Given that Puma's new Bolt-endorsed line of running shoes doesn't really contain any groundbreaking innovations, either, it seems like simply more of the same rather than anything fresh and exciting.

Puma is reaching out to a different market than Nike, it is understood, and Usain Bolt simply does not have the same celebrity status or marketing clout as Michael Jordan. The relationship itself, however, just seems lackluster compared to the long-running Air-Jordan campaign and to other efforts made by other companies in the securing of endorsements and engaging in product-specific celebrity alignments. A rather basic looking running shoe blandly supported by a world-class runner -- the balance isn't there, and neither is they hype. There is more excitement brewed by the new comfort-oriented shoes being released by Asics than there is when it comes to Bolt's purported choice in footwear.

Other celebrity associations with footwear have been more successful, likely…… [Read More]

The Company has decided that it would be a more profitable company if it was able to produce one shoe for the marketplace instead of a variety of sizes. The one shoe that the company produces will have to provide the opportunity for the greatest amount of people to purchase and therefore will have to (statistically speaking) appeal to the largest audience. There are a number of statistical methods that would help in determining just what that audience is and who would fall into that category.

Membership in an exclusive, elite privileged club of those who own "the best" -- something that not just anyone can have. To wear Nike Air Jordans was to reify a sacred experience. It was a vehicle to feeling as if one were the hero figure, Michael Jordan" (Aaker & Biel, 1993, p.105). This excerpt demonstrates the extreme length of effectiveness of the complex and truly multi-faceted marketing campaign launched by Nike.

In conclusion, professional athletes have long exerted a strong influence over men's fashion and sports apparel. However, the case of Air Jordans represents a shoe where a celebrity endorsement truly revolutionized the product, the celebrity and the entire athletic shoe industry. Nike took a highly calculated and highly strategic risk when they started courting Michael Jordan and when they used such a tremendous bulk of their advertising budget on this particular campaign. However, their strategy paid off: they successfully…… [Read More]

The nudity of the female form is sure to lure a man's eye, but the bold sexuality of her nudity is sure to catch the woman's attention as well and tell her what she can do to lure a man's attention.

Along the way to these stellar accomplishments however Nike has been accused of going too easy on suppliers who violate child labor laws and having questionable ethics (Doorey, 2011). It has also been experiencing high legal costs due to the various approaches the company takes to protecting its brand (Nike Investor Relations, 2012). As the company pursues high growth opportunities in women's apparel including shoes, one of the fastest growing markets it competes in, it is challenged with relatively moderate growth in sales, relatively flat gross contribution margins at 10% and a Return on Assets (ROA) of 14% with little growth over the period of analysis shown in the Appendix.

This experimental research article provides the results and analysis of a direct experimental comparison between steel and aluminum horseshoes in terms of how the horses leg and specifically the horses knees move when wearing different types of shoes. The results give clear indicators for which types of performance or typical functions are best accomplished with aluminum shoes, going into a fair amount of technical detail in making this assessment. Generally speaking, a larger carpal angle and an evident relieving of tension was observed in horses with aluminum rather than steel shoes, suggesting many different performance enhancements can be achieved with the use of aluminum shoes. This source provides very specific information that can be directly used in answering the research question.

Accessed 22 March 2012.  http://www.anvilmag.com/farrier/usalsonq.htm l Perhaps the most directly and entirely on point of the resources selected, this article has a slight failing in that it does not provide direct research data in coming to the conclusions that are drawn. This is not to say that the data does not exist, and the author has been a researcher and practitioner in the field for many years and was a pioneer in the use of aluminum horseshoes (at least in the United States), however he does not present direct research results here.

Iran Persia Children Heaven

Words: 627 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 20091841

Children of Heaven

One of the defining elements of Children of Heaven is the bond between siblings. Ali and Zahara are close enough in age to form a strong relationship that allows them to address the multifaceted problem of the missing shoes. The problem is multifaceted because they know their parents cannot afford new shoes, and to lose her shoes would hurt the parents' pride. Zahara and Ali work together, rather than fighting each other, which is remarkable aspect of their young personalities. Many siblings never would have worked together in this way. Instead of telling the parents what happened, Zahara works with Ali because she trusts him. Ultimately, they succeed in hiding the truth from their parents even if it makes their lives at school difficult. The missing shoes motivate both Ali and Zahara to think creatively throughout the film. First they decide to share the same pair of…… [Read More]

2. Zahara's first reaction to the missing shoes is touching. She could have immediately told on Ali, and she even threatens to do so unless Ali can come up with a creative solution. As they pass notes together on the floor, the father looks on suspiciously. The children create their own pact, separate from their parents. Using the clever method of note writing, they conspire to share shoes. Zahara is not completely happy with the solution, but she trusts her brother. Ali feels terrible that he lost the shoes and is willing to do what it takes to make up for the error. They understand together that it would not solve anything to tell their parents. The shoes are already lost, and they need to come up with a solution that will prevent them from getting into more trouble. This scene has an emotional impact on me in the tender way the brother and sister learn to bond in a time of need.

