How much for a tour
How much for tour
The Nike World Headquarters at Beaverton is not open to the public and does not offer tours. But, if you want to confirm, you can call them on 503-671-6453.
Why oh why is a wonderful company like Nike kowtowing to a scumbag like Colin Kapernick???? How can you let an ill informed has-been jock dictate what you can and can't sell? NI'm no longer a customer.
I would like to take a tour as I’m in the fitness industry in Australia
I am not sure if the Nike World Headquarters' campus is open to the public for tour. You may call on 1-503-671-6453 and inquire about it.

Take a tour of Nike's swanky Oregon headquarters
Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, is as much a museum as an office.
There are all sorts of artifacts from Nike's 51 year journey to becoming one of the most dominant shoe companies on Earth .
We went on a tour of the campus last week.
Nike had a bunch of reporters come out for the reveal of the Untouchable Vapor II football cleat. Tech Insider interviewed designers at the Nike Football facility ...
Then took a bus to Nike's main campus.
Given that it was winter in Oregon, we got wet.
The buildings on the Nike campus, we learned, are named for athletes that signed Nike endorsement contracts. Athlete's have been a huge part of brand building. Take, for example, runner Steve Prefontaine — who helped make jogging (and jogging shoes) a trend back in the 1970s.
Quite naturally, the Prefontaine Building has tons of gear from the guy who once held seven different American track records at the same time.
We began by learning about Nike's mission statements — the current one is to "bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world."
We moved on to artifacts from Nike's origin story, like cofounder Phil Knight pitching cofounder Bill Bowerman on sourcing shoes from Japan.
This was the original Nike logo.
And the waffle iron that Bowerman used to make the first Nike running shoes.
And one of the original Nike shoes, called "moon shoes."
And the van that the Bowerman and Knight sold shoes out of when they launched the company.
We headed to the next building — more rain.
Along the way, it's impossible not to notice the plaques all over the place featuring Bowerman's favorite athletes, like New York Mets legend Dwight Gooden.
You can guess whose name is on the side of this building.
Inside, there is an epic display of Air Jordans, from the original 1984 model to present day.
There's a gorgeous Japanese garden, named in honor of the Iwai family that Nike partnered with on manufacturing partners in the early days.
After being sufficiently soaked with rain, we hopped back on the bus, bound for the Nike Company Store.
It's a cavernous space.
And everything is half off — making for some insane deals. Roshe's for $38? Yes please.
The key is to escape without doing too much damage to your wallet.
BONUS: The next day we went to the University of Oregon's gorgeous football facility.
And met quarterback Marcus Mariota's 2014 Heisman Trophy. So awesome.

An In-Depth Look Inside Nike's Sprawling Oregon Headquarters
Nike's campus in Beaverton, Oregon, is the mecca for anyone who loves sneakers, and here's an in-depth, detailed look at what to expect if you were to visit the World Headquarters and see the many buildings that make it up.

The mystique of Nike lies behind a berm near Beaverton, Oregon. It is there, where the Nike Worldwide Headquarters spreads across 286 acres and more than 75 buildings, that Jordan lovers can visit the lobby of the Jordan Building to peruse a collection of drool-worthy sneakers. Or maybe you want to check out that replica Pebble Beach #18 tee box and subsequent green a mere 315 yards away. Or tie back to a bit of Nike’s New England history and stop in the Boston Deli inside the Joan Benoit Samuelson Building, a deli-meets-sports bar with a treasure trove of signed athlete photos and memorabilia, much of it dedicated to Nike co-founder Phil Knight .
And that’s just a start.
In my many years covering Nike, writing for publications such as Sports Illustrated and Popular Mechanics , I’ve had the pleasure of multiple invites onto the campus to interview athletes and designers and witness the creation process live in search of a better story. Whether with a group of other journalists in a coach weaving through the security-guarded entrance of the Tiger Woods Conference Center (my first official visit to campus), pulling up to the main entrance (past the 48 flags signifying the countries Nike did business with when it was founded), or even meeting a Nike employee on campus after meandering through a wooded walking path south of it that connects the local light rail line—and hundreds of employees using the stop—to the main campus, arriving at the site always offers an entry into what feels like a rarefied world.
Once there, I’ve tossed a football, kicked a soccer ball and fielded a lacrosse ball on Ronaldo Field, explored the Nike Museum in “Pre Hall,” chatted with Tobie Hatfield while overlooking the six-acre, seven-foot-deep manmade Lake Nike—the earth removed from the lake creates the berm that surrounds much of the campus, offering a physical and metaphorical barrier to the surrounding area—and toured the site multiple times, even jumping from interview to interview across campus and wishing I had a golf cart to quicken my pace.

