That Nike is now one of the biggest and most recognizable brands in the world is largely the doing of Bowerman's partner, the man who recently announced his retirement from the company: Phil Knight. Knight transformed Nike, cheap nike air max shoes online outlet not overnight but close to it, into a global powerhouse, known both for its successes and its controversies. In the process, however, he did something else: He turned athletic footwear into fashion.

It's because of Knight that, for example, Kanye West has a signature shoe cheap nike air max from china, the Yeezy Boost. And that, last January, Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel and Raf Simons of Dior sent signature sneakers down their runways. And that, last September, Alice Temperley styled her runway looks with sneakers.

He wasn't in the shoe business, Knight insisted. He was in the entertainment business.
