Nike was started in 1964 by Phil Knight but was not named Nike until 1971, before that the company was called Blue Ribbon Sports. Knight initially imported shoes from Asia and sold them to American runners. One of the brands he imported was Asics which was then called Onitsuka Tiger.
Nike's logo, swooshen , was created in 1971 by a design student at Portland State University. The name Nike comes from the Greek goddess Nike. It was Bowerman, Knight's colleague, who was behind the epoch-making nike shoes with "waffled" undersides.
It was not until 20 years after the launch that Nike continued its success and became the market leader, specifically with the great success of the Air Jordan shoe with Michael Jordan as the front man.
