The last time I talked about my Nikes was about two weeks ago when I slipped my feet into my runners and was punched in the face by a potent cat piss stench. That’ll teach me for airing them out in the back yard over night.
Fast forward 14 days and the chat surrounding Nike is a tad more meaningful than my urine scented kicks.
Everyone has been chiming in their two cents about former NFL player Colin Kaepernick being the face of Nike’s 30 years of the Just Do It campaign, you can read a cracking piece about that here.
On top of that, Nike has gathered a tribe of kick arse female athletes to star in their latest Mexican commercial that shows these broads powerfully battling and beating the bullshit sexism women are faced with everyday.
This commercial has the boldness and brilliance of a Super Bowl commercial. I hope all women in Latin America are high-fiving each other and although we know the aim of every marketing campaign is rake in the millions, Nike deserve it for the important conversations they are creating and the bold statements they are making.
Nike for President.
