Brooks Koepka is a Nike ambassador and apparently loves his kicks so much he has a retail display in his house.

Unfortunately, according to a report in Discourse Magazine, the vast majority of Do it the brand’s shoes are made using a forced labor transfer program run by the Chinese government:

In March 2020, a damning report by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute revealed that the Chinese government was forcing hundreds of young Uyghur women to produce Nike shoes at the Taekwang factory in Laixi City.

South Korea’s Taekwang factory is one of Nike’s biggest suppliers, producing 8 million pairs of Nike shoes a year, including iconic lines such as Air Max and Shox. He has associated himself with forced labor programs run by the Chinese government that are linked to crimes against humanity.

One such program takes Turkish residents from rural areas of Xinjiang, the northwest region of China, and forces them to leave behind their children and other family members to work in factories across China. Another relocates “graduated” detainees from a network of concentration camps in Xinjiang.

According to the study of the above Australian Institute of Strategic Policy:

As of January 2020, about 600 ethnic minority workers in Xinjiang were employed at Qingdao Taekwang Shoes Co. Ltd. Taekwang’s main client is the American multinational Nike Incorporated.

Workers in Xinjiang are mostly Uyghur women from Hotan and Kashgar prefectures (political districts), which are remote areas in southern Xinjiang that the Chinese government has described as “backward” and “troubled by religious extremism. “.

At the factory, Uyghur workers make Nike shoes during the day. In the evening, they attend an evening school where they study Mandarin, sing the Chinese national anthem and receive “vocational training” and “patriotic education”. The program closely mirrors that of Xinjiang’s “re-education camps”.

The huge Taekwang factory is located in the city of Laixi, north of Qingdao in the Chinese province of Shandong, and belongs to the Taekwang Group, a South Korean chemical and textile conglomerate (chaebol). The Laixi factory in Taekwang is one of the largest footwear manufacturers for Nike, producing more than seven million pairs for the American brand per year.53

Australian Institute of Strategic Policy
(By Australian Strategic Policy Institute)

The Washington Post reported on China’s forced labor program around the same time (2020):

Workers in standard blue jackets sew, glue and assemble about 8 million pairs of Nikes each year at Qingdao Taekwang Shoes Co., a supplier to Nike for more than 30 years and one of the largest factories for the American brand.

They produce pair after pair of Shox, with their elastic shock absorbers in the heels, and the signature Air Max, as well as seven other lines of sports shoes.

But hundreds of these workers did not choose to be here: they are Uyghurs from the western region of Xinjiang, sent here by local authorities in groups of 50 to work away from home.

At the end of their shifts, Uighur workers — almost all women in their 20s or younger — use hand gestures and rudimentary Mandarin to buy dried fruit, socks and sanitary napkins from stalls. Then they walk around the corner, past the factory police station – adorned with Uyghur writing telling them to “stay loyal to the party” and “have clear discipline” – to the dormitories where they live under constant surveillance.

Uyghur workers are afraid or unable to interact with anyone in this city, north of Qingdao, beyond the most superficial transactions at stalls or in local shops, vendors say. But the catalyst for their arrival here is well understood.

“Everyone knows they didn’t come here voluntarily. They were brought here,” said a fruit vendor as she set up her stall. “The Uyghurs had to come because they had no choice. The government sent them here,” another salesman told The Washington Post.

More prison than factory, according to WaPo:

From the side, the facility looks like a prison. There are watchtowers with cameras pointed in all directions and barbed wire fences atop the walls, which display Communist Party propaganda posters touting President Xi Jinping’s “Chinese dream”. “All ethnicities are united in one family,” says a sign.

There is a special police station equipped with facial recognition cameras and other high-tech surveillance systems that workers must pass through when entering and exiting the factory.

Sending a message ? The fans think Kim Kardashian shady estranged husband Kanye West with her latest gym outfit wearing Nike Air Max 95s instead of her usual Yeezy sneakers.

the keeping up with the Kardashians alum, 41, shared a slew of photos via Instagram on Jan. 22 showing off her adorable pink workout outfit. As she seemingly flaunted her matching ensemble of Bo + Teewhich costs less than $100, fans couldn’t help but notice that she put her Nike Air Max shoes on full display.

