Nike History

Nike was founded in 1964 by University of Oregon track athlete Philip Knight and his coach, Bill Bowerman.  The company was originally called Blue Ribbon Sports and began as a distributor for Asics.

In 1966, BRS opened its first retail outlet in Santa Monica, California.

In 1971, the company began selling its own line of footwear.  The shoes had a distinctive swoosh on the side.  The swoosh was trademarked in 1974.

In 1978, the company became Nike, Inc.

By 1980, the company had attained a 50% share of the athletic shoe market.  The company went public.

In 1988, the company acquired Cole Haan.  Cole Haan was sold in 2013.

In 1994, Bauer Hockey was acquired.

In 2002, the company acquired the Hurley Surf Company.

In 2003, Converse was acquired, followed by Starter and Umbro in 2004.  Umbro was eventually sold in 2012.

In 2004, Phil Knight retired as CEO.  He was replaced by William Perez.

In September 2018, Nike chose Colin Kaepernick to be the face of Nike in their advertising campaigns, despite protests and threats of a boycott.

Today, Nike is one of the largest suppliers of athletic footwear and apparel in the world. In 2017, the company had annual revenue of $34.35 billion

I no longer follow professional football (though in the 60s and 70s I was a 49ers fan), and I’m not an avid follower of any sport. But I deeply admire and appreciate the symbolic gesture of Colin’s act! As a white person, I admire anyone who places their welfare at risk for a principle they believe! It takes extreme courage for someone who has attained so much, to place it all at risk for the betterment of our country, and for standing for racial equality – a principle which will make our country more united and a better place to live. He did something which the Trump’s in this world would never risk! He placed his beliefs ahead of his own welfare, for he had no idea how his act of patriotism would be received and what impact this would have on his welfare and that of his family! And thank you NIKE for standing with such a hero! You also have my admiration!

I probably own upwards of 20 pairs of nikes from flip flops to tennis shoes which have worn nearly exclusively for the past 5 years. I now find myself ashamed to wear the nike label in public, so these products are relegated to wearing around the house. Fortunately, I also have Sketchers and other equally comfortable shoes to wear outside the home. Sad that your decision to get political with the Kaepernick ad campaign has pushed my nikes to the back of the closet.
I am supportive of first ammendment rights and although I do not agree with the stand Kaepernick has taken, he has that right. I wish it had remained an individual stand, because once NIke came on board, it became a more national and divisive one. I am the daughter of a deceased soldier who was a WWII vet and the widow of a retired Korean War and Vietnam War veteran who died from Agent Orange related cancer. My beloved spouse was a self taught artist, created many statues for our local community and was frequently interviewed regarding his accomplishments and lack of formal training. Ironically, his reply to questions about how to do what he did was “Just do it”. That became a catch phrase in our home and among our friends, but had nothing to do with Nike. He often said it was his duty to fight wars, but it was the duty of the American citizen to make sure the war was worth a soldier’s life. Our military stands always ready to defend our rights, but to paraphrase my late husband, we should then ensure that those rights are used for the greater good of all of our people. We have been divided long enough and if we remain so, we could lose the unity this nation once stood for. Please go back to making shoes and not political statements.

As a Vietnam war vet, I will never buy a Nike product or an Under Armour product. Companies better realize that not all of their customers are left wing liberals. The conservatives in this nation have power too. Stay out of politics. Your business is sales not telling people how to think. If your business is so great, try donating your shoes to the poor and get a tax write-off. So long Nike. It’s been bad knowing you.

While I find it admirable that you decided to use a person who risked “everything” for taking a stand, does that include ALL people who risk everything? How about using Barronell Stutzman or Jack Phillips in your commercials. They lost their livelihood because of their religious beliefs. Or how about talking about the 86 Nigerian Christians murdered by Muslims for their faith recently? After all, taking a stand is taking a stand, no matter what the issue is.

First, I applaud your bold move in support of Kaepernick and NFL player protests.
However, I must inform you of something that happened in response to that.

Mayor E. Ben Zahn III of the City of Kenner (a suburb of New Orleans, LA) sent an official memorandum to Chad Pitfield, Director of Parks and Recreation Department on September 5, 2018. That memorandum read:

“Re: Booster Club Purchases
Effective Immediately all purchases made by any booster club operating at any Kenner Recreation Facility for wearing apparel, shoes, athletic equipment, and/or any athletic product must be approved by the Director of Parks and Recreation, or his designee. Under no cirXXXXstances will any Nike product or any product with the Nike logo be purchased for use or delivery at any City of Kenner Recreation Facility.”

First, I find this to be a disturbing overreach of power and I think your legal team may agree, so please forward this up the chain to them.

Second, because of this, there are many young athletes in that community who now feel alienated and reluctant to participate in city sanctioned athletics. I wonder if there is the possibility of something done for them as part of Nike’s already widespread community outreach activities.

Thank you.

I am a disabled Vietnam Veteran due to Agent Orange. Let me try to explain to you why we are upset with your pick of Kaepernick. You see a lot of soldiers came home under that flag. That flag means a lot to many of us. Each time I put my hand on my heart and look at the flag. I think of those that came home underneath our flag. You see they gave all for something they believed in.
But, yet you are not taking in consideration our feeling, only your bottom line. Something you forgot about was the power of the Veteran, Police and Fire.
I would like to invite you and Kaepernick to tour the VA hospital in Ann Arbor Michigan with me and see what real sacrifice is and what a real Hero is.

