Sneakerheads looking for a new pair of sneakers to add to their collection will have the opportunity to bid on a rare pair of Nikes sneakers produced in 1981.

Phil Knight, co-founder of Nike created the classic blue and white sneaker to gain the upper hand in a feud with the US government when the famous sneaker company started up between the 1970s and 1980s.

The sneaker company created what was described as a fake competing brand called “The single line”, a counterfeit version of the Nike Oceania running shoes from the 1970s and 1980s.

Nike quietly manufactured the counterfeit shoes. The “single line” the kicks were released in limited quantity and lacked Nike branding or signature swoosh logos.

According to Heritage Auctions, Nike has been embroiled in a long pricing battle with the US government’s customs and treasury departments nearly bankrupting the sneaker titan.

The government agency used a Great Depression-era tariff called the American Selling Price of 1922 (ASP) to sue Nike by billing the company for $25 million.

This invoice was sent to Nike as retroactive payment for shoes imported from international factories years earlier that the shoe company could not afford to pay. According to ASP tariff law, fake Nike sneakers had to be “like or similar” to real Nike shoes.

According to Heritage auctionsKnight said Nike sold “a few thousand pairs” of One Line shoes while successfully getting the government to lower its tariff bill to $9 million, which Nike could afford by 1980. The company’s revenue company at the time soared to $140 million a year.

Over the years, Knight has described the ordeal with the government over the sneakers as a “life or death” battle for his burgeoning Nike brand, according to Heritage Auctions.

Knight chronicled the battle with the government in his autobiography “Shoe Dog.” In an excerpt from the book, Knight wrote, “We launched a new shoe, a nylon upper running shoe, and called it One Line,” Knight writes in his book. “It was a counterfeit, very cheap, with a simple logo… From now on, customs officials should use this ‘competitor’ shoe as a new reference point to decide our import duties.”

Nike has always turned heads for its iconic shoes, but never like this before. In an ingenious partnership between Nike Grind (Nike’s global sustainability program) and Kirei (maker of innovative and eco-friendly materials for interiors), product designer for both companies Michael DiTullo has created an acoustic solution called the Air deflector which is made from Nike manufacturing scraps and end-of-life shoes.

Nike x Kirei Acoustic Wind Deflector

The air deflector hangs vertically from the ceiling to help dampen noise and break up sound reverberation, perfect for public spaces like offices, hotels, and classrooms. The exterior of the sleek, curved baffle is Kirei’s EchoPanel®, a felt-like material made from 100% PET plastic containing up to 60% post-consumer content. The soft interior down, visible through a window inspired by the air bubble windows of Nike shoes, is a mix of recycled materials from scraps and discarded shoes. The window itself is also eco-friendly, made with Class A fire rated PETG (a type of polyester resin) and is GREENGUARD certified.

The all-new short, featuring OSCAR and GRAMMY award-winning artists Billie Eilish and FINNEAS, will premiere Friday, April 22, exclusively on Disney+.

As a sneakerhead, you’ve probably wondered what the differences are between the Air Force 1 and the Air Max 90.

Both silhouettes are some of Nike’s most beloved sneakers, which is why they’re still made today, as evidenced by the upcoming Air Max 90 Terrascape and the Billie Eilish x Air Force 1 collaboration.

To help you understand how these two Nike sneakers revolutionized the sneaker game, we’ve put together this guide detailing their history, while also comparing some of the similarities and differences between them.

We’ve also given our opinion on what we think you should; However, before we dive into that, let’s start by discussing how these two popular sneakers came to be…

Air Force 1 vs. Air Max 90 – History

Before becoming one of the most popular lifestyle sneakers on the market, the Air Force 1 was originally designed to be the ultimate basketball shoe.

Conceived by Bruce Kilgore in 1982, Nike actually took six of its most popular NBA players to launch the Air Force 1 campaign in 1983, targeting high-top sneakers towards a basketball audience.

Despite the promotion, Nike discontinued the Air Force 1 model in 1984.

Nike’s reasons for doing this are unclear, but fans of the silhouette continued to customize their own pairs to compensate for the lack of new designs, showing that there was still demand for the silhouette.

Nike recognized this and brought back the Air Force 1 in 1986, focusing more on everyday wear than basketball, leading to countless timeless designs such as the hugely popular Air Force 1 all white.

In contrast, the Air Max 90 didn’t debut until 1990, unsurprisingly.

It essentially became Nike’s flagship sneaker, taking over from the Air Max 1 that arrived a few years earlier in 1987.

The silhouette was designed by Tinker Hatfield, one of Jordan’s leading designers, credited with some of the best Jordan 3 colorways.

His initial imagination morphed into the original “Infrared” colorway, a hugely popular and highly sought after design to this day.

This color blocking set the pattern for future Air Max 90 releases that have since garnered huge success.

