Ok, I'm gonna spell it out, in the other thread, he posted with zero backup, that most here are not in Nike's target demo.

You just posted a little more factual evidence that 2/3'rds of Nike's sales come from those under 35. If that's the case, aren't a large population of members here in their mid 20's to mid 30's?

It has nothing to do with my specific age or shape. And FWIW, I'm IN shape... Round is a shape!

A large population of TCG is mid-20's to mid-30's, but as stated before, it is also a very poor sample of the US as a whole, so the statement that a large majority of Nike's target demo likely gives zero fucks, one way or the other, still stands.

You're soo right. Last time I checked I wasn't a woman, young, or an avid runner, but I spent my time shadowing my son at cross country meet this past Saturday. I think he ended up running 3 miles. From there it was to my daughters' volleyball tournament where I worked with her between rounds to helping her with drills on the basic.

What "athletic" shit did you do this weekend? Stroking off doesn't count.

Eehh they make those cross country courses so windy, that you only have to walk a 1/4 mile to see a majority of those races (ex track and cross country coach...)

What are you even arguing? That you should be a marketing target for Nike? Go buy some fuckin Nike tight spandex shorts which show if you are circumcised or not and enjoy yourself!

I was with my college athlete at the Nike outlet store in Wiscansin. It was packed! Conservative Republican Wiscansinians buying Nike crap...didn’t look like a boycott to me.

My guess is you would love to see me in tight spandex shorts...

Yea, the one off 165 (104th St) in Pleasant Prairie where my Sister worked. Where do you think I got all my Nike's? It's the lot full of Illinois plated cars! It's always packed on the weekends.

You almost need to get there when the doors open to even have a half a chance at finding any matching sizes in the show you want sometimes. People just pull them all out and then never put them back so boxes upon open boxes of shoes. Especially at the time, those back wall racks.

I also just generally don't like the styles they have in the store. Whether it's because that's what Nike sells or because that's just because it's the shit no one else wants, IDK

I'm not all about the flashy/loud shoes though...something simple with like 2, maybe 3 total colors.

Don’t let the numbers take away the satisfaction of boycotting Nike and feel like you’ve made a difference by not giving them your money though:rofl:

I agree. We have better luck at the Gurnee Nike store.

This is one of the reasons I stick to ACG's. A lot less "flashy". :D

I actually prefer Nike's over most other's as I have a narrow foot and they just fit better. But with that said, my last pair I bought were a pair of Fila's.

I’ve got a pair of cheapo Pumas for weekend duties, some old Reebok retros for yard work, Sperry’s for casual affairs, and Steve Madden Brown leather chukkas for work, Timbo’s for winter

I refuse to buy Nike...because their stuff is garbage. The only difference for me, now, is that their spokesman finally fits the quality of their products.

I do well with Puma, Merrell and Rockport.

For running I go with Brooks.


Nike? No thanks

Just because a person isn't an athlete doesn't mean their kids aren't. Kids are a huge demographic especially if you consider how much stuff you end up buying for teams.

Also, just because I'm not a pro athlete of hell for that matter even an amateur athlete doesn't mean I don't buy stuff. For over a significant portion of the year I've done 1.5-2 miles a week swimming laps. Kind of dropped off due to school schedules and the likes, but need to get back on track. I still buy gear, but I would think it's more that I look at things other than brand recognition for buying stuff. Then again that could fit the demographics you're talking about too.
