At the mountain today there was a kid in full nike outerwear (pretty dope looking), and a bad leuitenat with a big swoosh stitched into it and everything said nike 6.0 . I know theres an old thread about it, but does anyone know if theyre trying to get into skiing like they have with skateboarding? I know they sponsor bode, but im wondering if this is their next big thing...
I really like nike. When Im skiing, I usually use my nike windbreakers and starter jacket. Sometimes, when it's really cold when I go skiing at breckenridge on Martin Luter King weekend, I will duct tape handwarmers everywhere aorund my body and wear a turtle neck.
those suits Tucker has are pretty dope. I was pretty confused when i first saw them, but they are definitly good gear, and well.. if nike wants to throw money at our sport, I say let them, as long as they don't start taking a lot of business away from the companies that support our sport 100%.
nike are already in skiing with ACG. There gonna kill tahe industry. undercutting the core brands. soon the smaller companies are gonna be force out. same with adidas and goggles. why would anyone actually consider buying them when there are better more competivly priced alternatives avalible? i agree with the ski indusrty needing to grow but i think nike and other multi-national companies trying to buy the market is the wrong way to promote growth!
well the "core brands" should make some better clothing, because until then i refuse to buy any of their sponges they call clothing. i'd rather have quality clothing than a name on it that shows that i'm "core".
