Its quality vs quantity. If you want a big name with poorly made product, choose Nike.

You needed a website to tell you that?

Nike was founded in 1964, Under Armour 1996. For the non-math majors here, that's 32 years difference.

NO DUH Nike is a larger company, and doing better in the stock market, outlet stores, etc. And no DUH that whomever the interview was done on in that website said that Under Armour isn't #2 in shoe's...they're not, and they're not even close. New Balance, Adidas, and Asics are all probably ahead of them.

You're searching anything and everything to find a logical reason that Nike is better than Under Armour and still coming up short.

Nike & Under Armour is exactly like Coke & Pepsi. The only reason it's better is personal preference. There is nothing wrong with either company, or their product other than what the consumer prefers.

You can quit searching for a scientific reason that Nike is 100 times better than Under Armour because you won't find one. And I can't wait until we sign that contract (either new, or extension) with Under Armour in 2016 just because of people like you.


*PS: The website you linked was talking about in the market, not in the quality of it's products - or the popularity of it's products.

Nope, sorry you're wrong. You asked for proof, I gave it to you and you still want something to debate about. So I'm just going to leave it alone. You're worse than a woman on her rag.

Scientific proof, not market analysis of companies that were created 32 years apart.

I also gave you a link of scientific proof earlier in the thread about nikes newest uniform innovation. Something you'll see UA try and duplicate 5 years from now.

Hahaha...okay, you're right. Whatever. Soooooo right. Sooooooooooooo right. Nike is 100000000000000000000000 times better than Under Armour. I hope we sign a deal with Under Armour through 999999999.

If you like Nike that much better, be a Clemson Tiger fan.


What you provided as evidence is a market analysis of the stocks, and a link to the new Oregon uniforms...

And you think that wins the argument....BAHA..ok......."you win" if you really think so.

Question: What do you think our current uniforms don't have that this does? And yes, I'm being serious....


The fact that you won't just accept that Nike and Under Armour's difference are in consumer preference is astonishing. There is no scientific fact out there that shows Nike being the safer, better product out there. Because IF THERE WERE, the price of Nike would be significantly higher than the price of Under Armour not only on the shelves of stores but in the stock market. It's hilarious that you are searching so hard for a reason...and because of this hilarity, I will continue to keep you searching.

2. Nike makes Jordan's for God sakes.

3. UA isn't appealing at all.
Not to jump into a pissing contest here, but you really lost credibility with this post.

Not marketable??? Yeah, Click-Clack.

When MJ was in his hay day Nike was the no brainier company to sign with, hence why Nike makes Jordan's. That really is irrelevant in this debate.

Not appealing is simply a personal preference. Which is fine. But again not really relevant here.

I love the fact that a Nike homer posts a press release from a Nike website about the only school that Nike actually gives two shits about, Oregon.

Heath said it himself best when he expounded about walking into a nike store & realizing that the only NCAA FB gear they had was Oregon, besides FSU and Auburn national championship items. This was in Nevada, btw, not Oregon itself.

If your school mascot isn't a duck, UA > Nike all day.

idk what some of you are thinking but I would rather wear UA stuff than Nike. I have workout apparel from both and my UA gear out performs my nike stuff. I stopped buying nike shoes because they dont last long.

Point of this article? To prove if you have a huge headstart your business is bigger?

How can you be worth 2.26 billion and not be marketable?

I've always felt UA products out performed Nike products, whether it be in looks, comfort, etc. I would take UA products over Nike all day. Personal preference means to me UA products have more value to me.

Right, not to mention the benefits of sponsoring some of our athletes after they go pro. For example, Marcus Lattimore.
