How to buy and sell Nike shares

Learning how to buy and sell shares in Nike can be confusing. Here, we’ve put together a guide that tells you how to go about it on the Shares app

A bit about Nike

Proud owners of one of the world’s most recognisable logos, Nike design, develop, market, and of course sell a large range of sports products. With a sub-brand in almost every sport you can think of, Nike has an extensive sponsorship portfolio that also means you can barely watch a major sporting event without seeing their famous swooshing tick. In recent times, Nike has also dominated the lifestyle apparel market and shown how sport stars can become brands in their own right, with the Jordan brand exemplifying this.
