Nike to Withhold Iranian Soccer Team’s Shoes for World Cup

nike free online kaufen Iran’s coach is protesting the move to FIFA, noting that players have been practicing with the Nike shoes and will now have to get used to an entirely different type at the last minute. It is unclear where Iran will get these last minute shoes from. Adidas is a possible replacement, however. The German company is already providing Iran’s team jerseys for the event, and despite US warnings, recent EU law has shielded EU companies from the US sanctions on Iran. Ironically, Iran’s team includes Swedish-born Saman Ghoddos, who has an individual contract with Nike. The Ostersunds FK star may find himself forbidden from using the shoes he’s explicitly contracted to wear by the company that pays him to wear them.

nike free run kaufen Despite Nike trying to present this as a continuation of US policy, Iran’s team was wearing Nike shoes in 2014, despite the exact same sanctions all being in place then. That Nike didn’t bother to cancel it until the last minute, literally days before Iran’s first game, only adds to the sense this was a move made out of spite at the behest of US officials. Iran opens up their World Cup play on Friday morning against Morocco in St. Petersburg. This latest project from Supreme and Nike may be their most random sneaker yet, but it won’t be any less hot. Released in 2003, the model was a high-performance road racing shoe with a unique fiery look. As the style was almost entirely forgotten in the years since by all but the most hardcore Nike running shoe collectors.

nike free damen sale The move by Supreme to bring it back is surprising, but it makes total sense given the current sneaker trends. Although the silhouette is far from the chunky-sneaker look that’s so popular right now, the shoe’s fiery detailing is akin to some of the graphic-heavy designs by Vans, which has been selling hordes of its own flame-covered sneakers as of late. The Supreme x Nike Air Streak Spectrum Plus will release in its original white and red colorway, along with a new version in black with lime and blue flames. The update features the streetwear label’s logo on the puffy tongue detailing and dual branding on the insoles. Nike will not provide cleats to the Iranian soccer team ahead of and during this month’s World.

nike free herren sale The move follows the Trump Administration’s decision to withdraw from the international nuclear deal made in 2015, though the sanctions that prevent the sportswear giant from working with the Iranian team have existed through multiple administrations, Nike said in a statement. “U.S. sanctions mean that, as a U.S. company, Nike cannot supply shoes to players in the Iranian National team at this time,” the company said. “Sanctions applicable to Nike have been in place for many years and are enforceable by law.” Some teams allow players to select their own cleats, including which brand, for competition. Some players, for example, may have sponsorship with Nike. Those deals, the company said, will not be affected.
