Whether it’s men’s golf shoes, women’s tracksuits or the kids’ Nike Air Max collection you’re seeking, you can be sure there’s a Nike branch (and online catalogue) awaiting your attention.
Very few people need a reminder about the amazing reputation of Nike, the multinational American corporation that first went by the name ‘Blue Ribbon Sports’. The brand (and logo) might have changed since then, yet Nike’s success hasn’t, instead leading to the brand becoming the world’s most successful supplier of athletic shoes, apparel, plus sports equipment.
The history of Nike
Blue Ribbon Sports was founded in 1964 by University of Oregon track athlete, Phil Knight, and his coach, Bill Bowerman. Their first retail outlet opened two years later and in 1972, they had launched their first Nike brand shoe. Blue Ribbon Sports became Nike in 1978 and two years later, the new brand went public.
During the late 1980s, thanks to various acquisitions (like the shoe companies Cole Haan and Converse, Inc.), the Nike brand effectively expanded its business and diversified its product line. This was enhanced even further in the early 21st century when the brand started selling sport-technology accessories (like high-altitude wrist compasses).
Today, Nike operates retail outlets and distributors in over 170 countries worldwide, including South Africa. Its logo, a check mark known as the “swoosh”, is one of the most recognisable logos in the world. And the brand’s continuous endorsements by popular athletes, like Michael Jordan and Roger Federer, only serve to boost the Nike name even more.
