Nike is American sportswear organization headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon. It was established in 1964 as Blue Ribbon Sports by Bill Bowerman, an olympic style events mentor at the University of Oregon, and his previous understudy Phil Knight. They opened their first retail outlet in 1966 and propelled the Nike brand shoe in 1972.
The organization was renamed Nike, Inc., in 1978 and opened up to the world two years after the fact. By the mid 21st century, Nike had retail outlets and merchants in excess of 170 nations, and its logo—a bended check mark called the “swoosh"— was perceived all through the world.
Some portion of Nike’s prosperity is owed to supports by such competitors as Michael Jordan, Mia Hamm, Roger Federer, and Tiger Woods. The NikeTown chain stores, the first opened in 1990, pay tribute to these and other organization spokespersons while offering buyers a full scope of Nike items. During the 1990s the organization’s picture quickly experienced disclosures about poor working conditions in its abroad processing plants.
