Nike is a popular sportswear brand that produce clothing for males and females alike.
They produce cotton t shirts with their logo on it - which is a rounded tick. Nike clothing is very good quality which you would expect for the price. T shirts usually start at about £15 with trousers and jackets being anything from £30 - £60.
They also produce trainers which range from £60 - £110, but they really are good quality and worth the money. They last longer than many other brands of trainers and are of the highest standard. They are washable and regain shape after a machine wash.
Personally I would never buy any other sports wear than Nike because it is good quality for your money and last long without fading and shapelessness.
Nike is available from many high street sportswear stores such as JD and JJB. Designed to the exact specifications of Championship Athletes
Ok well.... I've read through a few negative reviews of Nike and I'm not at all impressed!!!! lol
I love Nike its one of my top brands of sportswear. When I was dieting all I wanted was to be able to fit into trackie bottoms that were branded! Call me a lemming but I wouldn't dream of wearing unbranded trainers in particular. Must be a hang up from my school days lol
To me Nike has fabby advertising, and a great range of sports stuff!
The ladies range is great and the prices are reasonable!
I've had a pair of Nike trainers for 2 years now and they've withheld the test of time and if they look grubby I sling them in the wash and they come out as good as new. Nothing I've had of Nike has been bad so I'll be sticking with them! The womens sizes in the sports clothes are 8-16. The sizes do come fairly small though compared to Adidas.
A bit of history of Nike....
Nike was originally known as Blue ribbon sports and was founded by a track athlete called Phil Knight and his coach Bill Bowerman in January 1964.
then company started out the back of Phil's car with shoes they purchased and sold on.
They opened their first store in 1966.
It wasn't till 1971 that the first trainer had the now very famous swoosh (tick logo) and 1978 blue ribbon changed their name to...NIKE!
Nike has more than 500 locations around the world and offices located in 45 countries.
Most of the factories are located in Asia, including China, Taiwan, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Pakistan, Philippines, and Korea.
Nike plans to be carbon neutral by 2011.
Lots of celebrity endorsements are there to pull us in with fans such as Ronaldo, Ronaldihno, to name but a couple.
In conclusion... except no imitations!
I bought a pair of NIKE court traditions, thought they looked well made, was pleased with the price at only £35 i usually pay a bit more for most of my shoes an trainers. I wore them to work which is a sedentry job cab controller. After a few hours my heals started to burn but the only walking i had done was get up and make myself coffee you'd expect a trainer to be able to stay comfortable after that much exercise ! Well no my usually agile feet after five and a half hours wear were bleeding. I couldn't even force myself to walk to the chemist for help. I had to phone my mum and ask her to bring me a change of shoes... Thank GOD for my kickers...
.1) We all know nike for its fashion and, yes, it may be good, but its expensive. Look at that price tag, is it for a TV? A DVD boxset? Even a phone? No, a pair of Shox Nike trainers, with a hefty price tag of around £70-£80, and that is in Soccer Sports, a cheap store. £40 is what they should be sold for at themax. How much money does one company need to make, people abroad are working for 'slave labour', surely they deserve more. SONY, making Playstation 3 components (microchips) havent went abroad, they've just opened a factory in Japan. But not nike, its everywhere in Britain, except in factories.
Still looking through the argos magazine. Finally, not in a fashion magazine selling shirts for above £20, but in the golf section. Stick to your own speciality people; fashion. Leave Ryder and Wilson to take care of Golf. They even sponsor Tiger Woods. For golf, a tour towel and shoe carrier, £9.99 each. I look up and yes, for the name topflite, the shoe bag is £9.99, but the towel £7.99, only £2 difference, but still, saving pounds adds up to saving hundreds eventually.
Bottom of page:
Ryder Umbrella £9.99
Nike Umbrella £12.99
Wilson Umbrella £14.99
Nike umbrella £17.99
Buy a ryder if your going to buy one, in a silent protest to nike, you wont care when you are out on the golf course.
Next page: Golf still.
Wood head covers £9.99
Nike access head covers £19.99
Izzo delux neoprene wood head covers £24.99
2nd most expensive, £10 difference, save your money. So far thats £12 saved.
