Nike is a sports and lifestyle brand that is worn by many students at Gorzycki. It was founded in 1964 by University of Oregon track athlete Phil Knight, and his coach Bill Bowerman. They started it to satisfy the lack of good running shoes, and began by selling from the back of a truck. They were told that they wouldn’t succeed as a business, but instead became one of the biggest companies in the world. Seventh grader Lawrence Wilkerson explains what Nike products he owns, and what his favorite is.

“I have Nike shoes, windbreakers, pants, and socks,” Wilkerson said. “My favorite is either a Nike windbreaker or Nike shoes.”

Eighth grader Seth O’Brien disagrees with Wilkerson on what he likes. He explains his position on what the best product is. “Their best product is definitely their soccer cleats, especially the Mercurials, because they are comfortable and easy to run in. Nike is known for being stylish and trendy. Wilkerson explains what makes the style different from other brands.

“I feel like the style of Nike products is new and fresh,” O’Brien said. “They have their own type of style, and it’s not copying off Adidas or anything like that.”

Some people feel like Nike has sort of gone out of style over the years, and other brands have taken over. Seventh Grader Karsten Ivey explains how this has happened.

“Nike used to be really cool, but it has gotten kind of boring over the years, ” Ivey said. “Adidas is definitely more stylish.”

Nike is known for having good quality, but some people feel like it isn’t any better than other brands. Ivey explains why he feels this way.

“Nike is pretty much like other brands and has good quality,” Ivey said. “It isn’t bad, but it isn’t any better than other brands either.”

One of Nike’s specialties is having comfortable products. This is one reason why people like the brand. Wilkerson explains what the comfort level of Nike is.

“Nike products are pretty comfortable, and they have a nice feel,” Wilkerson explains.

O’Brien agrees that Nike is comfortable, but feels like other brands are have a better comfort level. He explains what the difference is.

“They are nice and comfortable, but they don’t have very good support,” O’Brien said. “Under Armour has more support and are still light and easy to run in.”

There is lots of competition when it comes to the best sports brand, and it is a popular debate among students. While Nike is still very popular, many students think other brands are better. Ivey explains what his favorite brand is and why he likes it.

“Adidas is way better than Nike,” Ivey said. “Adidas has better styles and is more trendy, but Nike is kind of boring now.

Wilkerson agrees with Ivey on which brand is best. He explains why he has that opinion.

“I wouldn’t pick Nike over other brands,” Wilkerson said. “Other brands, like Adidas have a whole other style and are cooler and nicer.”
