NIKE MOVES AIR JORDAN RELEASE; WHAT TO DO WITH EMPTY SHOES?

          Nike announced plans to move all future release dates
     of its Air Jordans to non-school days in an effort to curb 
     students skipping school.  The next release, the third color
     of the Air Jordan 13, which was scheduled for Wednesday,
     March 25, has been moved to Saturday, March 28 (Nike).
          STORES STUFFED? An SGB report says that there are "more
     than seven million pairs of athletic footwear landing on
     U.S. soil without having been sold into retail."  According
     to insiders, five of the seven million are Nike shoes, and
     the report says that a "major national discount chain" has
     agreed to buy an undisclosed number of Nike Air Max Triax
     running shoes -- normally priced over $100 -- and will
     retail them for $30.  Nike Dir of Investor Relations Rick
     Anguilla also said that Nike will open 15 more outlet stores
     by May, bringing the total to 55 in the U.S. (SGB, 2/25).
