Perceptions of Nike <ul><li>Gen Y perceive the Nike brand as trustworthy, high-quality and high-priced. </li></ul><ul><li>When they think of Nike and associate the brand with celebrities they think of Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz. </li></ul><ul><li>The underlying message is Nike has a good reputation when associated with women. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore, women who wear Nike would like to be perceived with high class and are in desirable athletic shape. </li></ul><ul><li>College women between the ages of 18 and 22 are highly aware of the Nike brand since they have been exposed to the Nike brand since a young age. </li></ul><ul><li>College women have been wearing Nike athletic wear since elementary school or younger. Their parents clothed them in Nike jackets, pants, as well as shoes. The highly identifiable Nike symbol of the Swoosh and the” Just Do It” tagline is inspirational to college women. While they are aspiring for a higher degree education, they want to be wearing Nike athletic wear that encourages them to set goals and accomplish great things. </li></ul>

barriers <ul><li>The most prominent barrier regarding Nike athletic wear is its cost. Especially among the college-aged women who participated in the focus groups, many agreed that they either wait until a parent could go shopping with them so that they would pay for their Nike wear or when they do pay for Nike products with their own money, they tend to purchase only one or two products at a time. </li></ul><ul><li>When it comes to similar category advertising, most athletic wear brands’ advertisements are extremely similar. </li></ul><ul><li>The majority of commercials show either a professional athlete or someone who is athletic-looking or in good physical shape using or wearing the brand’s product in some way. </li></ul><ul><li>Although all of these advertisements are very similar in look and idea, Nike still stands out among the rest. The Nike slogan “Just Do It” and trademark Swoosh are unforgettable and undeniable in ads, and always sets the brand apart from others. </li></ul>
Nike is cool <ul><li>People who wear Nike are affluent, healthy, and trendy. </li></ul><ul><li>Nike products are made for everybody. </li></ul><ul><li>Although we narrowed our demographic down to college-aged women, we know through research that their dominance transcends age and gender. </li></ul><ul><li>The interesting this is that Nike trends are almost unspoken. We asked each of our focus groups why they choose to wear Nike and all participants had a difficult time of explaining why except for that “it’s just the way it is.” </li></ul><ul><li>From this observation, it can be assumed that anything Nike produces has a huge chance to become a trend if for no other explainable reason than simply because it is Nike. </li></ul>
