Nike Inc. is an American company and the world's largest footwear producer, apparel and sports accessories. Nike was founded in 1964 in Washington County, as Blue Ribbon Sports, by Bill Bowerman and Philip Knight (who was a president of the company until 2004). Company name comes from the Greek goddess Nike. Initially Nike sewed shoes for athletes, but as the time goes they also began to support other areas of sports, such as snowboarding, skateboarding or BMX. Opening up to other environments, and above all, to create a new model of shoes Nike Skateboarding - Stefan Janoski, had a very positive impact on the company's image. Nike 's offer also includes clothing, that works not only as a fashionable and comfortable sports outfit, but also as an ideal and unique everyday outfit. So regardless of how you play sports, whether you're a pro, or just train for fun, Nike is an appropriate choice for you.
