabrics back home from different countries. I was in India and had to buy an extra suitcase for Nike Free Run 3.0 Femme fabrics I picked up. I’m involved in every aspect. It’s very natural and organic.”While Longoria has been selling the collection on her e-commerce site since 2016, she was lured by the unique format HSN offers. “I love speaking to all of the clothes. I love telling Nike Air Huarache Womens people my inspiration, how to style [them] and about the fabric. For me, it’s right up my alley to talk to women directly and tell them why this line’s amazing.”Since Longoria doesn’t offer shoes in her brand, she relies on footwear designers such as Brian Atwood, Nike Roshe Run Donne Gianvito Rossi and Pedro Garcia to finish off her own look. “For my casual wear, I love Vince, and James Perse has some great casual shoes,” she said. “I love Vans. They’re like an elevated sneaker that’s a little more fashion-0forward. I wear a lot of Adidas and Nike. And just black shoes alone, I have 50 pairs.” For formal occasions, she turns to Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik.

Here, Longoria shares her favorite fashion and her go-to shoe looks.“It’s classic comfort, It’s [about] being physically comfortable in [the clothes]. Are the fabrics Nike Air Max 90 Womens feeling good against your skin? Do you feel empowered in them, strong, beautiful? I want people to feel good emotionally when they put on a garment of mine. Athleisurewear has taken off, so we have [those] pieces. But mine are a little more dressed up, with some amazing Nike Air Presto Femme trim, great hemlines and special details.”“For the most part, I love dressing up and being able to be many things. Women can be more than one thing at one time. If they’re in mom life, work life, going-out social life, there’s something [they] can wear for each. We can wear different hats and different outfits, that’s my style. I’m totally at the mercy of what I’m doing and where I’m going.”“Right now, because I’m pregnant, I’m into comfort. I always love a platform because it’s less stress on the foot, but I also have gone into a lower heel. I don’t think 5-inch Nike Air Max 90 Donne single-sole shoes are modern anymore, so I am using a lower heel that’s still single sole. Platforms are also a little more modern.”All the top athletic brands have cross-training sneakers on retail shelves. Nike’s latest is the Metcon 4, and Reebok recently Nike Air Max 90 Femme Rose introduced its Nano 8, to name a couple standouts available now. But industry experts believe no label has figured out how to effectively cater to the cross-training enthusiast — or ever will be able to.

The reason, according to The NPD Group Inc.’s senior industry adviser for sports, Matt Powell, is an inability to make a complete multipurpose workout shoe.“Training is a multifaceted activity. To say, ‘This is the perfect shoe,’ doesn’t really work,” Powell said. “If you’re doing CrossFit, as an example, you need a very stable shoe because you’re doing a lot of lifting. [Nike Air Presto Mujer But] if you’re doing other kinds of training, you need shoes with cushioning or better grip or side-to-side motion. The idea that there’s a perfect training shoe is not achievable.”And Sam Poser, a Susquehanna Financial Group LLLP analyst, agreed. “A shoe that you Nike Air Max 360 Femme Hommewould do aerobics in, lateral motion, can’t be a running shoe. And if it has too much cushion, it can’t be a good training shoe,” Poser said. “It’s hard to have something that does both.”Despite the daunting task to make a shoe that can do it all, brands continue to build Nike Air Max 1 Damen models equipped to handle some, but not all, gym activities. Powell doesn’t believe the current cross-training model will work and that the answer to the multiuse issue plaguing the training marketplace isn’t readily available.Nike execs describe it as a revolution, pitching React as part of a wave of Nike Air Max 2017 Mujer new innovation that also includes VaporMax and ZoomX, the sneaker technology at the center of Breaking2, its sub-two-hour marathon attempt event in 2017.

