During a recent earnings call, Nike CEO Mark Parker declared that the footwear titan will kick off a “moderately” priced footwear focus for 2019. The news directly follows the details which emerged stating that the company beat its second-quarter expectations with an 10-percent increase in sales, due to an increased digital presence.

Parker also noted that with an opportunity for “moderately priced” options, the focus will see a combination of selling cheaper versions of popular models and new shoes at a lower price point. The new focus aims to create a line of core options. According to Business Insider, he also said Nike would improve the “storytelling” around these cheaper models.

Notably, during the call, Parker also revealed plans to launch a men’s yoga clothing line, and the integration of RFID chips that will help shoe collectors with keeping up with their collection.