Now it comes to the clubs. Club quality does matter so i wont be as cynical with this, because, although i said they should stick to fashion, they do good clubs really.
RAM clubs- £189.99
Nike clubs- £299.99
RAM and nike have the same clubs, and RAM had one more club in the pack. Nikes better quality, but not an extra £110 better quality.
The first 2 are for kids, save the pounds. The adults sets have a lot more, but i would buy a £40 or £50 Wilson, not Izzo or Nike. Surely nike is not that good quality, Wilsons a good brand for golf.
There is more on golf, but lets go on to a different sport.
£15 for a good basketball, why buy one for £40, no ball is worth that much unless its signed by Michael Jordan (Its not).
There really is not much else to say. Nike is expensive, more expensive than it needs to be, and people are working for little money making trainers that sell for a lot. Really, buy adidas who dont do as many sports. It may be at an excessive price, but adidas is cheaper.
Hope you enjoyed my first discussion/fashion. I dont know about the reccomendation, so ill leave it at yes. Good quality, but not £££ good.
Noo Shoos - Advantages: Good range of sports and casual wear, Me like very much - Disadvantages: Some of it IS expensive
Nike wear and other branded sports wear are in my opinion, for people who dont know how to be an individual. I dont mean to offend anyone, i am just expressing my opinion. I have read the many opinions on here so far about Nike etc being so wonderful, so this opinion is different. I have put my opinion into numbers. These are the reasons why i hate Nike and other branded sports wear!!! 1) Nike are always trying to promote a sporty and healthy lifestyle, when in fact the poor people who make their shoes etc, live in Asia and Latin America and have to live in extreme poverty and suffer stress and exhaustion from over-work! Why buy from this company when they are treating their workers so poorly and unfairly? This is slave labour and people who buy from them are making it worse 2) Nike don’t really need to do any advertising as they are getting free advertising. The people who buy the clothes are advertising themselves and that’s why more people are wearing them! So the more people who wear them, the more they become advertised! 3) The only reason why people wear Nike clothes is because they are afraid to be an individual. They will think they don’t look cool as it seems to be the fashion these days. They are scared that if they don’t wear the same clothing, then they will not be accepted. They think this sports wear is trendy and makes them feel more popular, when in fact they are the losers! The people you hang around with should accept you for who you are, not the clothes you wear, else they are not real friends at all! 4) Nike wear is so expensive. What is the point of paying an extra £50 or so for a Tee shirt which has got the Nike logo on, when you can buy a much more greater quality, longer lasting, comfier one for a quarter of the price 5) Look at all these people that wont wear fake Nike wear. Fake Nike wear is a lot cheaper than the real thing and at times go un-noticed. I brought my
brother a Nike cap when I went on holiday, as I knew that was the only thing he’d like, and just because it was fake, he wouldn’t wear it. I couldn’t even see any difference. But that just shows how trendy he is. Also I bet a lot of people in England are like that too. 6) I am not saying all people who buy Nike wear are bad, but most of them are. There is a lot in my home town, who wear these clothes, hang around in gangs and cause a lot of trouble and vandalism. The thing I have noticed is that these gangs always wear Nike. The whole of them. I have never seen one gang member wear jeans or anything different to the rest. 7) I remember when I was at school, I used to get teased because I was an individual and felt very happy wearing comfy jeans, skirts and dresses, and I still do. I mean what is the point of wearing uncomfy, very poorly made products just because it may make you trendy! They used to say to me people wouldn’t accept me for wearing those clothes and that I was supposed to wear branded sports wear then I’d have more friends. What a load of crap. It just proves my point about people thinking they have to wear these clothes to fit in. I never listened to those people. I didn’t have many friends, but I didn’t want to copy everyone else! I thought they were so pathetic at the time and still do – I mean they may even ask each other what colour socks they must wear for that day! 8) I know that some people wear branded sports wear for exercising such as running and tennis etc. I am not saying these people are bad for wearing them (though remember that the people who make them are suffering), I am just saying the gangs who wear this clothes and think they are popular etc need to grow up! 9) God didn’t put everyone on this earth to copy each other. He gave everyone their own free will, to do as they please. So why should these people be copying what their friends w
