good point MJ, I guess I should be quiet about my ambitions. The thing with Nike, is I know they are working on new stuff, which is why I hate them in so many ways. To compare to wrestling, which I hate to do but I will, the WCW was top dog for a while, and what did they do? Get lazy. Now the WWF is top dog, and their programming has gone down in quality. Nike seems to be an exception, they are the top dog, but aren't slowing down, its as if they simply want to not only run the table, but own the table! Their first asset is Eric Avar, whom is the greatest shoe designer ever to live, his ideas are so revolutionary, it should be illegal. Thats why I respect Nike, they don't sit at the top basking in glory, they keep on finding new products and technologies.
AirDong - can't wait to see the pics, I myself have drawn about 30-40 shoes, half nike and half reebok.
And about that poll on brand loyalty, it was on the same article I read the poll, but it was not brand loyalty, the poll was titled differently. Once again, I only bring it up just to show that they are obviously not as popular as nike, but they have gained popularity from 3 years ago and are leaps ahead from where they were 5 years ago...
