The firm, Nike, takes its name from Nike, the winged
goddess of victory. Nike employs sixty designers and
releases 500 footwear designs each year. The first Air
Max shoe to make the internal components of its sole
visible was issued in Spring 1982. The shoes are worn
by athletes but are aimed primarily at a youthful market
for which high-performance footwear is currently
fashionable. The aesthetics of the shoe are more
important than its performance in use.
