That’s right, the titan of an athletic company debuted in 1964 and never looked back from providing soccer players and other athletes with some of the best gear available. Back then, the tiny company operating out of the University of Oregon was known as Blue Ribbon Sports. It started flying under the renowned Nike banner in 1971 when it debuted its first product with the famous “swoosh” logo — a pair of soccer cleats named Nike. And as you know, the name stuck and now Nike Inc., provides soccer players around the globe with some of the highest performing gear available, from soccer balls to boots and keeper gloves to apparel.
So here’s to thanking Nike for all the gear over its 47 years and wishing the brand a happy anniversary! Come see us over at World Soccer Shop and celebrate the occasion with great deals on Nike products.
One last thing. It’d be unfair to pat Nike on the back for all its great contributions to our beautiful game over the years without mentioning its brilliant adverts. Here’s a few to get you jump-started on the reminiscing. What’s your favorite Nike commercial?
