Just a marketing stunt to position Nike as a politically safe protest brand in a global marketplace.

Like the subject line says, I'm a dyed in the wool Liberal...but this is taking things a bit too far. The flag on the heal of this shoe indicates the history of the United States as a sovereign nation. Here I have to agree with my right-wing brothers, "Snowflakes. Get a grip!"

    I left Nike a couple of years ago anyway. I didn't know the Kraper still had any companies that still cared if he was breathing or not. Sorry, you can have any view you want about anything but if you're not going to stand for the pledge of allegiance I say "LEAVE"!!!

    What's next? Krappereater finds the US flag racist because it has 13 stripes representing the 13 states when this country was founded?

    You Ma'am or Sir need to stop identifying as a liberal and start identifying as an American. Are you blind to what the demonic Democrats are doing to this country promoting open borders, unlimited immigration, and revising history?

    As Thomas Jefferson, whose birthday was removed as a holiday in the town of his birth yesterday by revisionist liberals, said many years ago:

    "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants".

    We're there.

        The Betsy Ross Flag predates the nazi american party by nearly two hundred years.

          WAIT A MINUTE!!! Kaepernick kneeled during the National Anthem because he said it was because of "Police Brutality" NOW he's showing that was not the case at all it's was about the way slaves/BLACKS were treated! UM blacks came to America as slaves and were sold by their own colors!!!
          Where are all the feminists? Why are they not screaming? Betsy Ross was the first woman to be self employed. She made the design to create and sew the first American Flag, sewn by hand. Why aren't the feminists backing her???
          THIS IS HOW LIBERALS WORK. SICKENING

If the flag has sadly been adopted by the Klu Klux Klan and other white suprematist groups, which it has and you can google stories to see many pics, then the company had no choice. If they didn’t pull them, they would be giving a product for them to wear to promote hate.
The Arizona governor’s reaction was surprising and yet not. They were the state that the super bowl pulled out of when they refused to adopt the Martin Luther King holiday. I thought we had moved on from that, but no. Nike already has offers from other states who would welcome their jobs.
Why don’t ALL the haters LEAVE our country? Or go retire in Arizona.

    At some point you can't give into the grievance crowd.

    As an example the cross. Jesus was crucified and died for our sins on it and it is a symbol of hope, love and restoral for many. But lots and lots of bad things and bad people have used the cross for hateful acts.

    Sadly, the last poster implies that loving our flag is somehow proof that you are part of the KKK or white supremacist party. Certainly Nike was not illustrating any kind of hate or bigotry with the shoe-flag but the left and hasbeen quarterback Krapper see the flag and hate all of the patriotism that it represents. Hence the term, "MAGA". "Love it or Leave it"!!!

    If you were the “big fan” and “supporter” of Kap that you profess, then you would not be abandoning him now for the SAME argument he’s been making all along. It’s about squashing HATE.
