What was the world's first Nike shoe?

Nike was founded in 1964 as Blue Ribbon Sports by Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight.

In 1966 Blue Ribbon Sports opened it's first retail outlet selling sportswear, including the Japanese made Tiger running shoes.

In 1971 graphic design artist Carolyn Davidson created the famous Nike 'Swoosh' logo and sold it to the company for $35.00 USD.

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.
