I see what you're saying, but I disagree. Nike has all of the guys that kids want to be like.

Kobe, Vince, Wade, Lebron, Carmelo, Nash...

Nobody is singing "I wanna be, wanna be like Yao." Even in China, where he is one of the biggest celebrities, kids are too short to want to be like him. If they're going to model somebody's game, it's going to be one of the guys on the list I gave above.

Remember that Lebron goes to Asia every year to build publicity for his shoes. The basketball fans there know who he is.

Iverson is the most popular player in Asia. Also, football (soccer) does not have a great market really. The World Cup's returns are shit compared to Nascar.

Nike seems to have the most exciting player in every sport. Who can argue with that strategy?

Basketball - Lebron/Kobe
Soccer - Ronaldhino
Football - Vick
Golf - Tiger

Any sport where there is a clear most exciting player who is not wearing Nikes?

That is simply a stunning list. I can't believe Nike is even trying anymore.

Adidas is making money off the soccer people. Nike has no presence for soccer heads. Nike is still gonna be the more popular brand though. The three stripe thing gets old real quick.

Thing is, Adidas' marketing strategy for soccer sucks. You see the WC profits? Not that great. Everything is riding that the Adidas_1 will do well. I don't have faith in it after trying them.

Got to go with nike, Don't know what adidas was thinking selling salomon to amer sports, however taylormade and rockport brands do well for adidas and nike aint ever going to compete with addidas in football until they actually show some passion for the sport.

Whoever said that the adidas_1 is in direct competition with the Nike Plus doesn't know what they are talking about. The adidas_1 is customized cushioning and support. The Nike+ is nike with iPod which keeps track of training, running. Very nice combo but NOT competing against adidas_1. Adidas does have competition for the Nike+ on the way. It's not with Apple but with Polar. Apple may seem like the better known name and it's neat and all, but for the serious runners out there...they know that Polar is the BETTER match for a shoes and running. The new adidas Adistar shoe will have a built in chip, instead of the Polar foot pod. THat chip will send info the Polar watch. The Heart Monitor is also included and also sends info to the watch. Basically, instead of an iPod, the watch is in place + there is a heart monitor. Adidas wins this one I say, by a slight margin. It's better for the SERIOUS runners. If you are casual, go with Nike, it's probably better for you.

As far as classics go...Nike just MURDERS adidas when it comes to basketball shoes. Adidas though does have the shelltoe shoes and people buy those faster than adidas can keep them stocked. The Jordan shoes will always dominate. Lebron's shoes are just boring. They'll never live up to the Jordans. Adidas kills Nike when it comes to STYLE shoes. Their Lifestyle shoes sell a ton.

As far as comfort goes: I can't comment on Nike as of the past year or so. I stopped wearing Nike after 15 years of EXCLUSIVE Nike!!! I wouldn't wear anything else but Nike back in the day. I had the shox and I am one of those unlucky customers who got a lemon pair of shoes. The shox sagged on one shoe after just a couple months. I've also had a pair of older Jordans get punctured right in the damn air pocket. One other pair of running shoes also got punctured and air squeeked every step I took LOL I switched to Adidas out of fustration over the quality of Nike. Also, when you get older you care more about COMFORT and QUALITY over the LOOK. If you've never tried a3 cushioning for Adidas, you're missing out. I haven't tried the Nike360, so maybe I'm missing out also, but the a3 ss Structure shoes for adidas are incredible! It's for basketball. The a3 gigaride running shoe for adidas is also incredible! If you speak to marathon runners they love the adistar or supernova shoes. Even Response feels damn good! I'm happy I made the switch. Nike might have a better LOOK to their shoes, I'll give them that, but Adidas is superior in comfort and especially in quality of shoe. This is just my opinion. Try on a pair of NIKE 360 and go for a run..THEN try on a pair of Adidas gigaride and go for a run. You can't appreciate the gigaride without actually running in them, you'll see what I mean. For those who have the 360 shoes, let me know how they are.