I am so disappointed that you chose C. Kaepernick to be a representative of the Nike Brand. I have been a loyal customer for over 25-years. He’s certainly entitled to his opinions as we live in a country that has freedom of speech, luckily. However, Nike chose the most unethical person in America to represent its brand. Just as I have ‘let go’ of the NFL entirely because of what Colin started in the NFL, I am sorry to say I shall do the same with Nike! He is disrespectful to America by spreading hate and piles on the “fake outrage” about Law-Enforcement, which is simply untrue. All one has to do is look at the ‘real stats’ to find out he is way out of line in the hatred he spews toward them and our Military, Nat’l Anthem, Flag, etc. He merely does not understand what he has been blessed with in America and should take a vacation to just one of the countries akin to Venezuela to experience how ‘the people’ must live under a Dictatorship. If I hear one more time that HE Sacrificed everything when leaving the NFL to stand up for his beliefs, I think I will throw-up. He does not comprehend or even know what that word means! Sorry Nike, but I’m as done with you as I am the NFL. No one in my household will ever buy a Nike product again. I hope every other true American will do the same – Boycott anything, everything NIKE! And your choice makes me ponder, just what kind of company you really are, it has to be “Anti-American” in every way. FIRE KAEPERNICK!

Yuck, I just watched Nike’s new ad with Kaepernick as their new Rep.! I had heard about it, but had not seen it. I couldn’t have been more taken aback! How could NIKE, a supposed American Company hire someone such as he to represent your products? He is a Racist and is helping to divide our nation into two camps. His beliefs are up to him, but don’t foist them onto us! If it wasn’t for Law Enforcement and our Military he and Nike would not have had the opportunity given them, which is to earn Millions and Billions of dollars in the greatest country on earth. Colin has his own agenda, divide and conquer! Their are good police and bad police as in every other career, but on the whole the police are excellent and sacrifice their lives every day to support our communities and stop crime. Colin, and now Nike joins in the spreading HATE! I and everyone I know will never buy Nike apparel again, and will throw Nike product’s that we own in the trash, where they belong. Remove the American Flag from your web-site. I hope your stock drops like a rock! Whomever made the fatal decision to hire Colin should be fired! Nike has no respect or reverence for our Law-Enforcement, our Laws, the Constitution, our Military and our Flag! Nike, I know your company will suffer, and soon, unless you remove Kaepernick as your spokesperson! Colin will make Millions from NIKE, while our Law-Enforcement and Military personnel are the lowest paid hard-working people out of almost every other career, they are the ones who sacrifice their very lives. SHAMEFUL that you consider this Coward a ‘good spokesperson’ for Nike. How could you think Colin would boost Nike’s revenue? Nike has the worst standards and ethics of any company that exists in America today.

To: Mr Mark Parker, CEO Nike
I just saw that you, Nike, have an advert with Kaepernick as the focus of your slogan – “Just Do It” – with the added statement – “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything”. And learned that for several years to come, you have the uniform contract for the NFL.
You have just given me an additional, solid reason to continue my boycott of the NFL, a sport I used to watch every fall Sunday with my dad and my then St Louis Cardinals.
I will never wear your brand – ever – nor will I buy any of your products as long as you maintain your arrangement with Kaepernick. It appears to me that you have not done your research on Kaepernick. Let me provide some.
A few years ago after he started all this, he knelt next to a Seattle, Washington, high school football team during the national anthem while those students laid on the ground with both arms raised. You must think this behavior of and influence on the youth of our nation is acceptable. I do not.
Do you know why those kids were doing that? Because they claimed to have issues with the local police department!! And they must have looked to Kaepernick for “guidance” on what to do and how to get attention for their “cause”. I tried for some time, unsuccessfully, even calling the school, to determine what those issues were. The “issues” were finally printed in the local paper. It would be interesting to see where those kids are today and how they feel about what they did.
The principal supported the children, citing freedom of speech. In my day in high school, our parents, the veterans of WWII and Korea would have taken us behind the woodshed and we wouldn’t have been able to sit down for a week had we done something like that, period, dot.
Yes, we have freedom of speech in our country. But there is a time and place for everything. And kneeling during our national anthem while on “company time and turf” is not the time nor the place for any protest. 99% of us who do work at our various businesses are not allowed such “freedom”.
That Kaepernick doesn’t understand this and neither does Nike is a disappointment to me.
You are attempting to show leadership of an “issue” with your endorsement but it is misguided and directed, in my opinion. Do some research: is the rate of police brutality any different today than many years ago or is it is perceived to be higher because of the much easier access to the events? I suspect the rate is about the same.
There are, I believe, many other issues that Kaepernick should be addressing which would be much more effective: violence in Chicago for starters. There are more black on black shootings and killings every weekend than all of the police brutality charges in a year.
That the Al Sharptons, Jessie Jacksons, etc., of America seem somewhat silent about Kaepernick should also tell you something. I don’t recall any of these activists stepping up for photo ops or interviews with Kaepernick, do you?
Very disappointed that you are giving him undeserved attention.

Why do we stand for the national anthem?
And standing up during the national anthem means a respectful and good citizen. Even the song itself is a song of somebody protecting our freedom. It was written during the British assault. It is considered an act of respect. Our national anthem is a sign for all the sacrifices people have made for our country.

I have bought and worn many Nike products for the last 50 years. This week I learned that Nike chose Colin Kapernick as a new face on their campaign and I was furious. As a Police Officer for the last 19 years, as a loyal American (one who stands and respects the American Flag) and as a person who’s always believed in treating all people regardless of age, race or religion the same. Why would Nike take Colin out of the thousands of people to be the “new face” of Nike. Colin wasn’t a good quaterback, he’s not a true American and all he’s trying to do is stir the pot, disrespect all service men and women past and present. I’m calling on all Patriots to boycott Nike and all the distributors until they decide to pull Colin as “the face” of Nike!!! Here’s a new slogan (one of which I may start making on shirts) JUST SCREW IT!!!!!

Nike,
You have an opportunity to unite our Country and do something positive. Instead you have chosen to divide the country – promote hatred and promote disrespect for the one thing that brought this country together. The National Anthem. There are so many positive ways to promote one’s agenda other than promoting disrespect for another. In our extended family alone we have over 40 young men and women who will no longer support your company. The 20/30 yr olds are more disappointed in this decision of yours than the older generation. Why not try to bring this country together instead of promoting division? Companies like you are now part of the problem.

When these people take off their costumes and put on a uniform then I will listen to them tell me about how bad this country is.

