Nike was founded in 1964 by Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight as Blue Ribbon Sports. In 1971 it officially became Nike Inc. The name Nike comes from the Greek goddess of victory. Since the 1980s, the brand has established a noticeable presence in the sneaker culture around the world. Basketball shoes such as the Nike Air Force, the Nike Dunk and Nike running shoes such as the Nike Air Max and the Nike Huarache are just a few examples of the success stories. Nike also moved forward in the field sponsoring many high profile athletes such as Michael Jordan, which evolved into the Jordan brand. Baskèts embraces Nike sneakers as an indispensable leader bringing innovation to the sneaker market and reviving its authenticity.
Nike is a go-to brand and is indispensable these days. It can be seen everywhere and is one of the largest sports brands in the world. That is why we are also very happy with the collaboration that has arisen between Nike and Baskets. The collection at Baskets consists of Nike sneakers, hoodies, shorts and T-shirts and will be restocked with cool items every season. The nike items are extremely popular with Baskets. To date, we have worked with Nike on a number of successful (marketing) projects, for example many 'Air Max Days' and many great projects to come.
The choice for selling different Nike models is not only based on the past with the Nike classics, but we are also a fan of Nike innovation and contemporary silhouettes. We are always looking for models that are easy to wear under any outfit, regardless of age. Models such as the Nike Blazer Mid '77 VNTG White Sail Light Bone, Nike WMNS AF1 LXX White Game Royal University Red, Nike Daybreak-Type Cargo Khaki University Gold are examples of models that can be worn by everyone in different ways. The way we see our collection is a good range of classics, refined styles combined with exclusive Nike releases.
