Nike just bends over for everyone to stay in the positive light. What a stupid reason to pull a shoe.

Someone got a hold of the shoes and they're selling for 10 times their MSRP.
And why is Nike Kap's bitch??

If I was in charge I would do the same. Their goal is to sell shoes all over the world in high volumes, not create controversy however stupid it might actually be. Look at the upside and downside and make a sound business decision based on what is most likely to increase profits.

What I find strange about it is one side will call them liberals as another group calls them greedy capitalists only looking to increase profits (what stockholders - the owners - tell them to do).
