Rather than creating another homagé to food, Nike designers took a page from the USPS playbook when they recreated the Air Force 1. Let’s just say the experimental shoes has been met with mixed reviews.
Nonetheless….In honor of the USPS, the heel of the shoe features a ‘Nike’ Swoosh located where the American eagle logo would typically be. The design also carries a rich but soft powdery blue undersole,and blue zip ties atop the laces…
USPS official statement reads:
Let’s keep in mind that the USPS made this statement on April 1st , aka April Fool’s Day, here in the states. Nike has yet to make a statement.
All jokes aside, it wouldn’t be unheard of for a company to ask Nike to cease the use of USPS likeness logos, etc.
