How did consumers come to value Nike so much compared to its competitors? Nike is a seminal cultural innovation. Yet, conventional explanations avoid grappling with the cultural aspects of Nike’s innovation and, as a result, fail to explain why Nike was so successful. Many experts view Nike as a better-mousetraps poster child: Nike engineered the best shoes and earned a reputation for great performance as a result. But, as we demonstrate, this argument does not align with the historical facts. Nike’s famed shoe innovations happened early on and do not coincide with the brand’s takeoff.

Nike went to the trouble of designing a unique Jordan shoe for this purpose—Air Jordans. What set them apart was the ﬂashy red and black design, echoing the team colors of the Chicago Bulls, in contrast to the white shoes everybody else in the league wore.
