Edge On The Clock: Nike’s Controversial New Sneakers Sell On-Line For $2,500
From offensive to expensive: Someone shelled out $2,500 to buy a pair of Nike’s new sneakers in an online auction.
The shoes feature the 13-star ‘Betsy Ross’ flag.
Nike pulled them from stores before they ever went on sale, but some pairs have popped up on internet sneaker sites.
Nike decided to not release the shoes after several people, including Colin Kapernick, complained the flag was connected to the era of slavery.
Plus, celebrities are getting a kick out of the #bottlecapchallenge and some people are calling out the US Women’s National Soccer Team’s Alex Morgan for how she celebrated her game-winning goal in the World Cup semi-finals.
