Nike’s Betsy Ross Shoes Selling for $2,500 after Recall

TMZ is reporting that pairs of the recalled Nike Betsy Ross flag shoes that were leaked to the public are selling online for up to $2,500!

The shoe was originally supposed to sell for around $120 and debut June 29th.

Nike pulled the shoe after Colin Kaepernick complained that the original Betsy Ross design of the United States of America flag hearkened back to the old days of slavery.

Now collectors are willing to pay high dollar.

One shoe auction site alone had a pair of the Nike’s sell for $2,501.

One seller has a pair of size tens and is asking for nearly $7,000 for them. The shoes were originally expected to resell for $250.

Would you be willing to pay high dollar for a pair of shoes knowing you weren’t ever going to wear them?

What do you think of Nike’s decision to pull the shoe based off of one former athlete’s point of view?