Message he contract between Adidas and Louisville. It's clear th Répondre en citant
Thursday, April 17, 2014, Nike Air Max 1 Femme was a magnificent day for University of Louisville leadership and their partners at Adidas. Together, the school and the brand announced a five-year, $39 million extension of a contractual affiliation that would cement Louisville as a showcase “Adidas school.” The contract dictated that Cardinals teams, coaches, trainers, Nike Air Max 90 Homme staff and—most importantly—players would wear Adidas everything. Uniforms. Sneakers. Game-day warm-ups. Basketball shooting shirts. Football player capes. Headwear. Jackets. If it could be worn, it would say Adidas.The announcement fortified the perception that the Louisville athletic department had arrived. A year removed from the men’s basketball team winning the NCAA tournament, Louisville negotiated the second-largest university athletics branding deal the German-based apparel company had ever signed. (Only Nike Air Presto Femme Adidas’s deal with perennial powerhouse Michigan was worth more.)As part of the Louisville contract, Adidas agreed to enrich the school’s ledger and campus—there would be annual direct payments worth $1.5 million along with state-of-the-art equipment, video technology, coveted internships and numerous other benefits worth Nike Air Max 2017 Womens millions of dollars. Reputational gains by an Adidas association likely aided Louisville in critical other ways, including in recruiting both student-athletes and students and in raising money from alumni.Athletic director Tom Jurich, who came to the school in 1997, told The Courier Journal, “When I first got here, nobody wanted to try to brand us.”

But this celebrated transformation was offset by a less triumphant reality. For the previous four seasons, Louisville’s director of basketball operations, Andre McGee, had Nike Air Presto Damen hired strippers and prostitutes to engage in sexual acts with recruits visiting campus and then-current players. McGee’s famously micromanaging boss, head coach Rick Pitino, denied any knowledge of McGee’s enterprise, soon short-handed “Strippergate.”But the NCAA found Pitino and the program at fault. Louisville Asics Gel Lyte 5 Femme agreed to a “self-imposed” postseason ban in 2016. Then, in June 2017, the NCAA Committee on Infractions suspended Pitino for the first five ACC games as a response to his failure to take action in the escort scandal. In addition, the NCAA vacated up to 123 victories, placed the school on probation for four years and commanded Louisville to return its portion of conference revenue sharing.One might imagine that an established apparel company like Adidas would have revisited its decision to associate with Louisville. Nike Air Max 90 Womens “Strippergate” not only violated NCAA rules, but was, to traffic in understatement, deeply demeaning to women and deeply at odds with what has become this #MeToo cultural moment.Besides, Adidas had not exhibited much patience with others paid to wear the three stripes, who then encountered trouble. For instance, the Nike Air Max 95 Herren Schwarz company had dropped its shoe deal with musician Teyana Taylor in December 2013 after she’d cursed at Rihanna on Twitter.

And, six years prior, Adidas had cut ties with Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas after he pleaded guilty to carrying a gun without a license.SI has obtained a copy of the contract between Adidas and Louisville. It's clear that Adidas was armed with the authority to modify or outright end its relationship with Louisville. Under paragraph 3.B, Adidas could have reduced its base compensation to Louisville Nike Air Max 2017 Dam by one half if the university was put on NCAA probation, resulting in loss of TV appearances by the football or basketball teams:The base compensation ranged from roughly $1.5 to $1.6 million per year, meaning a reduction by one half would have translated into a reduction in payments by about $800,000 per year. Nike Air Huarache Damen In 2016, Louisville, in hopes of satisfying an outraged NCAA committee on infractions, banned itself from the ACC and NCAA tournaments. Sources familiar with the contractual relationship between Louisville and Adidas tell SI that Adidas may not attempt to interpret 3.B as justifying a contractual reduction.These Nike Air Vapormax Donne paragraphs make clear that Adidas possessed the right to terminate the Louisville contract if the NCAA punishes the school or the coach, or if the school or coach merely generated adverse publicity. Clearly, the NCAA’s Nike Air Force 1 Womens punishment of the school and Pitino—in addition to the ridicule and embarrassment caused by the sex scandal—would have empowered Adidas to cut ties with the embattled program. Was the termination clause not included in the contract for precisely this kind of embarrassing scandal?

