The whole story of the fashion giant began in 1964 under the name Blue Ribbon Sports. The small company was founded long ago by athletics coach Bill Bowerman and his former student Phil Knight. Two years later, they opened their first store and a few years after that, in 1972, they launched a shoe collection under Nike brand.
Cut. It's 2022 and Nike is a global giant that sets the direction, the trend and its products are loved by people all over the world, including you and your shoe closet. You could write volumes about Nike. The brand has so many stories behind it that even if a feature film was made, it wouldn't be enough. Instead, let's talk about what Nike sneakers are the most popular ones and why.
The classic of all classics. The white Air Force 1 is perhaps the most worn sneaker on the streets and we're not surprised. The silhouette fits everyone, plus you can wear it with sweatpants or jeans, girls might even wear it with a dress, and we've even seen it with a suit, like at a wedding. Check out models like the Air Force 1 Shadow or the Air Force 1 Pixel.
A sneaker that someone either hates or loves. It's kind of a love & hate relationship like with peanut butter. Its shape isn't for everyone and it takes a while to fall in love, but once you do, there's no going back. Try it for yourself. You can't go wrong with the OG Neon colorway or the collaboration with Japanese Atmos, for example.
Originally, the Dunks were designed for playing basketball, but then they became popular among skaters and especially by everyone who loves a comfortable, slightly chunky (Dunky) sneaker with a swoosh on the side. In addition to the classic Dunks, you'll also find pairs from the Nike SB Dunk line. You'll recognize these mainly thanks to their more robust tongue, so that your ankle experiences a little less impact when skating. The upper materials are chosen to better fit and grip the skateboard surface.
Not to forget, you can also find sneakers from renowned collaborations such as Nike x Off-White, Nike x Travis Scott or Nice x Sacai.
