It's gotta be the shoes. How else to explain the rapid rise of New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin, the roster cut turned global icon?

Nike will begin capitalizing on Lin's incredible rise to fame by selling a $130 version of its Hyperfuse sneakers in New York Knicks colors, according to Reuters. To be clear, these aren't "Air Jeremy's" or "Air Lin" signature models, but they are the shoes worn by Lin this season.

Nike said it will launch the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse Low basketball shoes, built especially for Lin, this weekend in Orlando, Florida, where the NBA is holding its All-Star festivities.

"It's not a signature line but a version of the shoe that he's been wearing this season," the company told Reuters.

The Hyperfuse sneaker is one of the most popular models worn by NBA players. Lin's version features his last name on the tongue of each shoe.

The Oregonian provides additional details
.
The Oregon-based company sent out a notice this evening announcing the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse Low iD basketball shoe created for Lin, the New York Knicks point guard who emerged from near oblivion this weekend to fame. 

The $130 shoe won't be available at off-the-shelf retail, but can be created and purchased at the NikeID.com website. Consumers can replicate the exact customization options of Lin's shoe. 
Newsday reported that a Nike spokesman issued a "no comment" when asked whether Nike has plans to produce a signature line for Lin in the future.

Sneaker companies generally reserves signature lines for established stars. All-Stars Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and LeBron James each have signature lines. All-Stars Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade have signature sneakers under the Jordan Brand umbrella.

behind Kyle Lowry and Goran Dragic, and perhaps even behind Jonny Flynn. t was the sort of minor transaction that happens in every N.B.A. preseason, the kind that merits a one-line mention in the local newspaper and  is quickly forgotten. In this case, Morey had unknowingly provided one of the signature lines in Lin’s now -famous profile, as the undrafted, overlooked, twice-waived kid from Harvard.The first waiver was executed

The contract can't be signed until July 11, which is the first day new NBA contracts can be signed. It's also possible, one source said,

by the Golden State Warriors, Lin’s hometown team, two weeks earlier. But it was the Rockets’ decision that indirectly sent Lin to New York, setting in motion a chain of events that would save the Knicks’  season and captivate much of the sports world. Lin’s soon-to-be-legendary streak was just three games old — with averages of 25.3 points and 8.3 assists in victories over the Nets, Utah and Washington — when [url=http://www.monsterbeatstoressus

It is a very funny thing that the sleepier you are, the longer you take about getting to bed; especially if you are lucky enough to have a fire in your room. Jill felt she couldn't even start undressing unless she sat down in front of the fire for a bit first. And once she had sat down, she didn't want to get up again. She had already said to herself about five times, I must go to bed, when she was startled by a tap on the window. She got up, pulled the curtain, and at first saw nothing but darkness. Then she jumped and started backwards, for something very large had dashed itself against the window, giving a sharp tap on the glass as. it did so. A very unpleasant idea came into her head - Suppose they have giant moths in this country! Ugh! But then the thing came back, and this time she was almost sure she saw a beak, and that the beak had made that tapping noise. It's some huge bird, thought Jill. Could it be an eagle? She didn't very much want a visit even from an eagle, but she opened the window and looked out. Instantly, with a great whirring noise, the creature alighted on the window-sill and stood there filling up the whole window, so that Jill had to step back to make room for it. It was the Owl. Hush, hush! Tu-whoo, tu-whoo, said the Owl. Don't make a noise. Now, are you two really in earnest about what you've got to do? About the lost Prince, you mean? said Jill. Yes, we've got to be. For now she remembered the Lion's voice and face, which she had nearly forgotten during the feasting and story-telling in the hall. Good! said the Owl. Then there's no time to waste. You must get away from here at once. I'll go and wake the other human. Then I'll come back for you. You'd better change those court clothes and put on something you can travel in. I'll be back in two twos. Tu-whoo! And without waiting for an answer, he was gone. If Jill had been more used to adventures, she might have doubted the Owl's word, but this never occurred to her: and in the exciting idea of a midnight escape she forgot her sleepiness. She changed back into sweater and shorts there was a guide's knife on the belt of the shorts which might come in useful - and added a few of the things that had been left in the room for her by the girl with the willowy hair. She chose a short cloak that came down to her knees and had a hood,a few handkerchiefs and a comb. Then she sat down and waited. She was getting sleepy again when the Owl returned. Now we're ready, it said. You'd better lead the way, said Jill. hyd

Thursday night Big East recap

 