Gentlemen; I have purchased your footwear for more years than I care to remember. When I heard about the individual that you picked to be a paid representative/spokesperson for your Corp, I was and remain discussed! This Kapernick person is not suitable to be used in any marketing program. I hope to never hear that name again in association with the NFL, and i will not purchase anything from your brand as long as you continue to recognize his existence Let him spent his time kneeling on the sidewalk, or walking around the parking lots He has his right to protest, but let him do it the way the rest of us do. I will NOT support his crappy ideas..

My daughter loves soccer, and Nike boots! Recently, my family and I were visiting Greece and actually took time away from seeing amazing archaeological sites to get a pair of Nike soccer cleats at the mythical home of Goddess Nike, the Athens Nike store. What a true brand loyal family we are…or were.
As a lifelong Nike consumer, I’m confused and perplexed with Nike using Mr. Kaepernik as a face for “JustDoit”? Sports and sports equipment are much better without politics and agendas. Sport competition is one of the few freedoms that we can all enjoy without racial, gender or political biases. Something our country badly needs right now. Why did Nike throw themselves into a volatile political agenda that is abusing the very fabric of our nation that represents the freedom of all citizens to do as they please? The National Anthem represents the best of what America has endured, overcame, and will continue to overcome in the future.
What does Mr. Kaepernick really believe in, and more importantly what has he really sacrificed. Real sacrifice and beliefs come from individuals without huge paychecks to play sports, maybe missing a limb or two, but still find a way to standup for the National Anthem. Are Nike’s beliefs the same as Mr. Kaepernicks? The social justice system isn’t perfect, and I’m confident positive changes can be made through proper legislation and voting. That’s how real change occurs in this country of laws. Certainly Mr. Kaepernick knows he can reach decision makers by using his sports celebrity status like many athletes have in the past. However, most athletes promoting a cause have precise and calculated agendas away from the playing field. How did JJ Watt singly raise millions for all in need? He had a positive message that resonated with all Americans. Mr. Kaepernick on the other hand has singly helped to further the racial, and political division in our country. Is this where Nike is going as well? How about a “JustDoit” campaign with communities and law enforcement working together to better understand their differences to prevent the distrust. Better yet, fund Mr. Kaepernick to do this himself in Chicago, South Central LA, St. Louis etc… Other than supporting youth sports in the inner city, to sell more shoes and apparel in the future, what has Nike done on this front.
Mr. Kaepernick’s creating a hostage situation with the National Anthem is a bit silly when you think about it. Basically, until he has his undefined change accomplished the Anthem is a hostage. In football terms, let’s hold the defense responsible for the offense not scoring. There’s no means to the end other than breaking the team up, and no one wins. This country needs at least one rallying point that everyone can support and feel good about. Think of it like the Soccer World Cup. You don’t have to be a soccer fan to feel good if the US wins. Our National Anthem was a daily reminder of why you feel good when a US athlete or team wins a Gold medal in the Olympics. One man’s recently selfish act has ruined that feeling for many, and Nike is onboard with him. Let’s remember the women and men that truly sacrificed for all people’s freedoms that are, and will be, citizens of this amazing idea “The United States”. Both of my kids, adopted internationally, are recipients of these freedoms, that would not be allotted to them in their birth countries.
Those who have fought for our National Anthem had/have beliefs as well, and many gave the ultimate sacrifice, not singling out freedoms or agendas for a certain race, gender etc. They simply believed in the fabric of America, and the song that represents our past, present and future. I think that’s a great “JustDOit” campaign, but right now that’s not a money maker. Nike will have more exposure, but as a great football coach of mine said “be ready to be exposed”. Nike is an American success story that everyone should feel good about. With Nike’s new spokesperson it seems that Nike’s success could’ve happened anywhere other than the USA. In sum – no sacrifices were needed to create the US copyright/trademark laws, US banking system, the number one economy in the world, freedoms for all people to play sports equally at every level. Of course, National Defense, or the National Anthem, means nothing because everyone loves the United States, and wants Nike shoes…. JustDoit!
I end by stating that my daughter still loves soccer. I prefer not to ask her if she still loves Nike?

I hate every kind of discrimination and racism, and am saddened to see that this is what Nike has decided to do with the focus of their “Just do it” marketing. I cannot turn my back on the country that I love by supporting a company that seeks to foster division. May their attitude be rewarded in the way it deserves, by millions of people who love all their fellow Americans, turning their backs on Nike products. I will never purchase anything from them, nor recommend any of their products to others. Goodbye, Nike, and good riddance.

Due to your decision to honor Colin Kaepernick, I will never again purchase any item with Nike or their affiliate’s name on it. I also have removed all items of apparel and equipment I currently owned with their name attached to the trash.

I thought I had experienced all the derision I was going to get when I returned from Vietnam in 1969 after serving as a Combat Infantryman in the Mekong Delta and enduring the displays of animosity and disrespect expressed by a vast number of the populace for my service, but it has resurfaced. At that time I didn’t know who was going to show their feelings against me. Fortunately for me, now I do.

Police officers are hired from the human race and there are good and bad officers as in any profession however you have no understanding of how many citizen contacts are made in any 24 hour period let alone how that relates to the number of suspects shot as compared to the number of officers that are assaulted.
The person you selected has not sacrificed anything compared to so many brave individuals that have already been doXXXXented to your company. He or your company has no shame in trying compare him to anyone that puts or a uniform to serve and protect.

Your Kaepernic decision showed courage, intellect, and thoughtfulness beyond the rhetoric. You put principals above profits (although I don’t know your calculus) to show yourself as a leader. I will now permit my family to purchase and own Nike products. However, I still won’t give MJ any of my money via Nike.
Congratulations for your challenge to the willful ignorance in equating taking a knee with disrespecting the flag/troops. It is the purest sense of honoring democracy by trying to proliferate freedom through peaceful protest.

