Nike has gone soft.

They had two unusual misses recently. 1. They made a shoe to celebrate Puerto Rico using a design/pattern that belonged to an indigenous tribe that had nothing to do with Puerto Rico. 2. They made a shoe to celebrate the 4th featuring the old American flag. Kaepernick told them that that version of the flag had associations with slavery so they pulled it.

@OP completely agree. It’s patriotic and there is nothing wrong with it.

I’m Puerto Rican. The PR shoe debacle was really cringe-inducing. Honestly they should’ve gone simple and used the vintage sky-blue version of the PR flag, or some vejigante imagery.

Sure this isn’t just another one of their PR games. Nike showing they are sensitive to the feelings of others, unless they’re child laborers.

It’s ironic that Nike listen to a guy who wears a Fidel Castro t-shirt and then complains about oppression. You clearly don’t have to have a brain to be a role model these days.
