About Nike Trainers
Founded as Blue Ribbon Sports in 1964, it wasn't until 1971 that Nike adopted its now iconic name. Based in Oregon in the USA, Nike has become a byword for high-quality sporting goods and its trainers are worn by some of the most famous athletes in the world. From its humble beginnings, the company has gone from strength to strength and is strongly linked with sporting excellence, as is evidenced by its sponsorship of a huge number of leading sports sides, including Manchester United, Barcelona and the England football team. Catering for both men and women, Nike trainers feature the distinctive "Swoosh" logo, designed by Carolyn Davidson and first used in 1971. Nike's dedication to design means that its trainers are not only popular with sports people, but have also become a must-have fashion item in their own right. One of the company's most famous lines is the AirMax, which made its debut in 1987 and has spawned a number of incarnations and spinoffs, including the Air Jordan, a basketball shoe named after and designed by legendary player Michael Jordan. For those who are more interested in running, Nike offers the Revolution, a specially designed trainer that cushions the foot upon impact. The company caters for adults and children, and its dedication to quality means that you're assured a quality product whatever line and size you decide is right for you. So whether you're looking for that perfect training shoe or just something that offers both comfort and style, Nike has got you covered.