Earls, you do not seem to understand what Nike has done.I do not know what kind of liberal planet you come from, but what Nike has done is to slap every law enforcement person and particularly our military personnel in the face by having Colin Kaepernick be a “model’ for their logo. A spokesman? Why should he garner the respect of all Americans to the point that they will willing purchase more Nike products? Are they so needing money that they will be willing to sacrifice patriotism for the almighty dollar? There are so many deserving mend and women who have died for our country who should deserve this “honor”. What exactly has Colin done but cause anger and mayhem. Nike should be shunned and may Colin choke of every dollar he has received from Nike. I refer this to BLOOD MONEY. Be happy in your “choice” Nike.

My family and I will never buy any of your products again. Using Kaepernick is in insult and disgrace. Kaepernick’s political ideology, one he revealed rather shamelessly by wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with mass murderer Fidel Castro’s face on it to a press conference in Miami, Florida, home to the largest community of Castro’s victims in the country. Kaepernick refused to disown Castro, instead doubling down on his praise of the dictator when confronted by a journalist member of the Cuban exile community.
In endorsing the rule of Fidel Castro, Kaepernick stood in defense of police brutality, systematic racism against people of color, and the torture and murder of political dissidents, all the ills that he repeatedly claims so urgently tarnish America. In this context, refusing to stand for America’s flag becomes a rejection of the values that Kaepernick claims to represent – and now Nike has rejected those values, too.

I would like to say that our family is very disappointed that you would make Colin Kaepernick the face of your ads. I read on your website that “Our purpose is to use the power of sports to move the world forward” and to “make a positive difference in the world.” Another thing your site says, “We strive to break down barriers, bring people together, and inspire people.” A positive world does not involve athletes who are disrespecting our National Anthem and pushing politics thru sports. How are you breaking barriers, bringing people together, and inspiring people with this? Sports are meant to be enjoyed for family entertainment! Our family has spent a lot of money over the years on your products for our children’s sports. We will no longer be purchasing anything from a company that is not making a “positive difference in the world.”

Every one has the right to their opinion, and Kaepernick has a right to his, But he should not express it on the field. We watch Football and other sports to get away from all the political crap. He was not black listed, he was cut by the 49’ers because he is a bad QB. After that he was offered a contract by Denver I believe, but he turn it down because he thought it was not enough money. He wanted 9 million, they offered 7. Only in this great country could someone get 7 mill for throwing a ball around.

So now I will exercise my right of choice.
Because you have made that unpatriotic, un-American Kaepernick the face of you Just Do It Ads. I WILL NEVER BUY YOUR PRODUCTS AGAIN!! This weekend I when I go camping I am going to burn all the Nike products that I own.

Good Morning Gentlemen,

Question: How many hits (to NIKE stock) like this Tuesday’s are you willing to take before the stockholders revolt to this very bad idea–new Poster Child, Colin Kapernick?

Who does your marketing research? Do you really think pandering to a certain demographic that is committed to:
“I hate all police and I hate America”—-Is this the new marketing strategy to sell a whole bunch of $200 shoes?
In 2017, NFL attendance-revenue was down 18% and we may very well see a reprise of that for the next three years when the NFL Players Association contract comes up for renewal?

SUBJECT: Shaquille O’Neal says he’ll run for sheriff in 2020—Protest at Anthem-Kneeler Colin Kaepernick Becoming the Controversial Face of NIKE Just Do It Campaign

Good Morning NIKE Management,

Question: Is Colin Kaepernick going to protest Shaquille O’Neal who will make a 2020 bid to run for sheriff? Is Kaepernick going to accuse O’Neal of betraying his race and say he is not black because he has chosen to become “blue”? O’Neal is an honorary deputy in Georgia’s Clayton County and has been a reserve police officer in Los Angeles; Miami Beach; Tempe, Arizona; Golden Beach, Florida; and Doral, Florida.
The NFL owners think NIKE has stabbed them in the back with this Kaepernick poster boy thing. The NIKE “swoosch” logo on NFL game uniforms will symbolize 22 Kaepernicks out on the football field.

NFL television viewers will either change the station or won’t watch the games at all, and will avoid retail stores with Kaepaernick-NIKE ad posters. After all, Kaepernick is suing the NFL owners. [Colin Kaepernick won a key battle in his NFL collusion case against NFL team owners in arbitration.]

Is this the best way for NIKE to forge a positive, synergistic business relationship with NFL owners?

If NIKE decides in the future to let Kaepernick go due to a loss in market cap and sales, do you think for a moment he won’t file a lawsuit against NIKE?

KAEPERNICK THE JOB QUITTER:

Kaepernick likes to forget that he abandoned his last job with the San Francisco 49’s; he walked away from them—he was never fired. Employers don’t want to take a chance on hiring somebody who walked off their last job! Make sense?

NIKE’S COMPETITION IS POISED TO GRAB MARKET CAP AND SIGNIFICANT SALES:

Michael Greenberg, the founder and president of the trendy shoe company Skechers U.S.A., at the Fashion Footwear Association of New York exposition said Skechers is now the third-most-popular brand among teenagers, after Nike and Adidas. Company sales, he adds, jumped 40 percent last quarter compared with a year earlier; and as retailers are becoming choosier about which shoe brands to stock, both Lord & Taylor and Athlete’s Foot have just signed on.

Nike & KAEPERNICK WILL alienate and lose customers AND will harm Nike in Middle America, where it is battling Germany’s Adidas for dominance in the sneaker market.

NIKE WILL HAVE TO MAKE A FUTURE DECISION ON KAEPERNIK IF MARKET CAP AND SALES SLIDE AND THE STOCK PRICE GETS HAMMERED.

Finally, does NIKE really think pandering to a certain demographic movement that is committed to:
“I hate all police and I hate America”—-
Is this the new marketing strategy to sell a whole bunch of $200 shoes?
In 2017, NFL attendance-revenue was down 18% and we may very well see a reprise of that for the next three years when the NFL Players Association contract comes up for renewal. NFL preseason revenue is down 9%. Lost viewership and declining NFL game attendance goes beyond the “angry white men” demographic as you will soon see. There is also a campaign to persuade institutional investors world-wide to dump NIKE stock.

