Nike new woman’s shoe looks like an home iron

Nike’s new women’s trainer supported by an England Women’s footballer has been slammed for looking like an iron.

Customers say the Nike Air Max FF 720, which has two patterns and a thick clear plastic sole, looks like the household appliance. They think this sends the wrong message – despite the fact that England star Fran Kirby and tennis player Laura Robson have endorsed them.

A representative for feminist group Not 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.”

What’s more, individuals 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.
