Nike shoes are named after the Greek goddess of victory, so it’s truly poetic justice that the company remains the top athletic footwear brand in the world. As exceptional at marketing as they are at making sneakers, Nike has revolutionized their industry, turning everyday trainers into must-have attire that says more about the wearer than anything else they may have on. Nike has become such an important player in the advertising realm, that their logo, the famous “swoosh,” is instantly recognized by all and is arguably second only to the golden arches of McDonalds.
Founded under the name Blue Ribbon Sports in 1964 by Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight, the company would eventually change its name to Nike in 1971. Three years later, the company released its first sneaker, the Nike Waffle Trainer. The shoe’s design (and name) was inspired by a waffle iron owned by Bowerman’s wife at the time. Although their initial foray into trainers wasn’t met with instant success, since that time, Nike running shoes have become synonymous with innovation, comfort, and style. Nike stays true to tradition and style with the Cortez and Ebernon. The popular Cortez is one of the original shoes made by the brand. While it was originally made as a running shoe, the Cortez can be dressed down for day and up for night. The Nike Ebernon takes casual and comfortable to a whole new level. Choose one of the multiple colors of the Ebernon, ranging from pink to classic white for women and red to blue for men, and you’ll be ready to turn heads. Or if sporty is your go-to look, go for the high-top Ebernon Mid.
Newer designs like the Nike Air Max MOTION, Air Precision, and ZOOM Winflo 6 running shoe bring Nike’s tradition of quality and comfort to today’s shoe buying masses. True to the brand’s commitment to excellence, these and other models of Nike shoes showcase the latest in running and training innovation.
