Nike was founded in 1964 as Blue Ribbon Sports, and it officially became Nike Inc. in 1971. The company was created by Bill Bowerman — a track-and-field coach — and Phil Knight, a middle-distance runner from Portland who was enrolled in the University of Oregon. The first Nike shoes were made inside a waffle iron. Bowerman had the idea for a grooved pattern on the sole of trainers to help athletes grip running tracks, the rest is history.