ear? They need to grow up and become an individual (if they know what one is), instead of looking like 10,000 triplets!They should go and get their own lives back, instead of someone elses! 10) There was even an incident in my hometown. There was this asylum family that took the city council to court because they would not give them extra money for Nike wear etc, even though they had home luxuries, which most poor people in England dont even have. What will it be like in the year 2005? Will babies be even screaming at their parents to get them Nike wear? Probally not - though i wouldnt be surprised if it did happen. Or maybe there will be more criminals because the parents of the non-individuals wont be able to afford their clothing. I hope you have found my opinion interesting and that i have not offended anyone who is nice etc who wears these clothes. I just hope you can see it from mine and my boyfriends point of view. Thanks for reading! Oh and if you would like to read about the slave labour that is going on, then go to www.google.co.uk and type in "Nike slave labour" and there are loads of pages with information. And last but not least, i decided to add this comment from my boyfriend "That's very good baby. I would have added something like: They have no self esteem and feel inferior. They want to look like everyone else because they might think they don't have to face up to being an individual. Plus, most sportswear looks like crap." As a quote from Lemmy "Wearing sports clothing 10 sizes too big isn't cool, it's more like a thing the village retard would do"
Yesterday I bought my third pair of Nike trainers. But this time it was different. I spent a massive £100 on them! Normally my limit is around £60 but yesterday I fell in love with a style of Nike trainers, called "Tn’s." These trainers, in my opinion are the best possible range available by Nike. They are however also the most expensive :( But you do get your money’s worth. The air bubbles on the trainers are not only on the side at the back of the trainer but also on the side near the front of the trainers so you get maximum comfort when walking. In fact, it’s like walking on cotton wool – it’s like one of those car adverts where the guy wants to drive the car more than anything else except this time it’s keeping your trainers on more than anything else! Everyone I know who has a pair of Nike Tn’s is 100% satisfied with their buy. They are not only comfortable but also look, well to put it simply, amazing! The general style on Nike Tn’s are lots of lines all leading to the front of the trainers. They also have a lot of fading colour-wise. Now this may sound a little boring but trust me you will love these trainers if you buy them. They are available at most sports stores but JD Sports and Foot Locker specialize in them and they range from £60 to £200!
I am a footballer, and I recently went into my local sports shop to buy some new boots. I saw a very attractive pair of Nike Boots. They had a silver heel, and upon my first impression, they appeared to be of good quality. I then purchased them for £35, a high price for a pair of boots, but when I bought them I thought that I was getting quality boots. So the next day, I went to football training, and after an hour, I returned home. Upon cleaning the boots I was dismayed to find that the surface of the boot had been severely scratched, and ALL the silver on the heels had been worn off. I was upset that I had payed £35, 1/4 of my wages, to buy a pair of boots that were of a dire quality and they were also extremely uncomfortable. I went back to the shop and exchanged the boots for some Adidas, a brand I KNOW I can TRUST, precision boots, for exactly the same price. 2 weeks later, iam pleased to say, the boots still look as good as new, and that is after 4 games and 8 training sessions!!!!!! It is not the first time I have had trouble with the quality of Nike Garments, but I own 10+ Adidas garments, and have never had any trouble at all. Nike Charge ridiculously high prices for their clothes, but the quality is abysmal. I trust Adidas and feel they are one of the best sports companies in the world. I will be not be buying Nike in future, and I advise others not to if they appreciate quality!!!
I bought for the first time the nike shoes at 12 years old. I feel in love with those shoes. I remember that they was called "Nike Pump". I used them for about 2 years, then I bought another pair of nike shoes. Their price was quite high with respects to the shoes of the other brands, like adidas or puma. The shoes I preferred and I still prefer, are the shoes with "AIR" because I think that besides to be confortable these shoes are aesthetically beautiful. Now, I still use Nike shoes and Nike clothes too. Nike shoes are a product that I recommend for who it is standing many hours and who does any tipe of sports. The shoes are available in many colours and you can choose the pair that you like. The shoes produced in the last few years are wonderful for their form, colour, and above they do not create any comfort problem and they're absolutely indestructible! Besides the shoes, Nike produce a great deal of garments as top, short trousers, socks. All strictly signed "Nike". The symbol "Nike" is very very pretty but I do not bear when it is too big in a dress, so I only buy clothes where the symbol is not very evident. The quality is excellent in all the Nike's products and I really hope that they will keep on producing these clothes for a long time. The only bad thing is the price, which is a bit expensive expecially in the shoes.
