How to Become Nike Models

Nike Models

The Nike brand is one of the most internationally recognized brands in the world, and becoming a Nike model is by no means easy to do. A corporation of this magnitude looks for the best talent they can find when offering modeling jobs to people to promote their athletic gear, shoes, and casual apparel in various avenues of the fitness modeling world. Ever since their initial start in 1964, as “Blue Ribbon Sports”, which was later changed to Nike Inc. in 1978 by Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight, Nike has been all about being one of the best companies the world has ever seen. Therefore, it’s important that Nike models are able to convey that message through various print ads, commercials, and even on their websites.

Competition for Nike Models

As much as everyone wants to audition to become a model for the Nike brand, the truth is that there is some very stiff competition with this particular brand. This usually comes in the form of professional athletes such as Lebron James, Serena Williams, Tiger Woods, Hope Solo, Calvin Johnson, and so many more but that doesn’t mean you don’t have a chance. These athletes are usually reserved for specific commercials that promote a product that they are connected with, much like how Michael Jordan was the face of Air Jordan for much of his career.

So you still have a chance to star in other campaigns as Nike models can be used to promote the brands casual shoes, clothes, and so many other types of gear produced by Nike. It’s also important to keep in mind that Nike is also behind brands like Converse which allow for additional types of modeling opportunities in the same industry. So not only can modeling for Nike help you break into the world of fashion modeling, but you can multiply your efforts by modeling for Converse as well, gaining more exposure and building your modeling portfolio even further.

How to Find Jobs with Nike

I’m sure at this point you’ve performed countless job searches for how you can count yourself among the great Nike models, but found few listings available. The truth is that Nike rarely, if ever, posts their modeling opportunities on their home website. Instead they choose to send this information to modeling agencies and certain talent services, as these institutes are better suited for choosing modeling talent.

Therefore, if you want to become a model for Nike and want to sport the news shoes, clothing, fitness products, and more you have to connect yourself with a talent agency or modeling service.
