No problem. They do this quite regularly. A quick google check usually brings their current location .

Nike reckon they lose £2.8bn a year to fake shirts.

 

Maybe they shouldn’t price them so ridiculously in the first place.

It doesn't sound like the BBC even bothered to find out anything about the fake shirts, saying stuff about "does it have washing instructions". They're such good fakes, they come with Nike labels, bags, holograms on the label.

 

And shite from the FA like "well we use the money to fund grass roots". What if you want to buy a shirt and just buy a shirt? Do you give an option for with and without charitable donations? No.

 

12 quid for the shirt, 130 quid for it bought off Nike. Of course people buy the fakes. Maybe if they cost what they're worth and a new one was released every few years rather than every time you go shopping, then people would wouldn't buy the fakes. And this "£2.8bn". That assumes that many who buy the fakes would buy a real one. Which they wouldn't.

I’ve a knock off 2019/20 shirt & an official replica bought cheap in 2021 & honestly I can’t tell the difference between them.

I think it’s the thrill. And sticking it to “the man”. 


And what of the Nike executives who work so hard to produce a quality product?

 

You should be ashamed of yourself.

What if I am a Nike executive? (I pronounced the “e” in Nike to make it really seem like I am one)

We should be ashamed of saving a few quid when our kids are desperate for the new shirt and we don’t have a couple of £100 to spare because we’ve got food to buy?  
 

Maybe Nike executives who work hard to produce ‘quality’ products should also consider their pricing policy. Unless of course you’re suggesting that 75% of the shirt production costs goes to the workers in the sweat shops??

What of the Nike executives bonus that is linked to his sales in the British market?

 

Is it fair for him to not become vice-president of sales in marketing in Europe, because people are taking the easy option?

No, I just think you need to look beyond your selfish immediate needs and to the greater market necessities.

What about Nikes immediate selfish needs?

Nike do not have “immediate selfish needs”.

 

They act in the best interests of the western economy and, thus, all of us.
 

Didn’t they learn you anything in school?
