Nike has moved away from focusing predominantly on such products and has successfully established itself as a fashion brand. This focus on fashion, coupled with the use of specialist brands Converse and Hurley has seen the company broaden its appeal beyond sports enthusiasts.
Nike has a particular focus on basketball, golf, NFL, running, soccer, and tennis. To target these sports and leverage the superstar image of its sponsored athletes, Nike has launched a number of sub-brands, the most famous of which is Jordan, which was built around Michael Jordan and which targets the basketball and urban fashion markets.
Nike is headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon and its North American origins are to be seen in its focus on sports such as basketball and the NFL. The company still derives much of its revenue from North America, but by focusing on a wide range of sports with global appeal and becoming a fashion brand, it has been able to build a global empire.
