Colin Kaepernick Bags His Own Nike Line of Clothing and Apparel

Colin Kaepernick

*Colin Kaepernick and Nike have announced the release of his own line of apparel and shoes. 

According to Yahoo Sports, one featured item within Kaepernick’s line of clothing is the plain black jersey, which has no NFL logos, only Kaepernick’s number, 7, along with his name on it.

We previously reported, Kaepernick provided a sneak peek of the shoes before his workout for NFL scouts last month. 

According to Heavy.com, the shoes appear to be “a new colorway of Nike Air Force 1 lows which Kaepernick wore as he warmed up in his recent workout for NFL teams,” the outlet writes.

Nike insists this new line of shoes can be worn by athletes and non-sporty folks.

NFL player Eric Reed posted a photo of Kaepernick’s signature shoes on Instagram. 

“Game day fit ?You already know #ImwithKap y’all see the kicks,” Reid captioned the IG post (see above).

The shoes are part of Kaepernick’s endorsement deal with Nike which the company renewed in 2018. Yahoo previously reported that the deal is worth “millions per year plus royalties.”

 “We believe that Colin Kaepernick is one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation, who has leveraged the power of sport to help move the world forward. The jersey marks Nike’s continued product collaboration with Colin.” 

Kaepernick’s signature shoe is expected to roll out across the U.S. this month.

  1. I have always worn Nike apparel and I am 47 years old who is active. To endorse Colin Kaepernick is a disgrace. He is a piece of trash who hates the country that has given him a platform. Why doesn’t Nike have Kaepernick go on police ridealongs in bad areas so he understands what law enforcement has to deal with on a daily basis. I’m going to take a knee and pray that Kaepernick never gets picked up by another nfl team. The nfl can’t afford a loss of revenue because of one ignorant racist player. I’ll bet money that Kaepernick has no idea of what the laws are. He needs to do his homework. I’m doubting that he can’t read past a 7 th grader and I’m being nice. Go Away Colin!!!