As you explore the campus, it comes to you in layers. First-time visitors are wowed by the sheer volume of buildings named after sports stars, the banners, the pedestrian activity, and even the 281 bronze castings of famous athletes and key figures in Nike history that line walkways.
Any initial visit requires you to duck into Prefontaine Hall to view the mainstay relics of the company. Perched on a mini-peninsula into the lake, the mini Nike museum includes the Volkswagen van used to sell Nike sneakers from decades ago, the once-lost, now-found waffle iron that co-founder Bill Bowerman used to create the outsole of the first Nike Waffle Trainer, and all the little knick-knacks that make a museum.
But venturing beyond Pre Hall, the polished story of Nike, and the shores of Lake Nike allows you to make the campus experience your own, akin to exploring a university campus beyond the traditional tour or, perhaps more appropriately, how you’d explore the archives of your favorite Nike sneaker.

The campus started in the 1980s, with 69.5 acres, but quickly grew after opening in October 1990, at 1 Bowerman Drive, with eight buildings. Knight’s plan from the beginning was to name buildings for sports figures key in Nike’s growth, starting with Joan Benoit Samuelson, Dan Fouts, Bo Jackson, Michael Jordan, John McEnroe, Alberto Salazar, Mike Schmidt, and Steve Prefontaine.
Over the years, the additions—Nolan Ryan, Ken Griffey Jr., Jerry Rice, Pete Sampras, and possibly one of the most famous buildings on campus, the Mia Hamm Building, home to the Nike Sport Research Lab and, my favorite part, a prototype center that makes gear for Nike’s biggest stars—have continued to pile up. But the growth hasn’t stopped, with the company currently in the midst of opening four new buildings.
The Serena Williams Building will become the largest structure at the headquarters, with more than 1 million square feet spread across nearly three city blocks. Expected to open in 2019, the office building will feature plenty of curved glass to contrast some of the early 1990 designs. A New York-themed parking garage and six-floor Sebastian Coe office building also mark key 2018 expansions. Named after the famed British middle-distance runner, the Sebastian Coe Building includes hand-kept training logs, a carved wood mural with Cole quotes created by Nike NFL art director Tom Andrich, a mesh metal graphic and hardwood Swoosh bench, and a stainless-steel sculpture in the outdoor upper plaza. The café in the 475,000-square-foot building was inspired by Blue Note Records and the jazz it’s released, Cole’s favorite music.

A fitness center opened in 2018, named after Coach Mike Krzyzewski (the building’s third floor features a basketball court paying homage to Coach K), gives the campus a fresh perspective. The 47,000-square-foot Coach K building features a stainless steel statue of Coach K in his “coaching position,” silver eyes above the reception desk that come to life when viewed through a phone, quotes on the walls, an ode to every one of his 1,000 Duke wins, a specialized scoreboard in the gym, a court designed to mimic the sole pattern of the Nike Cortez shoe, and even an elevator conductor lever with an inscription dedicated to Coach K’s father, William, who worked as an elevator conductor in Chicago.
Whether dedicating brand-new buildings or long-existing structures, Nike does more than simply name everything after people. It tries to fill them with personality. Every building adorned with the name of a famous athlete on the outside contains levels of that athlete’s history inside. Maybe it is the PGA Championship trophy in the Tiger Woods Convention Center, the revolving collection of glass-encased Air Jordans in the lobby of the Michael Jordan Building, or the signed cleats from every stop in Jerry Rice’s career. Each building is worthy of a stop.
To go deep into the memorabilia Nike contains, go well beyond the walls of Pre Hall and pick your favorite athlete, visit their building and take in their history. The Dan Fouts Building, for example, shows off the aesthetic touches that embrace the history of the athlete and their sport. Fouts, who played for the San Diego Chargers, can take in the suspended lightning-bolt “Surge” sculpture that lights the south lobby. The 254 dots around the perimeter of a steel floor seal summarizing Fouts’ achievements with the University of Oregon and San Diego represents the number of touchdowns in his professional career. The door handles are large 11s, his number with the Ducks, and the new café area—now featuring Pok Pok—includes the Air Coryell Café, named after Fouts’ first coach with the Chargers. Tables in the café include hand sketches of Coryell passing plays.