Nike has to be the best brand of sports wear around. It is stylish, comfortable and there is a very big variety of clothing to choose from. Nike has from toddlers trainers to mens sweatshirts. Not only are they comfortable but they are fashionable aswell. Nike does sell its stuff at pretty high prices though, but I suppose you get what you par for and in this case it is certainly exellent clothes with a great name on them. I own a lot of Nike clothes and hope to own more in the future. I think that the best out of all the ranges are the womans running clothes, their sports tops and shorts, these are not only practical but usually at a reasonable price aswell. I also like the little childrens trainers, you still pay the same amount for a small size 1 pair of nike trainers as you do for a big size 7. But they are very cute and if you have small kids, it is worth paying the money bacause they definately look good. I love Nike and it is by far my favourite brand name, I like its clothes, accessories and trainers. They are all at reasonable prices and do last a long time, I have quite a few Nike clothes that I have had for a long time and they still look like new. It is a great brand name and one of the best around.
Why on earth do all the youths of today were sports clothes??? I can see why when they are playing sprot but why when they are going out or somthing??? Some of the clothes people were today are just down right stupid, I walked past this guy the other day and he was wearing a bright orange tracksuit which looked as if he had just been covered in tango!!! Then there is those anying popper things which they are all wearing, I just need to ask one question........Why?? They dont look nice, There're low quality and there just horrible!! Why cant people just go and buy some decent clothes with ther're money. Secondly It aleays seems to be the people in sports clothing are always the people who are trying to cause trouble, start fights and shout abuse. I find this the case 9 times out of 10. If you wear these clothes because you like them then fair enough, but if you wear them for the hell of it, what the hell do you think your doing??? go and look in the mirror when you have them on.
In 1998 I visited Nike Town in New York with my fiancé (then boyfriend). Whilst there, we did buy a large amount of Nike products, that I doubt we would have bought if we hadn’t been, not for the reason that you could only get them in America, because I am sure that if we searched around London or any of the other big cities in England, we could find them, at a reduced price to what they were in America. A lot of what we bought was bought on impulse, some things were what we planned to buy, and others were bought as presents to take back to my family. I have decided to write down for you the things I can remember buying, and what I (or whoever they were for) thought of them. - 2 Nike Baseball Caps: I bought these for my two nephews who were then seven and nine. We wouldn’t have really bought anything for their family, but because they kindly let myself and my boyfriend stay in their house for a six month period, we felt that we should at least bring the children something back, and Nike Town seemed a pretty ‘cool’ place to have something from. Usually, I wouldn’t spend much on a hat; I would tend to go for the cheapest one I could find. Because of the brand name though, I did find that all products like this were expensive, and I ended up paying £14 for one, and about £6 for the other. They looked to me as if they were pretty fashionable and well made, however, I was still reluctant to buy them, as I gathered they would be worth less. I was convinced into buying them by my boyfriend, who said that they were some of the best hats that I could buy, and they would indeed last along time. Well, that was where he was wrong. My eldest Nephew, Oliver, still has his hat in good condition, and as I am told wears it often. The other boy’s hat went missing though, and it turned up at the bottom of the garden, buried by the dog. After this I decided that I would never buy products like this again for children of this age, a
s it was pretty obvious something would happen to it. - Nike T- Shirts, Sweaters, Jogging Tops, training Tops, Shorts, Tracksuit trousers: Part of the point of being in Nike Town for my boyfriend, was so that he could buy lots of clothes that he could show off to his mates. He also had a practical use for it. He plays a lot of sports, and conveniently needed some new clothes at the time. There were a few offers going, such as buy this, get this half – price and so on, so whilst we were there we decided to buy things for his activities, and also some clothes for casual use for myself. We still have most of the clothes, and I find that they are a lot better made than other brands such as Adidas. The clothes that we did buy were pretty expensive, but then that comes with any brand name. I find that it is not a very good idea buying clothes like this for young children, as they are always growing, therefore it is obvious that they will not fit them for long. Overall I think that products like this for people are very