Message current and future success. His signature shoe for m Répondre en citant
Our attention now turns Nike Air Max 97 Damen to Nike, the industry leader that most certainly had a bounce-back year. We’re aiming to highlight the ten best individual models, both new and retro, that made the biggest impacts over the last twelve months. This solid mix of hard-hitting retros and inspiring innovations is a major reason why the Swoosh had the best year out of any brand, so see our list for The 10 Best Nike Shoes of 2017 below and stay tuned for our list of best Nike Free Run 2.0 Damen adidas shoes of the year going live tomorrow.Errolson Hugh worked closely with Nike to bring some epic ACG flair to this all-seasons shoe. The tactical look – heavy on buckles, straps, and durable materials – was absolutely perfect for this model. While the steam has cooled off after the initial ACG versions, the KMTR displayed some creativity that recalls ACG’s earliest days.After a three-shoe lull in Nike Air Max Classic BW Donne LeBron James’ signature shoe line, Jason Petrie bounced back with the simplistic design based on Flyknit and a new Zoom Air unit. The PEs we’ve seen thus far, particularly the “EQUALITY” version, has caused some positive stir, while the upcoming collaboration with KITH will only further serve the off-the-court purpose.One of the most recognizable shoes in Nike history came back hard in 2017, with special iterations by Supreme and a Adidas Superstar Donne Rosa city-specific pack that highlighted NYC, Chicago, and Atlanta adding to the energy.Eliud Kipchoge set out on a mission to break the two-hour marathon barrier, and Nike was there the help him along the way.

The innovative footwear brand worked on a shoe dubbed the ZoomX VaporFly Elite that featured a carbon plate embedded in the foam sole for a springy effect. The heel of the sole tapered into a stylish Nike Free Run 2.0 Femme peak, but the functionality of it was to shave some time off a runner’s pace. The shoe was nearly unattainable as you had to participate in a run to even have a chance, but this model was responsible for the birth of the Zoom VaporFly 4% and Zoom Fly SP – two shoes that rank extremely high on several lists.Bruce Kilgore’s basketball shoe design from 1982 continues to be a mainstay in street footwear fashion, but Nike took it upon www.aubergedupionnier.fr itself to inject some energy into one of the most cherished shoes of all time. The AF100 collection, “The Ten”, and the customization studios around the globe made it as relevant as ever, which is critical in today’s landscape of lifestyle/retro footwear trends.It’s clear that the Beaverton brand has a lot invested in Kyrie Irving as one of the key figures of its current and future success. His signature shoe for most of 2017, the Kyrie 3, was among the Nike Air Vapormax Dam brand’s best-selling sneakers, while the barrage of Player Exclusives throughout the year have placed the shoe in the nightly headlines.The 30th Anniversary of the first-ever Air Max shoe did not go unnoticed. Nike brought back several OG colorways with special packaging while making it a highlight during Air Max Day with the return of the atmos collaboration and the debut of Nike Internationalist Femme the “Master” mash-up. Here’s to another 30 years.

Christian Tresser’s design from two decades ago came back with force in 2017 as several original colorways, modified updates, and attractive collaborations hit the market. Ask any Air Max fanatic what their favorite 97 was, and each of them might give you a different answer. Not enough love is shown to the two Swarovski Crystal versions.After debuting at the epic Innovation Summit in 2016, the Vapormax sneaker finally released to the public in 2017. A delight Nike Air Huarache Femme among runners and fashionistas alike, Nike’s most evolved form of Air highlighted a devotion to innovation while delivering something for casual wear. They’ve barely scratched the surface as Vapormax will set out to be its own category and will certainly be a mainstay of the brand for years to come.The birth of this shoe is Nike Air Max 1 Femme just one of many great outcomes of Nike’s BREAKING2 initiative. They’re incredibly comfortable and have a futuristic design that speaks to what NikeLab was intended to be. Only a handful of these were released, but the debut colorway – the white with the hit of orange on the midsole – was an absolute jaw-dropper. The sketches on the insole, which revealed the design process of the shoe, was an amazing touch.Aptly named the Classic, this simple white golf shoe draws styling cues from iconic Stan Smith tennis shoe. If you're going for a clean look this season, this is the perfect shoe.Trade Career Development: Through our Hinrich Global Trade Leader Development Program, we work with companies that drive international trade and universities to develop next-generation leadership talent for the export sector.

