Day 272/366 – Bride + Groom JUMPMAN their way into Sole Collector magazine!
Name: Jerry Lau

Graduated from: University of Portland with a Finance Degree • Occupation: Business Planner in Global Footwear at NIKE.
Jerry’s passion for kicks: started around 6th grade when he got his first pair of Nike’s for the school year. He put them to good use while playing lots of basketball (go Portland Trail Blazers!) and tennis (Andre Agassi was his idol). Jerry pretty much grew up in the backyard of NIKE…he fell in love with the brand via sports, commercials, inspiring stories, etc. He is super grateful to be working where he is today!
Back in February 2011, Jerry became engaged to the love of his life…Tiffany! He brought along a pair of matching Air Jordan 2010’s to their “Save the Date” photo shoot. He was lucky enough to sneak an experimental shot in there…he instructed his wife to try the Jumpman pose in spirit of their fancy kicks. Jerry and Tiffany landed it in one try; it was the winning shot and sent out to family and friends to announce their upcoming wedding. Jerry also sent the photo off to Sole Collector magazine. He received a call from a friend at Nike a few months later…”I see you in Sole Collector!” Jerry was super pumped. It was a very special (and lucky) moment shared with his wonderful wife!
