Nike Court Borough Mid History

Nike’s core has always revolved around sports; in fact, it is the brand’s foundation and basis in everything they create. Apart from running, before basketball, Nike’s first involvement in the world of sports is in the field of tennis.

Tennis players were seen wearing basketball-inspired shoes as the high structure of popular basketball shoes offered extra support, which made them great to use while playing tennis. Moreover, the high silhouette was very popular and stylish during those days.
