Nike Air Force One


Nike Air Force One is a leading brand name for a casual shoe product line. Traditionally, most people would have associated Nike with sports shoes. But it appears that the new lifestyles of the new generation demands a completely new line of shoes. So what is this new lifestyle that we are talking about?

There is a rising trend of our teens participating in multiple sports. They not only participate in sports and a history of nike. They wear the same apparel to school, casual outings, etc. So traditional sports shoes become problematic – they are only meant for one single sport, and nothing else. This is good if the individual is engaging in a specialized sport, and needs specialized shoes and clothing. But the majority of the teens don’t engage in such activities most of the time. They engage in such sports only a few hours at most each day. After that, they are off to another activity.

The solution to this problem is a simple one. Design a multi-purpose shoe that a teen can wear for various

Ways to Save on Running Gear

Running shouldn’t cost a fortune, yet everywhere we look there’s a pricey accessory guaranteed to make your run easier. While some things such as Nikes might be considered a necessity, often it’s all about the brand, style, or latest fashion. Here are some tips to keep your running expenses at a minimum and still have a healthy, safe run:

Make a list of your bare necessities. For example, good shoes are a must if you want to avoid injuries and make the best time, but fashion trends such as yoga pants are a want, not a need. Keep in mind that if you’re serious about running your comfort zone won’t change but the fashions will, so resist buying clothes for looks instead of practicality.

Don’t impulse buy. If you fall in love with the latest electronic accessory wait a few days or weeks before you purchase and decide if you really want it and if you’ll use it regularly. When you’re ready to buy first check a site such as Groupon to get additional discounts and coupons from retailers such as PacSun to lower your cost before

A Scope Definitely Improves Accuracy

I like to shoot targets and varmints in my backyard. To make it more challenging I use an air rifle instead of an actual rifle. I recently investigated air rifle scopes as a way to improve my aim. Largely it is due to my age and my declining eyesight. I noticed I wasn’t hitting my targets as well, and trying to hit a squirrel or a praire dog was next to impossible! They’re quick little critters and you really need to steady your aim to hit one. Before anyone makes noises about shooting these creatures, down here in Texas they are pests.

If you don’t take these animals down, they cause all sorts of damage to your property and will eventually ruin a lawn. Everyone down here hunts these critters. For the last six months I wasn’t hitting any of them, so you can imagine what my property started to look like. Continue reading

A History of Nike

For over fifty years, Nike has been one of the best-known and most respected footwear companies of all time, specializing in sports and running shoes. But, like most companies, they started small.

In 1964, Nike was founded by track-and-field athlete Phillip Knight, looking for a way to earn a living. The business, originally known as Blue Ribbon Sports, got their start selling Tiger running shoes, imported from the Onitsuka company in Japan. They made most of their sales out of their car after track meets. He was soon joined in this venture by his track coach, Bill Bowerman, who was looking for higher quality track shoes for his athletes.

The Tigers sold quickly, and the company burgeoned, soon hiring full-time employees and opening their first location. By 1971, Blue Ribbon Sports had made over a million dollars, and was ready to move out on its own. Their first original shoe was dubbed the Nike, named after the Greek goddess of victory. It was also the first to feature Nike’s famous trademark “swoosh,” designed by Carolyn Davidson. Interestingly enough, Knight didn’t originally care for the symbol, saying, “I don’t love it,

Best Rated Running Shoes For Women

The Best Rated Shoes for Women that Run Short Distances

Winner: Nike

Running short distances or sprinting has many requirements from a sports shoe, but none is more important than it being lightweight and this is because heavier shoes with huge amounts of padding are unnecessary for short distances. Heavy padding often makes a running shoe rigid and weighty which can easily take a slight edge off your performance. This can sometimes makes all of the difference when you are only running a short distance.

With Nike being one of the world’s biggest sportswear company means they invest huge sums of money into making the lightest and most performance enhancing running shoes on the market. One of their notable technologies, Flywire has not only made Nike women’s running shoes one of the very lightest shoes around, but it has also made them one of the few most durable shoes available on the market .