Air Force 1 vs Air Max 90 – Price

With history covered, you might be inclined to pick up a pair for yourself. If this is true, then you will definitely be intrigued by the price difference between the two.

Comparatively speaking, the Air Force 1s seem to be the slightly cheaper sneakers on average. This is attested by triple black Air Force 1 low-tops that cost less than a comparable pair of air max 90 black.

The reason behind this may, in part, be due to the technology included in a pair of Air Max 90s. It could also be due to the growing popularity of the model and the fact that it is perhaps a little less accessible.

Air Force 1 vs. Air Max 90 – Design

There is a major and very distinct difference between the two designs. The Air Max 90 features exposed Nike Air technology in the midsole, unlike the Air Force 1s.

Credit: The Only Supplier

That said, both sneakers feature Nike Air units, which means they are well cushioned and should be very comfortable to wear for everyday use.

Another difference is that Air Force 1s are usually leather. In contrast, the Air Max 90s tend to use a range of materials such as canvas, suede, and knit.

Overall, we’d say the Air Force 1s have a rounder and slightly bulkier shape than the Air Max 90s; however, the fewer panels make for a simpler, cleaner look in our opinion.

Which should you buy?

Which two sneakers you should buy will ultimately come down to personal preference.

That said, we’d say there may be a wider selection of Air Force 1s out there, which means there’s a better chance that there’s an Air Force 1 style to suit everyone.

The price differences between the two should also be kept in mind, giving the Air Force 1s a slight advantage in this area.

Ultimately, the choice is yours though. If you’re really unsure, we recommend finding both pairs in a store and trying them on to see which of the two suits you best.

Some things never change.

Gen Z teenagers who don’t have the responsibilities they’ll inherit in the years to come spend their money like… teenagers without responsibilities.

Members of Generation Z were born after 1996, which means that the oldest members of this generation are around 25 years old.

Gen Z makes up just over 20% of the US population, according to Statista.

Marketers have been targeting teenagers for generations because the money kids have to spend has increased over the decades.

Tiger Woods is changing shoes at this year’s Masters.

Welcome to Play Smart, a game improvement column published every Monday, Wednesday and Friday by Game Improvement Editor Luke Kerr-Dineen (who you can follow on Twitter here).

AUGUSTA, Ga. — It’s hard to imagine how the sight of Tiger Woods wandering the fairways of Augusta National, less than 14 months after a car accident that nearly led to his right leg being amputated, could become more surprising.

And yet, as he often does, he found a way, thanks to his golf shoes.

Tiger Woods, the man who has been the face of golf brand Nike since joining the Tour, traveled to Augusta National on Sunday wear FootJoy golf shoes. Was it a mistake? Some wondered. Did he forget his shoes? Then on Monday, he donned a white pair. Tuesday too.

So what’s going on here?

Tiger is due to speak to the media on Tuesday and could talk about it, but it’s hard to see how a notoriously reserved superstar will go into depth on a sensitive topic regarding one of his sponsors. But taking a broader view after speaking with several coaches on the Tour: Golf shoe design can have a noticeable effect on how your body moves as you swing and could potentially play a role in Tiger’s decision. here.

Avid runners think about it a lot, but many modern sneaker-style shoes that have made their way into golf tend to have more padding under the heel of the shoes – it is the “fall” of the shoe. This tends to make them comfortable, but it can often also tilt your foot slightly, which shifts your weight more onto your toes when standing.

On the left, Tiger Woods and his shoes in 1997; right, in 2018.

When golfers start out with too much weight on their toes, they can often struggle to achieve a full hip rotation deep in their right hip on the backswing, and a corresponding rotation in their left hip along the way.

Like everything, different shoe designs are better or worse for different people. But the theory goes that golfers who struggle with lower body mobility could potentially benefit from reducing their shoe’s “drop”, which actually means your foot is flatter on the ground. Kind of like rocking barefoot.

Getty Images

The design of your shoes can also affect how you move: Studies have shown that people will respond to the extra padding under their heel by landing more on their heel when walking and running – and there’s evidence to suggest this can increase the stiffness in your legs.

Of course, there could be something else going on here with Tiger in particular, so I’m not trying to jump to any drastic conclusions on that front. Simply pointing out that golf shoes have a subtle, yet real, effect on your golf swing. So pay attention to them and find the best ones for you.

There’s only one explanation for Tiger Woods walking around Augusta National in non-Nike shoes: he’s unhappy with the Swoosh.

The golf world was in turmoil Sunday and again Monday when Woods showed up wearing a pair of black FootJoy spikes.

The most common speculation? He needed something more comfortable after his accident.

But after reporting on sports business for 22 years, this doesn’t pass my sniff test.

If Tiger needed a special orthotic to make his foot feel differently in the shoe, Nike would have it. If Tiger liked another brand, Nike could have worked with him as well. They could have easily painted over a swoosh and probably could have gotten away with it.

