Ian Ginoza's title is (deep breath) Global Footwear Product Director Nike Sportswear Special Projects. Hard to fit on one line of a résumé, especially one as chock-full of accomplishments as Ginoza's is—he formerly played a similar role at Converse (where he established the First String program), and before that was on the retail side, founding both Hawaii's KICKS/HI and Chicago's St. Alfred. As someone who has much experience on both sides, he has a unique perspective that is exceedingly valuable.
