    Lots of companies are allowed to make ISU apparel. Under Armour, Nike, Adidas, Tailgate, etc...

    Are they aloud to make those? That's quiet the question...

    The misspelling was so blatant that it is almost more embarassing that you felt you had to point it out.

    as far as I understand yes, the only deal we have with Nike is with all Iowa State athletic uniforms, everything else is just off licenses

    Why is it ironic? I'm not the spelling police.

    Thanks for pointing out that we misspelled 'allowed' and 'embarrasing'... Big day out of you.

    No school is stupid enough to lock their logo into an exclusive deal with one brand or producer, nor is any producer or brand stupid enough to pay that much. Think about the success of stores like Dogtown and T-Galaxy and all the non-nike ISU stuff they produce, and how many places across the country there are like this in every single college town. If Nike had such exclusive rights could the bookstore even sell those just block print "Iowa State" shirts without it being approved by Nike? It seems ludicrous to think that Nike would control the ISU brand as such.
    If you're thinking exclusive apparal deals those are done with the athletic departments for every sport for what the student athletes wear in practice and competition, then those still are kind of rare. Nike had paid a lot to have such deals with Michigan and CU and it didn't really pay off so it has faded out of style. I mean Nike doesn't even sponsor every sport completely at ISU (softball, swimming, wrestling).

    I do, too. But, I'm kind of a Nike snob. If it had the swoosh under the front, I would probably have already paid through Paypal...

    As bad as that sounds, I am the same way. But, its not just because of Nike, but more of not liking adidas as much. I don't know what it is, but I'm more of a fan of the swoosh than the 3 stripes. But, I agree, if that was made by Nike with the exact same design, I would have paid through paypal as well.
    It's amazing at how far that swoosh goes into marketing.

    No, what's ironic is someone pointing out a spelling mistake and making one while doing it. That is quite ironic.

    I'm the opposite. If it has a swoosh everybody else has it.
