Nike is a multi-national company, founded on January 25, 1964, as Blue Ribbon Sports, by Bill  Bowerman and Phil Knight, and officially became Nike, Inc. on May 30, 1971. The company takes its name from Nike, the Greek goddess of victory.

Nike markets its products under its own brand, as well as Nike Golf, Nike Pro, Nike+, Air Jordan,  Nike Blazers,  Air Force 1, Nike Dunk, Air Max, Foamposite, Nike Skateboarding, Nike CR7,[9] and  subsidiaries including Brand Jordan, Hurley International and Converse.

Nike also owned Bauer Hockey (later renamed Nike Bauer) from 1995 to 2008, and previously owned  the Cole Haan brand. In addition to manufacturing sportswear and equipment, the company operates  retail stores under the Niketown name. Nike sponsors many high-profile athletes and sports teams around  the world, with the highly recognized trademarks of “Just Do It” and the Swoosh logo.

In today’s world they are the most popular basketball shoe in sports, even though they had a few damage control issues when Zion Williams injured his knee after one of his Nike shoes blew out less than a minute  into Dukes game against North Carolina in 2019.

Nike stock closed down the day after by 1 ½ percent as the world wondered how a sneaker could split so badly in the middle of a game.  All I can say as a Kentucky fan is Nike needs to be happy that didn’t happen to Tyler Hero, PJ Washington or one of our boys 🙂

You can see the Infamous video here if you have never seen the Zion Nike shoe
blow out.
