Phil Knight Gave Stephen Colbert A Very Personal Pair of Nike Sneakers*~

Nike co-founder Phil Knight's press tour for his newly published book Shoe Dog continued last night with a stop by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Laced up in his go-to Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 31 sneakers, Knight took the stage to share a few of the stories from his memoir, briefly touching on the origins of the waffle sole and the "Banned" Air Jordan 1 campaign. The interview concluded with Knight presenting Colbert with a gift, a custom pair of Nike Air Prestos, which he described as the life of Stephen Colbert on a pair of shoes. The runners are adorned by an all-over print inspired by Colbert's path to the Late Show, with symbols tying back to his mother, siblings and political interests. Check out the video below
