,Are you running out of time to buy extraordinary running shoes? Don't look
for other brand because Adidas introduces a shoe that will totally satisfy
your taste - it's the Adidas Men's a3 Gigaride Running Shoes.Why must you
buy this one against the other brand? Apparently, this shoe is excellently
unique - it has a midsole that is properly fabricated for you to experience
contentment due to its relaxing quality- your feet seem to lie and rest on
a floppy pillow.And for you to utilize the shoe more than you expected it
to last, the outer sole of the Adidas Men's a3 Running Shoes is in carbon
type. This enables you to use the shoe longer enough. It is durable that it
can stand wear and tear.Its forefoot is characterized in a3 fashion to let
your feet feel the fresh air and avoid having stinky feet.,Shoes are not only
for our feet but also for the eyes of others people. So Adidas design this
a3 Gigaride Running Shoe with a striking new look - not the common thing like
the other brands.The shoe is patterned in so many color combination - white
and gray; gray and yellow; black and red; black and white; white and brown;
and pure white. And to assure you of beauty, Adidas designate a simple lace
to let you manipulate it freely without delay.The lightness of the Adidas
Men's a3 Gigaride Running Shoe push you to run as fast as you want and wherever
you want which will definitely make you feel like flying.,,Soccer training
equipment can make a considerable amount of difference in the quality of
soccer you play. A company like Adidas with so many years of selling experience
needed a Loughborough University as research partners to design the infamous
"Jabulani" soccer ball which was used in the World Cup. Even with so much
research and care taken to offer the best ball, there were controversies,
and many great players had asked for a change in the ball. You have to give
due importance to your kit - period.Soccer is a highly technical sport that
demands a great deal from a player to rise up the rungs. It is a progressive
game, and players have to understand about their kit. They need to know what
they have to add to their soccer training equipment and what is to be
discarded. The best way to go about it is to understand two essential
components; one is what and how to complete the soccer kit, and the second
is to understand what would be a vital addition that can make you a better
player.Some Essential Guidelines When Buying A Soccer KitA simple rule of
thumb is to try out new technology products released by big brands from online
soccer stores. There is very little risk, and quality is not an issue at all.
The best part of the deal is that you are likely to get matching T-shirts,
cleats, soccer ball, shorts, and stockings. It essentially completes the kit
you would need to start professional soccer. Additional items indoor soccer
shoes, or portable goals can be bought if required.Items That Make A
Difference In The Soccer KitIt is not difficult to understand that soccer
players have a definite preference in say the best soccer shoes or cleats
available. If a pair of soccer shoes released from a leading brand is not
tested, a player may miss out on the chance to reduce the learning curve.
The ideal way to go about it is to test those shoes when you need to buy a
new pair, either because you have outgrown the earlier pair of they just wore
out. You need to, of course, ensure the shoes are lighter than the ones you
earlier had. Complete soccer training equipment can be bought at online soccer
stores in one go to completely do away with the problem of mismatch. A major
advantage is that you would always find the latest on offer or get exactly
what you need at massive discounts.,,If you fancy going to the gym, playing
tennis or any other strenuous sporting activities, then women's tennis shoes
is a definite must-have in your wardrobe. Tennis shoes are usually made of
flexible materials with rubber soles designed to provide the ultimate
comfort. There are a lot of shoes made for tennis sold in stores. Some are
quite expensive since they are branded. While there are custom-made ones which
usually are advisable if you have a small shoe size or you can't find a pair
that's right for the shape of your feet.You may think that buying or choosing
the right pair of shoes is a tricky matter. However, that is not really the
case. Choosing the perfect women's tennis shoes is as easy as 1-2-3 if you
follow these simple tips. First, try not to have a one-track mind. This is
especially true where the brand of the shoes is concerned. Big name branded
shoes such as Nike and Adidas don't necessarily mean that they are more durable
than ordinary shoes. It doesn't matter what brand a pair of tennis shoes carry
so long as it serves its purpose and is functional.Secondly, choose the shoes
that are right for your foot type and don't forget to check the sturdiness
of the shoes' heel box since this keeps your feet in control while you're
playing. Next, check the flexibility of the women's tennis shoes. Make sure
that the shoes bend effortlessly, have proper cushioning, and are shock
absorbent. Also check on the outsole and toe guard of the shoes since these
determine the pair's resilience.Knowing which surface you mostly play in is
vital too. Most importantly, check to see if your feet fit properly in the
upper portion of the women's tennis shoes since it's the upper part of the
