TSR Fashion: Give me two pairs, I need two pairs of Colin Kaepernick’s new Air Force 1s except that Christmas wish will likely not happen as Kaep’s new collab with Nike reportedly sold out in minutes.
According to Nike, The Air Force 1 x Colin Kapernick is no longer available after today’s release in North America at Nike stores and select retailers, CBS News reports.
The sneaker’s graphics include a portrait of Kaepernick on the back and has a black and white colorway.
“This Air Force 1 season, Nike partnered with a collective of collaborators to design an AF1 that connects to their life personally. Colin was identified because we believe his voice and perspective inspire many generations on and off the field,” Nike said in a statement.
Now, this highly-anticipated collaboration comes more than a year after Nike released a moving advertising campaign featuring Kaepernick following the controversy of his national anthem protest, which was in response to the treatment of Black Americans by law enforcement.
During the summer, Nike decided not to release its Air Max 1 Quick Strike Fourth of July shoe, which was reportedly because of objections from Kaepernick, who told the company that the Revolutionary-era U.S. flag with 13 white stars and a circle heralded back to a time when black people were enslaved and that it has been appropriated as a contemporary symbol by white nationalist groups.
