Some took to social media to protest the sportswear giant’s move, burning their sneakers and cutting the Swooshes off their socks. Others commended the brand for taking a stand on a social issue that championed racial equality — one valued by its core demographic of Gen Zers and Millennials.
The debate around the groundbreaking ad even launched several controversies, including claims that Russian-backed accounts were involved in the call for a boycott of Nike products. And just this week, a New York Times report suggested the brand’s near-decision to cut ties with the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback last year, considering potential backlash from the NFL.
Here, FN breaks down the discussions that have surfaced following the ad’s release.
A Russian-propelled #NikeBoycott
There’s much talk about Russia’s influence in United States’ affairs. But in an ongoing investigation, data visualization company Graphika centered on the recent case of the ‘boycott Nike’ campaign, finding quantitative evidence that the online protests could be traced all the way to the Eurasian country.
Through its analysis, the firm discovered that accounts with known links to Russia’s disinformation campaign joined the protests, which were launched on social media by the ad’s critics. Although it wasn’t responsible for creating the boycott, the Russian accounts on Twitter reportedly helped further the reach of the #NikeBoycott hashtag, among others.
While it didn’t provide specifics, Graphika said the accounts were connected to known accounts tied to Russia’s Internet Research Agency, a company that is alleged to have previously engaged in targeting the election process in the US. It added that the Nike boycott was given a boost by Trump supporters with online accounts, sharing that 66.1 percent of #NikeBoycott hashtags were used by pro-Trump accounts, based on an initial analysis conducted within hours after Nike named Kaepernick the face of its new ad.
“The ‘boycott Nike’ campaign is the latest example of how social media polarization has developed a commercial bite,” CEO John Kelly told FN. “More than ever, brands are at risk of being drawn into the political fray, where automated accounts amp up the controversy. Usually they are pulled in reluctantly, which is why it’s so interesting that Nike chose to walk this path by design.”
Despite promoting a progressive message in its recent ad, Nike has reportedly historically thrown its money behind conservative candidates. That’s according to a recent analysis from the Center for Responsive Politics, which found that the company’s employees and political action committee have contributed more than three times as much money to the GOP ($424,000) versus the Democratic party ($122,000) in the 2018 election cycle.
The Washington, D.C.-based non-profit and non-partisan political research group added that the footwear behemoth has donated more to Republicans in every election season in the past decade, with the exception of 2008 and 2016.
Almost half of that spending reportedly originates from co-founder and chairman emeritus Phil Knight and wife Penny. A registered Republican, Knight chipped in $1.5 million to GOP candidate Knute Buehler’s campaign in his race for Oregon governor against incumbent Democrat Kate Brown, marking the largest single donation to a candidate in the state since it began tracking in 2006.
Standing by Kap
That said, Nike still pushed forward with the ad — but it wasn’t without its obstacles. Last summer, the company debated dropping the exiled football player from its roster of sponsored athletes, according to two anonymous sources cited in a New York Times report published on Wednesday. After all, the ad’s release risked kickback from the NFL, a partner with the athletic brand since 2012, and threatened to alienate some Nike customers.
However, as Nike stood by Kaepernick, so did its target market. Historically outspoken about social causes, the Swoosh saw skyrocketing online mentions and sales — as well as an all-time high in its stock. “Gen Z and Millennials will respect Nike doing this, and they are the core demographic for Nike,” Matt Powell, senior industry adviser for sports with The NPD Group Inc., told FN this month. “Two-thirds of the people who wear Nike footwear in the U.S. are younger than 35. This is the generation we’re talking about. Nike is really speaking to their consumer here.”
On Tuesday, Nike reported that its Q1 profits increased 15 percent to $1.1 billion, or 67 cents per share, topping analysts’ forecasts of 63 cents per share. As of Sept. 28, Nike’s stock closed at $84.72.

