Shoe Dog[2] is a memoir by Nike co-founder Phil Knight.[3] The memoir chronicles the history of Nike from its early struggles to its evolution into one of the world’s most recognized and profitable companies.

Bill Gates named Shoe Dog one of his five favorite books of 2016 and called it “an amazing tale, a refreshingly honest reminder of what the path to business success really looks like. It’s a messy, perilous, and chaotic journey, riddled with mistakes, endless struggles, and sacrifice. Phil Knight opens up in ways few CEOs are willing to do.”[4]

Warren Buffett called it "The best book I read last year. Phil is . . . a gifted storyteller".

In July 2018, Netflix announced a biopic adaptation.[5]
