globalization of a Nike sneaker
The rubber is one of the materials used for the majority of shoe's sole and originates in Taiwan.
The nylon is used for the laces of the shoes and originates in Japan.
The polyurethane makes up the out sole, or very bottom, of the shoe and originates in Kunming, Yunnan, China.
The cotton is used for the outside fabric and originates in Chifeng, Inner Mongolia, China.
The leather is used for the design and tougher parts of the vamp, or upper part, and originates in Texas, USA.
The plastic is used for protection of parts of the shoe and originates in Hotan, Xinjiang, China.
A problem with technological globalization is that new technologies brought into countries that manufacture products may be too complicated for the workers to use. Nike shoes are primarily made in poorer countries so the workers may not know how to work new technology.
Companies may take the resources from other countries making the effected country no economically diverse. Nike may take a lot of the cotton from China to make their shoes and leave Chifeng with no diversification.
A problem with cultural globalization is that countries can lose their unique culture and change it to another countries culture. A country that generally wears other shoes than Nike may lose that unique style to wearing different shoes.
A problem with environmental globalization is that the changes done to a countries environment could be harmful. This retains to a Nike shoe because the polyurethane that's used in the sole can be dangerous to the effected ecosystems.
A solution to this problem is to use more Eco-friendly materials so the environment the manufacturing is taking place in will be will be environmentally healthy.
