When it comes to running shoes, I'm not fussy, so it's probably just chance that my last two - and favourite - pairs of trainers have been made by Nike.
At one point I spent about £100 on a pair of specialised running shoes from a specialised running shop. About the only benefit I gained from that experience, was having my gait analysed - I need a lot of support because I overpronate. Said £100 trainers lasted about 3 months and not having the money to replace them with a similar pair, I went to JJB Sports and said "I have £50, what can that get me?". I didn't expect much - I thought that trainers with the level of support I needed weren't widely available. I was wrong.
£45 got me a pair of Nike Lunarglide trainers in the sale. They have lasted me 2 years - to be fair I don't run much and when I do it's on a treadmill - I mostly work out in a gym doing cardio and weights. These trainers are great because they offer full support on the inside (I overpronate and need this) but they were still lightweight. They have what Nike calls a Lunarlite sole which has decent grip and a sturdy tread but doesn't weigh the earth. They wash well and come up pretty white - I know you aren't supposed to machine wash them but it usually works out OK - and really two years later the only reason I bought a new pair is because there are some cracks starting at the top of the sole.
My Nike Lunarglide trainers taught me that you don't need to spend a fortune on clothing and footwear to perform well in the gym and get products that last. I still use those trainers for general wandering around, although I no longer work out in them.
My new trainers are Nike Lunarswift 2's - they look a bit strange as they have lots of big holes in under a mesh but they are very comfortable. They were supposed to be £70-odd, but they cost me £17 as my local JJB was closing down. Again, they have a full inner support although this tread is a Lunarlon with Dynamic Support, and they are still lightweight. They also have the Nike Plus system (still not looked it up) but one of my favourite things about them is how padded they are around the top of the foot. I like to use trainer socks - the ones that don't go over your ankle - so having a trainer that is soft in this area to avoid rubbing is very important. These particular trainers are strictly being kept for the gym and they still look like new.
One of the things that has impressed me the most about both pairs of trainers, is how easy they were to find. I feel like Nike offers a great range of choice whether you need full or little support, black, white or blue, and of course they cater for all sizes.
I don't think I own any Nike clothing but if it is anything like the shoes, it will be good quality, comfortable, you won't mind being seen in it, and well worth the money.
I do quite a lot of walking, and also run a lot. For both these activities I often use trainers, and it is important to me that they are comfortable, durable and reasonably stylish. The latter is less important than the former, but nevertheless I do like to own trainers that are easy on the eye.
Nike produces a huge range of sporting products, not just footwear. The brand is synonymous with quality and durability, and it is not difficult to find a sports store that stocks a good range of Nike products. It is for these reasons that I decided to invest in a good pair of trainers around eighteen months ago, and I have not been disappointed in their performance so far.
My trainers are white in appearance, with a silver middle section running around the sides. They have grey and blue grips and a white fabric band around the inside of the shoes. The laces are long and textured so you can get a good grip on them when you are tying them in place and making sure the trainers fit well. The insides of the shoes are slightly padded for comfort, and although the fit well around the top of my feet I find they do rub slightly at the back, owing to the rough edge.
The trainers have fantastic grips, and I used them often during the icy winter. They allowed me to maintain a good hold on the roads and pavements, too. Running in the trainers is fantastic, as they seem to have an air cushion feel, which I feel seems to propel me further into the air, which is especially good when running uphill.
Nike is a reputable sports brand, and while my trainers provide fantastic comfort and grip, they could be slightly better designed in the inside at the back so they do not rub as much. I am interested in experimenting with other Nike goods in the future, and based on my experiences so far am looking forward to doing so.
Nike was as we all the Greek goddess of victory and was characterised by her need to tick everything as she went around Mount Olympus, Nike the company sponsors Tiger Woods who likes to go around in a sub-par score.
Seriously, Nike is characterised by the tick and the slanted NIKE lettering, the tick is endemic on many sports persons clothing and hat wear. They also sell trainers and are best known for the Nike air famously advertised by Michael Jordan in the early nineties. The company has for some time had a more edgy outlook than the more traditional Adidas, they feature heavily in skateboarding and outdoor extreme sports.
The brand and company are of course interesting but what do I have which is made by NIKE, well its a surprisingly large list adn varied too. I have a pair of trainers, a sports bag, at least one cap but I think I have another couple somewhere, a Barcelona football shirt and rather strangley a cycling water bottle. I use the bottle all the time on my indoor cycling machine but can't for the life of me remember where it came from.
One thing I do know is that my Nike trainers are now approaching 3 years old, I bought them for around £60 which seemed a lot of money at the time but they have lasted constant wearing, playing football and cricket and still look good. The sole are still in good condition and the laces are still reasonably in one piece rather than frayed. I suspect that £60 was one of the better choices I made rather than 3 or 4 £30 pairs from the local supermarket.
The facts are that branded goods like Nike, adidas, Reebok offer the best value for money because they last far longer than other trainers, I can't see any reason why my trainers shouldn't last another couple of years and if I really wanted to be anal I suspect you could get 10 years use out of a decent pair of trainers - the smell might not be so good though.
