Welcome to the Commodity Chain for Nike Shoes

Created and edited by Nick Evans and Beau Beechler.

We chose to investigate the commodity chain for Nike brand shoes. At first, this commodity intrigued us because it is our favorite brand of clothing. However, Nike, one of the largest clothing brands in the world, has also had some controversy over the recent years. There was negative media attention drawn to the use of child labor in creating their products, mainly shoes. This gave us a better reason to explore the whole Nike shoe commodity chain, and figure out just what Nike is doing after all. We will explore the regions in the world where Nike shoes are created, beginning with the raw materials and ending with the final product being disposed of.
