Nike releases shoe celebrating date Kaepernick first knelt for national anthem

Nike releases shoe celebrating date Kaepernick first knelt for national anthem

In a nod to the often-embattled pro sports player, Nike plans to release a line of shoes later this month honoring NFL player Colin Kaepernick and his infamous demonstrations against the United States national anthem during football games.

Kaepernick gained global fame after he refused to stand during the national anthem during a 2016 preseason game. The date of that demonstration, August 14, 2016, is emblazoned on the bottom of the new shoe line as 081416. The shoes also feature Kaepernick's likeness on the upper heel.

The shoe will sell for $110. They are part of Nike's Air Force series, a popular model that debuted in 1982.
