Return of the Nike Sportswear Logo On Football Kits This Year - Full Nike Logo History

Sunday, 13 January 2019
Nike will bring back the iconic "Nike Sportswear" logo of the 1990s this year with the third kits for the likes of Barcelona, Chelsea and PSG. We take a look at the full logo history of Nike.

The company was originally established in 1964 by Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight as “Blue Ribbon Sports” in 1964. Its current name Nike was adapted in 1978.

Nike Logo History

The Nike logo was designed by Carolyn Davidson in 1971. She was paid only $35 for the rights to use it. The Nike “Swoosh” logo symbolizes the wing in the far-famed statue of the Greek Goddess of victory, Nike, who largely influenced countless brave warriors. The Nike swoosh logo made its first appearance on the first-ever Nike football boot, called 'The Nike'.

The name Nike, written in Futura Bold, was later added to the swoosh symbol. The words Nike written within the swoosh symbol were used until 1995. After 1995, the name in the written font has been removed from the logo design.

The Nike 2019-2020 third jerseys for their biggest clubs will be the first Nike soccer jerseys to feature the iconic classic Nike logo with the name, also known as Nike Sportswear logo.
