Nike Inc is a global sports brand that designs, develops, and manufactures footwear, apparel, equipment, accessories, and services.
The company was founded in Beaverton, Oregon, United States on 25 January 1964. At that time it was known as Blue Ribbon Sports, as blue ribbons were handed out to winners of track and field events. The company initially operated as a distributor for Japanese shoemaker Onitsuka Tiger, with Phil Knight selling the shoes from the back of his car at track meets, until Bill Bowerman came up with the waffle press shoe (literally using a waffle maker to create the base of the shoe).
The iconic Nike Swoosh (designed by Carolyn Davidson) was first used by Nike on 18 June 1971, and was registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on 22 January 1974.
One of Nike's greatest strategic moves was to sponsor high-profile athletes such as Michael Jordan, which has made some of the company's products extremely expensive and highly sought after collectors items.
Nike is traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the code NKE.
