Knowing that Tim Tebow was one of the most famous players in college football history, it’s no surprise to see how popular he is as he makes his transition into the NFL. Tebow creates lines when he’s signing autographs (even at a cost of $100+ per signing), and his Denver Broncos jersey has been the league’s top seller. As if that wasn’t enough evidence, we’re discovering that pretty much any gear with his name attached will cause a frenzy.
Nike released 500 limited edition Tim Tebow cross training shoes on its online store and they sold out in 15 minutes. They also released the shoes at three different locations: Nike Town New York, Nike Town Denver, and the new Nike store in Santa Monica. According to a sales rep at the Nike store in Santa Monica, the shoes sold out within two hours of the doors opening Friday, which also happened to be the grand opening.
In an effort to keep the Tebow hunger alive, the nike store online scattered the release of the Tebow shoes and t-shirt. The “Tebow Knows” shirt was released later in the day Friday and is still available in XL and XXL sizes, although likely not for long. Maybe some commercials similar to Bo Knows are forthcoming, but the point is clear: Tim Tebow is one of the most popular athletes around and fans demand his stuff. I wonder how long this will last if Tebow’s NFL career becomes unsuccessful.
