Pink Nikes Hot Valentine's Item

Posted on February 15, 2005

A special Valentine's Day pink limited edition of Nike's Air Force 1 tennis shoe was a hot item. The Flint Journal, published in Michigan, reported that local retailers were selling out entire stocks of the shoe.

"You wouldn't believe how people act over a tennis shoe," Stuart Wilson, a manager of Finish Line store, told the Flint Journal.

The Nike website says the Air Force 1 shoes are not sold online. Nike's website says, "The Air Force 1 is a shoe not authorized to be sold on the Internet and is produced in a limited quantity. Nike does not stock or sell this model directly. Please check with your local Niketown, Foot Locker, Footaction or Finish Line stores for availability. You may find store locations in your area using our Store Locator tool at Niketown.com."
