With the golden age of Stan Smith is declining, adidas is also looking for the next “Stan Smith”, continue to make the brand as a profit engine.

Founded in 1996 in the sports brand Under Armor, initially focused on football players wearing sweat dress, product gene is functional, until now most of its products are still functional, and sportswear is becoming a casual trend Does not match. Prof. Chen Grazutis, an analyst at Bloomberg, argues that Under Armor is in a passive situation when the market moves from functionality to fashion.

A pair of Air VaporMax behind the Nike product logic changes, it can be in the end to Nike, where it is impossible to make the exact conclusion. However, people should be vigilant is that when the explosion has been carefully manufactured out of the burst mode has become a copy of the success, but the more easy to copy, the more easily replaced.
