Phil Knight To Step Down As Nike Chairman

Phil-Knight

 

according to ESPN

Nike chairman Phil Knight, who turned a business selling shoes out of the back of his car into the world’s most valuable sports brand, has announced plans to step down as company chairman.

Knight, 77, was a middle-distance runner in college who began the company in a handshake deal with Oregon coach Bob Bowerman in 1964, with each putting up $500. With shrewd marketing campaigns built around celebrity endorsers like Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods, he made the swoosh one of the most recognizable logos around the globe.

That phenomenal growth also landed Knight on Forbes magazine’s list of 50 richest people in the world, with a net worth estimated at $24 billion.

adidas + Juventus Unveil Home and Away Kits for the 15/16 Season

Juventus_Home_4Player_2x1_PR

Juventus will wear adidas from today until 2021. The start of this partnership provides an opportunity to unveil home and away kits for the next season. This launch is just the first chapter in the history of adidas and Juventus.

Home jersey design

Loyal to tradition, the new home kit displays the iconic black and white jersey, white shorts and white socks. The new jersey features the black and white striped design recalling the classic Juventus style. The stripes are not outlined but they intersect, creating integration between the white and the black. The black hem at the bottom of the jersey displays a tonal graphic print featuring the J letter, the club symbol, and some details evoking the unique exterior design of the Juventus Stadium. The three adidas black stripes are placed on white inserts on the sleeves to underline the bond with the brand.

The V-shaped neckline is white, the adidas logo is black with white outline. The shorts are white with three black stripes. The Juventus crest is on the front and the black adidas logo on the back. The socks are white with three black stripes.

The names and the numbers of the players will be in black.

Away jersey design

The away kit combines a classic back to the roots design with a touch of innovation. Since 1897, the year of the club foundation, until 1903 the Juventus players have worn pink jerseys and black shorts creating a kit that has become iconic and an integral part of the club’s history. The adidas designers have thus reinterpreted tradition by combining the pale pink color of the historic club jersey with brighter pink applications on the sleeves and on the front in-between the white stripes to create perfect mix of authenticity and modernity.

As with the home jersey, the hem displays an application, white in this case, on which the J letter and references to the exterior design of the Juventus Stadium are featured, tone-on-tone. The round neck collar is black as well the logo and the adidas three stripes. The shorts are black with the three stripes and the adidas logo on the back is light pink. The Juventus crest is on the front. The socks are pale pink with bright pink and white inserts recalling the stripes on the central panel on the chest. The names and the numbers of the players will be in black.

The new Authentic jerseys will allow players to be faster and more comfortable on the field. They are made of a woven lightweight fabric which improves breathability and provides greater freedom of movement and comfort without sacrificing flexibility and resilience.

The Replica jerseys, on the other hand, feature the Climacool ventilation technology designed to help keep your body cool and dry through holes, breathable materials, fabrics and special stitchings.

“For the first time ever Juventus will wear the 3-stripes. We are proud of the partnership signed between the club and current Italian league champions, and at the same time we’re pleased to unveil the home and away kits for the 2015/16 season to all the fans.” said Andreas Gellner, Managing Director adidas South Europe. “The best way to start this new adventure is to celebrate the triumphs achieved by the “bianconeri” in recent years. We did this by embedding in the design the three gold stars embroidered on the club’s crest, inspired by the place that sums up all these achievements: the Juventus Stadium.”

“We’re very proud to work alongside a partner like adidas in such a significant period in the club’s history,” said Francesco Calvo, Juventus’ Chief Revenue Officer. “In our bid to consolidate our position at the summit of world soccer, as of today we can count on another strong ally who firmly believes in us and also shares our key values such as tradition, internationalization, innovation, the pursuit of excellence, and leadership.

We see adidas as a crucial part of our growth strategy and we will make all of our assets available to them in order to help the brand extend even further in the global soccer landscape. We are convinced that the next six years of this agreement will be the start of a lasting partnership, full of new and exciting challenges.”

