If you're a shoe junkie, this is good/bad news for you (depends on how you view your addiction to shoes).
Amazon offers Adidas and Under Armour, but Nike has not been offered on Amazon, but that is about to change.
In the past, Nike has only sold their shoes and sportswear on their website and to department stores and specialty retailers. They have declined to sell their products Amazon all this time, but they are not able to resist the huge potential for sales that the online behemoth offers. A Goldman Sachs report that was released on Wednesday stated that Nike is “close to commencing a direct relationship selling product on Amazon.com.”
The agreement will have Nike provide product directly to Amazon and in return Amazon will police and prohibit counterfeit and third-party sales of Nike products. Amazon has been gearing up for this significant partnership by cracking down on counterfeit product and the proliferation of unauthorized third-party sales on the site already. Amazon already began notifying third-party sellers that they have until July 13 to stop selling certain Nike products.
