The founders of the popular shoe brand, Nike, were two men named Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight. Nike was originally known as Blue Ribbon Sports and was founded by the University of Oregon track athlete, as I said before, Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight in January 1964. The company was only founded with just $1200 in the bank. Nike’s brand logo ‘Swoosh’ was and tagline ‘Just Do It’ had become a well known symbol in the American households. In the year of 1985, a NBA legend, Michael Jordan, went on to design signature shoes for him and his increasing popularity took Nike sales to break new records. Later on, Nike move into designing apparel and other cross-country accessories. They sign various national teams like Brazil football team, U.S men’s and women’s soccer team. In 1996, they signed another person. It was a golfer named Tiger Woods for a sum of $5 million dollars a year. And the rest the people say is, ya know, history. Nike kept sending new editions of their landmark training shoes. Also, Nike started Nike Shoe in 2000 which was received worldwide. Today, it is now a large empire that incorporates lots of sports like baseball, cricket, tennis, soccer, and athletics. Nike obtained companies on its road to success, and almost sold all them. One of the companies they sold was Umbro. Currently, Nike own two sub diaries, Converse Inc. and Hurley International. Nike hires more than 44,000 people and its brand alone values almost $10 billion. Nike has hand built a legacy that is at the top of the food chain per say. Nike has so much prestige that it is not even funny. Any person who knows Phil Knight can contest to all the adversity and hardships this man had to deal with on his journey to becoming successful.