This quality is endemic through out the NIKE range, their golf wear is brilliant and their golf balls seem to last forever. Yes, they are a bit expensive but here money is a good indicator of quality.
I'd recommend Nike to anyone looking to spend a few quid more than the norm on sporting equipment or sportswear because ultimately you are buying quality.
Nike Dunk High be true iD shoe
The Nike Dunk High was released in 1985 as is still popular today. I think they are awful my self but they are very popular with the teenagers today.
I purchased a pair from nike iD uk direct for a Christmas present for my daughter. For weeks she had been sat on her computer playing with various designs and colours until she choose the Dunk Hi. At £78.20 plus £6.50 delivery I wasn't best pleased. But being a Christmas gift that she really wanted I went ahead.
You can track your order on line so you know what's going on with your trainer each step of the way. They contact you via email when you goods have been dispatched with a tracking ref. Again you can track you trainers on their trip across the world until they reach you home.
I must say I was very impressed with the quality when they arrived 21 days later. Considering they are made to ordered and it was Christmas I half expected them to be rushed out and not of top quality. How wrong I was, exactly as described, looked the same as they did on the web. The personal iD I thought may have been printed on but it's not it is stitched on. You also get an extra set of laces which you can have in a different colour if requested. The box they cam in also made them look that little bit more special. A complete black box with Nike iD in orange which slide out.
All in all for the £78.20 I paid as I had a free delivery code I now think they are worth every penny after all on the high street we would normally spent £50/60 for a pair of trainers so the extra money for a pair in colours which she chosen and her added iD which makes them unique is well worth it.
Customer service excellent
Product high Quality
overall i would rate 5/5 stars simply because of the pure quality of the clothes, football boots and trainers e.t.c. there are lots of products nike sells these include
-most other sporting equipment
my favourites from nike are the air force ones,these come in normal and high tops, these are very stylish,lots of different designs of them and are really comfy!
others are air max 95's these are especially good for sporting, i would wear these if i was doing something where i would be running a lot.these are £110 though so may be quiet expensive for some.
nike also sell lots of nice stylish t-shirts,there is currently an offer on at most good sporting shops where you can buy 2 nike T shirts for only £20.
nike also sell a lot of good football boots such as mercurvial and vapors e.t.c.
if you want to know where to buy some nike products then i strongly recommend JD as it sells a lot of qulity products there.
When i used to play football i always went for Nike football boots because i thought there colour range is very good going from vibrant colours to darker colours waht ever you preferce. I think the desgin on the nike football boots is very clever to have it to the left hand side on the boot .
I rate the quality of nike football boots so they will last a lot longer than going to buy a cheaper pair of boots.
I think they have a very good range of sizes for the football boots from size 2-13. I like the colour of the nike tick because it goes very well with the football boots .
I think nike football boots can be very Expensive or less you can catch them in a sale.
I think nike football boots are good as well because loads of the PRO footballs have nike football boots in all sorts of diffrent colours

As the title implies You may believe that Nike Zoom air are blistering as in red hot. Well my friends you'd be sadly mistaken, although these boots are made to a higher standard than their competitors the blisters i recieved from these were not of this earth. However i will give credit were it is due. these boots are made to a high standard of quality and maybe it was my feet? Although other who have these boots have also complained. In conclusion these boots are good quality for their price however if u play as much as i do you may soon find your self investing in an alternative pair.
As a keen athlete, I always find it is worth buying the best trainers you can find. They invariably pay off in the long run (excuse the pun), and prevent a number of injuries from flaring up. A lot of the trainers sold nowadays are meant only for casual wear, and are not really suited to use in sports. I have always been a big fan of Nike's running shoes. In fact, I very rarely buy any other type of trainer now, so well do I know the characteristics of their shoes. The Nike Air Huarache is my all-time favourite trainer. Originally released in the early 90's, it was at the time revolutionary in its design. At this time, the concept of an air bubble in the sole was still quite new. The unconventional styling of the shoe still attracts a lot of attention. The upper part of the shoe is built around a sandal type structure - it sounds odd, but works very well in practice. The straps of the "sandal" hold a sock trainer, which fits the shape of your foot perfectly. The shoe is one of the brightest you will see, with a white lower, and blue and green sock. The shoe is the most comfortable I have worn, as the sock part adapts to fit your foot perfectly. The trainer is quite substantial, but is much lighter than most other cross trainers. I like to wear a light trainer most of the time, but these are perfectly acceptable. The cushioning is very good, and the shoe provides a lot of support around the sides. One of the most notable thing about Nike's trainers is the high arch in the insole. This is ideal for me, but may be less suitable for people with flatter feet. I have owned 4 pairs of these trainers over the years. I still have my original pair, which still fit me like a glove (mixed metaphor?!). Nike rereleased the trainer again recently, and I was lucky enough to snap up a new pair. Hopefully this pair will still be going strong in 10 years time - there aren't many trainers tha
t could last that long, and still be as comfortable as when they were bought.
