Nike pulled the Air Max 1 USA shoe, which included a Revolutionary-era U.S. flag with 13 white stars in a circle on the heel. Kaepernick reached out to Nike after learning they planned to release the sneaker to explain that the flag recalls an era when black people were enslaved and that it has been appropriated by white nationalist groups, a person familiar with the conversation told The Associated Press.
Nike decided to recall the shoe after it had been already sent to retailers to go on sale this week for the July Fourth holiday, according to the Wall Street Journal.
But Nike isn’t the only company that sales sneakers in our country!
As the Daily Caller reported:
Another company has come out with Betsy Ross flag-era sneakers, in a direct counter to Nike who recalled their flag-themed kicks when former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick said the design was reminiscent of the slave era. While other companies are likely concerned with making a profit off of a massive political statement, there’s a small time company that is 100 percent American owned and operated with a very different mission at hand. PrintedKicks is a proudly Pro-Trump, Pro-Police, and Pro-Military company, so it should come as no shock that they felt pretty opinionated about the Betsy Ross sneakers being removed so close to the 4th of July.
I spoke with PrintedKicks’ CEO and founder at length about the issue since PrintedKicks already sells really cool Trump sneakers (see here) and I wanted to see if they had any comments or plans revolving around the Betsy Ross controversy. He revealed that sneakers were in the works, but unlike other companies mass producing shoes in China for huge profits off of hard-working conservatives, I have been promised that 100 percent (not a single penny less) of the profit that PrintedKicks makes off the sale of these stylish Betsy Ross sneakers, will go to support a charity that helps veterans suffering from PTSD. In summarizing his remarks, the CEO stated that while he realizes there is demand for Betsy Ross Flag-themed Sneakers and that he is proud his company prints and embroiders its products in the USA, he wanted his company to give back to the country that has given us all so much.
Personally, I think these sneakers look like are better quality ( I owe the Trump sneakers) than the Nike knockoffs that everybody else is pushing out, which is unsurprising given the better quality of American craftsmanship in general. I have already ordered three pairs for myself and friends, and personally I can’t think of a better way to stick it to the anti-american complainers in our lives than to buy sneakers with the original Betsy Ross flag design (that everybody is saying is offensive), from an All-American company (while most companies operate in China), on sale for 4th of July, and with all proceeds supporting medical care for the veterans who proudly served our country.
Finally a decent company that share our American values!
