Nike's Jason Collins Sponsorship Is Exactly What Nike Wanted

Nike's Jason Collins Sponsorship Is Exactly What Nike Wanted

Commented Apr 30, 2013 at 10:01:06 in Business

“Great NIKE is happy. Jason is happy. Other gays are happy. Now let the rest of those who make NIKE so much money ,its customer base ,be happy! How about getting out of third world nations making a sneaker that costs so little to produce and they charge so much for to the public. How about getting back to the roots that produced this company ,the US . Sure the profit margin isn't that great but Ive seen the owners house in Oregon ,its big,beautiful and done!So how about it NIKE ? Bring back the jobs here and make others good jobs to have . Isn't time to give back to those who made you so much?”

“Agree that it sounds good, but from experience with Nike, this was done to make money and the "Jason Collins shoes" will come at a price. When sales start to drop, they will be off to the next money cow, its a business decision above all else. There is a "target" market that will buy a "diversity shoe" so they can be seen as supporting diversity but they only need so many sneakers, it peaks and Nike will have another marketing program...”