Many of my military veteran and senior center friends and I will not be buying anymore NIKE shoes or NIKE NFL clothing apparel.

Thanking you for your courtesy and interest, I remain,

To Philip Locke: Thank you for serving our country!! You are a true patriot, while Nike and Colin are Anti-America. It’s good people such as you who deserve a multi-million dollar contract representing our country and standing-up for American business. America and its Vets gave the opportunity to Nike to become a Billion Dollar Corporation. Without people such as you that stood up and truly Fought for our freedoms Nike wouldn’t be the wealthy company that they have become. I’m burning all of my Nike apparel, and will never buy anything from this Corp. again. How much more disrespectful can one get than hiring someone akin to Colin, a true America-Hater.

EVERYONE – BOYCOTT NIKE!

I truly hope they find themselves in the same boat as the NFL, which I haven’t watched since this ‘kneeling’ took place at our games, and I never will. “JUST STAND” for our Flag and Nat’l Anthem! Nike should hire Military and/or Law Enforcement to represent them. That’s true patriotism. Worse, they have the nerve to show an American Flag on their Web-Site, it can’t get much more disgusting than that. They should have Communistic Flag instead, after making a fatal mistake in hiring Colin Kaepernick.

your company has taken a political position that will further divide our nation. Your decision is based upon the freedom that out founding fathers bestowed upon us. my decision is that I will never buy a Nike product again AND i WILL EVANGELIZE MY OPINION TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS ALIKE.

Why would a company like Nike take a stand that alienates 50% of the people? If millionaires want to express displeasure with the United States let them put their money where their mouth is.
I for one purchased Nike stock and purchased my first pair of Nike shoes. Stock will be sold today and no more Nike products for our family.
Your VP who made this decision must have a degree from STUPID.

I am really unhappy with the policy that Nike has, we spent a fortune on sneakers and when something happens you make the consumer pay for shipping…If I spend $432.00 on 2 pairs of sneakers and I have a problem I don’t want to turn around and spend another $43.52 to send them to your company…..this is unfair to your consumers!

Hi. so I am a single mother of 7 kids 5 which are in school . The last two years I have been unable to buy my kids school shoes or supplies due to financial difficulties. This year didn’t start off to great either but I finally was able to purchase my children named brand shoes. My son, his name is eli he is 7 years old . He got bullied last year because of his shoes. So you can only imagine how stoked he was to have a pair of brand new nikes. well the new shoes I bought him at the mall they are grey and white they have the velcroe strap that straps over the laces. Well my complain is it wasn’t 2 days after I purchased the shoes they stoped staying straped. the strap just flaps everywhere trips him and the kids are picking on him about them . He doesn’t have any other pair of shoes those are it. I am completely straped on funds . there is no way I could buy him more. I couldn’t return them because my father had unexpected emergency heart surgery. I couldn’t leave the hospital hes all the family I have and I am all he has and the kids. My father actuallyf died three times and was resuscitated and is finally out of the hospital and doing well right now . I am paying for his perscriptions and just one of those was $435 . I am literally on the titanic. I emailed ceo of nike and to my surprise not a single response so maybe everyone may think I am being ridiculous but for me and my seven kids these shoes was are very important and was our new beginning in new shoes on our way to a good school year this year feeling and looking good and my poor guy eli is now not wanting to go to school because kids are so mean now adays please if someone could help or lead me in the right direction. thanks

My name is nick asmo and a huge fan of Nike. I always purchase three of the same shoes when I buy a pair of Nike shoes. However, the set I purchased in the last year all three pairs had the same issue and the anterior top portion has ripped where my toes go. As a result, I cannot wear them. They are my favorite most comfortable shoes but they all ripped by the toe within a month of wearing them. Is there any way of getting a credit or a new pair of shoes similar to the ones I love that fell apart way to early. Please let me know your thoughts and I appreciate your consideration. Thank you

My young children scrapped their money together to make sure that I had a nice birthday gift in July. They bought me the new model of the Nike flip flops. They have already broken. I’m very disappointed and sad and they are very upset that they tried so hard and put so much effort into this gift to be so let down. Everyone in my family wears Nike tennis shoes. We have always been satisfied up until this point. I would like to know if your products have a guarantee or warranty?

I’ve been requesting (for years) that Converse, now Nike, produce Jack Purcell sneakers true to the original design. I’ve attached a link for a photo of an original pair of Jack Purcell sneakers. I wear a size 15. Please, please, please offer the Jack Purcell line in the original design AND in sizes larger than 13. Thanks!

A very frustrated but loyal customer.
We live in Malaysia and buy a large amount of Nike sports shoes for our 2 talented sons. This year alone we have spent 1500 USD. Our sons are agegroup champions at Triathlon and distance running. They are Nike mad and have spikes, basketball shoes, football trainers and boots, running trainers and racing shoes. Only Nike is good enough!
They are role models for the international school kids who aspire to achieve what they have done.
I have written to Nike for assistance without reply. Indeed contacting Nike Malaysia is very difficult. No email, wrong phone numbers, wrong address etc. I think Nike do not want to be found! I really think that at least the international contact information should be kept up to date!
Our teenage boys are forever outgrowing their Nike shoes and frankly we would like to speak to someone to see if there are opportunities for sponsorship.
Would be grateful for any feedback.
Than you

I purchased Nike interchange s sunglasses a while back. I like the glasses. They are sunglasses that are marketed towards the lenses being interchangeable. However, when trying to find replacement lenses Nike transfers you to a company called Marshawn eyewear. They simply tell you that the frames are an older model and they don’t make the lenses anymore. What is the sense of spending hard earned money on Nike “interchangeable ” frames if Nike is just not going to back up their product? Will be buying other athletic apparel and sporting equipment for myself and my kids from now on.