In a rare public appearance together last night, Bella Hadid and The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) stepped out hand-in-hand in New York City. And while the supermodel, who is finally getting some time off after a month packed full of fashion shows, showed off a cool ab-baring look, we couldn’t pull our eyes away from the “Starboy” hitmaker’s newly-released and highly buzzed-about Balenciaga dad sneakers.
The high-tech fashion sneaker, which dropped in the U.S. on Sept. 24, was designed by artistic director Demna Gvasalia and debuted on the runway at the luxury house’s fall ’18 presentation in March.
The pop star chose the style’s all-black colorway to go with his monochromatic black look, which included a drawstring hoodie and black jeans. The $895 Track shoe, which is encased in a multilayer lacing cage, also comes in yellow, blue and green and white and orange.
Meanwhile, the 21-year-old Nike ambassador opted for a pair of chunky black rubber Gao boots from Both Paris’ fall ’18 collection. Hadid also donned an ultra-cropped black sweater and matching cardigan with distressed jeans and a camo-print Dior saddle bag. She further accessorized with Jenny Bird’s Icon oversized hoop earrings.

While she may not have hit the red carpet, Taylor Swift joined her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, on Friday at the New York Film Festival premiere of his new movie “The Favourite,” co-starring Emma Stone. And the world noticed.
The pop superstar — who isn’t often photographed with her blond-haired beau of roughly two years — was photographed leaving through the back door of the venue, Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, modeling a sparkling, red and black sequined dress with lace detailing courtesy of Amen Couture fall ’18.
The 28-year-old “Reputation” pulled her sultry look together with a long black coat, a black satin Christian Louboutin Vanite clutch bag and slinky black velvet Jimmy Choo Lola sandals boasting a slight platform and crisscross ankle straps. A bright red lip and an assortment of delicate jewelry topped things off.
Meanwhile, Alwyn looked dapper sporting a navy suit paired with classic black dress shoes. On the red carpet, the 27-year-old London-born actor posed with Swift’s good friend Emma Stone, who wore a black and white patterned dress from Louis Vuitton with pointy-toed black double ankle-strap stiletto pumps.
Jennifer Lawrence, a friend of Stone, was also on hand for the event wearing a long black gown teamed with strappy gold sandals and a white clutch.

Raffia has been a signature in Clergerie’s collection since its 1990s glory days — and the French label’s new spring ’19 styles represent the brand’s future and give a nod to its rich heritage.
At Paris Fashion Week yesterday, creative director David Tourniaire-Beauciel unveiled his favorite style, an open-toe raffia mule with a metal heel and straw ornamentation.
“It’s a mix of the different pieces of DNA of Clergerie — the straw, the metallic heel and the ornament,” said the designer, who describes himself as a DJ who combines old and new. “The idea was to work on the artisanal straw in a more feminine way.”
Raffia has been a key trend in the European collections — and hitting the right fashion notes has been a goal for Tourniaire-Beauciel since he arrived at the brand almost two years ago.
“I’m taking the trends to the factory in Romans, France,” said the designer, who was born in the town, once a center for luxury shoemaking.
Throughout the collection, Tourniaire-Beauciel also introduced an articulated sole from an archival piece — as well as a transparent plexiglass heel and an memory-foam insole inspired by athletic shoes.
In the meantime, Clergerie is also collaborating with Beijing-based stylist Lucia Liu for spring ’19.
The mission, said Tourniaire-Beauciel, is to connect with personalities who “can represent in a new way” the DNA of the heritage footwear brand.
Liu, one of China’s most influential stylists who was a judge on “China’s Next Top Model,” revisited the signature Clergerie platforms on soles with floral embroideries produced in her native Sichuan region.
Two styles are available, in black or white: a high monk-strap version with a 100-millimeter articulated wedge, and a lace-up derby style with an 85 millimeter articulated wedge.
“It’s how you use those elements. I think the sense of color and [traditional details] have always influenced my own styling and personal life, and here I tried to modernize it,” said Liu, describing the shoes as “colorful but still quite cool, with the high platform.” — With contributions by Katya Foreman.
