This week, sportswear giant Nike agreed to pull their “Betsy Ross Flag” sneakers after former NFL player nd anthem-protester Colin Kaepernick, advised them that the American flag is a symbol of racism, hate, and slavery. However, the company has had no issue offering shoes with many other national flags and colors, including human rights abusers such as China and Turkey.
Naturally, Nike was quick to create gay pride flag-themed shoes. There are quite a few styles set up in the rainbow colors of gay pride. So, as far as Nike is concerned, gay pride is great, but American pride is “racist.”
Nike - Shoes - Flags - Sorts - Nations
But Nike has also created shoes with the flags of all sorts of nations on them. Over the last few decades, Nike has offered many shoes decorated with the colors and flags of a growing list of countries without regard to their records on racism, violence, gay rights, and human rights abuses.
There was the Nike SB Dunk High Tricolor that featured red, white, and blue stripes. But the shoes were meant to celebrate the French Tricolor flag as opposed to America’s Old Glory.
France - Lone - Example - Versions - Flag
France is not a lone example. There have been several versions of the green and red Mexican flag. There have also been shoes with Italy’s flag, Germany’s, Jamaica’s, a pair with the Turkish colors, even several different designs with the Chicago flag, the California flag, and the Olympic flag.
Speaking of the Olympics, there are a few Nike styles called the “Internationals,” including the Nike Air Max 90 and Air Max 95, featuring a ribbon of flags from all over the world.
