Nike On My Feet V1 ( Nike Air Max 1 )


DJ Mars ( History Of Mixtapes ) hit me on the head about the sneaker thing..My sneaker collection ( I usually rock Nike, but yesterday i got these Pony joints which was crazy - Grey & Dunagree Blue ) is just about crazy as my mixtape joints..Let me know what you got..No bootleg joints..lol !!! See the history down below...


Nike all started with Phil Knight, a middle distance runner and accounting student at the University of Oregon, and Bill Bowerman Phil’s coach. Their love to sports is what brought them together, but they also had a love for technology of sports shoes and apparel. In 1962 Knight finished his studies, and went on a trip around the world. While in Japan, Knight started to importing Japanese running shoes to the United States, only investing $500, and in return had 200 pairs of sneakers in the U.S.While Phil was working for Onitsuka Tiger, he thought it would make a lot more profit if he started producing their own shoes. In 1971 employee Jeff Johnson thought up the name Nike (after the Greek goddess of victory). Phil Knight had finally obtained a name for the now huge company, but he needed a logo. Caroline Davidson, who met Phil while she was a student at University of Oregon. She was asked to design the logo for Nike, which is well known across the world “The Swoosh”.