Kim Kardashian has her hands full this weekend. At least that’s how it appeared when she hit the streets with her three children in tow today. The mogul-mom was photographed en route to the iconic Electric Lady Studios in New York City where Kanye West has been recording his new album “Yandhi,” which is slated to release tonight in conjunction with his “Saturday Night Live” appearance.
Kardashian stepped out in a bright neon ensemble that included a hot pink zip-up windbreaker and a pair of skintight bubblegum pink leggings. Her athleisure look was complete with a simple high ponytail and an unreleased Yeezy 700 iteration coming in a gray and white colorway with blue reflective detailing surrounding the toe box and along both sides of the sneaker.
The 37-year-old KKW Beauty creator previously teased the chunky sneakers, along with a number of other yet-to-drop Yeezy styles, on her Instagram story throughout summer. Saint, 2, also wore a tiny pair of popular Yeezy 700 kicks featuring a dad-like silhouette designed by his dad.
Meanwhile, the reality star and rapper’s 5-year-old daughter North West showed off a bright neon green dress boasting ruffle detailing teamed with a matching crossbody bag and white, pint-sized Vans Authentic sneakers. She further accessorized with futuristic shades featuring a matching lime-hued trim. As for 8-month-old Chicago — she went barefoot but modeled an adorable, cream-colored outfit that looked impossibly cozy.

When it comes to cool runway venues, showing in your own newly inaugurated street is a pretty hard one to top. Tonight in Paris, moments after the city’s mayor, Anne Hidalgo had officially inaugurated it, Sonia Rykiel creative director Julie de Liban presented her brand’s spring 19 collection in Allée Sonia Rykiel.
The show, coinciding with the house’s 50th anniversary, celebrated languid Sunday style and featured new takes on its most famous pieces such as the stripy Marinière sweater, the trench, the pyjama suit and the knit dress. Said knit came reimagined in all permutations including sporty mesh details and panels, hand-crafted using macramé technique. It even translated into woven basket bags and slingbacks in cheerfully colored primaries.
Those mesh details also recalled the old fashioned utility shopping bags enjoying a reprise thanks to the likes of Vetements and Marine Serre. They were particularly appropriate in view of the fact that the Allée Sonia Rykiel is also the site of an organic food market, open for business every Sunday, tomorrow included.
Likewise the Marinières both evoked and matched the stripy market awnings erected on either side of the runway while elsewhere, flatforms and scuba knit sandals were totally pavement appropriate.
Sonia Rykiel, the late founder of the eponymous house is the very first fashion designer to have a road named in her honor. The Rive Gauche locale of Allée Sonia Rykiel lies nearby her very first boutique and the Left Bank Saint Germain area that became synonymous with her joie de vivre and the liberated feminist spirit she both embodied and encouraged in her followers.
See more photos of Sonia Rykiel’s spring ’19 show.
While the supermodel strutted her stuff on the catwalk to beat of Prince’s “When Doves Cry,” modeling two bold looks from the French fashion designer, Benson appeared on the sidelines, sporting a sexy black ensemble made complete with an ’80s-inspired shimmery black sequined jacket featuring blue fringe detailing from Balmain’s fall ’18 collection.
The “Pretty Little Liars” alum’s outfit also included shiny black patent leather pants, a plunging black lacy camisole, a black leather bag and black suede PVC pumps boating a pointy-toed silhouette with crisscross straps.
Meanwhile, as the gal pals left the show’s venue, Delevingne — who’s last show was for Christopher Bailey’s final Burberry show in February — showed off slicked back hair with cool shades, a navy blazer over a revealing gray cut-out crop top and black high-rise pants with simple black suede boots.

If you’re looking for celebrity-approved outfit ideas for work, Amal Clooney is a sure bet. The human rights lawyer always looks impossibly stylish while keeping it professional and sophisticated—a winning combo, if you ask us. Of course, her latest outfit in New York City is no exception.
