- If bonded seems gone is good why does Nike still use this, but only on the shoulders?Actually:
- bonded seems gone is good
- simple designs are a cop out for not putting any effort, so, that departure is a good thing. Of course, botching the "complex" designs isn't preferable, so I can see how the simple designs can be a good thing
- "covetability" with Nike is a function mostly of brainwashing, so I don't see how the designs change anything
- looking to the future - don't know
- Federer - obviously, but I thought that the Nike fans around here announced that that is a good thing for Nike?
I can't help the ones who bought the RF gear and obliterated it in the wash. washing instructions are there for a reason, I followed them and all my RF gear looks virtually the same as the day I bought them and at the time the Nike RF line was the only tennis brand making bonded seem apparel, then when Adidas started doing it their seems were extremely rigid, unlike the Nike RF apparel.- there have been enough complaints about bonded seems being a problem, so Nike (and others) continue to do it because it is cheaper and due to the planned obsolesce
- it is which is why all low priced offers of the apparel companies feature exactly that
- considering that I live in a world of "nice products" I think I know a thing or two about it. Nike is run-off-the-mill bog standard apparel, so the only explanation for developing emotional bond with something like that is exactly what I say. The amount of people that swear by the swoosh regardless of what the abuse that they have to take from the company is simply astounding
- I guess you missed all the knee jerk reactions around here at the wake of the news.
Here. People throwing kidneys, washing their eyes with bleach etc etc. There were literally tens of threads like those:
I think you could benefit from reading my post again, but if you don't want to I won't blame you, but this conversation with you is getting stale and very boring.Nope. That has nothing to do with washing instructions (that has also been addressed).
I said alluded to the "nice things" to stop you from gushing over an absolutely standard athletic apparel. Nike are middle range tennis apparel with overinflated prices, and most of their products are, shall we say substandard (just like any big brand that tries to cover various price levels including lower ones with cheap products, with the difference that even their "cheap" lines are not particularly cheap for the quality). If you come from such world you would know it. The fact that you think that Nike is "nice" says a lot about what the truth is. I liked how you tried to side-step the facts that I provided with the links I have posted. It is a reality and not particularly flattering. You can abstain from commenting further, since you don't want to. I also liked how you involved Adidas in this. No Nike fanboy misses the chance to **** on them whenever they feel that their favourite brand is under attack. There is also a reason why that is, but the best thing is that Nike and Adidas use exactly the same technology (developed by the same company), so you finding vast differences is nothing short of entertaining.
As for Nike pioneering the bonded seams, the bonded seams were used by other sports industries long before Nike even thought about introducing it, but the company that prompted the widespread use of that technology in tennis first worked with Under Armour on their athletic apparel, before Nike started using it for their tennis lines. It is also done mostly for cost savings and the negatives for the consumer from using it are apparent, unlike the main positives, which are for the producer to pocket even more cash from an already über-expensive for the quality product. That would apply to any company that uses it, of course. Also, the technology itself has been used for decades by the mountaineering industry with absolutely the same results: the apparels that are with bonded seams need to be repaired after a certain period of time (even the most expensive ones like the products by Mammut and Arcteryx).
Are you looking for a specific colour? I’ve seen these for months in Canada and the US (for men).Does anyone know when this T-shirt will be released for men? Seen lots of the pros wearing them in the US. They look nice. Nike dryfit team? https://www.nike.com/gb/t/nikecourt-dri-fit-older-short-sleeve-tennis-top-Tg9Ww6/CD0072-100
The economics are interesting. I don’t feel like the X Knit is catching on. I have the Lava, will get the US Open version. I saw one player in Montreal (other than Shapo) that had it as a spare shoe. I didn’t think the price tag would be an issue but maybe it is. I thought I read the Cage 4 would be even more expensive?
I like it.The final hybrid silhouette of the season between tennis player Nick Kyrgios and basketball player Kyrie Irving, the NikeCourt Air Zoom Vapor X Kyrie 5, arrives in time for Flushing Meadows. This special version matches the purple and green color scheme of the New York City apparel collection...sneakerbardetroit.com