Her shoe choice was surprising, given that the KKW Beauty founder is known to always wear Kanye’s Yeezy brand — even since she filed for divorce from the “Runaway” rapper, 44, in February 2021.

“Wait a minute.. so Kim is not wearing Yeezy anymore? Shit this marriage really could be over,” someone tweeted about her social media photos. see not wearing Yeezy. I guess she’s taking a mantra out of sight, out of mind! another tweet read.

Comments were inundated with people noticing the seemingly subtle dig. “Oh, she’s muscular…not the Nike Air Max. Kim you gonna piss him off online,” someone wrote in reference to Ye. “She wears Nike now? It’s a sign ! a separate user added. “These are the Nikes for me,” another follower wrote with a crying and laughing emoji.

Kim’s updated shoes come after people wondered why she was still supporting the artist brand ‘Donda’ nearly a year after filing for divorce.

Additionally, the husband and wife, who share children North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm, have moved on with new love partners. Kim is dating a comedian pete davidson since the meeting for Saturday Night Live in October as Kanye struck up a romantic relationship with the actress Julia Fox.

Whether or not Kim sends a message with her Nike Air Max shoes, her low-key divorce from Ye has become more public knowledge. The Chicago native apparently called out the billionaire a few times in his new song “Eazy” – from raising “unruly” children to her relationship with 28-year-old Pete.

“When you give them everything, they only want more,” Ye rapped in the new song, which was released on January 14 in collaboration with The Game. The lyrics apparently referenced their four children. “Boujee and unruly, y’all need to do chores / Rich-ass kids, this ain’t your mama house / Climb on your bro’s shoulders, pull out that Top Ramen.”

In another part of the song, Kanye leaned into the King of Staten Island actor, singing, “God saved me from this accident / Just so I could beat Pete Davidson’s ass.”

Serena Williams has hired various designers for her new Nike collection https://nikeepicreact-flyknit.com/serena-williams-has-hired-various-designers-for-her-new-nike-collection/ Tue, 17 Aug 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://nikeepicreact-flyknit.com/serena-williams-has-hired-various-designers-for-her-new-nike-collection/ Tennis superstar Serena Williams has been a Nike-sponsored athlete since 2003.

Tennis superstar Serena Williams has been a Nike-sponsored athlete since 2003. But as she developed her latest fashion collection with the sportswear giant, she didn’t just tap into the existing roster of company designers. “I’ve been at Nike for many years and I want to see more people in design who look like me,” she said. Fast company. “I wanted to cast our net further, into areas where Nike wouldn’t usually go.”

Two years ago, Williams proposed that Nike launch a design apprenticeship program – the Serena Williams Design Crew – to bring in young designers from communities of color to help design pieces for its collection. Williams helped select 10 talented New York designers who were invited to apprentice at Nike for six months starting in January 2020. This cohort worked closely with Nike designers to create Williams’ new collection, which will be launched this fall. It draws inspiration from ’90s looks that influenced Williams’ aesthetic sensibilities and reflect her own history and personality. From its colorful jumpsuits to its asymmetrical combinations, this bold collection is just the first to recognize that inclusivity should start with who actually designs the pieces, not just who they’re designed for.

An exclusive industry

The fashion industry is notoriously exclusive of black designers: less than 10% of fashion designers at New York Fashion Week are black, and less than 5% of members of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, a trade group prestigious, are black. Over the past three years, the fashion media have documented racial disparities in the world of fashion, but change is slow in coming.

Although Williams is best known for her sporting achievements, she has always had a keen interest in fashion design. From 2000 to 2003, while pursuing her tennis career, she attended the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale to study fashion design. And in 2018, she launches it own fashion line, called S by Serena. Throughout these experiences, she has seen how difficult it is for aspiring black designers to break into the fashion industry.

“This program responds to the opportunity to increase diversity in the design industry,” says Williams. “Can you imagine what it means for a young designer to work within Nike’s world renowned design organization? For me, as a designer, this would legitimately be the best place to work. (Williams says she slipped her own design portfolio into the pile of applications. “I didn’t get picked,” she laughs. “We had very high standards.”)

