    No. It's Nike. They had a literal cult following in the 90s. You horse's ass.

    Couldn't he sell Sketchers or New Balance? Plenty of people don't sell Nike.

    It's a sporting goods store, not a shoe store.

    I hope his wife leaves him over such a dumb decision.

    "Honey! How was I supposed to know stopping selling the most popular sports brand to ever exist would negatively affect business?" :dunno:

    You really don't get the point of the story, do you? It's not about what brand of shoes he sells. It's about his customer's response to his political stand to not sell Nike. He could have probably gotten away with just removing them from his shelves, but he insisted on making a big announcement about it. His customers responded by not going into his store. Looks like more people support Kaepernick and NIKE than you thought. He lost his store because of his goofy behavior. Good.

    I didn't see anything in the article about a big announcement or customers responding to his political stance. He stopped selling Nike, one of the biggest brands in sports paraphernalia with contracts with major sports organizations, and his sales tanked.