While Adidas’ Kanye era has brought the company once-unimaginable success, it also highlights the industry’s fickleness. “Absolutely, they had a business plan and marketing strategy. [But it] was a lot of luck as Adidas Superstar Donne Rosa well,” Wu said. Referring to the success of West’s concerts, he added, “You can’t have a marketing plan for that.”Horan posited that Adidas was the beneficiary of another stroke of fortune.Thanks to Nike Air Max 98 Femme the NBA All-Star Game, February is huge in the footwear industry. It Nike Air Pegasus 83 Damen is the month when companies release their biggest products. It’s also when income tax returns start coming in, fueling shoe purchases.But in late 2015, the government enacted the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act. While the law was aimed at combating tax fraud, it also delayed tax returns from 2016 for many low-income families. That meant less money for February shoe releases, which caused sales at places such as Foot Locker to tumble.“The late refunds crushed the whole industry,” Powell said. “There was no brand that benefited from that.”Horan, however, said Nike Air Huarache Damen he believes Adidas emerged from the carnage in a better position than its competitors. “When the tax checks didn’t show up, people in that market started saying: ‘I don’t need Nike. Maybe I could go with Nike Air Max Zero Womens the Kanye West [shoe],’ ” Horan said. “The whole narrative was www.jessicaadler.se changed at that point.”But there have been challenges, as well.In the fall, Jim Gatto, Adidas’ director of global sports marketing, and two associates were arrested for allegedly funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars to high school basketball recruits to get them to sign with preferred universities.

The case, which is based on federal wire-fraud charges and still is winding its way through the courts, could land Gatto in prison.The scandal may curtail the enormous influence sneaker companies have on college basketball. In the short term, though, there are few Nike Air Max 98 Femme signs that it is weighing on Adidas’ bottom line. “The early results don’t indicate that there’s been a negative impact,” Powell said.Wu added, “I honestly don’t think, unless it’s a much more severe controversy, that it’ll affect them that much.”Adidas officials Nike Air Max 90 Homme are staying relatively quiet on the topic. “We regret that it happened,” said King, noting that the company has made a few internal adjustments but can’t comment much on the incident. “We’re moving forward.”Beyond the NCAA scandal, experts said they will be watching whether Adidas can keep up. “Athletic footwear industry is pretty cyclical,” said Andy Annunziata, a researcher with SportsOneSource. “Trends change in a moment’s notice.”Wu said Nike has been on the upswing recently and has “more money than God” at its disposal. That has allowed it to sign LeBron James to a lifetime deal potentially worth more than $1 billion. About Adidas, Wu said its UltraBoost shoe “is sort of played out” but that the company has amassed a lot of talent, including a few designers who moved over from Nike.Following up on Boost, Adidas recently Adidas Superstar Womens released similar bounce technology. And it says it has more significant technology changes in the works. “We’re not here to finish second,” said Adidas’ head of U.S. team sports, Jeff Nike Air Max 97 Donne McGillis. He specifically avoided saying Nike but emphasized that “none of us play to lose.”

While Adidas’ U.S. market share has climbed to around 11 percent, it’s still far behind Nike’s roughly 37 percent share. And even King admitted that current growth levels are bound to slow somewhat. But the sneaker wars aren’t over – and may just be heating up.“We’re going to have let it play out and see what happens,” Wu said. “We’re going to see a good fight.”For February's NBA All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles, Adidas rented space at 747 Warehouse St. Over the course of two days, tens of thousands of people wandered through the venue - which had a Nike Air Presto Donne full-sized basketball court, a pop-up design studio, food stations and a "sneaker pickup" point. Sponsored stars also stopped by, including the Houston Rockets' James Harden and Kanye West, who Nike Air Vapormax Femme gave an impromptu concert."Fifteen or 20 hip-hop bands and athletes and basketball. . . . It was a celebration," said Mark King, president of Adidas North America. The company also released a dozen new shoe models - from all-white high-tops to orange runners.Adidas has cause to celebrate. Since King took over in 2014, the company has more than doubled its North American market share, and its stock has nearly quadrupled globally.

