when Nike charges $100 for their shoes, they are also taking into account research and development, marketting, manufacturing and implementation of a worldwide ditribution system.

The logic for saying nike overcharges, is like saying Intel/AMD overcharge for silicon. CPUs are just silicon sand, how dare they charges $500 for a few grams of silicon!!!

lol yea...because it takes a lot of r&d to make a shoe an asian or mexican sweatshop kid could producec for 50 cents. if you seriously believe the $100 million that goes into the r&d for the equipment of superstar athletes are the same as the $100 shoe you just bought, you my friend are sadly mistaken. i bet you anything that michael jordon's shoes (when he was with nike) is NOTHING compared to what you bought for $200 if anything, ppl like mike prolly had the soles laser cut and hand stiched by experts.

I would have bought one but the network assignment is very limited. I travel to various countries and buying the US edition would be stupid for me. I'll hopefully pick one up from Germany when there as phones there are usually the least restricted.

So, where did you come from, Stern? Wharton? HBS?

Also, as a fan of the NBA, I've actually managed to get my hands on a few shoes actually worn by the players. All you need to do is have a hot girlfriend, and ask (or have teh gf ask) players nicely.

Let me assure you, the shoes that players wear come from the same factory as what you buy in the store... Players just get new shoes after almost every single game. The factories you speak of have be designed to produce thousands of shoes a day, and also like you said, need to be operated by "sweatshop kids". Since you're a brilliant business planner, why don't you go ahead and start you own company, design just as many varied and specialized shoes for athletes, charge 1/10th what Nike charges, and distribute them at the same global scale.
