Who Founded Nike?

 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 . Why was the University of Oregon the birthplace of Nike ? Well, simply because that is where the founders were located! In fact, it was the combination of a track athlete and their coach which formed the team that 'kicked' off the brand. Had their paths not crossed at the university, we may not have ever worn Nike on our feet! So, Who Were This Athlete And Coach Team? So, with no further ado, allow me to share with you

Yes, today we might consider Air Max technology as a 'given' for youth shoe culture, however, this might not have been the case without Nike's ingenuity. The Models From Early To Present When it comes to Nike Air, it is hard to believe that they originated way back in 1987 with the original model being the 'Air Max 1' which was created for running, as are many of the reasons for their existence today. So, here are a few of the models that have graced our feet since 1987, and live forever in modern culture: Air Max 1 - 1987 (leather version released in 1988) Air Max Light -
