Who Founded Nike?

Image
 How Did This Legendary Brand Begin? It's hard to believe just how long Nike has been going! However, as with all things, Nike itself had a beginning.  Once upon a time, a guy(well actually two people) decided to go ahead and JUST DO IT! But, who were the people who started Nike? Where Was Nike Founded? Before we get to the actual people who founded Nike, consider where it was founded, where was that? The actual place that is credited with the birth of this global brand is the University of Oregon, which you can find in any United States Business Directory .

There is a reason, though, why in Sydney Australia, this trend will not become absolute..ie will not become the only way to buy the kind of shoes that you are looking for. Sydney is different to Europe or North America It is true that online shopping, even for shoes, is getting an ever stronger foothold in the cooler temperate climates of Europe and North America. However, even though cooler climates such as Melbourne, and Hobart, in Australia, are somewhat akin to the methods of the norther hemisphere, Sydney is different. The warm temperate climate of Sydney is more conducive to outdoor activity. As a Sydney window cleaner , I see people shopping on what are considered to be the coldest days of winter in Sydney.