The grounds offers a few extras, too. Outside the expansive Tiger Woods Conference Center, overlooking Ronaldo Field’s two international-sized soccer pitches, a replica tee from Pebble Beach’s 18th hole seems logical enough. But look 317 yards away, next to the Sports Performance Center, and you’ll see the Pebble Beach green, too, protected by a bunker.
Statues pepper the property. There are the expected characters—Coach K, Michael Johnson, and Steve Prefontaine—but there’s also the more abstract like Nolan Ryan or the unexpected “Nike Girl,” a couple on a bench, or even two children playing on the shore of Lake Nike. And if statues aren’t your thing, get a cultural lesson with a visit to the on-site Nissho Iwai Gardens, honoring the Japanese trading company that helped Knight start Nike.
It being Nike Worldwide Headquarters, though, means some of the most impressive things on campus come in the form of sporting facilities. So it isn’t shocking the campus now boasts three fitness centers. The original, The Bo, named after Bo Jackson, has plenty in the way of weight rooms, cross-training, yoga, racquetball, and squash on three floors, as employees and athletes test product and work out. But the most fun comes on the upper floor, where a glass-encased basketball court welcomes the Oregon sunshine and NBA teams desiring a workout ahead of games against the Blazers. Nike employees sign up for lunchtime leagues, but have to give way when the likes of Kevin Durant stop in—as has happened—to shoot around.

The Sports Performance Center, opened in 2001 at 75,000 square feet (it was once named after Lance Armstrong), includes a glass-encased, Olympic-size swimming pool. The two-story center’s 30-foot-high glass window walls also hold weight rooms, workout studios, a spin room, and a rock-climbing wall.
The Coach K facility trumps them both, though, especially with that specially designed basketball court on the third floor.
Exploring outside—whether you brought your umbrella or not—comes in many forms. A 1.3-mile trail loop inside campus includes four footbridges, and a 1.9-mile loop reaches outside campus. The best area for stretching those legs, though, come near that MAX stop, where the Michael Johnson track nestles into the landscape. A five-lane, 400-meter track made from 50,000 recycled athletic shoes lets the red of the surface play against the greens and browns of the environment. With so many aspects to the university-like campus—often closed off at key points with security—it allows both employees and riff-raff like me to enjoy the odes to sports sprinkled about. The Nike Worldwide Headquarters serves as a workplace environment with the hustle of folks going about their jobs, but the campus is one with grand gestures, intriguing history, and a setting that gives it a unique character. For many lovers of sport and the gear tied to it, Nike is significant. A visit to the campus connects gear creation with experience. Or, at the very least, we can take in a bite of history at the Boston Deli.

