Nike, it's known by the slogan "Just Do It". The slogan and the company was created by Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman. They created Nike on January 25th, 1964 in Portland, Oregon. Bill Bowerman had put advertisements up around town. The ads seemed to work. They soon traveled to more places like Chicago, New Orleans, and New York City. Bill Bowerman had decided to move to New York to sell some clothes. Lucky enough, Phil Knight was his first customer. That's when the 2 men decided to work on making Nike one of the best known companies ever. By 1980 there were already 486 stores nation wide.