For February's NBA All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles, Adidas rented space at 747 Warehouse St. Over the course of two days, tens of thousands of people wandered through the venue - which had a full-sized basketball court, a pop-up design studio, food stations and a "sneaker pickup" point.

Since Mr King took over in 2014, the company has more than Adidas Superstar Herr doubled its North American market share, and its stock has nearly quadrupled globally. Even a pay-to-play college basketball scandal, which could send one of the company's former executives to prison, has done little to slow Adidas' momentum.On March 14, Adidas Nike Air Presto Damen released its 2017 annual report showing that North American revenue grew 27 per cent. That's compared with 3 per cent growth for Nike in 2017 and Adidas' 2013 increase of just 2 per cent. Industry experts said the company's sudden growth spurt is a story of technology, Nike Air Max Thea Dam celebrity and a healthy dose of luck.Starting in the 1920s, brothers Adolf and Rudolf Dassler made shoes together in the small German town of Herzogenaurach. In 1948, they had a falling out - with Rudolf starting what would become Puma and Adolf founding Adidas.

In 1954, the German national team won the World Cup Adidas ZX Flux Donne wearing Adidas cleats - complete with screw-in studs and a lightweight build - and the brand took off. The European company also saw some success in the American market. By 1984, Adidas was the front-runner to sign a highly touted NBA draft pick named Nike Air Max Classic BW Donne Michael Jordan.Instead, Nike swooped in and made a now-famous deal that propelled it to the top of what has since been dubbed the "sneaker wars." Adidas has been stuck in second (or worse) for decades.Part of Adidas' problem, industry analysts said, is that it was designing for a European audience, not an American one. "Sometimes the shoes that worked in Europe worked here," said Matt Powell of NPD Group, a market research company. "And sometimes they didn't." By the 2010s, as its market share dwindled and stock prices stalled, Adidas decided it was time for a change. Beginning in 2014, the company looked west.Aside from bringing in Mr King as the North American president, its gamble involved moving some 200 top employees from Germany to the United States - including lead designer Paul Gaudio - and investing millions in the American Nike Free Run 3.0 Damen market. The company also launched a shoe design hub in Brooklyn and a robotic "speedfactory" in Atlanta and has plans to expand its North American headquarters in Portland, Ore."They're still in growth mode," said Yu-Ming Wu, publisher of Sneaker News, a website that covers the shoe industry. "

Last I heard, they had employees sitting in hallways." The expansion Nike Air Pegasus 89 Femme Homme has taken many by surprise. When Adidas overtook Jordan Brand, a subsidiary of Nike, for second in sports footwear sales in the fall, Mr Powell tweeted, "This is an achievement I never thought I would see in my lifetime." Even Mr King said the magnitude was a bit unexpected. "I'm a dreamer. I had high hopes," he said. "(But) I didn't know all this was going to happen." That growth can be linked in part to Adidas' introduction of its Boost midsole technology in 2013. Nike Air Max 2017 Femme Designed in conjunction with German chemical company BASF, Boost is squishy foam cushioning that is layered into the shoe to increase comfort and energy transfer. Boost has since been integrated across Adidas' products, from lifestyle to running shoes. John Horan, founder of Sporting Goods Intelligence, an industry analysis firm, calls the technology "comfortable as hell." But at first, sales were sluggish."Boost checks the boxes from an innovation standpoint," Mr Nike Free 5.0 Femme Gaudio said. "You just need to let (consumers) know it's out there and why they should care." To do that, Adidas took out its checkbook and went looking for talent.Since 2014, Adidas has quadrupled its presence among Major League Baseball players (signing Xander Bogaerts of the Boston Red Sox, among others) and doubled its NFL roster (King said two-time league MVP Aaron Nike Air Max 90 Dam Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers, a longtime friend, actually asked to join Adidas). "I want that deal."