Signage & environmental graphics, signage and wayfinding program for the sportswear company’s corporate campus in beaverton, oregon..
Nike World Headquarters is the expansive home base of the largest sports footwear and apparel company in the world. Located on a sprawling, 400-acre campus in Beaverton, Oregon, just west of Portland, the site houses more than 11,000 employees and encompasses over 75 architecturally diverse buildings and structures, including the Nike Sport Research Lab and the Nike Museum, three fitness centers and facilities for athlete training, as well as sports fields, track and running paths, the manmade Lake Nike, and several dedicated stops on the local MAX light rail system.
Pentagram developed a comprehensive signage and wayfinding system for the corporate headquarters in partnership with Nike Construction and Design. The project framework included the structural design of the signage and graphics for the program, including maps of the campus and its transportation network and custom icons. The design draws on the 26-degree angle of the brand’s iconic swoosh and the chevron motif of its famous Windrunner apparel to create a system that is uniquely Nike.
The Nike headquarters opened in 1990 (at One Bowerman Drive, after founder Jeff Bowerman) and has undergone a series of expansions over the years, most recently in 2017-2018 . Many of the buildings are named for sports figures who have been pivotal to the company’s growth and history, including Michael Jordan, Bo Jackson, Joan Benoit Samuelson, Alberto Salazar, John McEnroe, Steve Prefontaine, Mia Hamm, Pete Sampras and Serena Williams. These are situated along tree-lined streets in several neighborhood-like smaller campuses that are linked by green spaces, pathways and sports fields.
The challenge for the designers was to develop a signage program that would identify and unify the headquarters and the buildings. Nike needed a cohesive system that would visually connect the huge campus, integrate it with its suburban setting, hold its own with the strong architecture and at the same time help create a sense of place.
The buildings are stylistically disparate—from architecturally innovative to more corporate and traditional—and the inconsistent patchwork of the previous signage helped make the headquarters feel even more confusing and disconnected, at odds with the typically high-quality and holistic Nike brand experience. The company also required an updated system for transportation and pedestrian wayfinding. Many of the Nike employees use public transit or cycle to get to work and once there travel by shuttle from building to building, and the previous program of signage had no uniform maps of the various campuses and the transportation network.
Nike prizes its heritage as a sportswear pioneer and this history and culture is an important part of its brand. The designers wanted to pay homage to this legacy in the system and developed a mesh perforation for the signage structures based on the 26-degree angle.
The angle is both subtle and ubiquitous in the brand’s visual language: it appears in the familiar chevron motif on Nike apparel, on shoebox graphics, and in the pattern of the soles of Nike sneakers. Once noticed, it can be seen everywhere, including the tilt of the Nike swoosh itself.
The signage brings the angle to life in the pattern of perforated mesh that covers two sides of the box-like structures. As people move past and around the signs and look into the mesh surface, a layered moiré pattern is revealed, creating a dynamic optical effect that resonates with the movement and energy in the Nike brand.
The team created prototypes for testing to see how the pattern “moved” as users made their way around the sign. The bands of angled stripes appear to run up and down the signs, giving them a sense of speed and momentum. The honeycomb texture of the pattern is balanced by the minimalism of the forms.
Wayfinding signs are vertical totems that are visible from a distance. The rectangular structures have visual mass and physicality, but the mesh gives them a lightness and transparency that helps integrate them with the natural surroundings. (Seen in profile from their uncovered “thin” side, they almost seem to disappear.) The signs are made of durable materials including blackened steel that can withstand the inclement weather of the Pacific Northwest.
A range of signage types were developed for various locations (at intersections, mid-block, in plazas, etc.), and the designers conducted testing to make sure the system worked for pedestrians, runners and cyclists, as well as vehicles. The series includes interpretive signage for landmarks like Lake Nike. Signage typography is set in Futura, the Nike brand font, and Flama, another geometric sans serif with high legibility.
The angle carries through to the graphics of redesigned maps for the headquarters and transportation system. The designers built a new graphic structure based on the angle and simplified the representation of shuttle routes to give the maps a streamlined aesthetic. A system of custom icons are also constructed around the angle.

Nike Headquarters Campus, Portland, Oregon
1 Sw Bowerman Dr, Beaverton , Oregon 97005 USA
“just do it”
Before there was the Swoosh, before there was Nike, there were two visionary men who pioneered a revolution in athletic footwear that redefined the industry. Bill Bowerman was a nationally respected track and field coach at the University of Oregon, who was constantly seeking ways to give his athletes a competitive advantage. He experimented with different track surfaces, re-hydration drinks and – most importantly – innovations in running shoes. But the established footwear manufacturers of the 1950s ignored the ideas he tried to offer them, so Bowerman began cobbling shoes for his runners.Phil Knight was a talented middle-distance runner from Portland, who enrolled at Oregon in the fall of 1955 and competed for Bowerman’s track program. Upon graduating from Oregon, Knight earned his MBA in finance from Stanford University, where he wrote a paper that proposed quality running shoes could be manufactured in Japan that would compete with more established German brands. But his letters to manufacturers in Japan and Asia went unanswered, so Knight took a chance.He made a cold-call on the Onitsuka Co. in Kobe, Japan, and persuaded the manufacturer of Tiger shoes to make Knight a distributor of Tiger running shoes in the United States. When the first set of sample shoes arrived, Knight sent several pairs to Bowerman, hoping to make a sale. Instead, Bowerman stunned Knight by offering to become his partner, and to provide his footwear design ideas to Tiger. Nike rang in the new millennium with a new footwear cushioning system called Nike Shox, which debuted during Sydney in 2000. The development of Nike Shox culminated more than 15 years of perseverance and dedication, as Nike designers stuck with their idea until technology could catch up. The result was a cushioning and stability system worthy of joining Nike Air as the industry’s gold standard.Just as Nike’s products have evolved, so has Nike’s approach to marketing. The 2002 “Secret Tournament” campaign was Nike’s first truly integrated, global marketing effort. Departing from the traditional “big athlete, big ad, big product” formula, Nike created a multi-faceted consumer experience in support of the World Cup.“Secret Tournament” incorporated advertising, the Internet, public relations, retail and consumer events to create excitement for Nike’s soccer products and athletes in a way no single ad could ever achieve. This new integrated approach has become the cornerstone for Nike marketing and communications.Today, Nike continues to seek new and innovative ways to develop superior athletic products, and creative methods to communicate directly with our consumers. The company has continued to expand in new ways, including strong growth in China and a deal to become the official sponsor of the National Football League (NFL) beginning in 2012.At an investor meeting at its world headquarters in June 2011, NIKE, Inc. announced an increase to its fiscal 2015 revenue target to a new range of $28-30 billion, up from its previous target of $27 billion announced in May 2010. The company also increased its fiscal 2015 revenue target for the NIKE Brand to $24-25 billion, up from its previous target of $23 billion.President and CEO Mark Parker said: “At NIKE, Inc. we run a complete offense, and it’s based on a core commitment to innovation. That’s how we stay opportunistic, serve the athlete, reward our shareholders, and continue to lead our industry.”

