    Using the flag on a shoe violates the flag code.

    Unless an article of clothing is made from an actual flag there is no breach of flag etiquette.

    Unless an article of clothing is made from an actual United States flag, there is NO breach of flag etiquette whatsoever. People are simply expressing their patriotism and love of country by wearing an article of clothing that happens to be red, white, and blue with stars and stripes. There is nothing illegal about the wearing or use of these items.

    i would think shoes would fall under this. but the code is ignored pretty much all of the time wrt clothing, paper plates, etc.

    (i) The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown.

    (j) No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be affixed to the uniform of military personnel, firemen, policemen, and members of patriotic organizations. The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.

    I find it interesting.

    Kaepernick makes a comment about using the flag on shoes, and he is all of a sudden the mouthpiece for liberal thought and policy.

    Yet the president, does whatever it is he does, and many Republicans say that he isn’t representative of Republican values.

    I think the answer here lies in what qualifies as a flag. You would never see anyone wave a patch or run it up a flagpole. If Nike cut an actual flag and sewed it to a shoe that would be against the code. A patch is not a flag.

    At least that’s the way I’ve always understood it. I stand to be corrected.

    i have always understood it that the image of the flag is not to be used in an incorrect manner on clothing, etc. based on my understanding, nearly every 4th of july and memorial day picnic, fireworks show, etc are in violation of the flag code

    regardless, i don't think what is going on has much to do with the flag code. it is a private company making product decisions based on how they think the market will react.
