Published March 10, 1998
Officials at Jordan Brand, Michael Jordan's Nike division, say that the original Air Jordan sneakers which Jordan wore on Sunday may be released again, according to USA TODAY. Erin Patton, Dir of the Jordan Brand: "While the future growth of the Jordan Brand will be fueled by new product introductions, we will seek opportunities to supplement our core product offerings with retro footwear and apparel to satisfy the tremendous global appeal for Michael's vintage products." Patton said that no timetable is set for the re-release (USA TODAY, 3/10). SILENT KNIGHT? In Chicago, Phil Rosenthal details a scene in the upcoming film, "The Big One," by Michael Moore. Moore sits down and asks Nike Chair Phil Knight about the "12-year old workers" in Nike's overseas plants. Rosenthal notes that Knight "corrects him pointedly" by replying, "Fourteen." Rosenthal: "It's a proud moment for everyone" (Phil Rosenthal, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 3/10).
