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. These people will make sure that you hear about these casting opportunities, as well as help you gather more modeling experience with other well paying jobs in this niche.

  39. I’ve wanted to be a model since I was in Kindergarten, and I was recently looking up model requirements I’m in the 5’1″ – 5’2″ range, I went from happy to upset, and I started thinking no one is really even 5’8″ and up anymore they honestly do need to change requirements for height in fashion and anything else where there’s such a tall height requirement in this generation they’re are tons of short astonishingly beautiful girls that don’t really have a chance because of these height requirements. I’ve been told I should model by a ton of people and I really believe I could and with I know I can help myself and every other short girl. If tall girls can have a chance why shouldn’t we?

  52. I’m 6’0″ 190lbs , I used to be very overweight and was pre diabetic . When I was 15 I was 234lbs and was growing . I decided to turn my life around and got into health and fitness . I dropped down to 170 in about 3 months and since then I’ve been putting on muscle and going very strong .ive put on about 25lbs of muscle since I lost all that weight and am still going. I believe modeling for athletic apparel, I can represent hope for many people . To show many that working hard leads to great gifts . Our world is becoming less orientated around exercising, and it’s very sad , this just means we need more people to help motivate children to exercise ! Not only do I wear Nike clothing with pride but I feel moved by it . I believe behind every Nike emblem lyes a long linneage of hard workers . It wouldn’t only be awesome to model my aggressive athletic body but it would also help bring a new face to this very colorful and trendy way Nike is going in . I love the way Nikes going with their new styles and I have only been told I would be perfect to model for Nike and can see this dream becoming a reality .