Nike, for its part, has been criticized for its treatment of workers of color. The company has actively supported athletes who have used their platform to uplift the Black Lives Matter movement, like former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. But he has also faced allegations of racism within his own ranks. Last year, current and former Nike employees created an Instagram account called Black at Nike for sharing their experiences with racial discrimination within the organization.

A program like the Serena Williams Design Crew could help Nike bolster its image as a company that hires diverse talent and supports black employees. And ultimately, Nike hopes it could help attract new generations of consumers from a wide variety of backgrounds. “For many companies, the killing of George Floyd on May 25, 2020 sparked a whole new approach to diversity, equity and inclusion,” said Jarvis Sam, vice president of diversity and global inclusions of Nike. “For us, it was really a catalyst or an accelerator. We believe that having diverse teams will have very positive downstream implications, not only on how our consumers see our commitment to diversity, but also how our employees see it.

Inaugural class of the Design Crew

For the design team, Williams thought it would be best to search one city at a time, rather than doing a national search, as it would allow Nike to tap deep into the talent pool there. Sam helped Williams develop the program and says Nike partnered with organizations like Harlem’s Fashion Row, explored local New York-area community colleges, and even scouted Nike retail stores around the city for solicit nominations.

Williams remained involved throughout the process and helped select the final candidates. “They can bring parts of this city to the design and that’s something you don’t really see often,” Williams says. “We’re talking about doing this program for a really long time and going to different cities, so we really want to build something that’s durable that will have a lot of longevity.” Williams has already helped pick the next round of 11 candidates, this time from Chicago, who began their apprenticeship at Nike in May 2021.

Once the apprentices were selected, each had an onboarding buddy, mentor and personnel manager to give them the tools they needed to succeed. They underwent a three-week training course with Pensole Design Academy, an athletic footwear and apparel program developed by former Nike D’Wayne Edwards.

Among the candidates was Toussaint King, who worked at a marketing company but dreamed of becoming a sneaker designer. He was selected to be part of the first cohort of the Design Crew and go to work on dream projects. During his six-month apprenticeship, he worked on Williams’ Australian Open 2021 shoes, as well as the Air Max Koko sandal and the Air Force 1 which will launch in October. King is one of seven of ten members of the design team to land full-time employment; today he is a shoe designer for the Jordan Kids brand. “I’ve always been fascinated by creating something that doesn’t exist,” he says. “But as a self-taught designer in a highly competitive industry, I don’t think I could have worked on a collection like this without this platform. One of the best parts was working with people at Nike who are design icons to me – being able to talk with them, have lunch with them, just ordinary stuff. It was amazing.

Emiko McCoy, another member of the inaugural cohort, had a fashion background. She studied at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and worked for brands like Champion and Ralph Lauren. But his dream was to work at Nike. “Seeing Serena Williams’ ‘Dream Crazy’ campaign on a billboard in Herald Square was a life-changing moment for me,” she says of the video which featured female athletes recounting their careers, their childhood dreams of global success. “Seeing the greatest athlete of all time – someone who looks like me and brought so many young girls into the sport – inspired me to finally pursue my own crazy dream of becoming a Nike designer.”

As a member of the Design Crew, McCoy worked on performance clothing in Williams’ new collection, which is colorful and covered in patterns. Prints featuring these pieces are designed to tell a story about Williams’ life. The double zero design refers to “love” in tennis as well as her daughter’s initials. Meanwhile, geometric prints pay homage to West African Kente fabric, with “S” for Serena integrated into the design. Even the cutouts are strategically placed on the right shoulder, which is Williams’ service arm. The apprenticeship led to full-time employment as a womenswear designer at Nike.

Nike has hundreds of designers on its staff, but new designers who have come through the Design Crew believe they have the opportunity to shape the brand’s aesthetic. They can incorporate their culture and personal background into the pieces they create, which might resonate with the consumers they are trying to reach. “My design is a microcosm of where I come from and my real life experiences,” says King.

The collection will be available in September.

EXETER – Due to high demand and low supply, George & Phillips owner Bert Freedman has figured out a way to sell the highly anticipated new Nike Air Max Exeter Edition running shoes fairly, while supporting a local cause .

