nike He didn’t like being called “Coach” because he was more than that. He was a Professor of Competitive Response. He was a self-taught shoe cobbler who turned an office underneath the west grandstands into an R&D lab. He was obsessive, meticulous and curious. He was an innovator who would do anything to eliminate the unnecessary. If he could shave ounces off shoes, his runners could trim seconds off their times. He was the co-founder of Blue Ribbon Sports. He is the spirit of Nike.

Today, Bill Bowerman’s statue watches over the homestretch at Hayward Field; a reminder to those fortunate enough to run there that the real purpose of running isn’t to win a race, but to test the limits of the human heart.

nike Home is where the heart is. Where the Men of Oregon were shaped by the Man of Oregon. Where splits were whittled down like wood, and flats were dissected like bugs. Where a passionate coach became a mad scientist, and waffle irons were used for making shoes, not brunch. Where a rebel from a small town nobody knew existed became a legend nobody could forget. Where making people better became the makings of a company.

We’d love to tell you the rest, but we’d rather you experience it.

  •   smileyreilly2 ________*MUST READ*_____ ..........NIKE IS A FAKE!........... . . Nike sweatshop in Indonesia slaves people to work, and make their clothing/ sportswear. Kid, adults, and elders. For example: You can go out and buy an $80 pair of Nike shoes that only costs $7 or $8 to make, and the slave that made it, along with many other pairs of shoes and clothing only make $1.25 a DAY... If they give trouble, or do something wrong, they are severely hurt, and in most cases... Killed... Think the next time u get Nike, that the person who made it could have died doing it. Nike sweatshop on YouTube if you don't believe me. It is the 20 minute long one. SLAERY 2w

  •   kudaddy2013 Hey @nike!!!!!!! Nike's chairman and top CEO, Phillip Knight, is worth over $5 billion dollars and 674 million were made in profits in 2009. However, the company still denies being able to pay workers am extra 20 cents a day. I find it ironic how an American company, which enjoys rights under an American government, takes away human rights I'm other countries. #neverbuyingnike #fuckyounike #nikeslaves 5d

nike This is not an illusion. This is #Magista.

Nike Flyknit has seen the track and the court, but it’s never seen the pitch. After four years of R&D with the world’s best attacking playmakers, @nikefootball has unveiled the Magista. The #Flyknit upper and Dynamic Fit collar create a sock-like feel against the foot for superior touch, so the Magista player can create like never before.

Football will never be the same.

nike An undersized QB shouldn't play so big. Running backs shouldn't look for contact. Fifth-round corners shouldn't be shut down corners. The defense shouldn't be the star of the show. Head coaches shouldn't coach like they're still in college. A team with no rings, from the Pacific Northwest, shouldn't win.

Shouldn't.
