Original Book Summary Overview

In this enthralling memoir, Shoe Dog, Nike co-founder and chairman Phil Knight shares the riveting journey of the company from its early days in his parents' servant quarters to its current status as one of the world’s most renowned brands. He narrates how, young and fresh from graduate school, he sold his car and set off to see the world. Along the way, he would stop by Japan and make his college idea of pervading the American market with Japanese running shoes work. This book captures every significant moment of Knight’s relentless journey; from selling shoes from his Valiant to heading a company that grossed $16 billion in 2006. 

Please Note: This is a summary, analysis and review of the book and not the original book. This analysis is meant as a supplement to, and not a replacement for, Shoe Dog.