shoes which protect your feet from unanticipated injuries. The bottom line
is when you buy shoes; go for comfort and protection above anything
else.,,Dynamic, diverse, and driven are a few words that come to mind when
attempting to describe Erick Haskell, COO of Greater China for the Adidas
Group. But, truth is, even these bold adjectives do not do justice nor come
close to painting the collective picture of this accomplished, well-traveled
family man. Furthermore, his unique approach to life and business pursuits
has led to success at each of his domestic and overseas stops.Mr. Haskell
best summarized his drive and approach to life over the past 30 years,
recalling a quote from his fourth grade teacher, Mr. Christensen:"You can
never get back a wasted moment."And his life and career certainly embody this
simple, yet profound, motto.Born in Silicon Valley, Erick Haskell grew up
in Southern California. After a quick return to Northern California and a
stop in Omaha, he went to high school near Denver. He attended George
Washington University for his undergrad, George Mason University for a
Master's in International Trade and Finance, and The University of Chicago
for a Master's in Business Administration. His career has seen stops in
Washington, Minneapolis, San Juan, Miami, San Francisco, Phoenix, Tianjin,
and Shanghai. He has spent much of his career cultivating and furthering
business interests across the globe, and more specifically in Latin America
and the Far East (China).Oh, and did I mention that he also runs marathons.
So apropos. In fact he recently ran his personal best in Beijing (2:59, but
who's counting), and he is training for the 2012 Boston marathon. From
stocking shelves to powering start-up companies to managing business lines
and serving as CFO or COO for three companies, Erick has a wealth of experience
and diversity.And the story isn't over. Not even close. Erick is moving
forward at full throttle, not wanting to waste a single moment.In the
interview below, Erick Haskell and I discuss business and life in China,
career diversity, and work abroad, amongst other topics. Enjoy.Andrew
Nyquist: What did you do for fun growing up? And can you share a few
memories?Erick Haskell: As a kid, all I cared about was sports. Although I
played virtually every sport at some point, my real love was baseball. Growing
up in Southern California, we could play year around and would do so virtually
every day until the sun went down. I was the captain of my high school baseball
team in Colorado, where we nearly won a state championship.Andrew: Do you
have a favorite sports team(s)?Erick: My favorite sports teams are a
reflection of the many moves that I have done over the years. I am a big
supporter of the Denver Broncos, Chicago Bulls, and San Francisco
Giants.Andrew: What was your first job in high school? And first job out of
college?Erick: Perhaps presaging my future career in retail and consumer
goods, my first job in high school was stocking the shelves in the toy
department at the Target in Littleton, Colorado.Out of college, I was very
fortunate to join an innovative start-up company called Seed Capital
Development Fund, which was one of the pioneers in microfinance. Although
microfinance is relatively well recognized now, it was virtually unheard of
in the early 1990's. We specialized in making investments in financial
institutions in Latin America that in turn lent money to poor entrepreneurs.
It served as a great foundation for the rest of my career.Andrew: When did
you decide on your current profession or arena of interest, and how did that
come about?Erick: Ever since a month-long backpacking trip across Europe on
the trains following my high school graduation, I've had the desire to live
and work overseas. I enjoy traveling, seeing new places, and learning about
new cultures.I've been lucky that my career has allowed me to travel to dozens
of countries in virtually every part of the world. To be honest, corporate
finance bores me to tears. During nearly 10 years as a CFO for three companies,
it has been working overseas that has made the work interesting and
exciting.Andrew: What drew you to Adidas and further, what drew you to the
opportunity in China?Erick: I landed in China quite by accident. Much of the
first half of my career was spent in Latin America. I had really spent very
little time in Asia. However, a former boss of mine was hired to be CEO of
a large Chinese retail company and he asked me to join the company as CFO.
This was in late 2004 and the buzz about an awakening China was getting very
loud so I jumped at the opportunity. Several years later the company was
successfully sold to an even larger state owned conglomerate.Around this time
I was being recruited to become CFO of Adidas Greater China. After spending
a few years in China, I knew that the brand was extremely strong in the market.
As a lifelong athlete and sports fan, I was drawn to the opportunity of joining
a world class sports company. Also, this was in early 2007 and Adidas had
already secured the right to be the exclusive sporting goods sponsor of the
2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. It was bound to be an exciting ride.Andrew:
How would you describe Adidas corporate culture?Erick: As a company that
strives to be the leading sports brand in the world, you can imagine that
the corporate culture is driven by young, energetic people who like to win.
