What is the best part of our college life? Girls-Nah, Classes-Nah. It’s obviously our shoe collection and walking to college in a different pair every day. This gets the final touch when the shoe is a NIKE.
Nike has always been my favorite brand because they are best at everything quality, design, durability. Be it Jeans, cargo, or a chino, Nike has always got the perfect match for us. Well, any praise is less for this brand.
You should always know what you wear, So let’s introduce you to Nike and make sure you never lose “The Shoe Boast battle” with your friend.
Nike was founded by Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman (an Olympic running coach). It was known by the name of Blue Ribbon Sports then. In 1971 BRS changed its name to Nike (the Greek goddess of victory). The logo maker of Nike charged a mere $35 for it.
“The Moon Shoe” was Nike’s first release and tryout pairs given to players in the Olympics then. The Blazer Basketball was its first basketball shoe.
When were the first shoe of every NIKE series launched :
- Nike Airforce 1 – 1982
- The Air Pegasus – 1983
- The Air Jordan – 1984
- The Nike Air Max – 1987
- The Nike Huarache – 1991
- The Hyperadapt 1 – 2017
The very first campaign featuring the now iconic slogan “Just Do It” launches. The slogan was inspired by serial killer Gary Gilmore's last words “Let's do it” before he was executed by firing squad in 1977.
Nike doesn’t only make shoes but they make them worth it. How, read it right down here –
