It should be of no surprise Nike got a black history shoe. Nike was founded in 1964 as Blue Ribbon Sports by Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight. Mr. Bill was born black and his twin brother Thomas was born white on February 19, 1911 in Portland, Oregon. Even more Random Thomas died in an elevator accident when he was just 1yers old. Guess it was better for baby Bill to die white according to his death certificate in 1999 he officially lived his life as a white man. Wow how things can change in a life time. Maybe it was the now-banned sneaker glue compounds (particularly n-hexane) that were causing him neurological damage that made him forget he once was black. Doctors thought that Bill was coming down with multiple sclerosis but it was the glue. How random is that?
