Before there was the Swoosh, there were two visionary men who pioneered a revolution in athletic footwear that redefined the sneaker industry.
Bill Bowerman was a track and field coach at the University of Oregon, who constantly searched for ways to give his athletes a competitive advantage. He experimented with different track surfaces, re-hydration drinks and innovations in running shoes. But the established footwear manufacturers of the 1950s ignored the ideas he tried to offer them, so Bowerman began cobbling shoes for his runners.
Phil Knight was a talented middle-distance runner from Portland, who enrolled at Oregon in the fall of 1955 and competed for BowermanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s track program. Upon graduating from Oregon, Knight earned his MBA in finance from Stanford University, where he wrote a paper that proposed quality running shoes could be manufactured in Japan that would compete with more established German brands. But his letters to manufacturers in Japan and Asia went unanswered, so Knight took a chance. You can say that chance paid off quite nicely.
Today, Nike continues to seek new and innovative ways to develop superior athletic products, and creative methods to communicate directly with our consumers and is now one of the largest, most known brands around the world.

Nike’s skateboarding department and Michael Jordan’s personal brand have merged to create the much-anticipated Nike SB x Air Jordan 1. Paying homage to the longtime relationship between the two, the first rendition of the mashup is designed by multimedia artist Craig Stecyk. Coming in a green and black colorway that features a chroma-like finish, the inaugural SB Air Jordan 1 contains detailing in the form of a black and white polka dot print around the ankle collar and tongue. Stecyk’s signature tribal visual print adds another element, stamping “AJ One SB” on the heels and inner lining. Get a closer look at the collaborative production between two different cultures below, and prepare for these to drop in on March 15th at select Nike SB and Air Jordan dealers.
It appears that Mr. Football has made it official with the Swoosh. According to a report from ESPN, Johnny Manziel has inked with Nike. The high profile Heisman winner ranks atop the biggest names in the draft and most exciting players to watch, coming off a dynamic two-year campaign with Texas A & M. While Manziel sported adidas as an Aggie, upon declaring for the draft he aligned with Beaverton’s big dog, LeBron James, Maverick Carter and their LRMR representation group. Darren Rovell reports that it is in fact a done deal and that Manziel will be the highest paid rookie in this year’s draft class. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for more details on the Johnny Football x Nike partnership.
