What all basics do you need in a sports kit?
Not only a sports player but an ordinary person can answer this question. A tracksuit, water bottle, your sports device and shoes.
Well, you can survive without rest for once, but I think shoes are very necessary because they direct and divert your way of walking, running and playing. And therefore, shoes should be designed specially to suit your requirements so that they lead to your success.
Shoes have always been playing a very major role from a long time and here we have a variety of 6 most iconic sneakers of the 1996 Summer Olympics.
The colour of the shoes defined the way athletes and the shoe company work in collaboration.
Therefore, Tobie, the Nike designer, created a custom spike plate for each foot.
When Wilson Smith showed these shoes to Tinker Hatfield, another Nike designer, he said, "Well, it's bad design, and you'll sell millions."
During the Olympics, Nike usually releases similar shoes and colour combos to the ones they design for athletes.