Freedman said his store had only received 11 pairs of Exeter Edition shoes for sale, which were previously intended to be sold directly to customers through Nike’s SNKRS app. Nike’s sales team decided to “break their own rules” and send a shipment to their former local independent factory outlet. Nike had a factory on Front Street from 1974 to 1983.

Freedman said he has already generated interest from more than three dozen people wanting to purchase a pair of Exeter Edition shoes.

Historically speaking: Nike in Exeter

With only 11 pairs, he decided the fairest thing to do was to hold a raffle. He said he decided to partner with the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul community support center to raffle off the chance to buy one of 11 pairs for $200, with $50 from each sale going to SVdP.

“I didn’t expect to get a lot of shoes,” Freedman said. “What I like the most is that we can help St. Vincent de Paul in the process. I said let’s do a fundraiser that will help the community while everyone is excited about these shoes. Saint Vincent de Paul has done such a good job over the years helping those in need.

“I thought that was the fairest way to sell the shoes to anyone who wants a pair,” Freedman said. “Now that Cléo Castonguay has passed away, (fundraising) is a way to help carry on his legacy. All the volunteers they get, it shows you what the world really needs right now.

Molly Zirillo, executive director of SVdP, said it was a “pleasant surprise” when Freedman reached out and wanted to partner for the raffle, calling it a “unique opportunity” to own a piece of the contemporary history of Exeter.

“Bert has always been a huge supporter of us, so we’re really grateful he thought of us when he came up with the idea for the raffle,” Zirillo said. “George & Phillips, those shoes, Nike, they’re all part of our history as a city. Between our history as an industrial city, the Nike factory and now how they broke their own rules to allow Bert to sell some of the shoes. It’s great because it will go towards helping our neighbors in Exeter who are in need.

Freedman said anyone can enter the raffle until April 28. He said the winners would be drawn and posted on Facebook on May 1.

“Even if people aren’t interested in buying the shoes, they should still donate to St. Vincent de Paul because they really need the support,” Freedman said. “We’re trying to figure out how to have a Facebook Live event where we’ll post a video of us drawing names. Just keep an eye on our Facebook page and we’ll post updates on the draw throughout the month.

You probably have a few pairs of Nike shoes lying around the house, but you might not know that once upon a time the brand was famous for its Swoosh that wasn’t actually called Nike. The label was founded in 1964 as Blue Ribbon Sports by Bill Bowerman, who was actually the trainer of the famous Phil Knight (you know, the Shoe Dog author and co-founder of Nike) at the University of Oregon. The pair have reached a 50-50 business deal for ownership of the new company, after Knight agreed with a group of Japanese businessmen to export the country’s popular Onitsuka Tiger shoes to the United States.

The first dual-design trainer, the Tiger Cortez, was discontinued in 1967, but relations soured between Tiger and Blue Ribbon Sports and the pair separated in 1971. After the split with Tiger, Blue Ribbon Sports is entirely rebranded as Nike (after employee Jeff Johnson dreamed of the Greek goddess), although Knight originally wanted to call the company Dimension Six.

Next, Nike needed a logo, and Knight asked Carolyn Davidson, a student and illustrator at Portland State University, to design one. The Swoosh as you know it now cost $35 back then, although Knight gave it 500 shares in 1983, which is worth around $1 million today.

Nike, Inc was born in 1971, first with the Nike Cortez and then with the Waffle design. Since then the company has gone from strength to strength, notable moments being the introduction of the 1988 “Just Do It” ad campaign, the signing of major sports stars such as Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, LeBron James and the late Kobe Bryant. and the introduction of patented “Air” technology with the Tailwind shoe in 1979. In 1987, Nike was the first brand to use Beatles music in an advertising campaign, launching an Air Max commercial set to “Revolution”, and in 2018, he unveiled an ad campaign featuring athlete and political activist Colin Kaepernick.

Since the first Niketown opened in Portland, Oregon in 1990, Nike sneakers have become widely available and there are now nearly 1,200 stores worldwide, as well as the Nike Sneakrs app and online store. line. It’s easily the biggest sports brand in the world.

