Musty Cop: Police Officer Responds to Nike with Own Sneaker
Politicians are once again employing sneakers as weapons of mass discombobulation. Nike’s cancellation of the ‘Fourth of July’ Air Max 1 for slavery connections has inflamed right-wing patriots, and one, US Air Force veteran Ron Slagle, is choosing to fight fire with (sneakers that are very far from) fire. Slagle, now a police officer, appeared on Fox and Friends to share his ‘Honor and Respect’ sneakers, which he recommends for anyone who wanted the Betsy Ross Air Max 1s.
According to the aspiring Tinker Hatfield, ‘The Betsy Ross objection with the shoe for Nike translates into a loss of history’. He goes on to say that ‘The flag means freedom… The flag is a symbol of what we fought for and a lot of Americans are still fighting for today’.
As for the sneakers, these ‘Police Skechers’ need to go back to the drawing board. If Slagle wants these to hit the same resale highs as the Air Max 1s, we have one suggestion: add zip ties.
Naturally, Twitter held nothing back.
And the most-shared take:
Donald Trump Junior couldn't resist weighing in about the Air Max 1s either. You can read all about his communist accusations here.
