The Nike Killings

THE HITTITE EMPIRE play “THE NIKE KILLER” was inspired by the Nike killings across America, in the early 90s. Teenagers would shoot one another, and take their NIKE shoes off their victims, along with their sports jackets.
It was our hope, that this play would, motivate the Nike Company and M. Jordan, to bring down the price of NIKE Shoes. Allowing for their value to decrease. The NIKE company and Jordan never brought down their pricing. The killings continued. Because of poor kids wanting NIKE shoes. In order to get respect, and admiration in the hood.
