The company with a logo of a yellow shoe with wings is the Goodyear Tire and Rubber company. The logo is officially known as the Wingfoot symbol within the company and around the world.
The owner and founder of Goodyear came up with the idea after seeing a statue of the Roman god Mercury. The Wingfoot has evolved over the years, in both size and style. Even with its evolution, the Wingfoot remains fixated in the center of the Goodyear Tires and Rubber logo. Mercury's winged foot was selected because of the god's association with speed and being the herald of good news.
