Love your Nike sneakers? Why not own a stake in the company?

Butter x Stake

Fans of Michael Jordan’s Netfilix series, The Last Dance, listen up! Here is your opportunity to not only score a pair of iconic Air Jordans, but also a share in Nike thanks to a Stake and Butter partnership. 

Stake is a homegrown digital US stock brokerage service and Butter is a Sydney-based hybrid sneaker bar, champagne bar and dabbles in delicious fried chicken. 


“Your prized sneaker collection and the US stock market might seem like different worlds, but they’re more similar than you think,” says Stake CEO and co-founder, Matt Leibowitz.

New data reveals Aussies are jumping on Nike shares with an upswing of 35% of Nike trades, valued at AU$1million since the controversial Jordan documentary aired. Stake trading data also reported the number of Aussie Nike traders has increased by 45% in the first half of 2020, compared to the second half of 2019. There are also more Gen Z and Y Nike investors than all older generations combined.