Message Do what you like. But when rumors emerged Répondre en citant
Adidas' sustainable footwear initiative is growing legs.The company revealed in March that is has Adidas ZX 750 Mujer made and sold more than one million pairs of its shoes made from ocean plastic. These shoes use a yarn developed by Parley that turns the ocean plastic into a polymer that can used to construct knitted footwear.Looking at the shoes, they are nearly indistinguishable from a Nike Roshe Run Damen normal pair of Adidas shoes, but the hidden benefits of how they're made could have lasting implications on the future of footwear.One million shoes is obviously not very many compared to the millions and millions the company sells on a yearly basis, and the company has been Nike Free 5.0 Femme selling the Parley partnership shoes for almost two years now. Still, one million is not a small number, and indicates that the demand is material.Adidas started its partnership with Parley in 2016 with a limited run, but drastically doubled down on it in 2017 with a full collection.Each Nike Free Run 2.0 Damen shoe uses an average of 11 plastic bottles per pair and incorporates recycled plastic into the shoe's laces, heel webbing, heel lining, and sock liner covers.Adidas isn't the only one that is doubling down on sustainability. The comfort-focused Allbirds, known for their sneakers made from wool, just released a shoe made from eucalyptus tree fiber. The company boasts that this new material is a rethinking of what material can be made from shoes, and is much more sustainable than traditional methods.Both of Allbirds collections, in fact, are made from Nike Air Max Zero Damen predominantly naturally occurring materials. Allbirds' has seen some success too, and revealed that they've sold one million pairs so far of their wool shoes.

Much of its collections are leather or petroleum based-knits, but a new shoe material it developed recycled leather fiber.Called Adidas NMD Womens Flyleather, it bonds together left over pieces of hide forming a new material. This reduces waste in Nike's own processes, and makes it creating its traditional leather product more sustainable as well.Nike says it's the company's "lowest carbon-footprint leather material ever," but still feels like perfect premium leather.Sustainable footwear has many obvious benefits. It's a recycling initiative which the company can use to boast about its green eco-friendly efforts, as well as a way to cut down waste.But it's also a big bet that this is how Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 Femme all companies will be making shoes in the future when the traditional petroleum-heavy methods become far too costly. It's a glimpse at a sustainable future, where sneakers made from ocean plastic won't just be limited to special collections.I’ve only seen Drake wear Adidas sneakers Nike Air Max 90 Donne one time, and it was part of his costume for a minor role in Anchor Man 2: The Legend Continues. I’m not the person to say that you need to wear a certain brand to be cool. Do what you like. But when rumors emerged that Drake was allegedly leaving Jordan Brand to jump ship to Adidas, I had my concerns.I’ve been a critic of what Drake’s done with Jordan Brand. The deal has been complicated, the sneakers have taken forever to release, and they all look like OVO merch, rather than creative projects that reflect the personality of the biggest rapper in Nike Cortez Femme the world right now.

All of this matters because word on the street is that Drake, allegedly, is unhappy with his Jordan deal and looking to switch brand allegiances and go to Adidas, which is already home to Kanye West and Pharrell.This may seem like a good idea from the outside, Nike Air Max 97 Femme but how is Drake supposed to develop more of his own sneaker identity on a brand where he’s just another face in the crowd? He also doesn’t have an organic story to tell through Adidas product and that’s an issue.Drake himself has slightly hinted at the prospect of himself signing to Adidas by wearing a pair of Yeezy boots, although they're independently made by Kanye West and not Adidas. He's even gone as far in the past to photoshop an Adidas logo off a Juventus shirt he was wearing.Do I expect celebrities who get signed to Adidas to know the difference Nike Air Force 1 Damen between a Tobacco and a Spezial Handball, or know what the original purpose of Dellinger Web technology was? No. It would be pretty fucking cool if they did. But there is some sort of expectation that pitchmen are going to be authentic. They should be someone who would be Adidas NMD Mujer wearing the product regardless whether money was involved, or someone who wasn’t just leveraging the brand to meet their own end goal (which it appears Drake is doing if he leaves Jordan).
