Founded in 1964; Nike is now one of the most valuable sports brands in the world; worth over $19 billion. Not bad for what started out as a small business selling trainers from the boot of a car. By the late 80s; half of the sports shoes sold in America were Nikes. And even greater success was ahead; as lines like the Air Force and Air Max became cultural icons that had the fashion pages buzzing. These days the company's “Swoosh” logo is an internationally recognised symbol of sporty coolness.
The Nike Collection
Although the brand began with shoes; Nike offers a lot else besides. You can round out your look with accessories such as caps; hip bags and totes. Nike clothes range from sporting essentials like track tops and shorts to stylish casualwear options; from clean-cut gym-ready styles to retro looks ideal for clubbing. As for the shoes themselves; they're available in models for running; tennis; basketball and skateboarding; plus a plethora of fashion editions.
Celebrities and More
Nike has kept its name in the headlines thanks to a number of high profile collaborations with the likes of skateboarding star Stefan Janoski and basketball players Kevin Durant; Kyrie Irving; LeBron James and the great Michael Jordan. it's also had long-term associations with some of the biggest names in the world of sport; including Roger Federer; Tiger Woods and Cristiano Ronaldo. Plus it makes the official jerseys for FC Barcelona; Paris Saint Germain and Chelsea FC. These celebrity endorsements wouldn't carry such weight if it weren't for Nike's commitment to new technology; such as the special Flywire threads that go in making their lightweight uppers or the Tuned Air system that delivers optimum support to different parts of the foot.