Our Way or No Way – #BeTheDifference

The kit launch is tied to the “Our Way or No Way” global communication campaign which will feature some Juventus players and be marketed mainly through digital channels.

The “Our Way or No Way” concept is part of the #BeTheDifference campaign with which adidas announced the Soccer Revolution by introducing a new way of seeing soccer: soccer matches are decided on the finest of margins. A single piece of skill or a moment of madness can lead either to victory or to defeat. It’s all up to those who are able to make a difference on the pitch. And that’s the message adidas is keen to convey by identifying two kinds of players in modern soccer: those who create chaos and those who control the game. The game changers and the playmakers who set their rules on the field. The bianconeri’s leitmotiv perfectly fits this scenario as it shows how the Juventus style differs from the others by being based on pragmatism which is the underlying foundation of their achievements. It says: “Juve’s game is plain and simple. It’s got to be black and white. That’s their way. Their focus. Anything outside of their game is not tolerated. All that hype in soccer, all that color, even the smallest dot of it, is removed. It’s not important. It doesn’t matter. Only soccer matters.”

The home and away kits will be available to buy from today at adidas.com.

GOAT App Launches to Make Multibillion Dollar Sneaker Resale Market Safe

GOAT sneaker market photo

Launching today, GOAT (https://airgoat.com/) offers a new iOS app (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/goat­the­sneaker­market/id966758561) for buying and selling sneakers.

It all began last November when GOAT co­founder Daishin was reminiscing about his first pair of Jordans he had back when he was 10 and played organized basketball. They were the OG Air Jordan 5 Grapes and he was eager to get them again some 20 years later. Ecstatic to receive them in the mail, he opened the box, unwrapped the sneakers and inhaled the scent

that only comes from fresh kicks. But there was something wrong: The Nike Air logo on the heel, the air bubble and box all seemed a bit off. He tried them on and then it hit him – they were fakes.

After going back and forth with the seller for over two weeks, a resolution was finally made, but the lengthy, drawn out process was one that he never wanted to face again – the trust was lost. Determined to ease the sneaker buying experience on the secondary market, he and his co­founder, Eddy, along with their team set out to create GOAT, the most trusted mobile marketplace for buying and selling sneakers.

“We know the pain that comes with paying a lot for sneakers only to find out later that they aren’t even real,” said Eddy. “It happens all the time on eBay and even on social networks like Instagram. That’s why we created GOAT. Now, you can buy and sell with confidence because we protect you.”

At GOAT, specialists authenticate every sneaker sold for over $300, verifying everything fromthe stitching to logo, texture to color, and so much more. And for a limited time, GOAT is offering this service for all sneakers purchased, regardless of price. Unlike eBay, GOAT also offers a Buyer Protection Guarantee that allows buyers to return sneakers they find to be fake or falsely advertised without having to deal with the sellers at all.

For those looking to purchase sneakers, they can browse a database of over 15,000 products – currently one of the largest of its kind – detailing the sneaker’s image, SKU number and colorway. If the sneakers are listed, you can purchase them directly from the seller, but if they aren’t, you can set alerts to be notified as soon as they’re available in the sizes you’re looking for.

Those looking to sell can simply search for the sneaker by SKU, name or nickname, enter the condition, price and upload seven required photos of various angles from the app’s camera. All photos are verified and timestamped, so buyers know exactly what they’re purchasing. To help sellers, the app also gives high and low pricing data for their sneakers, which is pulled from online sales daily. Most importantly, sellers can earn more money through GOAT with the lowest commissions in the industry at 9.5%, compared to veterans eBay and PayPal at 13%, and consignment shop Flight Club at 20%.

“It’s an exciting space to be in. The sneaker community is strong, passionate and growing, but has been left using archaic marketplaces that charge high fees and are unsafe,” said Eddy. “We aim to change things with GOAT by offering better tools, a safer community and lower commissions.”

Although the GOAT app is currently limited to iOS, purchases can still be made on the web. The company plans to release their Android app soon.
