Ok, so I know Nike built it's newest Factory in Brazil in all, but I've always asked myself, "why do you never hear about Nike heads from Africa, or anywhere south of the boarder??" I met one dude from mexico who was all about Adidas, but that was it. On my two trips to Mexico I didn't see one shop that carried Nike, but I'm sure they do in the right places. I realize a lot these countries are poor, but do the wealthy not rock a pair of SB's or Jay's either?? Are you telling me they have Jordan's in Isreal, but not Jordan? I mean there has got to be at least one person in Africa rocking a new fresh pair of Tiffany

I think Africans have more to worry about i.e Civil War, Genocide, car bombings, village burnings, ethnic cleansing, poverty, food, AIDs, water, corrupt government etc... Unless you live in say South Africa, Egypt or country not enduring any of the above conditions.

South Africa and most of the more southern part of Africa suffers from the AID's epidemic. Truth is every country in Africa has a wealthy class, but do they not like Nike??

I was un Nigeria in 2006 and my uncle is very wealthy even compared to Western standards and my cousins shop at the mall where they have Timberlands (shoes not the boots) nikes, pumas,adidas, reeboks and jordans.

But they are not "shoe heads" they are just average kids just like other people in this part of the world who don't collect trainers. They have about 5 or 6 pairs which they rotate and wear until they have to buy new ones. Its hard to be a " shoe head" when your country can go into civil war and if your leader is taking billions of dollars and putting it in his Swiss account so that when he is overthrown he and his family are good.

Plus I damn well know 99% of you won't ship shoes to my cousin in Nigeria. . .

I think its a difference in culture, if you are wealthy in the poor parts of africa, then you like to make it obvious. So rather than spend money on nikes that nobody will appreciate, they spend it on roberto cavalli and bling.
