The shoe that started it all….
In 1972 Bill Bowerman used his wife’s waffle iron to mold the sole of a shoe that has better traction, creating a shoe called the ‘Moon Shoe’ and distributed it to four track & field athletes at the 1972 Olympic Trials.
That same year the first line of Nike footwear hit the stores.In 1978 Blue Ribbon Sports is renamed Nike Inc.
