The first NIKE shoe was sold in Malta in 1987, Hudson’s then sub-company Time International (Sport) Ltd., with the first shipment selling out in a matter of a week. The rest is history and Hudson now proudly represents NIKE in over 34 African countries. The brand reaches these destinations through a purposely built distribution centre in Hal Far Malta which spans a total area of 5,000 sqm. The project bolsters the company’s services towards the brands it represents in Africa – bringing Fashion and Sport closer to the continent. Besides this, Hudson proudly operates 12 NIKE flagship stores in Malta and Africa.
