Designer Database | Eric Avar

The time has come to profile one of my favourite designers to be associated with #Nike. Considered by many to be the most influential designer of the past decade, Eric Avar initially planned to follow in his father's career footsteps as a mechanical engineer. As history would relate, however, whilst working at Athlete's Foot in the late 1980's he was completely beguiled by his first encounter with a designer's diagram of a Nike Air Stab. So grabbed by what he had seen he persuaded the dean at Rochester Institute of Technology to let him specialise in the subject of shoe design. The rest is history. From there he spent a six month period working for Adidas before joining the ranks at Nike. Now as Innovation Kitchen Creative Director of Special Projects, Avar has taken the lead of bringing Nike's latest technological innovations and applying them to creating a better performing product.