I think Nike is an excellent brand, the sportswear is excellent and it is brilliant to wear. I personally think Nike at the moment is head and shoulders above the rest. The make is good and the quality and designs of their products are excellent. They keep on producing new products that really catch the eye. The only problem is that the items are expensive and you do feel you could buy something cheaper but my excuse for my tennis wear is that there’s no point of buying something that will fade colour so we always go for Nike. My husbands bought some Nike air max tailwind for £110 which is expensive but they will last him a good few years. They are suitable for formal wear with jeans if he wants to as they look very good but also if we fancy a game of tennis in the Summer they will be very suitable. They are very comfortable and the grip on the soles is very good. They have a visible air sole unit for shock absorption and they are very comfortable running shoes. They have a zip fastening over concealed lace which makes the trainer look very good. If you are looking for running shoes then I would recommend you these, comfortable and good looking. Expensive but long lasting. I just love the logo, so simple yet very distinctive. I don’t know whether you have been to the massive Nike Store is Oxford Street London, that is excellent and you’ll find every Nike product you will ever want. I don’t know whether you have seen the Nike adverts as the moment, but they are just excellent, the ‘kind of get up and go’ ones which you can’t help but love. On one advertisements a guy rings the park keeper at 5am and asks him if he would open the gates because he wants to go for a run, the message being let ‘Nike be your wake up call’…..mmmm a good advert but I don’t about that early. I think Nike attracts so many people because the clothing is very good, most
items that we have bought have still lasted us along time. And there’s also a very good choice, of items so you’ll never get stuck. Have you notices that most of the top sports people wear Nike brands, people like Tiger Wood, and most footballers. It’s definitely one step ahead of the likes of Adidas. I know what my choice would be every time. They have the marketing spot on, really good adverts and if the prices were lower I would love this label/product even more. For quality sportswear this is excellent.
I think that Nike make some great football equipment and I am not going to put them down for that at all, but I have heard that their new Nike Geo swerves. I own one of these magic balls and i can safely say that these balls don't swerve more than any other ball does.I think that this ball look's great and i'd buy it for it's looks,but if you are going to buy it because of this swerve theory,well don't. The price of this ball is what most footballs are these days,around £12-£17,the leather on this ball is of a good standard and will last a long time through the bad weather this country constintly faces. They are light and easy to kick as a lot of balls are hard,and needed to be softend down a little,unless you want a broken foot. We use these at my local pub team for training and they work a treat as they are light,dependable and won't burst without force.As you may be aware they are now using these footballs in the premiership,as a good sign this shows tha quality of the ball,but once again don't be taken in by the "swerve" factor.
Thought that Mitre were the world's best football manufacturer? Well, although they are pretty good at what they do, I always find that the good old Mitre Delta's wear out after 5 or 6 months at best - and that's just having a kick about up the park! Admittedly, I am getting a bit old to play football, but I like the odd spout here and there, so it'd be reassuring to know I had a decent football to use! My Nike football hasn't even needed to be re-pumped with air - after 11 months of usage. Nike are the new Mitre - they produce stylish footballs that are now being used by nearly everyone! The balls look more stylish, and, as the advert says 'they're rounder' and they certainly are! You can achieve great spin with Nike footballs, although they seem to catch the air a lot, which helps with curling the ball on a blustery day - watch out Ian Harte! The ball costs a fairly reasonable £14.99 and is avaliable from all good sports stores - I got mine from the Nike store in London near to when it first opened! Excellent football, with that all familiar Nike 'swoosh' on it. You know it's gonna be good when they spend £10 million on advertsing the thing!! Great product from a great brand - I couldn't believe how new it still looks after a lot of casual play. Highly recommended! Jester
A recent TV documentary exposed Nike as a manufacturer that takes advantage of child labour in India and other eastern countries, to manufacture its footware at low cost. The company, along with Gap, have long claimed that they do not support child labour and never utilise it. Children as young as ten were captured on film, working in cramped, over heated conditions, for more than sixteen hours a day. These children received very little for their labour but were forced to continue working in order to eat. Their families are so poor that they cannot afford to feed all their children and companies like Nike jump in and capitalise on this poverty and suffering.
I was just reading some other peoples opinions on Nike trainers. I would like to think that i am a fairly fashionable person and Nike trainers are the things to have. Yeah, ok, some of them are expensive but surely it is worth the money to look fashionable. Yeah ok i probably give into peer pressure. If i walked around in Hitec trainers my mates would probably take the piss out of me for weeks. But i do like Nike trainers and i think that they are the things that if you want to look cool you should be wearing. I don't think that they are boring like one of the people said under this topic earlier. There are so many designs and if treated properly can last for ages and ages so you get a lot of wear out of them. They may be £70 for a pair but to look good and to have a decent pair of trainers surely that can't be a bad thing. Yeah ok you could get a pair of Hitec trainers for £10 but do they have the quality or the stylish look. i don't think that i have to answer that. Nike trainers are the top notch trainers to have and anybody with them is thought to be cool. Maybe this is a stupid thing and it shows how much the world is becoming baced around image. But i know which i would choose out of Nike and Hitec.
