DescriptionNike is one brand, fueled by categories. And while each category has a special role to play in making sport a daily habit and bringing innovation and inspiration to every athlete*, we think the work we do in Specialty is the coolest. We are innovators, entrepreneurs, strategists, and makers and together we are disrupting the status quo.Specialty Category is a portfolio of sports comprising Golf, Tennis, NikeSB, and Hurley. We do things differently here and our consumers feel it. We were excited to partner with an Athlete to build her a full-body compression suit (“catsuit”) to aid with circulation postpartum…and question what a woman should be allowed to wear on court. We’re the team that delivered a mockumentary aimed at making you laugh…while quietly loosening the strait-laced perceptions of the course. And we’re ever the champions of our athletes*.We are similarly excited to push internal boundaries and bring the energy and newness Nike is known for within sport to our company’s community. We are scrappy. In Specialty, we trade the “this is the way we do it” mentality for an adventurous spirit and the scientific method.
