But how did Nike become the behemoth it is today? Much of it has to do with Nike’s understanding of the sports footwear market and its competitors.

The report identified four different segments in the industry: performance, heritage/lifestyle, fashion/athleisure, and children.

However, the company faces several challenges, including intensifying competition from Adidas and other brands, and declining sales in North America. In order to maintain its position as the top player in the industry, Nike must focus on innovation, both in terms of product design and marketing. The company also needs to address the issue of declining sales in North America.