3. There are several elements that make it possible to compare Children of Heaven to The Bicycle Thief. For one, a bicycle features at the end of Children of Heaven as it carries a pair of pink shoes. This could even be a deliberate and conscious allusion to 1948 The Bicycle Thief on the part of the filmmakers given the movies share much in common. Elements that the two films share in common include featuring a poor family at the center of the story; the use of creative thinking to solve real world problems; and the theme of personal pride especially as it relates to masculinity. Both Antonio and Ali share in common a desire to redeem their poverty as a matter of personal pride. They understand the need to break some social rules and norms in order to help those they love.

4. Children of Heaven is unique in that it offers insight into the daily lives of Iranians. The pacing of the film is good, and aesthetically, the film presents Tehran in a way that focuses on its people. Two children are the protagonists of the film, but the film is written for everyone. Likewise, the movie takes place in Iran but the themes are universal in scope. Ali and Zahara work together; they do not want to hurt their parents who cannot afford new shoes. The film is heartfelt, heartwarming, and touching. Scenes that reveal the tender bond between two young siblings show how emotional ties transcend the petty problems that poverty presents. Anyone curious about Persian society should watch Children of Heaven. However, the film does transcend its cultural and historical context because it shows how people work together to collaborate creatively on common goals.

In this manner, a chain of custody could be established. if, say, Aldo's product had suddenly jumped from one step of the process to another, it might indicate that Aldo had not gone through the usual channels; had possibly stolen the idea, or copied it to a significant degree from Alexander McQueen. In either case, the designer could protect himself or herself by following the customary procedures of their marketplace.

Can Knockoffs Be Stopped?

ith so many ways to counterfeit designer fashion items like clothing, shoes, and handbags, and so few laws to prevent the actual production of pirated merchandise, stopping knockoffs would seem to be an almost impossible task. Nevertheless, knockoffs can be controlled if designers, retailers, and government authorities remain vigilant. As noted by American designers, merchandising is the key to the American design process.

Running Room

Words: 1159 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 8505787

Running Room Case Study

Question 1 Do a SWOT on the Running Room.

The Running Room's strengths include the fact that the Running Room offers personalized service and quality shoes expressly designed for running and for the unique sports needs of runners. Also, the relatively low cost of opening up and maintaining the store means that it is easy to enter the market on a store-by-store basis. The Running Room's weaknesses are that the store has a relatively small niche market, that of serious runners and/or health conscious, older consumers. While serious runners do not generally patronize stores like Foot Locker, more generalized athletic shoe stores such have a wider market base and can sell more varieties of cheaper shoes at volume.

The threats to the Running Room include the store's primary competitors in the form of small independent outlets that exhibit local market strength based on longstanding customer loyalties.…… [Read More]

Having a relationship with Manolo Blahnik shoes and the Prius

'I am what I buy.' According to Susan Fournier, consumers have relationships with brands much in the same way they have relationships with human beings. Brands become a form of identity, much like hanging out in a certain clique of friends defines one's sense of 'self.' Brands define our economic class, social status, and life state based upon their name and associations. The ethos of a brand transcends the functionality of the product. Marketers position brands to be attractive to certain types of consumers and consumers eagerly embrace such positioning and use it as a method of self-definition.

Advertisements Comparison

Advertisements to Compare

Understanding the consumer behavior is the first and significant step in ensuring the product intended for sale gets the right placement in the sales chain. The communication of the desired message about a product to the target customer is of great importance since without getting information about a product then there is no way one can purchase the product. This is because the customers have to have adequate information for them to make an informed decision of whether or not they will purchase what is being sold.

The paper will look at two advertisements and make a comparison of the two. It will also identify the target group that is likely to purchase the product that is on the advertisement.

This behavior is supported by Nordstrom's management that encourages its employees to exceed their job requirements when assisting customers. From this point-of-view, there are numerous differences between Nordstrom and most of its competitors. For example, Sears is one of the department stores that do not seem to pay that much attention to the quality of customer service. Sears' merger with Kmart was supposed to improve customer experience, but the numerous complaints from customers reveal a different situation. Customers complain about the modifications made within the stores, which confuse them, and make it difficult for them to identify the products they are interested in. Also, customers complain about the fact that the staff at Sears is not able to properly assist them.

Crisis at Footwear International

Case Summary

A multinational shoe manufacturing company has been accused of deliberately designing a shoe with an insole that is offensive to Muslims. Footwear International consists of a number of companies that are semi-autonomous with regard to operations, and are governed by boards of directors that include local business community members. The Footwear International company in Bangladesh experienced severe criticism from local activist student groups who interpreted the design of an insole to include the name of Allah. Further, the students charged the manufacturing company of being owned and financed by Jews, and somehow linked the entire episode to Salman ushdie. The designer of the shoe -- a devout Bengali Muslim who does not speak or read Arabic -- declared that the pattern integrated into the insole design was inspired by Chinese temple bells that she purchased. Further, the insole design had been considered and approved…… [Read More]

