Previously known as the Blue Ribbon Sports (BRS), Nike was founded on January 25, 1964, in Washington, USA. Its founders were Phil Knight, a middle-distance runner from Portland, and Bill Bowerman, a track-and-field coach who was in search of ways to enhance his students’ performance. Together, Knight and Bowerman came down in history as the fathers of one of the most popular and reputable sports shoe and apparel brands in the world.

BRS was initially a distributor of Onitsuka Tiger running shoes which they import from Japan. By the end of its first year, the company grossed $8,000 by selling 1,300 pairs of shoes. In their second year, their sales rose to $20,000, and in their third year, Blue Ribbon Sports has officially opened its first retail store in Santa Monica, California. As their business became more established, they started manufacturing their own line of shoes.
