After Nike recalled their special Betsy Ross Flag Air Max 1 USA sneakers, DEMAND EXPLODED ... with several leaked pairs selling for more than $2,000!!!

The shoes were originally supposed to be released on June 29 with a $120 price tag - - but after Colin Kaepernick reached out to Nike to express concerns with the design, the Swoosh ordered retailers to pull the kicks and send them back to headquarters.

Colin went to Nike with concerns about the Betsy Ross 13-star design on the shoes ... a design that's recently been co-opted by several white nationalist groups.

Nike ultimately felt Colin's point was valid and issued a recall.

Yes. Sneaks go up in value, depending on scarcity.

the Nike dunk Wu-tangs are the ones I crave.

FREE MARKET ECONOMY. SUPPLY AND DEMAND!

Also, I wouldn't call the adoption of this flag by certain white supremacist groups "recent" at all. Aryan Nations and the American Nazi Party have both used it (alongside various swastika designs) for decades.

Not sure why Colin Kaepernick is calling the shots at Nike. The 13 star flag is the one Betsy Ross designed and is a piece of history. I can understand if it was the Confederate flag, but not the original flag of our country.

Yes, I know what you did. I'm pointing out that doing that is annoying.

As to the flag, it's not a question that it's been co-opted by a number of white supremacist groups. If you have a problem with that, and with not seeing it on merchandise, you should probably take it up with the Nazis, not the guy who pointed it out.

White supremacist groups have adopted it and been using it since at least the 1980s. Again, if you don't like it, take it up with the f*cking Nazis.

So if white supremacist groups decide to name Wonder bread as their official bread we should all ban Wonder bread?

Since when do we let white supremacy groups decide what we can and can’t do?

Nike should change its slogan from “Just do it” to “Can we do it?”

Just saying, you seem to be happy to blame this on Kaepernick, when it's the f*cking Nazis who've actually created a problem with the flag design. Again, if you don't like that they've co-opted it, take it up with the Aryan Nation, the ANP, the III%ers, the Klan, and the other folks who've been using it for many years to represent their hate groups.

We should ban wonder bread anyway just because it's pooty white bread that is barely edible for ducks

And geese. Zero nutritional value to either.

Feed them these: Corn (canned, frozen or fresh)
Duck pellets (sold online and at pet stores)
Lettuce, other greens (torn into small pieces)
Frozen peas (defrosted)
Oats (rolled or instant)
Seeds (including birdseed or other varieties.)

Well Rick Ross makes shoes for Patrick Ewing.
