Under Armour exploded onto the scene in the 2000’s and now sits right up top with Nike and Adidas. Their ability to stay at the top once Nike and Adidas started producing similar apparel items is where you can see the importance of marketing. Under Armours marketing strategy takes a different look at things, “Rather than focusing on being aspirational or simply inspirational, the brand focuses on conveying the message that you must work hard to achieve your goals — a methodology that certainly sees benefits, whether you 're an athlete, a businessman, or a sportswear company from Baltimore.” (Business Insider, 2015). Sport marketing strategies vary immensely and there is no uniform plan for continued success in this industry. Nike and Adidas have stayed atop the sports apparel world for a
They are known as the basis of its short-term and long-term strategic direction. STRENGTHS o Product Innovation In the competitive world, innovation is a crucial determinant of sustainability. Nike, Inc. has always been successful and is regarded as one of the pioneers to introduce various enthralling products. With the constantly evolving and innovative product range, it has solidified its position as one of the leading brands in the apparel and footwear industry.

This is because the Treaty of Versailles was an imperfect agreement that punished Germany too much and negatively affected both Germany and Europe in physical, political, and financial ways. The physical alterations of German land by the treaty led to the expanding displeasure of the German people. As Macmillan (2001) mentions, many echoed similar opinions; "why should Germany lose 13% of its territory and 10% of its population?" As a result of the treaty, Germany lost its overseas colonies, Alsace-Lorraine, Poland, and more. Henig (1995) states that, "the Germans never accepted that they had suffered defeat".
There was a revelation of sweatshop working conditions in these countries and this challenged Nike’s business opportunities. From then onwards, Nike had a number of ethical issues; for instance in Vietnam there was the violation of working hours and minimum wage. In addition, there was the use of child labor in Cambodia and Malaysia in addition to forced labor. Nonetheless, the company took full responsibility by recognizing their inherent social responsibilities. According to Dutton, “The company took immediate steps to correct the situation, implementing a code of social responsibility throughout its supply chain that improved working conditions for some 800,000 employees at 700 factories in 52 countries” (Dutton, 2012).
We can see many large corporations that outsource all of their production, for example, Nike. Nike was under a large amount of scrutiny after they were exploited for their poor factory conditions.

The article, “The Myth of the Ethical Shopper” suggests that these corporations are not aware of the specific factory their products are produced. Large corporations, such as Nike, Disney, and Wal-Mart, purchase their products through mega suppliers.
