This cool tank top features a big print graphic of the iconic Nike swoosh logo and a super soft rayon tri-blend material. Nike is the world's largest supplier of sportswear. It was founded by the University of Oregon student athlete and coach duo Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman. Originally called Blue Ribbon Sports, they changed the name in the 70s. Around this time is also when they introduced the swoosh logo as the brand's signature symbol. Graphic design student Carolyn Davidson designed the logo and was initially only paid $35 for her work. However, once the brand became popular in the 80s, she was paid appropriately for her design with a generous portion of shares in the company and a diamond ring.
Nike has solidified their reputation as a top sportswear brand in part by partnering with well known athletes and professional sports organizations. Nike has sponsored the NFL, NBA, WNBA, and MLB. Some well known Nike sponsored athletes include basketball star LeBron James and football player Russell Wilson.