Painting tennis rackets and shoes happens more often than you might think. NFL players have a deal with adidas and love their Nikes. The player may be wearing a Nike shoe, but it can’t be seen from a distance.

Which is why showing up in an FJ-branded shoe seems to suggest Tiger wasn’t interested in working with Nike.

It wouldn’t be the first time Tiger had flexed his muscles in these trade positions.

In 2015, despite the release of new spikes, Woods wore older versions on the course. At the time, Nike said its recent swing changes led it to use an older model. Nike used a similar refrain in a statement on Sunday, saying they “will work with him to meet his new needs.”

But anyone who knows the business knows that if Woods needed something, it would have been voiced and corrected long before he hit the course. If they couldn’t make him a new peak, they could have tricked him. The only way Tiger is dating FootJoy branded shoes is if Tiger wants to go out and wear FootJoy branded shoes.

And the fact that Tiger left the course in white FootJoys on Monday after the scene that happened while he was in black FootJoys on Sunday shows you that nothing was nipped in the bud.

Why is this a big deal? Because when Tiger misses a swoosh on any part of his body, it looks fake. Aside from Michael Jordan, Tiger has done more for Nike than any other athlete. He and Nike are inextricable.

When Phil Knight signed Woods to a $40 million deal in 1996, the world couldn’t believe it. However, in 2000, when the price was $100 million, no one flinched. Two more transactions followed. The last reportedly came in 2013 for $200 million, although no duration was reported. The deals were almost certainly changed in some way due to his accident, infidelity and breakup in 2008, followed by his lack of success on the course as well as the breakup required by his last accident.

Details have not been shared as to when Tiger’s last Nike contract will end, but unlike LeBron James, he is not on a lifetime deal. All the more reason—since your leverage wanes in the twilight of your career—to bend when you can.

Could it cost Tiger for breach of contract? May be. But Nike wouldn’t do anything to turn the clock back unless executives thought he was gone forever.

Tiger Woods tweeted golf on Sunday night as he was pictured on the course at Augusta National before hitting the course for a practice round. It was obviously fantastic to see the five-time green jacket winner in a competitive environment, but some couldn’t help but notice something different about Tiger…

Hitting golf balls on the shooting range, eagle-eyed viewers noticed Tiger was wearing a pair of FootJoy Premiere Series Packards, instead of his usual Nikes. While it’s unclear why Tiger wore them, it may have been because of the injury he sustained in the serious car accident in February 2021.

Between fiery rivalries, hair color changes and mustaches, Brooks Koepka knows how to stir the pot. In addition to his slamming speech and his beautiful fiancée, Jena Sims, his off-course style inspires plenty of conversation.

BK is definitely trying to stay on top of the trends, but just how over-trendy is the trend? Koepka is capable of styles ranging from basic to bold depending on the event, and he’s not shy about rocking something outside of the typical male comfort zone.

We rounded up some of Koepka’s classic Instagram looks to gauge how he dresses when the clubs are left in the bag.

Rating: 9

Starting off with a high because the red of the plaid print perfectly complements Jena’s plunging dress. The Carolina blue blazer is a flattering accent piece and the look pulls together when paired with off-white pants and a tan.

Rate: 6

Brooks may have to pick up a spare with this rating because I don’t think it’s his strongest look. I will give his shoes a 10 because I think he rocks Nike Jordans. The thick vertical stripes are slimming, but a little loud for a stadium event. The post’s comments section didn’t hold back on BK’s form with comments such as “Just got out of jail?” and “You’re just like the ice cream man.”

Rate: 4

I’m still trying to figure out what BK is trying to accomplish with this look. My first guess was that he was trying to show off a laid back beach look with that Polynesian pattern, but the white Air Force 1s throw away my thought process. It takes a lot of courage to sport an ensemble like this and I admire her confidence, but a pair of slides or sandals would have made more sense.

Rate: 10

Simple, easy and smooth with the Jupiter lifestyle. Jupiter, Florida is all about chill, and the simplicity of Koepka’s outfit makes Jena’s purple dress stand out next to that gorgeous sunset. BK is composed with his relaxed printed sports jacket and his faithful Air Force 1.

Rate: 8

I immediately pictured a cartoon banker wearing a pinstripe suit when I saw this post. It’s a powerhouse look and BK rocked it well while leaving the tracksuit unzipped, wearing a basic white t-shirt underneath, adding silver chains and donning, you guessed it, his Air Force 1 once again. This style looks cozy and clean.

These Jordans may look like an average pair of shoes for the casual shopper, but they sell for up to $2,200. the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 High OG is a limited-edition collaboration from rap superstar, Travis Scott. If you were one of the few who bought them from Nike when they first released, they only retailed for $175. Talk about a nice comeback.
