If needed, I use the same pronunciation as for the Goddess: [ni:ke]
Over here we say [naik] and [naiki:]. Never heard [nikè] in connection with the sportswear.

ah, OK. What about those of us who still haven't figured it out?
I infer from Anders' last that this has to do with Nike(?) My first encounter with this word was the US missle defence system of the 1950s, though it too was named for the Goddess.

I am happy for you and very pleases to know me that they esteem my language in such a way.
Now it tries to say the rat gnawed the clothes of the king of Rome.
