Nike just got great news from an unlikely source (11th Aug 17 at 9:03am UTC)Quote Reply


Best nike air max 90 mens sale known for his Mobot celebratory hand gesture after sweeping all before him on the track Nike delves behind the scenes to document the sweat and sacrifice born of the grueling training regimen necessary to get Farah over the line. Set against a backdrop of Farah’s London upbringing the film illustrates the grit and determination which belie Farah’s smiley demeanour with spoken word artist George the Poet offering an accompanying audio tribute. British Olympic champion Mo Farah just won another gold in the 10, 000 meters at the World Athletics Championships in London, so Nike is honoring him in a spot that reveals the intense, gritty journey behind the athlete known for his joyous beaming smile. The spot, out of Wieden & Kennedy London, shows that behind his famous grin and "Mobot" action on the track is an unseen regime of hard graft. London-born spoken word artist George the Poet provides moving verse: "You smiled a smile that made it look easy. " We then see Farah training to the point of collapse, gritting his teeth in ice baths, bleeding and pounding through streets, treadmills and in swimming pools. It concludes with him smiling widely as he lies back on the track after a victory. Ever since the NBA announced its partnership with Nike, basketball universe has become hyped for the new jerseys. Who can blame them? We’ve seen USA’s jerseys in the Olympics. College basketball teams sponsored by Nike have some of the coolest uniforms in the cheap nike free 5.0 2015 country (peep Oregon, Duke and Kentucky). As the NBA has released a preview of some of the ‘Icon’ and ‘Association’ jerseys – the traditional ‘home’ and ‘away’ jerseys – some have impressed, and some are meh. The Memphis Grizzlies have revealed its latest jerseys. The Jordan Brand is almost completely dedicated to basketball, though it's recently been making inroads in football to hedge against downturns and its current oversupply problems. Nike basketball and Jordan combined sold $4. 3 billion worth of product last quarter in wholesale alone. Basketball has struggled recently, as current trends aren't favorable to its high-top designs. They don't fit with the slim athleisure styles that are now so dominant.

Starting cheap nike air max 2017 this season, all teams are permitted but not required to wear a corporate advertising patch. So far 12 of the league's 30 teams have revealed plans to go ahead with a patch (including one, the Bucks, who announced their patch partnership with Harley-Davidson on Thursday), though others could follow before the start of the season or even after the season has begun. For far too long, the trainer community has been dominated by men – think of sneakerheads and chances are you'll picture a hipster male forever on a quest for the freshest kicks. Thankfully, there's an inspiring network of influential women, the International Girl Crew, challenging that notion, with a covetable new range of Nike Cortez Classics that reflects their shared passion for travel, culture and female empowerment. Comprising powerful women each owning different fields, from nail art to filmmaking, the International Girl Crew includes WAH Nails founder Sharmadean Reid, model and muse Paloma Elsesser, filmmaker Grace Ladoja, stylist Camille Garmendia, nail artist Madeline Poole, and writer Phoebe Lovatt. In San Pedro Sula, Honduras, members of the SITRASTAR union led a demonstration outside their factory and the neighboring Nike store. According to cheap nike free 5.0 2015 union leader Waldin Reyes, 350 union members had lost their jobs the month before when Nike pulled production from their factory. Reyes led chants of, “If there is no peace for us, let there be no peace for them. ”In the U. S.,students channeled that spirit as they demonstrated at Nike stores in Boston, San Francisco, New York, Portland, Houston, Chicago, and more. Actions included store blockades, the classic “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Nike” action, where students strip to their underwear, and spirited pickets. Student pressure had already led Rutgers University to end its $150 million sponsorship deal a few months earlier. Then in March of this year, the entire University of California system strengthened its policy so that all licensees were required to give the kind of unfettered access to monitors that Nike was denying.
