Footwear manufacturer Nike is poised to release a “signature” sneaker series from Colin Kaepernick this December; despite the one-time quarterback holding no position in the NFL for years.
“Nike is expected to release the shoe across the U.S. in December as the company continues to develop a marketing strategy around the free-agent quarterback, industry sources told Yahoo Sports on Thursday,” reports Fox Business.
“While it’s unclear how many shoes the company will release, Nike reportedly believes that the demand for the item forced the apparel conglomerate to increase production numbers,” adds Fox.

Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick doubled-down on his US anthem protest this week; telling athletes who plan on kneeling during the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ to “stay strong” during the upcoming 2019 season.
“My Brothers @E_Reid35 @KSTiLLS @iThinkIsee12 continue to fight for the people, even in the face of death threats. They have never moved past the people and continue to put their beliefs into action. Stay strong Brothers!!!” posted Kaepernick on social media.

President Trump re-ignited his war-of-words with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick last Friday; saying the infamous protester should only return to the league if “he’s good enough.”
“I think if he was good enough — I know the owners. I know [New England Patriots owner] Bob Kraft. I know so many of the owners — if he’s good enough they’d sign him … they will do anything they can to win games,” Trump said
“Frankly I’d love to see Kaepernick come in if he’s good enough,” Trump added. “But I don’t want to see him come in because somebody thinks it’s a good PR move.”

“The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback was the first NFL player to take a knee during the national anthem to protest racial injustice, and has remained unsigned for nearly three years. Last year, he became the face of a Nike ad campaign, which drew blowback from the president,” reports The Hill.
