Nike 2023 General Thread

Sinner and Alcaraz custom shoes ....Chances of new shoes in the future? Also because from what you can see and
we read from many places, the shelves are still full of Nike zoom nxt, Vapor 11 and vapor pro 2 shoes....While models like zoom vapor pro and turbo gp have sold better
Sinner shoes look like actual vp11 while alcaraz looks custom.
Alcaraz: Vapor pro laceline and vapor pro supports. THe drag guard of the outsole does not come up as high as sinners, and his goes wider.
Sinner: Vapor 11 retail version, (Custom Last??)

you mean like the Mac Attack they are releasing because they've been worn by... famous rapper Travis Scott - their vintage/old shoes are fashion now and worn by young people... thats why the retros are being released, not for 50 year olds.
You mean the same shoes that were labeled as "Grandpa shoes" by Gen Z right?

Why do you think they had Travis Scott attached to this release?

Just checking: "They" (Nike) had to attached Travis Scott to this release to attract attention (market) to... GenZ (ages 11-26yr)? But also Nike does not market to that demographic, only 40-55yr olds?

No. Their biggest market is 40-55.

I never said it was their only market.

Just to clarify.

And yes. Travis Scott was attached in an attempt to market to the younger people.

I really apprecaite you sharing that data, reinforces my opinion that their current strategy is really misguided

Look at the nike homepage, I dont see one pic of their core demo

Air Jordan 1 is a mega seller for them, and it's the younger generation buying them, There is no nostalgia attached to the success of that shoe.
Michael Jordan transcends generations. No question about it.

However, I would think that the kids who grew up in the '80s and '90s (that are old enough to remember the excitement, his sneakers brought to the basketball community) would be eager to own a few pairs.

They have the money to do it.

Also, the people that buy the Nike Air Tech Challenge sneakers were kids, teens, and young adults when Andre wore them 25-35 years ago.

The same goes for McEnroe.

It's the nostalgia that brings them back.

Yes. Thank you for sharing your information about Nike's precarious relationship with Tiger Woods and their future outlook on Nike Golf.

I had no idea that things had degenerated to that level, between them.

Based on what I've heard, I'd say that they're starting to show signs that they're going to be pulling out of a few sports, over the next few years.

They cut their marketing department for tennis earlier this year.

I guess the writing has been on the wall for a while now. :(

I can remember when they used to give the players a different outfit for every season.

Then there was a period of time where they kept giving Nadal the same shirt and shorts, only in different colorways.

That was an indication, all of those years ago, that they were starting to pull back.

Now they're doing that with all of the players. They re-using the same designs. Season after season.

Alcaraz really should have his own line by now.

But Nike doesn't seem to want to do that.

Instead, they're investing in Sinner. Which is completely insane.

The only way that Sinner is going to move stuff is if he starts winning grand slams. That's the only way.

Nobody wants to dress like that guy.

100% agreed

Look on the Big Bay of Ease...Alcaraz colors of the regular challenger tops are 2x more expensive than the ones worn by any other Nike athlete.

Alcaraz is already pushing secondary market values up. That solid pink shirt he wore this year? Can't find one listed for under $80, but the other colors are all over the site for $40 or less.

His yellow/blue version of it is hard to find and will fetch triple-digit sums when you do find it. Nothing Sinner wears has that kind of demand.

Have you ever wore the rafa advantage shorts 7 inch vs the normal advantange 7 inch do they fit much different aroujd the waist?

Also you know those advantange shorts from 3 years ago the ones which had a horizontal slit on the sides were they for putting a ball in?

The rafa one are much more angular, much smaller fitting more like underwear. The old slits were for them to go around your knees just like the new ones for this year

The slits are for the ball in your pocket, so it doesn't fly out from the hem of the shorts.

This is a welcome change bc I could never wear my 2015 Rafa Gladiator shorts for that reason. The ball, still in the pocket, would start slapping around during the point, and hit me in the nards a few times.

As to your question about the Rafa shorts, I can't say. I only wear 2-in-1 shorts now. But, they look a hell of a lot more aggressive and fashion forward than the regular shorts. You should be fine on the waist but you may also need bigger quads to fill the Rafa shorts out.

So this deep jungle colour way did they ever release it in a hat or wristband or something

Im astounded why nike doesn't release this stuff at the same time

That said the washed teal wristband headband came a full year before we had the shorts or to so hopefully there'll be some deep jungle accessories in future

Likewise the geode teal

I remember they had Premier wristbands in that color and there was also a Deep Jungle Featherlight hat. I think it was only juniors though.

Anyone know if t shirts released from winter/spring/fall are warmer than the summer collection? I am looking at nikecourt/rafa nikecourt dri-fit tennis t shirt.
