Nike Air Stab Shoes Linked to Crime

Nike has been in the media for good and bad this week. First off, the Nike Air Stab had to be recalled because it has been attributed to stabbings, or at least thought to coincide with a rise in teen stabbings in the UK. They were launched as a limited edition two years ago featuring an old school design from a 1988 Nike shoe.

Oddly enough, it could have been worse! The slogan for the retro-designed shoes is “Runnin' 'n' Gunnin!”

Will Nike have to recall the all-weather Pocketknife shoe soon too?

The more positive news? Nike is collaborating with the US military; they have designed an ultra light weight boot using the Nike Free sole, created for the Special Forces.  Stats for Nike Stabbings? Trending: Older & Mild