En route to an event for the Committee to Protect Journalists, Clooney wore a polished red sheath dress with a sleek overlay that reminded us of the Givenchy dress Meghan Markle wore to an event with Queen Elizabeth II. While Markle’s was a more subdued beige color, Clooney’s fire engine–red number was the perfect antidote to chilly fall weather. She rounded out the look with nude pieces, including a matching tote, pumps, and coat. Scroll down to see her look and shop the trend.
Kim Kardashian West’s outfits often cost eye-watering amounts, and yesterday she took that one step further by assembling a billion-pound look made out of nothing but dollar bills. “What do you do when your friend sells her company for a couple billion?” she said on her Instagram story. “You wear a full money ’fit and throw her a party.”
West wore a pair of Balenciaga pointed knife boots covered in notes, a vintage Jeremy Scott dollar bill trench coat, and a crystal-encrusted “money pouch” bag, which cost over $4000. We think this might be the flashiest outfit any member of the Kardashian-West-Jenner family has worn to date (which, we all know, is quite the achievement). Keep scrolling to see KKW’s billionaire outfit.
For obvious reasons, leggings are a wardrobe staple that none of us plan to part with anytime soon. Wearing them to work out or run errands or as a comfortable outfit solution for a long road trip are a few of the most widely accepted situations to don comfy leggings. But if you’re hopelessly devoted to them (which you probably are, if you’re reading this), you’d prefer to wear them for a wider variety of occasions, right? Well, good news. We searched the depths of the internet for the best leggings that look just like trousers. They truly make wearing leggings as pants okay, and that’s saying a lot.
In our trouser-like legging research, we were pleased to find that brands have clearly responded to the demand of shoppers wanting leggings that they can wear anywhere and everywhere. For example, there are checked leggings from Zara and H&M for work, leather leggings from J Brand and Helmut Lang for date night, and 19 more options for everything in between. Read on to shop 23 cool pairs of leggings that we promise look just like trousers.
As someone who is in between clothing sizes and has an irritatingly not-right-for-any-store kind of curvy, petite figure, it’s probably no surprise that my biggest vice is shoes. I’m scared to count how many I actually own, but I think around the 300 mark wouldn’t be an entirely OTT estimate. What’s more important than the number, though (back me up here), is the fact that I get lots of wear out of almost all of the footwear I have bought over the years. I religiously get new pieces seen to by a cobbler (key to getting rubber soles put into leather soles for example, as your shoes will last longer), and I try to ensure that I buy only comfy heels, which means there are a lot of midi and kitten heels in my repertoire. I don’t mind buying high street (although I know now where to go for the best quality affordable shoes), but I’m more likely to invest bigger bucks into a pair of designer boots than I am an It bag any day of the week.
So, if you’re a fellow shoe fanatic, this is the shopping gallery to keep checking in on. Scroll to shop the shoes—from sandals to mules, courts to boots—I’m buying/obsessing over/adding to my wish list now.

While it’s true that attaining a celeb-worthy wardrobe can quickly take you into credit card debt (hey, they have expensive taste), there are those occasional moments when celebs, too, enjoy a high-low mix. The affordable pieces we do spot them in have a tendency to sell out at nearly the speed of light, as we’ve seen happen over and over again with buzzy celebs whose wardrobes we stalk on the regular. Instead of waiting to see which wallet-friendly pieces they’ll emerge in next, we went straight to the source and asked the celebrity wardrobe stylists themselves, who are almost always behind all these It outfits.
Two of Hollywood’s most prominent celebrity stylists let us in on their favorite shoe brands to dress their clients in, especially for red carpet appearances. We tapped Anita Patrickson—who regularly dresses Julianne Hough, Chanel Iman, and so many others—and Nicole Chavez, whose clients include Kristen Bell and Rachel Bilson. