Nike’s Worst Products

Nike is one of the leading American multinational corporation that has been designing, developing, manufacturing as well as doing international sales and marketing of apparel, equipment, footwear, accessories, and other services. Indeed, Nike is one of the largest apparel providers and athletic shoes all over the world. Its headquarters is based in Beaverton, Oregon, and the company was started on the 25 day of January, 1964. One of the greatest achievement of Nike is that there is probably no sport in the world that has been conducted without the Nike’s products. Despite the fact that Nike products have been trusted and applauded around the globe by many sportswomen and men, there are some of its products that have never met the expectation of users.

The following are some of the worst products ever produced by Nike:

#1. Nike Airmax Model

There is no doubt that Nike Airmax model is one of the poorest product ever produced by the above company. The arch area of this shoe has an embroidered curve that most users do not find it cool. This curve has another negative feature; it compromises the stability of the entire shoe. Moreover, when it is laid on a surface that is flat, only close to a quarter length of the shoe gets in contact with the surface. In most cases, it is hard to see a flat area on Airmax sole, which makes the shoe uncomfortable. While at the same position, the above shoe rocks back, forth, and sideways.

#2. Nike Air Force 1 CMFT Low

The above is another popular product of Nike that is commonly known as ��The Glove.’ For the last decade, the above pair boasts of its modern look. However, this attribute has since been loathed my many wearers, probably due to its weight. The heavy weight of Air Force one has made it one of the worst Nike products.

#3. LeBron 12

LeBron 12 is another product from Nike that has a HexZoom unit placed in the forefoot, purposely for impact protection. Despite the fact that LeBron is designed with Hyperposite wings to offer additional support while negotiating sharp bends, this feature has made it pretty clunky. This is because it makes it incapable of supporting graceful posture or movement. Hence, many sportsmen and women find it a worst product ever!

#4. Lunar Ballistec

The Nike’s Lunar Ballistec has since been the signature boot for Rafael Nadal. It is applauded for its great cushioned midsole, which is eminent when you want something to help you bounce on your step; hence an outstanding sporting shoe. However, its durability is never guaranteed since it wears out pretty fast as soon as you wear it out.

#5. The Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour

This is another product from Nike that has had a bunch of disappointments. It has been the favorite for sportspeople who like playing tennis. It has a zoom cushioning feature at the heels that makes it good for landing. Nevertheless, the above shoe is considered as great when it can be able to stand the test of time, a feature that the above product has terribly failed. Also, its outsole wears out quickly, which means its durability is not guaranteed.
