Nike has unveiled their new signature shoe for Colin Kaepernick, and you’ll be shocked to find that they aren’t house slippers.
In the past the shoe brand has worked with athletes who have achieved a certain level of success, but now they appear to have made a never-was the “face of the franchise” (which has been a huge boom for business in spite of calls for boycott).
“We believe that Colin Kaepernick is one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation, who has leveraged the power of sport to help move the world forward,” the company said in a statement. “The jersey marks Nike’s continued product collaboration with Colin.”
Instead of being able to jump like Mike, or be a multi-sport phenom like Bo Jackson, kids can aspire to protest and walk around in street clothes… Good job Nike.
