Simone Biles and Alison Felix have both signed with Athleta. Very interesting as Athleta is trying to position itself as a performance line now.

Athleta is part of The Gap brand family

Allyson Felix left Nike after they dropped her contract while she was pregnant. Nike, until then, was notorious for dropping women athletes when they became pregnant. Women athletes don't get shoes (while I know at least one woman has had a Nike shoe it pales in comparison) and I am sure the money is nowhere near the same.

So I don't blame them for taking their likeness where it will be better appreciated.

Kobe was developing his own shoe before he died on last year. Because, he decided Nike wasn't taking his shoe as a priority.
