|Further Information of Nike Cortez
For enthusiast and running people, Nike Cortez stood for classic. In October 14, Bowman wrote a letter to Netsuke, said " sports footwear you made for me in July of exceeded my expectations in most aspects, this type of sports shoes was better than things i asked for". Bowman was helping Tiger tested all kinds of sports footwear and provided feedbacks just at that time. About Bowman's own style of training shoes,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], he expressed that a top runner who runs for some time distance and also the record can achieve to 1 thousand and 500 miles.
Although he did not mention the name,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], Bowman referred to Kenny Moore. As sales contract and letters showed on May 21,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], 1966, it can be known that 3 hundred pairs of TG24 "w/Mexico products series" that created by Bowman were bought by the Blue Ribbon Sports Company, and the series were loaded and transported on May 21,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], 1966.
Athletic shoes that were designed and finished by Bowman catered for the summer Olympics held in Mexico right in that year. There were enough time for Blue Ribbon Sports Company and Tiger to create a promotion of TG-24 to master athletes all around the global when it was time which was prior to the Olympics, which was held in 1968. But they must give this kind of athletic shoes a far more marketable name.
The four great events were named the Olympic Games,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], the Asian games, pan American games in addition to Commonwealth Games within the 1960s. "Mexican products lines" specified for for the 1968 Mexico Olympics. Bill Bowman's design,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], the "Mexican products lines" was considered to be Tiger's first type of running shoes of "Mexican products". Blue Ribbon Sports Company posted the mail advertising and also the new name of the shoes was "Mexico" on January 30,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], 1967. This type of shoes was retailed for $ 9.95. We are able to know in the description of merchandise that this was Tiger's first style shoes of Mexico footwear products. In 1965, america have tested the shoes, along with a distance of over 2,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych],500 miles can be finished by athletes by putting on it.
This kind of athletic shoes were endowed with a brand new name, that was "Aztec" in April 1967. The name appeared in the advertisement of Blue Ribbon Sports Company as well as mailing shoots of the company. The advertisement said that the predecessor of this type of running shoes was 'Mexico', which aimed to become the earth's most prominent long-distance running training shoes.
For American athletes that were engaged in running for very long distance, Aztec that has the function of shock absorption was thought to be a new product. Consequently,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], it soon turned into the best-selling training shoes of Blue Ribbon Sports Company and Tiger. But Aztec was accused by Adidas Company of infringing upon Adidas's"Azteca Gold",[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], which was a title of track shoes. Therefore, Tiger Aztec was facing the fate to alter its name once more.