Good afternoon,

I’m a retired Command Sergeant Major from the US Army with 29 years of service. While watching the Army/Navy game yesterday I fell in love with the Army helmets with the branch insignia on them. I retired in 2013 and served my entire career in the Signal Corps. I’m writing this in hopes that I can potentially purchase a replica helmet that was used in the 2015 Army/Navy game. I would even be willing to pay for an actual helmet as well, Signal Corps of course. Is this even possible? I can tell you that you would have the entire Army interested in buying this helmet to place in their work place or in their hobby room. Thank you.

To Nike Corp
Nikelabs and Nike online

My names is Thomas MacNeill. I am legally blind and is contacting you as A very frustrated and disappointed would be customer.

Nike on oct 30th at 10am PT 1pm EST. NIKELABS release the Nikelabs bruin leather style number 826670-106. I called into Nike.comes customer service number at 12:15pm est and 12:57pm est to the 1 (800) 806-6453 for assistance in making me order for thrse shore and was told they has already been sold out at 10am and I was on the line with 3 and half minute before doing intake then they went to place my order at 10:01 am pt. At this time a family member was on the Nike labs webpage tying get me them for my birthday I found out. when they was watching the countdown clock reached zero clicked and added to cart and was prompted with it was out of stock at 10:00 3 secs . They tried every size and the same promp came up, so There’s no humanly way possible would anyone be able to add and checkout products that fast other then marvels superhero the flash. As they tried every size available that wasn’t Grayed out and unable to click that was were put into cart and still was prompt with it being sold out even though it showed size was available and not Grayed out and unclickable.

I feel there was unfair practices taking please here ans that being animated buying techniques at the time of this launch. There must of been Some kind of robotic buying technique in order for all these shoes to sold out and not done buy the The actual public. On Nikelabs Twitter numoresss reports of people not being able to buy and sold out prompts in the same time frame support this. I think your company should be ashamed to hype a release then give false hope to the regular public and real interested customers opportunities to purchase instead Nike allows the advantage to those who take advantage of your real and loyal customers Who are give you their time waiting at lines in front of computers and other devices that was ready to hand over their hard earned money to your company, but didn’t give me or anyone in the mass public a real chance to acquire this product. In how I feel this being unfair buying techniques that me and other real interested customers feel. I also feel Maybe That your company never made these quantities available. Or that there was some kind of glitch with the website. If that was true this shoe collection launch was set up to fail and was mishandled by Nikelabs Nikelabs Twitter and Nike.com and Nike.come/Nikelabs. They all disrespected those who were willing to hand over their hard earn money to your company but was turned away for those who will but then on auction sites that will make them Only available at dishonest Prices.

I went to Nike Outlet, Vancouver Airport and bought some sports T-shirts & pants today. When I went to cashier, a part-time staff forced to pull the pants out from he hangers. I saw him doing like that , I then told him don’t do it like that. He didn’t response me and continue forcing to pull the collars of those T-shirt out from he top of the hangers. I told him that you’ll make the clothes deformed. Customers would not buy if the shape of the collar is not good. A lady had just passed by right behind him at that time. I then asked the lady if she could speak Chinese or not. The lady asked me that what kind of Chinese. I told her Cantonese. She said OK. I told the lady what the problem was. The lady then asked me that didn’t you want it or not. I told her that it is not the point I want it or not. It was about the part-time staff handle the merchandise for customers not properly. She then just said OK and walked away.

As one of the most popular and famous brand of products, is the reaction of the lady like that? What kind of customer services you provided? Are the customers first? That lady is one of the managers in that outlet. She is in what manner to treat customers! Originally, I want her to tell the part-time staff about his mistake. At last, she laughed and spoke to her subordinates loudly and asked her subordinates that her attitudes has problems and is not polite. Her subordinates replied “no” and laughed again. She even shouted and told me that she’s Canadian. Here is Canada.

The lady might be Canadian borned Chinese with Chinese look and can speak Cantonese. She did not need to do it like that. As a manager, can she handle cases with customers like this?

Finally, I knew she is one of the managers, Joyce Ko, in that outlet.

She is in what manner to treat customers? With her attitudes, I felt offended. Please look into this matter and avoid the similar case happened again.

Thank you for your kind attention to this matter. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Herbie
P.S. Joyce had asked me where did I come from, I told her that I am from Hong Kong. At the end, I had walked out from the shop, she was yelling at me loudly to take care. I am not a walking properly person.

Absolute worst customer service experience I’ve encountered in 46 years! Recently ordered a pair of $275 soccer cleats for my son’s 13th b’day. A Nike shoebox arrived last night and in it we found a pair of filthy, worn, broken and disgustingly odorous cleats – WOW – REALLY??? After waiting on hold for 30 minutes, customer service offered to replace the cleats, and 20% off on my NEXT purchase. Are they smoking crack???
Here’s Nike’s own Consumer Affairs Mission: “To represent the highest service standard within and beyond our industry, building loyal consumer relationships around the world.”
Guess what Nike? If this is the best you can do, I’m going to make you famous with ALL of my Facebook friends and every family on our son’s travel soccer club. You should be ashamed of yourselves!!!

I purchased a pair of rare Jordan Flight Runner golf shoes from a third party on line.(Nike Incident #150710-013186) I usually wear a 10 but when I received the shoes, I needed a half size larger. The shoes came with a return slip, so I returned them for resize using the return paperwork.

I sent them using UPS and the tracking number indicated that the box containing my shoes was delivered to the Nike warehouse as per instructions. After not hearing from Nike regarding my shoes I contacted Nike through their website and they advised me that first they hadn’t received my shoes. When pressed and I supplied the UPS tracking #, the story was changed to any unauthorized returns returned to the Nike warehouse were destroyed.

That’s crazy, how hard would it have been to just return my shoes explaining that they could honor my request. Instead, I was advised that they could not locate my shoes and they directed me to their management department.

Management advised me that because they couldn’t return my shoes, they would be sending me a gift card. That is totally unacceptable. Someone at that Nike warehouse now has a pair of rare Jordan golf shoes at my expense. My shoes were delivered to Nike and then they just disappeared. I cannot imagine that someone at Nike would destroy those shoes instead of returning them to their rightful owner.

