    Fury Over New Nike Air Max Women's Trainers That 'Look Like An Iron'

    The Nike Air Max FF 720 shoes, which are sponsored by England footballer Fran Kirby, have been slammed for sending out the wrong message





    Source: Mirror

    Nike's new women's trainer sponsored by an England Womens footballer has been slammed for resembling an iron.

    Shoppers say the Nike Air Max FF 720, which has two cut outs and a thick clear plastic sole, looks like the household appliance.

    They believe this sends out the wrong message - even though England star Fran Kirby and tennis player Laura Robson have endorsed the product.

    A spokesperson for feminist group Not Buying It commented sarcastically: "I'm sure they’ll be doing this for men too, of course.

    "Maybe it could be paired up with some 'extreme ironing' - you know, when people, mostly blokes, iron while sky diving."

    And people have taken to Twitter to share their disgust today.

    One drew the connection, prompting a raft of replies with pictures of real irons and captions.

    "Nike said... and Nike Iron," one person wrote.

    "So we are wearing iron inspired sneakers now? Wow! Wow," another posted.



    According to a review on Sneaker News, the new Nike Air Max FF 720 will be available in retailers from June 20.

    Ross Dwyer, a writer for Sneaker News, described the shoe as "unlike anything we’ve ever seen before."

    He went on to summarise the item as "ladies-only shoes/sandals/wearable concepts."

    Nike have been approached for comment on the latest controversy.



    This comes after another recent Nike gaffe which saw a woman shave her arms .

    People were furious that the company were suggesting women needed to remove hair from yet another part of their body.

    Instagram users blasted a promotional photo, in which a model in a sports bra is seen to have a little hair on her armpit.

    "This is not freedom, this is not a type of 'I love my body', this is bull****, shave that s***," proclaimed one angry user," read one comment online.
    "After the year 1900 people will become unrecognisable. When the time for the Advent of the Antichrist approaches, peoples minds will grow cloudy from carnal passions, and dishonour and lawlessness will grow stronger. Peoples appearances will change, and it will be impossible to distinguish men from women due to there shamelessness in dress and style of hair. These people will be cruel and will be like wild animals because of the temptations of the Antichrist. There will be no respect for parents or elders, love will disappear, and Christian pastors, bishops, and priests will become vain men, completely failing to distinguish the right hand way from the left. At that time the morals and traditions of Christians and the Church will change. People will abandon modesty, and dissipation will reign. Falsehood and greed will attain great proportions, and woe to those who pile up treasures. Lust, adultery, homosexuality, secret deeds and murder will rule in society." - St. Nilus, 430 AD

    Oh please! ....

    I couldn't care less about it allegedly resembling an iron (LOL ... how idiotic). Sounds like some people wanting to project their own preconceived ideas onto everything


    What I care about is that they are probably a couple hundred dollars at least and yet the workers in Asia got paid a pittance for manufacturing them .... the fact that giant corporations move all their jobs to Asia so they can pay them slave labour wages and then charge gullible 1st world shoppers an inflated price for stupid footwear with giant hype attached is ridiculous to me.

    Where's the outrage from women about all these women workers getting crappy wages?

    Why can't we make our own footwear in our own nations? Why can't we go to repair shops with good footwear like we used to instead of tossing our crappy products in the garbage and landfills to sign up for the next awesome hyped product.

    Corporations have been allowed to do this by slack and corrupt governments who don't really care about their own nation.


    There's my two cents

    My oh my. Don't these women have anything better or more important to do than complain about an ugly shoe? Dont like it, dont buy it. If they were attractive me, I'd buy a pair just to piss those types of women off. Gads, I have so many other important issues at hand in my life. They must have it easy to find time to bitch about an ugly shoe. When I first saw the shoe, as a female, I did not see an iron until it was mentioned, I saw an ugly shoe that would not work for me. I am still not offended. Get a life people, if you dont like it or are offended, I can think of 100 other things more important to us and our degrading society to bitch about. But then again, those who have time to whine about a shoe that reminds them of an iron, are part of the reason we are where we are.

    Hahaha, this is hilarious!

    Politics aside, sometimes serendipity (I doubt it was intentional, but they kind of do look like irons) + very, very "cereal" people make this world so much fun.

    Britain's "Advertising Standards Authority" on behalf of some feminist campaign group bans ads over "harmful gender stereotyping". No, not Nike, but in general.

    Look at that "pretty" face, this is one of those "women" campaigning for... I dont know, idiocy?


    "She" is also in the vid below, debating with Mike Buchanan from the "Justice for Men and Boys" party



    Did someone say #ClownWorld?
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    It is ugly isn't it ... if it was an iron, I'd definitely not buy it either

    Thanks to the title I see an iron in it. For the rest, I think it can be placed in the same category as seeing certain shapes in the clouds.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.
    - Sir Richard Steele

    First world problems....

    This means nothing to me, as I don't waste money on shitty trainers that look horrible and serve no practical purpose. Just don't waste money on trainers then there's nothing to get angry about. Zero sympathy for spoilt brats with that much money to waste on crap they don't need.