Choosing Running Gear


Choosing suitable running shoes is the most critical task before embarking on your running journey. When I first started running, after overcoming the unavoidable stitches in the first few weeks, I began feeling dull pain at the front of the lower leg. My personal trainer told me I had shin splint and advised me to see a physiotherapist who told me I needed custom made orthotics in my shoes because I have flat feet. He explained that because I am flat-footed, I most likely over-pronate, meaning my feet roll inward toward the center of the body when I run.  Therefore I also need to buy running shoes that will help maintain stability, that means I should look for words such as ‘solidity control’ or ‘action control’ in the shoes features. I also was told certain brands such as Brooks or Asics were performing better than others. Personally I have had Brooks shoes for the last few years and I have never had shin splint ever since.

As for people with high-arched feet, they most likely under-pronate, or supinate meaning their feet will tend to roll outwards away from the

Nike’s Cutting Edge Approach To Marketing

Nike’s new approach to their global marketing has had their competitors and fans alike wondering whether a new era in massive-brand marketing has come about. If so; is it working?

Nike is one of the few major sports labels that has truly embraced the digital generation. They recently changed their core target market to seventeen-year-olds, citing that the age group spends 20% more on shoes than their older counterparts. This shift in perspective has brought about an entirely new approach to their communication with their fans because marketing nowadays is all about communication. As Mark Parker (Nike CEO) said, “Connecting today is a dialogue.”

Nike launched the Fuelband, a wristband that enables sports-lovers to track their progress through an interactive website. Not only did the Fuelband receive massive success but it also spawned an online community that revolved around Nike bringing sports into people’s everyday lives. Another positive (and rather sneaky) benefit to the Fuelband online community is that it acts as a constant marketing survey for Nike products and Nike’s market, regularly letting Nike know what people like about what they sell and which sports are most popular.

The sensor and receiver can give you real-time performance feedback. You’ll get this information right on your iPod screen. And, as mentioned above, you can load it to your computer as well.

Why American Designers Simply Cannot Get It Right

It happened to me again the other day and my frustration continues to grow.

Imagine a man who innocently walks in a sporting goods store, or perhaps even in a department store, with the sole intention of replacing his running suit which he has worn to shreds, and his wife threatens to throw out when he is not looking.

It is a given that male pride tells him he can find the exact running suit he needs to fit his particular needs without his wife accompanying him.

He edges up to a row of running suits and first looks at material and color. He needs to know if he wants lining in his running suit for colder winter weather or something lighter for hot summer weather.

Color is also important. Being a Michigan State University graduate I understand that a green and white running suit could make an important statement about me as opposed to a maize and blue number that screams the University of Michigan.

One must also be careful about the color green. A light green simply will not

A Company Vision That is Hard to Beat

Few sports equipment manufacturers have created more trends than Nike. Established in 1964 as Blue Ribbon Sports, this public traded Fortune 500 Company became Nike, Inc in 1978. The name is from the Greek goddess of victory which is an apt trademark for a company that has won over the sports public and professionals as Nike has.

By sponsoring high profile athletes and sports teams, Nike has made its “Just do it” slogan a term recognized by sports enthusiasts around the world. The simple Swoosh logo was introduced with the first Nike running shoes in 1972 and is used to this day. For Nike products, the name isn’t necessary as the simple Swoosh clearly states “this is a Nike product”.

The growth of this powerful company has been due to the expansion into various sports in a targeted and effective way. By marketing its products under its own brand name and also marketing through subsidiary companies, the reach of Nike extends worldwide from its US base in Oregon.

The marketing strategy used by Nike positions the brand products as premium quality with superior design. Though once associated

Considerations When Choosing The Perfect Running Shoes

Having a good pair of running shoes is an investment. It is a treasure that will take you to miles and miles of running. You will never regret why you have bought yourself a branded pair of running shoes. It is best that you invest on an expensive one rather than to settle in something that is less. If you buy something that is cheap, the chances of buying a new pair of running shoes might happen every once in a while whereas if you buy a high grade and branded type of running shoes, it may last for a longer period of time.

If you are an athlete, it is always required that you wear the right and proper sports apparel in your chosen sport. Wearing the right apparel keeps you comfortable, makes you move freely and ensures a safe and fun sporting activity. For almost any type of sport, there are specific apparels that an athlete needs to wear. You cannot just wear boxer shorts while running, right? And neither will you be allowed to just wear sneakers while playing golf. Seriously, you need to be properly groomed and show formality