good, as they can literally last forever. - A set of Nike Underwear: I bought these in a pack of knickers, which looked very much like Kalvin Kline knickers, and sports bras, which I did find gave a lot of support. I found that they are very good and last a long time. My boyfriend also bought some cheep boxer shorts, which he only wears when he seems to have no other clean pairs. He claims that they are uncomfortable (I just think he’s put more weight on to be honest) and he says that he prefers to buy cheep boxers from Burtons. - Nike Swimming Costume: My old costume was getting a bit worn down, and I decided it was time to buy a new one. So, I went into a shop, and had a look. They had a huge range, and I ended up with a bright yellow stylish one, that still fits well, and is very comfortable and easy to swim in. I give it thumbs up. - Nike trainers and football boots: My boyfriend bought a pair of both, an
d they did not last long at all. He spent a lot of money on the boots with screw in studs, and lost them after a while. The boots were not really that wide as were the trainers. I still prefer to stick with Puma boots, even though not as fashionable, they are a lot cheaper, and a lot more comfortable. - Nike Jewellery: This was bought as a present for my boyfriend’s sister; he had a selection of cheep chains and rings, that he thought she would like. Not the most glamorous of presents, but she was only sixteen, and seemed to like them. So, those are the things we bought, and we came back with a lot heavier baggages, and indeed considerably a lot poorer. Still, I do think what we bought was worth it, and so does my fiancé. There has been a lot in the media lately about the way that Nike treat their workers. Before Christmas, I watched a panorama programme on the subject, and after watching the way the workers were, I did feel a little guilty about all the items I have. However, I do not personally feel that I should stop wearing or buying Nike products, as I think it is up to the company to change their ways, and it is not my problem. I understand that a lot of people will disagree, saying it will not change unless the public do something about it. I realise this may be true, but we cannot stop twelve year old girls saying they are eighteen, and Nike believing them, (if they really do or not is a different matter). Nike are not the only offenders at this, as Panorama showed, but I think that they are subject to the most critic, as they are really the biggest brand. Whatever happens, I feel I will continue having Nike over other ‘big’ brands, as I feel they are more reliable, and often feel more ‘secure’ knowing this. I feel it is up to you as an individual to decide on what you will buy, you may go for the cheaper option, but with the more expensive I have found less problems, as I do believe that they
are better made. There is really one thing that bothers me about Nike; that is the pronunciation of the name. I really think it is Nikee, pronouncing the ee sound. If anyone knows whether it is this or just Nike, I would be grateful If you left me a comment stating which it is. Thankyou for reading, I do hope you enjoyed my opinion. :0) Ferrari Red…
Nike are clearly one of the largest companies in the world, and despite the vast aount of money that they must get in profit each year, they still continue to exploit their workers. How do they manage to get away with this still? A lot of working conditions abroad are poor, yet one does not expect someone as large as Nike to provide the same as those smaller companies, with less profit (although that is still as bad). I don't think it's right that we continue to buy from such large brand names like these. But, how does one know who exploits their workers and who does not? It's difficult to know, but I wish I could find out. For now, I have stopped buying from Nike, and will stop buying from other companies like this, when I find out about them.
Everyone wants to wear designer labels, from Nike to Ralph Lauren Polo. Some designer labels have been around for along time like Ben Sherman and Reebok. Athletes use designer label foot wear and clothes because some of the merchandise can enhance performance, The Adidas Predators are great football boots and use Adidas midfoot stability system (torsion), Reebok make trainers like the DMX 2000 which DMX is the system used to support your foot and provide comfort. The more expensive makes like Ralph Lauren Polo/Chaps are not made for sports they are made to look cool for going out. If you are on a budget and you need to buy designer clothing you can go to Calais because there is a Nike Factory store their there is also one in Ashford in Kent. If you would like to view the Nike range and here about the company go to www.nike.com. You can also receive a free catalogue with designer labels at half price or even cheaper, it is called M&M sports you can get on their mailing list at www.mandmsports.com. If you wanted to view the Adidas range you can go to www.adidas.co.uk. There are factory stores all over Britain so you can afford designer labels. I only wear designer labels so you can probably guess if I like them or not.
