Nike, the world’s largest manufacturer of athletic shoes, is shifting its attention for sales to Asia and especially China. With success, tells Shaun Rein BusinessWeek:

Chief Executive Officer Mark Parker is counting on China and emerging markets to provide the most growth over the next five years as Nike gets 65 percent of sales outside North America. The company has widened its lead in China over Adidas AG by expanding in cities beyond Beijing and Shanghai, said analyst Shaun Rein. 

“As consumers are getting w here they are buying special items for the gym, for the weekend, for going out,” Rein, managing director of China Market Research Group in Shanghai, said in a phone interview today. “Nike are doing the best because they have the best brand loyalty.”
