Teen Kelly Court Force Hi
So Nike designed this Court Force Hi with hot pink/safety yellow soles. It has baby blue and more hot pink and safety yellow though out. They topped it off with sea foam laces. The head of Design was about send the design off to a sweatshop supervisor in the Philippines when some mail room guy came in with the executive's new issue of SPIN magazine. The exec ask the young lad if he had any ideas the make the shoes more visible to a velociraptor. The young man suggested making the swoosh gold. The executive promptly fired himself and promoted that young man to vice president of R&D.
P.S. I'm just kidding. I have no knowledge of the inner workings of NIKE, just an active imagination.