I have been impressed by the pride that people take in working for a company
that contributes to the success of so many world-class athletes and sports
teams. Although it may sound cliché, a passion for sport really does
permeate the culture at Adidas.Although the company is headquartered in
Germany and has a rich German history extending back nearly a century, the
company is truly global in its reach and its corporate culture. The
headquarters team in Germany, as well as the management of subsidiaries such
as China, is incredibly diverse. This adds to the appeal of the corporate
culture at Adidas.Andrew: Are you seeing more Westerners working and doing
business in China, and further do you see this trend continuing?Erick:
Absolutely. As Western companies continue to enter China to take advantage
of the massive opportunities, you see more westerners working here on either
short term or long term assignments. Also, what may have been somewhat of
a hardship posting several years ago has now become a very desirable
assignment for many Westerners. Compared to when I arrived seven years ago,
the amenities available to Western expats in China have improved
greatly.Andrew: China has been pulling in the credit reigns over the past
year or two in an attempt to cool the economy. Has this affected consumer
spending or trends? And how, if at all, has this impacted Adidas?Erick: Unlike
Americans, the Chinese tend not to finance their daily lives through excess
leverage. The individual savings rate remains near 40% and borrowing for
consumer goods remains very uncommon. Therefore, the recent tightening
measures by the government have not adversely impacted consumer spending -
certainly not at Adidas. The restriction of credit and higher interest rates
has had a much larger impact on sectors such as residential real estate. To
the extent that consumers are beginning to behave cautiously, I would
attribute it to declining real estate prices and the poor performance of the
Chinese equity markets. This paper loss of wealth seems to be creating an
overall sense of caution.Andrew: Who is Adidas target audience in China? And
which sports do Chinese consumers identify with when purchasing Adidas
gear?Erick: Demographically, the typical Adidas consumer in China is not
terribly different from what you would see in the US or Europe. The major
difference is that in China, participation in sports is still relatively low
compared to the West. As a result, Adidas has been more of a lifestyle brand
here. The brand is very popular among the young Chinese and it is not uncommon
to see them wearing Adidas shoes and clothing at school, work, and out on
the street. As sports participation rates rise in China, we expect to see
the proportion of athletic wear to increase, which is a big opportunity for
us in the coming years.As in the rest of the world, many Chinese consumers
associate Adidas with its rich heritage as a soccer brand. This association
is reinforced by our sponsorship and advertising campaigns with athletes like
David Beckham and Lionel Messi. However, in China the growth in popularity
of the NBA has made basketball an even more important business for us.
Adidas-sponsored players like Derrick Rose and Dwight Howard have made
multiple trips to China and have become extremely popular here.Andrew: How
would you characterize the competitive landscape of the sportswear industry
in China?Erick: As is the case in much of the world now, the sportswear
industry in China is a two horse race between Adidas and Nike. Although other
international brands are present in China, they have been eclipsed in recent
years by the emergence of some formidable local Chinese brands. The market
is very dynamic and competition is fierce. The sheer size of the opportunity
ensures that this will be the case for many years to come.Andrew: Name a couple
things that make doing business in China easier than the US? Same question,
but "make doing business more challenging in China."Erick: The pace of growth
in China and the incredible dynamism of the economy can often make doing
business here easier than the US. There is a sense of urgency that makes it
possible to sustainably grow a business at extraordinarily high rates of
growth for multiple years. When I was in business school, I recall hearing
on multiple occasions that it is not sustainable to grow a business more than
30 percent for multiple years. For the five year period between 2004 and 2008,
the Adidas China business grew at an annual average rate of more than 50
percent! In this regard, I feel that China is somehow changing the rules.One
of the limiting factors in China - and one of the challenging elements compared
to doing business in the US - is the ability to find capable talent,
particularly in specialized areas. The combination of the fact that China
has only been participating in the global economy for less than 30 years and
the incredible growth of the economy during this time means that there is
a major shortage of skilled people in key areas. The competition for such
limited resources has led to a true war for talent. Therefore, the acquisition
and retention of talent becomes a critical element of success and is a topic
that consumes a huge amount of time during our senior management
meetings.Andrew: Is the Chinese domestic economy self-sustaining yet, and
how much of China remains untapped potential (for Adidas as well)?Erick: The
Chinese government has struggled to transition the economy from an
investment-driven, export-led model to a robust, consumer-led economy. Their
efforts have been hampered by the persistently high savings rate in China.
The lack of a robust social security infrastructure, including health care,
education, retirement, and housing, have led the Chinese to maintain an
extraordinarily high level of savings, which preclude them from higher levels
of consumer spending. Many businesses, particularly those like Adidas that
are focused on the consumer, hope that government policy will increasingly
focus on bolstering the nascent social welfare system.Geographically, the
government's focus in recent years has been on developing the vast but
relatively sparsely populated west. There have been numerous incentives
designed to encourage investment in China's western provinces. As a result,
the past few years have seen a great deal of the country's manufacturing base
move from the relatively well-developed eastern coastline to the far less
developed western frontier.For Adidas, the geographic focus for the next five
years will be on penetrating lower tier cities. Historically, Adidas' growth
has been primarily in tiers one through three cities. As these cities begin
to reach saturation, tiers four through seven cities will begin seeing rapid
income growth. Therefore, Adidas will aggressively expand into these lower
tier cities to capture the growing opportunity. We currently have around 7,000
monobrand stores in about 600 cities across China. By 2015, we will have stores
in nearly 1,500 Chinese cities.Andrew: How do you entertain yourself on a
weekday night or weekend? Entertainment?Erick: After nearly seven years in
China, the last five of which have been in Shanghai, we have developed a
fantastic group of friends. As with many expat communities, the social scene
is very active. As Shanghai has developed into a truly world class city, we
have seen the emergence of world class restaurants, nightlife, and cultural
amenities. We enjoy gathering with friends and family to sample the new venues
that constantly pop up in the city.Any opinions expressed herein are solely

need to do before you start your jogging program is to get yourself a pair
of good shoes. The shoes are so important that they can either make or they
can break your fitness program. The main reason the shoes are so important
is that they help cushion your feet. They help position your foot in such
a way as to prevent injury.Years ago when I played a lot of tennis, I found
a pair of brand name shoes made specifically for tennis. Yes, the shoes were
expensive, but once I started playing with them I was sold. They were worth
their weight in gold to me. Keep in mind your shoes are the most important
tool you have. Do not scrimp or cut corners here. Remember this is an
investment in your health and fitness. While shoes will be replaced over time
they are critical to your success.Now the real challenge is how to find the
pair that is made for you? There are hundreds, if not thousands of shoes on
the market. Just putting them on in the store and walking for a few minutes
won't really tell you how they will work after being in them for 1 to 5 miles.
If you decide to buy them online you will have even less opportunity to get
the feel of them.Here are a few facts about running shoes to help you out.
Keep in mind that they do not have to be exorbitantly expensive. You should
be able to find a good model for somewhere around $50 - $75. Please don't
focus exclusively on the cost, but remember you do not need a platinum credit
card to buy the pair that will work for you.There are several categories
running shoes are divided into which are: trail running, cross country,
triathlon, cross training and street running. Obviously if you will be running
mostly in the woods, the trail running shoe should be the one for you to start
with. Street running or cross training shoes are the most common, and if you
will be running on concrete or black top you may want to consider this
type.Running shoes are designed for three foot types. The beginning design
is based on the arch of the foot, which will be a low, normal or high arch.
When you go to the store find a sales clerk who can help you sort through
the different types and help you find what will work best for you.You will
also be faced with the plethora of manufacturers. They range from Adidas,
Brooks, Nike, Puma and many others. I would suggest picking a brand name and
looking at an entry level shoe to start out with.When you buy your shoes you
will not have much of an opportunity to get the feel of them. Definitely take
a few walks around the store and see how they feel. If you decide they are
the ones then take them home and try them in the house for a couple of days
before you hit the street. That way you at least have a fighting chance that
they will work well for you. There is nothing worse than being stuck with
a bad pair of shoes and then wearing them because you bought them, only to
injure yourself along the way.You might also want to consider doing a little
online research and see what others are saying about the particular brands.
There is a lot of science involved in shoe design and the manufacturers are
always coming up with some type of improvement. Make a list of what features
you want to try, and find the shoe that has those features.Here you have some
of what you will need to know to go out and get started on your first run.,
I feel that China is somehow changing the rules, truth is, and more
specifically in Latin America and the Far East (China), During nearly 10 years
as a CFO for three companies, Just putting them on in the store and walking
for a few minutes won't really tell you how they will work after being in
