They said on Fox Business that Nike stock was down 3% today and in my opinion I hope it keeps going down. It serves them right for getting involved in something so controversial.

Never could wear a Nike anyhow. Too dang narrow.
I wonder when some of the folks making these decisions are going to look at the evidence? Your stock dropped 3%. NFL viewership has been down since these antics began. The information is there. There are folks who think he is a saint....and maybe more who dont.

My wife had plenty of Nikes..until this. She purged the closet, I bet 20 pairs in total. Gonna cost a fortune to replace in another brand. I do not understand why Nike did it, I guess they see a strategy in it.

Nike's stock has fully recovered and gained since the ad campaign came out.

It will turn out to be a clever marketing strategy in the long run.

The New Balance hiking boots are a very nice all around boot/shoe. I wear them everywhere. They keep your feet dry even if you step in a puddle and are light weight. They also come in narrow sizes which is what I need.

I ain’t buying em neither. For more reasons than one. I operate on both ends of the spectrum. Either crocs or boots here.