As recent economic reports fan fears and paint a dim jobs picture in the US and Europe, economists are predicting the worst economic recovery in the post-World War era. Policy-makers around the globe have put creating jobs on as their top agenda. It was also a hot topic at the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Latin America, held last week in the beautiful seaside town of Puerto Vallarta.At the Young Global Leader (YGL) Annual Summit that took place alongside the WEF meeting, President Felipe Caldron of Mexico, himself a YGL from the class of 1997, shared his vision on channeling long-dated pension assets into infrastructure investments, with an aim to create economic growth and jobs.In the aftermath of the global crisis, advanced and emerging economies diverge in many areas. The Euro zone has been dealing with banking and sovereign debt crises. In the US, the government and private debt, as well as slow-recovering job market dominate the market sentiment. India is dealing with its perpetual poverty and income disparity challenges, while uk is trying to beef up its domestic demand.In all these countries, however, infrastructure development is seen as a key driver that could create jobs in the near terms and build a platform for growth in the future. McKinsey projected that $8 trillion will be committed in Asia over the next decade to infrastructure projects to remedy historical underinvestment and to accommodate the explosion in demand. The World Bank put the annual infrastructure deficit in Africa at $93 billion.So why is a major global infrastructure expansion not happening?At a well-attended WEF lunch discussion on infrastructure investments chaired by my good friend Reuben Abraham from India School of Business, I shared with the audience some of my views on this question.The biggest challenge today is the lack of long-termism and excessive reliance on liquidity in capital deployment. Take Asia as an example. In developing Asia, the savings rate is about 37%, far above the level of infrastructure investment that is needed at 20%. Asia's sovereign wealth funds manage over $1,200 billion of assets, and government pension assets in Asia exceed $1,500 billion. However, infrastructure project finance receives very little funding from these sources. zby

Then I nike mercurial sl learned what those papers were, and that my father edited one of them.My father was most loving and indulgent, devoted to his home, seldom leaving us, except in the hunting season. He adidas adizero f50 prime was a great hunter, I have been told, and a celebrated shot. Next to his family he loved his dogs and gun. His hospitality was great, almost to a fault, and he seldom came cheap nike soccer cleats home without bringing a guest. His special pride was the big garden where, it was said, he raised the finest watermelons and strawberries in the county; and to me he brought the cheap adidas soccer cleats first ripe grapes and the choicest berries. I remember his caressing touch as he led me from tree to tree, from vine to vine, and his eager delight in whatever pleased me. He was mercurial vapor superfly iii a famous story-teller; after I had acquired language he used to spell clumsily into my hand his cleverest anecdotes, and nothing pleased him more than to have me adidas f50 adizero trx fg leather repeat them at an opportune moment.I was in the North, enjoying the last beautiful days of the summer of 1896, when I heard the news of nike ctr360 maestri elite my father's death. He had had a short illness, there had been a brief time of acute suffering, then all was over. This was my first adizero f50 prime great sorrow--my first personal experience with death.How shall I write of my mother? She is so near to me that it almost seems nike mercurial vapor superfly indelicate to speak of her. For a long time I regarded my little sister as an intruder. I knew that I had ceased to be my adidas f50 adizero white mother's only darling, and the thought filled me with jealousy. She sat in my mother's lap constantly, where I used to sit, nike mercurial vapor 3 and seemed to take up all her care and time. One day something happened which seemed to me to be adding insult to injury.At that time I had adidas f50 blue a much-petted, much-abused doll, which I afterward named Nancy. She was, alas, the helpless victim of my outbursts of temper and of nike mercurial purple affection, so that she became much the worse for wear. I had dolls which talked, and cried, and opened and shut their eyes; yet I never loved one of them as I loved poor cheap soccer shoes Nancy. PZZ

Nike selling $130 Jeremy Lin shoes

Resonably priced?  lol.....Leave it to Nike to swoop in and make tons of money on a fad they had nothing to do with.  So here is the real question..What percentage does Lin get?  Nikes real "signature" models all include a pretty high level of sponsoship between Nike and the player, so did they work out a deal with Lin?  Is he getting paid good money?  I doubt it.

(quote from another site: Lin's only endorsement deal is with Nike which pays him little. Most NBA shoe contracts are for very small amounts of cash or just merchandise for all but the game's stars)  So Nike does not consider Lin to be a "star" as far as paying him, but I bet they are selling just as many of "his" shoes as they are the real "stars" who are getting paid tons from nike. 

Maybe the title of this should read:  Nike once again takes advantage of a young Asian for profit.


NEVER BUY NIKE!!!!!