Don't miss this Free Tour!!!
We arrived in Moscow without any guide book, so that is how we found the Free tour, on the Internet. And this was our first approach to the great history and sites in Moscow! We really enjoy this walking tour with Airat. He was really amazing, explaining and aswering every question in our group. A really perfect English speaker, and gave us some good tips about where to eat, how to get there, really kind. The free tour also convinced us to take a pay tour, Kremlin tour, that was also great and where he gave us information beyond the formal guides speech that sometimes can get you bored. You can feel that Airat is a guy that loves his job, loves the city and the history of Moscow. He was really proffesional. You should not miss this!!! And the plus of this: Is free!!! ;)
The tour was really great and the guides were well prepared. Really fun!! I recommend it to everybody :)
I did 3 tours with Airat and it was fascinating to see the visible and hidden beauties of vibrant Moscow. The free tour is a great orientation but I also highly recommend other tours with them. I did the Metro tour and Alternative Moscow tours which were dazzling and insightful...I look forward to visiting again and doing a few more!!
This was an excellent tour and really covered a lot of the history and culture of Moscow in the two hours. Our guide was extremely informative and answered all my questions. A must when visiting Moscow.
My friend and I went to visit Moscow in 20 May 2012. After we arrived in the afternoon, we took the Communist Tour with Airat, our tour guide. The tour fee was about 24 EUR/pax. It was a wonderful experience, especially since Airat had a great knowledge of Russian Communist History. He explained about it passionately But the most memorable experience, I should definitely say the tour that happened the next day, which was the Moscow Free Tour. The tour itself was great, but it wasn't the major thing that I would like to highlight. Towards the end of the tour, my wallet got pickpocketed from my bag. So, someone opened my bag and stole my wallet. I think it happened around the State Library area. All our money was gone (since my friend gave his to me to be taken care of, so his money is also gone :( ). Luckyly, I still had my passport and everything else. But money, driving license, ATM card, and credit cards are all gone. We only had 1000RUR left (Thank God, my friend still had his ATM card) When I told Airat (we had the same tour guide again as the day before) when the tour finished, he called the police right away. After they came, he accompanied us to the police station to help us report the incidence. It was a great help for us since not many Russians spoke English, and neither did the policemen. He was the one who explained to the police and wrote the report in Russian. He waited with us there for almost 2 hours in the police station. And after all the police administration had finished, he informed us that the police station was located near Novodevichy convent and he offer us to go there to accompany us if we would like to visit it. Since we would like to put the bad experience behind us, we accepted his offer. Luckily, we did, since the convent was beautiful and so was the cemetery. Airat also gave us the information related with it, just like if we had taken a tour. But he did this for free. He didn't ask anything from us. We were very amazed with this. Yes, we encountered an unfortunate event, but we also found someone who did above and beyond to help us. Thank you so much for everything that you have done, Airat. This is one of my most memorable trip experience ever.
2 of my friends and I joined the free tour in May. The tour covers all the main attractions and the guide had perfect english and was very knowlegeable. They also run free tours in St Pete's as well.
