Did Nik Wallenda obtain a Nike Endorsement ?

While I was watching Nik Wallenda do his walk, I never heard any comment from the reporters re whatever brand of outer wear he chose to wear for his walk. 

I am still wondering why he would not obtain a Nike endorsement - after all, Nike has a reputation for paying big money to athletes/sports figures to endorse their products.

I am not up on fashion myself, so although perhaps some viewers could probably tell the brand in some of the close-up views , I have no idea what brand he wore.  Whatever it was, it had to provide him with adequate protection from water spray & wind and ease of movement while maintaining a comfortable body temperature.

Seems to me, it is not too late for the company that made the jacket and pants that he wore to make a deal with Nik to feature some of his walk photos/video clips in ads.


The following website has a large picture of Nik putting on Nike's footwear after he completed the crossing so maybe he did have a Nike endorsement contract or sponsor.  If he didn't, Nike should contact him to arrange a contract with him after they see this photo.  I even think that could be a Nike swoosh on his jacket in this photo.

When Wallenda finished his Niagara Falls crossing, he removed his aerialist footwear and put on a pair of thick-soled Nike walking shoes.
