How to Get Nike Shoes Wholesale


Aside from athletic purposes, Nike sneakers have become a part of urban and hip hop culture over the last three decades. The popularity of the Nike brand has created a market for wholesale Nike products. Getting Nike shoes at wholesale prices can be a difficult task. There are three ways of buying wholesale Nike shoes -- becoming a retailer, ordering for a sports team, or finding a wholesaler who is willing to sell to a private entity.

Become a Nike Retailer

  • Visit the Nike website ( and download the retailer application packet.

  • Fill out the application in its entirety and double check to ensure that all necessary items are attached to your application.

  • Notarize the signatures on the application. Most banks have a Notary Public on staff who can notarize materials and documents. Some banks offer this service for free to customers, others charge a small fee for the service. Check with your bank beforehand to find out the fee structure.

  • Mail the application to the address provided in the application packet.

  • The application process can take several weeks. You may email Nike directly if you have concerns regarding your application at

Sports Teams


  • Visit and order free retail trade publications. These publications are used in the retail business to swap information and ideas. Many people, including legitimate wholesalers, also advertise in them.

  • Scour the magazine for names and contact information of wholesalers advertising in the publication.

  • Call the wholesalers directly to find out how they do business. Find out about sample orders and the the requirements for subsequent orders. This information is important for a number of reasons: First, as an individual you may not have the means to order in the quantities necessary; additionally, you can determine if the wholesaler is interested in doing business on smaller orders.

  • Place your first order with a wholesaler for a "sample". A "sample" is a smaller order still at wholesale prices. Most wholesalers will offer "sample lots" to gain customer trust and loyalty.