I would not have expected this behavior from a company like Nike. Can anyone look into my complaint using the listed incident number and try to ascertain what happened to my shoes and whether it is Nike corporate policy to just confiscate and/or destroy returns because they were deemed, “unauthorized”.

Please use my email address for correspondence, Thank you for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

I was hoping to find a way to get a hold of Tinker Hatfield. I know it’s a far-fetched desire for me to get any answer from anyone anywhere, but thought I’d give this a try. Earlier this year, my husband’s sneaker collection was stolen from our 24-hour surveillance, indoor, temperature-controlled U-Haul storage unit. His collection was worth over $25,000 containing deadstock Air Jordans, Lebrons, Kobes, Zoom Rookies, Air Pennys, Air Max, etc – some were exclusives of Sole Collector, NBA 2K, All-Star editions, etc. But one piece was his ultimate grail – 2011 Nike Air Mags in size 12. They were won via the charity auction and we still have the shipping box, which it was neatly stored in all these years. The culprits took everything, every single pair leaving just the shelving unit and the Air Mag shipping box. Needless to say, walking into our unit and seeing the emptiness of everything that my husband worked hard for and collected over the past 10 years, was an absolute nightmare. I felt dizzy and sick and I couldn’t breath, I couldn’t believe what I was experiencing and all the heartache I knew would come in the next few months. It was an overwhelming ordeal trying to work with U-Haul, insurance and the police department. No one wanted to spend the time viewing the surveillance tapes and after nearly a month, was given the surveillance footage to review them ourselves since no one seemed to have the time do so. Fast forward 3 months, the insurance company only paid out $5,000. The Air Mags alone were worth more than that – this was a devastating hit, but we really needed to get away from all the turmoil and negativity. I tried procuring help with a GoFundMe campaign and was unsuccessful with raising anything. Now at 6 months out, the pain and suffering still lingers and I cope with a depressed spouse which in turn makes me depressed as well. It’s hard to move on from the loss, the sentimental value that the Air Mags had – a void that I so desperately want to find a way to fill for my husband. I wish there was a way to find where that pair ended up and just get them back for him. I want to make it right again and I wish every day that I would find that glimmer of hope. Thank you for taking the time to read.

General Audience

To all whom it may concern:

As a concerned citizen of the United States of America, I am writing to whom it may concern for an appeal to all businesses, corporations, organizations, and associations that use or support slavery by buying goods or services from groups that are slave based. Slavery takes away basic human rights and desires, such as imagination, knowledge, and even freedom.
My first point is that slavery can take away peoples imagination and turn them into a simple machine with no thought for themselves. In this case there is a little boy, who sees a school and thinks it’s heaven, “I had never thought there would be something like this.” he stated as he was interviewed. He didn’t have the imagination to even think about something so big or great. Without imagination you cannot be whole, imagine a world with nothing but big grey buildings all exactly alike. The world wouldn’t be what it is today without imagination.
Additionally, knowledge is something that has driven the human race to explore beyond what anyone could even comprehend .Our craving for knowledge, arguably, is what has pushed us and placed us above and beyond to build communities and cites with buildings that touch the clouds. Yet slavery takes that away, a young kid at a cocoa farm in the Ivory Coast doesn’t even know his age! “He insists he is 16, but looks much younger.” Slavery is something that we should all fear and want to put an end to, but sadly most people aren’t even aware of the fact that it goes on in the world today.
My last, yet most important point, is simple…freedom. Do you know that feeling that feeling where you wake up and you open the window to feel the sunlight reflecting onto your skin, and a gentle breeze sliding across your face? When you hear the birds singing and you think “How great is it to be alive and well?” Do you think a slave can wake up and have that same feeling? Here a professor named Ted realizes that slavery hasn’t been put to an end. “There are millions of slaves in the world today, and I thought…No way! Just, no way!” For the average person, someone…in someplace…without freedom is something that is almost impossible to comprehend.
Slavery takes away basic human rights and desires, but if people open there eyes then we can put a stop to it.

Respectfully yours,
Nathan Sauseda

Both have been wasting time looking for the TWO (and of course different) major keys they need that OBVIOUSLY I have the answers for. No one has ever studied golf keys like I have for more than 50 years. I have studied both of them since their college days and ALL the trials and frustrations of being inconsistent, especially now. All I need is two four hour sessions and two rounds of golf individually. I will not be playing, just coaching. It makes me very sad to see these two spectacular ICONS lost in their primes.

I contacted Nike, sent them in for inspection and was told normal wear and tear, from excessive heat or water. I have never contacted Nike for a problem with any of their shoes until now. I am just blown away that I am being told it is my fault, that these shoes are not standing up to the Nike name..

I have worn and loved the Nike Eclipse sneaker for the past few years, but to my dismay they have changed them! Last year I bought the Eclipse herring bone sneaker and loved it! very comfortable, good arch support — wonderful to walk in, lightweight. Now Nike has changed it to more of a running shoe — which I don’t need — and has introduced the inset sock that really makes the shoe uncomfortable!!! And it’s mesh on top, which in the wintertime in Northern California, is not warm enough! Again — more a running shoe than a walking shoe. I tried on several different styles of Nike’s but each one had a less comfortable fit — not very good on the arch support area, awful fluorescent colors, too sloppy in the toe box area etc. I ended up buying Sketchers, which I don’t really like, but they at least hold my foot. Bring back the old Eclipse sneakers!!! Nike has enough running shoes and the only time I would run is if there is a fire on my butt. Don’t ruin a great fit and get rid of those horrible inset sock at the tongue of the shoe — they hurt!!!

Hello Nike,
On January 3,2015 I bought my 12 year old son a pair of Chuckposite. The shoes cost $230.00. Today is January 17th, one of his shoe lace holder has broken. This happen sometime last week. It has only been 2 weeks, there should not be any malfunction in a $200.00 pair of sneakers within 2 weeks, especially one of this nature. He cannot lace up his shoe properly. I believe this to be a manufacturing problem. My son has had many of Nike products( Lebrons, previous Charles Barkley, and Jordans). He takes care of this shoes. I am a single parent. I work hard for my money. Not to throw it away on Nike expense. Can you please contact me with a resolution to this problem?

