Vaccaro, who helped Adidas ZX 750 Donne NBA icon Michael Jordan get his first sneaker deal with Nike, got the ball rolling on business relationships between college coaches and footwear brands in 1977. He told FN that the answer for labels to steer clear of scandals today is by paying athletes.“When I did the deal with the universities — with Jerry Tarkanian [at UNLV], Eddie Sutton [at Arkansas], John Thompson [at Georgetown] and all those first guys Nike Air Huarache Femme — we didn’t break any laws. It was a business deal. Everybody’s allowed to do a business deal for the athletes’ value except the athlete, because of amateurism,” Vaccaro said. “The athletes deserve something, and maybe if they were allowed to get money legally, things like this wouldn’t happen.”The investigations into the student-athlete payments are ongoing, so it is too early to predict the outcome for the individuals involved, much less the larger sports community.But as Adidas noted, Gatto has been put on leave Nike Roshe Run Damenfrom his executive position. And the athlete in question, Bowen, transferred to South Carolina (www.richkin.co.uk an Under Armour school) but is not playing during his freshman season.The NCAA recently stripped the University of Louisville of its 2013 men’s basketball national championship and vacated 123 of its wins as the result of Nike Air Max Zero Damen an unrelated scandal involving an assistant coach providing prostitutes and strippers to players and recruits.As for long-term impacts for the sneaker companies, industry Nike Air Force 1 Dam insiders believe brands need not worry. “So far, the public hasn’t shown that it cares, in terms of taking business from a brand,” said Matt Powell, senior industry adviser for sports with The NPD Group Inc. “
When the scandal broke, I was watching it very closely, and it seemed as if Adidas sales got better right after.”Added Vaccaro, “It’s business as usual tomorrow. People don’t care.”But aside from the lack of consumer reaction, brands have another reason to stay the course with sponsorships. Having ties to colleges is big business for the athletic footwear and apparel giants. Just ask Under Armour, which in May 2016 signed a 15-year, $280 million deal with UCLA, the largest such sponsorship in college sports history.According to retail sales data resource The Licensing Nike Air Max TN Womens Letter, licensed collegiate brand-based merchandise transactions in the U.S. and Canada — apparel included — grew to $3.51 billion in 2016, from $3.35 billion in 2014.And the sneakers the players are wearing on the court, mostly signature styles from big-name pros, are part of what NPD has measured as a $19.6 billion athletic footwear industry.“The brands are getting advertising exposure with their logo on the uniform, so there’s a dollar value you could put on that,” Powell said. “It’s about getting your logo on SportsCenter and in photographs. And they clearly have justified it in their minds that they’re getting benefits for this, even though they’re spending millions of dollars.”9strategy added a new latest industry Adidas Superstar Slip On Donne research report that focuses on “Sneaker market” and provides in-depth Global Sneaker market analysis and future prospects of Sneaker market 2017.
