The Sports Literati take a look at the business side of sports and the early years of one of the foundational brands in the modern sports world. Shoe Dog is a bestselling memoir of Nike's early years as told by the company's founder, Phil Knight. The book traces the origins of Nike from a humble, bunch of salesmen selling a Japanese track shoe named the Onitsuka Tiger out of the back of their trunks, to one of the most recognizable brands in the world. In this episode, Dave and Dave discuss such vital questions as, is Nike a serious running shoe company or just a marketing brand? What about sweat shop labor? And most of all, what is the deal with the Nike Air?
Nike Founder Phil Knight On Legacy and His Perspective on the Track and Field's Present State and Future
CITIUS MAG Podcast with Chris Chavez
Phil Knight is the co-founder of Nike, which he started back in 1964 as Blue Ribbon Sports with his college coach Bill Bowerman. I know…I’m also a bit surprised this happened. During the Olympic Trials, a mutual friend who has worked closely with me on launching The Magic Boost sprung on me the chance to sit down and chat with the Nike founder for 30 minutes. With little prep and everything going on at the Olympic Trials, I figured I’d just roll through and kick back to briefly discuss the new Hayward Field, his thoughts on legacy, the present state and future state of the sport and some of his favorite moments as a track fan. If you want more of the Nike talk and that whole backstory, due to the limited time we didn’t touch on much of it and you can get that out of reading his book Shoe Dog. Think of this one as basically just being a fly on the wall for two fans of the sport meeting over coffee for the first time. 📷 Podcast episode photograph by How Lao | @howlaophotography 🗣 HIRING A PART-TIME PODCAST PRODUCER http://citiusmag.com/seeking-part-time-podcast-producer/ 📈 Support for this episode comes from WHOOP.
