NIKE By: brandon k

The first Nike shoes were made inside a waffle iron. Bowerman’s first breakthrough moment for creating his footwear came in 1971, when he and his wife were making waffles for breakfast: It sparked an idea for a grooved pattern on the sole of tennis shoes to help athletes grip running tracks.

The Nike logo represents motion and speed. The shape of the Nike logo is an arch of movement.