According to Paddock, "The American Psychological Association (APA suggests that the proliferation of sexual images of girls and young women in the media is harming their self-image and development." The APA found that these images often arrest healthy development in a variety of areas, including self-esteem, which can cause a woman to display anxiety and shame. The article specifically mentions Christina's advertisements as examples of a negative portrayal of women (Paddock). Thus, the images portray women incorrectly in two ways. First of all, they portray women in a style of beauty that is not common, encouraging these women to believe that the advertised type of beauty is the only type of beauty. In response, some young girls are liable to have low self-esteem, in addition to spending a great amount of money on beauty products that they don't need. In short, the advertisements suggest that only one type of beauty…… [Read More]

Crime analysis is one of the most important processes in the fight against crime and efforts towards enhancing the effectiveness of the criminal justice system in dealing with crime. In the past few years, crime analysis has continued to expand in law enforcement agencies across the globe. This expansion has contributed to the development and use of different methods of crime analysis including strategic, tactical, and administrative strategic analysis.

The main concern in virtue ethics becomes about a person's moral character. When people choose to develop their moral character, better virtues will be created, and thus there will be more people acting in virtuous ways in all aspects of their lives -- and this includes how they treat all animals.

One example to be considered when thinking about how a person with a strong sense of virtue might behave is to counter it with how a person with a strong sense of duty might behave. From a duty sense, if one were a livestock farmer, he or she might believe that his or her duty lies in what is best for the people because, after all, the job is about raising livestock for slaughter, which will then become food for people. Therefore, the first duty would be to humans and the second duty to animals (Panaman 20008) (which may…… [Read More]

2. How important is it to "walk in the other person's shoes" when trying to avoid or resolve a conflict? Explain.

It would seem to be extremely important to be able to "walk in the shoes" of other people in any situation where the individuals involved might be prone to frustration or anger. In fact, the ability to appreciate the perspective of others in this way would help imagining the possible trigger points of the other person. Aside from getting a better view about the way we should communicate our anger, stepping into the shoes of another also allows us to consider more fairly the expectations or frustrations that anybody might feel in the same circumstances. We are less likely to experience anger if we believe that the other person is only responding in the same way we might if the situation were reversed.

This is a cost to the company, but the profits to the underwriters provide their incentive for performing the underwriting tasks, and so this spread is necessary (Minarss, 2003; Carey, 2009).

theories on motivation that relate to an employee switching from salary to commission. The Maslow "Hierarchy of Needs" theory is applicable and appropriate; Maslow believed that people are motivated to fulfill basic needs first, then they move on to other needs. He presents five levels in his hierarchy of needs and the first is "physiological needs": these are survival needs -- food, water, air to breathe and sleep. The motivation to earn more money covers the ability to buy food and to have fresh water. The second level of Maslow's Hierarchy of needs is the most applicable to the switch from salary to commission; that second on the hierarchy are "security needs" -- steady employment, access to healthcare, a safe place to live and shelter from the environment. The other needs (social, esteem, and "self-actualizing") fit into the change from salary to commission, but of those "self-actualizing" is particularly germane…… [Read More]

John Fitzgerald Kennedy (JFK) was a tremendously important figure in modern American history despite the fact that his presidency was cut short after less than three years by his tragic assassination in 1963. Born into a wealthy and politically influential family, Kennedy served in the U.S. Navy during World War II after which he served as a U.S. Congressman from 1946 until his election as the nation's 35th president, overcoming the significant obstacle of prejudice against Catholics in American politics. Kennedy also suffered from colitis, chronic back problems, and Addison's Disease throughout his career, a fact that was largely hidden from the public in an era where the press maintained a form of "gentlemen's agreement" to avoid publicizing unflattering personal information about political representatives. Likewise, no public mention was ever made of Kennedy's extramarital affairs. His presidency faced several extremely important domestic,…… [Read More]

These methods of informal deterrence would help to prevent Bobby's criminal behavior.

Since he already committed the crime, Bobby would certainly need to be punished. However, Beccaria strongly argued that punishment must not be cruel, and must fit the crime. Clearly, Bobby never intended to hurt the homeowner; he broke into the home when he knew she would not be there.

Depending on the amount of property stolen, Bobby would have to pay the consequences. If this is his first offense, Bobby could be sentenced to a public form of community service, such as picking up trash by the roadside. He would also have to regularly report to a counselor. Parents could impose a strict curfew. This mixture of informal and formal methods of deterrence would help to stop Bobby from engaging in more criminal behavior.

Cultural Counselor

Being a counselor can sometimes be a really tough job. Counseling can only be effective and beneficial when the counselor places himself or herself in the shoes of his or her client. If he or she is unable to do so, he or she will never become an effective counselor. Placing oneself in the circumstances of someone else is not easy, let alone placing oneself in the shoes of a person who is of a different race, religion or culture. That is the real test of a counselor. In this paper I shall discuss what is required to understand the cross-cultural relationships in counseling to help the client get over their problem easily. All the dimensions pertaining to counseling (of a client of a different background that the counselor) will discussed with the case scenario.

The schedule decisions would generically be subjected to mutual agreements between the staff members, approved by the manager.
