Re: For those who may still be buying Nike

I bought a pair of Brooks because I am old and my back hurts.

Re: For those who may still be buying Nike

I think most people see it that way but "back in the day" (early to mid seventies), the school I attended in Pasadena, Texas had a dress code that forbid wearing clothing that was decorated as a flag.

When I was just a kid, it was considered disrespectful to make the flag into clothing.
It is also against the U.S. Flag Code of Ethics:
§8. Respect for flag
No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.
The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.
The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.
The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.
The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker's desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.
Thanks for posting that. Exactly what I was posting about. My how times have changed.
