What font is used for the Nike logo?
The “NIKE” lettering in the Nike logo design is custom created, however, it is extensively agreed that Futura typefaces are most comparable. It has actually been commented that with a very percentage of lettering, this font can be made to look exactly like the Nike logo.
The closest typeface seems Futura Bold Condensed Oblique, with some manual tweaks, including (however not just) tightened spacing and some extra slanting used in a graphics program.
The included slanting will trigger the arm of the K to obtain relatively thinner and the leg to obtain thicker, as seen in the real logo.
