In October of 2015 we learned that Nike Chairman Phil Knight would be releasing his memoir Shoe Dog: A Memoir By The Creator Of Nike. Today the book officially hit shelves, so if you’re interested in buying a copy you can do so now.
Knight recently appeared on CNBC’s Squawk on the Street to talk about his memoir and he revealed something that surprised us all. Being the Chairman and co-founder of one of the biggest brands in the world and the largest sneaker brand in the world, you would assume that he has thousands of shoes in his collection. Wrong. While being interviewed on the show Knight revealed that he actually has a very small amount of sneakers.
“I have about 50 pairs of sneakers in my closet,” Knight said in an interview on CNBC. “I have a small closet.”
Say what?!?! Who would have thought. I guess we really do learn something new every day. His reasoning for not owning thousands of pairs? He says he only has two feet. Makes sense, I guess.
So not only does Phil Knight own only 50 pairs of sneakers, but he also plans on giving away his $25 billion fortune to charity??
