How It Started

Phil Knight knew he had to get some endorsements and the Summer Olympics so he went out and got Steve Prefontaine. That was his first major endorser. After that he got Michael Jordan and then Nike became HUGE and with sales prices booming they even started a brand just for Jordan himself. After all he is the GOAT
