Want to poach Under Armour's lead designer for your team? Just do it. That seems to be how Nike saw their hiring of Dave Dombrow, the Senior Vice President of design at Under Armour.

Dombrow started with Under Armour in 2010 and was responsible for the sneakers that saw Under Armour grow into a household name, including Steph Curry's signature shoes and Cam Newton's cleats.

Even though Dombrow has left the UA building, it looks like it will be a while before we see his influence on any Swoosh-bearing sneaks, or even if he has taken a role of similar responsibility at Nike, as it's being reported that he will have to have a year of down-time while he waits out his non-compete clause.
