Complaint / review text:
Laughs... Love the Caption above here saying "Tell us what you think", are you serious, are you actually kidding yourselves, believing that we the public believe Nike actually give a about what we think???
I'll give you ONE example why A. Copyright infringement exists, and B. Why websites selling Nike copies, of Soccer Boots are exploding, and drawing HUGE traffic.
We live in Australia, a second rate and none to important market, according to Nike, I was told this by a Nike employee in the city we live!
A. My son wanted to buy a pair of Nike Mecurial Superfly Soccer boots, we searched all of the Australian Nike stores only to be told and I quote "Sorry mate, we as a store get what we are given by Nike US, and we don't have a choice on colours, number of pairs, sizing, and availability" We then searched many other sports stores to find the boots, only to be told "Sorry mate, Nike have very tight control on who and what stores can purchase, then onsell their boots". On top of this, we now decided it's best to look at stores like "Pro Direct" in the UK selling authentic Nike boots, as clearly, Nike doesn't supply to Australia!
Well the same problem presented here, Pro Direct only had a few boots, and none in the size we were after, the problem just got bigger, not to mention that to buy ONE pair of boots was now going to cost close to $500:00 PLUS $70:00 AUD postage, to get them to Australia, that’s not happening!!!
So, I guess you get my drift, in Nike's aloof, and arrogant manor, they have pushed these products out of the reach of most normal mortals, and wait for it... Opened up a HUGE illegal market for fake Nike product.
Nike have also closed the door on consumer choice, making only ridiculous colours available at certain times and releasing only miniscule quantities to their chosen markets.
Now these illegal Nike copies are pretty good, I have seen them, and could not spot a difference, but for $100:00 instead $570:00, if there were a difference... Pfffsssttt who really cares, you see, young lads just want the boots, and they want them in their size and in the colour they want, an so IF Nike, you don't want to assist in this consumer demand, and give people what they want, and bury your collective arrogant heads in the sand, illegal copies of your product will flourish beyond your wildest dreams!
Make NO MISTAKE, my son had his birthday, Christmas and borrowed money ready to buy these original Nike boots, he didn’t want FAKE boots!
Oh, and another thing, Australia IS a largish country somewhere in the Pacific Ocean, check it out sometime, there's kids here who play soccer, but don't send a sales team here mate, the kids all know where to buy your product, and it isn't a NIKE store!!!
It's like the same old story for whinging Movie Moguls, I could make them billions, and wipe out piracy overnight (To a degree lol).
Offer older movies for download for $2:00, most people like a library, I'm standing in line at the supermaket and I see a DVD stand with Romancing the Stone for $27:00 WTF, are you serious! Why do these companies not see this and say at an all catered boardroom meeting, hey guys, do you want 10 million downloads at $2:00 each, or 10 million downloads at $0:0 each, ahhhhh that's a good idea, let’s NOT do it!
Bless China, and I'm not even religious!
Corporate conceited people, you have them in spades Nike, but NOT boots!
Not one product will my son ever by from your stores EVER again, and that's a hard thing for a lad who wants to be like his idol, but he is smart enough to know when he is being treated with disdain!
Shame on you Nike!