We think it is time for NIKE to hire some different people in their design office. WHY are the U OF OREGON CHAMPIONSHIP UNIFORMS LACKING THE SCHOOL COLORS!! THIS IS A HISTORY MAKING GAME!! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? MAKE NEW ONES WITH THE YELLOW/GREEN!

AND WHILE YOU ARE AT IT, YOU CAN RE-DESIGN THE OREGON STATE LOGO TO LOOK LIKE A BEAVER!!

Nike… My kids stood in several lines like the 7th in line in all the lines they stood injust to be turned around. The stores are giving away the tickets to people they know and that not fair to other people. At one location in Cleveland kids were trampled over and peppered spray by police that’s insane something need to happen before someone get hurt badly……….

Your shopping experience sucks. Your online stores are crap. And the worst part is your shoes arent even made in america instead from slave labor in other countries. ANY respectable american would NOT buy your products but they will because there morons…….

Just thought you should know there is a company out there using your “just do it” slogan. The company is Le-Vel. Promoters of their product “thrive” are using “just do it” to try and lure customers. Please crush them.

Dear nike, I used to love your shoes and your motto, “Just do it! ” I get technology, manufacturing and endorsements all cost money. I loved that every middle class person could enjoy style and comfort at a affordable price. You represented every hard working teenager, thug, jock or nerd during my generation. But when did the shoe become more then comfort and a representation of your motto, “just do it! ” How can I buy a pair of air Jordans for my son at 240 dollars and let him do just that. If I do decide to purchase these shoes because my son has worked for everything. He deserves the excitement of a woman buying a 300 dollar purse. How ever, I am not excited about it. The only thing that the shoes will get as they are worn out and thrown in the trash 1 year later along with my money. Is a memory of how many people said. “Nice shoes. ” and the feeling of what was I thinking wearing those, those shoes were wack. Kind of like when we thought red wings and zcavaricci pants tucked and rolled were cool. Man why should kids pay this much to look stupid two years later. Fashion sucks it causes bullying and signs of social clicks and class. When I was a teenager and heard just do it! I thought I could change the world, jump higher, run faster and look good doing it wearing nike swoosh symbol. Thanks for that. But no thanks to your high price tags so the younger generation feels as good as we all did. Sighs. ..
Signed proud parent of a fashion teenager victim.

Why does your Nike outlet store not carry women’s basketball shoes? Sure, you can order them (for $140+) but none in the store!!! Not only do you not carry women’s basketball shoes, but you don’t even have below a size 7 in a men’s shoe! I am disappointed in Nike and I would think Nike would be a supporter of women’s sports! By the way, in the men’s section, I would estimate 15 different types of shoes. You have alienated an entire group of high school athletes who will have to buy a different brand!

I wished Nike would take part like Adidas and offer employee store coupon if you belong to a fitness center. I am sure us senior citizens would really appreciate it. Trying to stay fit and healthy is what is being recommended. I truly like Nike products and would prefer to shop there. Thank you for your time.

I am a high school basketball coach in a small school in Northeast Washington. Our area suffers from the highest unemployment rate in Washington State.
As a school, we are essentially the social life of the community. Our sports programs depend on passing levies and local community groups and clubs and our programs suffer greatly for specific needs that ought to be provided but are not. As an example, we have no sports towels..Zip, nada, none which results in our teams and PE participants not showering after a workout. I believe hygiene is very important but do not know how to help the kids.
So, I am asking if there is any way Nike can assist knowing that the we cannot look like we have zero ability to look like we being sponsored…That being said, anything would help.l

Can You Help My Daughter Run Again
It is with great sadness that I inform you that our Lamonna has been diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia Disease. It came on suddenly out of nowhere. Basically her body can’t produce blood at this time to supply her body with oxygen and other vital things it needs like platelets. A bone marrow transplant is the only thing that will totally cure her. She is being hospitalized today for the next 14 days to under go a very complex treatment in hopes it can put it in remission. She has had blood transfusions and a couple of painful procedures in the past 3 weeks. The hardest news to hear was that she can’t return to school until January where she is the captain of the Varsity track team. Her immune system cannot handle germs & considering Lamonna is a honor student and loves track, this has been horrible for her to accept. All that being said, although I have medical insurance it doesn’t begin to cover our bills which at this point have reached 25,000 we are working on getting other assistance but I can’t work at this time and there are deductibles that need to be paid to keep all she needs going . This is very hard for us as I have always been a very independent person but considering it’s for our beloved Lamonna I must humble myself and ask for your help. Thank you in advance & please keep Lamonna and my family in your prayers. Sincerely Monica

Your customer service is horrible. I’ve been trying to get through to them for an hour and I keep getting hung up on before I can even talk to someone. So, I’ll put my concerns here, I guess. I have 5 boys & none of them will ever wear Nike as long as you continue to have Vick’s as your spokesperson. And, expect the same from any other human being with a heart. That man is a monster! He has tortured dogs for his entertainment & will never be forgiven by the animal lovers of the world. If you insist on supporting him, we will not support you.

Good morning,

I have been waiting in line for two days to get my daughter the gamma blues 11, and the stores did not have tickets. They gave them out two weeks before the shoes came out. Some stores had a raffle for them. It needs to be a better system for the release of the Jordan’s. I am single parent barely making it and I have to tell my asthmatic daughter that she can not get them for Christmas. It is real bad that they only get a few pair of 7 youth at each store! What can you do to not make my child be disappointment for Christmas? I can be reached at 757-338-XXXXX or kierhoXXXXXX@yahoo.com

complaint……I have bought three pairs of GO WALK shoes due to the comfort. after just a few months the soles wear down on the ball of the foot. I feel these shoes should last much longer and I hesitate to buy another pair.
