Nike’s origin story began as a testing environment to craft and develop the best running shoes. Legendary University of Oregon track and field coach Bill Bowerman partnered with one of his former runners Phil Knight to create Blue Ribbon Sports in 1964 which would later become Nike in 1978. Ever since, running has been integrated into Nike’s DNA of innovation. From using a waffle iron as design inspiration for a shoe’s outsole to Air Max technology to today’s React cushioning midsole, Nike running shoes continue its legacy of performance innovation.