Below are the best Nike shoes you can buy right now, to take your own sneaker collection to the next level.

Nike Shoes Could Be Key To Catching Washington Riots Suspect — Quartz https://nikeepicreact-flyknit.com/nike-shoes-could-be-key-to-catching-washington-riots-suspect-quartz/ Tue, 12 Jan 2021 08:00:00 +0000 https://nikeepicreact-flyknit.com/nike-shoes-could-be-key-to-catching-washington-riots-suspect-quartz/ US federal authorities are asking for help in identifying a suspect in connection with pipe bombs found in the Republican and Democratic national committees on January 6, the day of the violent storming of the Capitol building by supporters of President Donald Trump.

US federal authorities are asking for help in identifying a suspect in connection with pipe bombs found in the Republican and Democratic national committees on January 6, the day of the violent storming of the Capitol building by supporters of President Donald Trump. Photos of the individual don’t leave much room. His face – assuming it is a man – is covered with a mask, and the hood of his sweatshirt hides the rest of his head. His clothes are simple and offer no clear identifying details.

Thus, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) request if anyone recognizes the more discernible aspects of her outfit, her backpack and sneakers. Online amateur sleuths wasted no time in identifying the shoes as the Nike Air Max Speed ​​Turf. If they’re right, the shoes aren’t very common, which could help the FBI narrow down the number of suspects.

FBI

Online sleuths identified them as the Nike Air Max Speed ​​Turf.

Sneaker fans may know the Air Max Speed ​​Turf as a style from the mid-1990s. Nike reintroduced them in 2012 and released more versions in 2018, including two color combinations that may be the shoes seen on the suspect. Unlike widely distributed styles, such as Nike’s popular Air Force 1, there aren’t millions of pairs on the streets of the United States, and although they are available on resale sites such as eBay and StockX, they aren’t traded with the same fervor as sought-after styles such as Air Jordans. That means a limited number of people are likely to own a pair, and the distinctive look makes them relatively easy to spot.

It’s not the best lead the FBI could have hoped for, but feds have few clues as to the suspect’s identity so far. according to the Associated Press. They are also concerned about the possibility that other threats involving explosives or gun violence as the inauguration draws near and Trump leaves office.

The FBI has asked for the public’s help as it attempts to identify all of those accused of illegally entering the Capitol, assaulting police and possessing items such as pipe bombs during the January 6 riot. Many should prove easier to catch since their faces have been caught on camera clearly, and a number have already been arrested.

On October 12, 2019, Eliud Kipchoge achieved what so many athletes and spectators said was impossible: he ran a marathon of less than two hours. To commemorate the 35-year-old Kenyan’s phenomenal achievement, Nike has prepared a special edition of the Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT%, the final version of the prototype that Kipchoge wore to make history.

Technologically, the commemorative pair is identical to the unfinished product worn during the INEOS 1:59 Challenge in Vienna. Two forefoot Zoom Air modules work in tandem with ZoomX foam throughout the midsole to provide increased impact protection and cushioning. The custom carbon fiber Flyplate, which has been the subject of controversy in the racing world since the Vaporfly NEXT%, helps with responsiveness in every stride. Since the sturdy sole added extra weight to the silhouette, Nike’s innovation team modified the company’s beloved Flyknit to the lighter but equally durable AtomKnit.

Similar to Kipchoge’s pair on October 12 last year, the festive release features a predominantly white and black palette, with lower halves indulging in a slightly yellowed aesthetic. As this is a special pair, however, the “ZoomX” branded heel is split into red and green layers as a nod to the Kenyan flag; the insoles alternate between the two colors and are stamped with the text “E:K” (left) or “1:59:40” (right). The heel pull tabs are also marked with Kipchoge’s initials and the marathon record time, which breaks down to a stunning sub-4:34 per mile or sub-2:50 per kilometer.

Full release details are still unknown, but this Alphafly NEXT% may come to Nike.com on the anniversary of the INEOS 1:59 Challenge or Kipchoge’s birthday (November 5). Either way, enjoy a first look at the pair below.

The Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% “Kenya” releases October 11th exclusively for Nike members in the UK via the NRC app, while a wider drop is expected to arrive in 2021.
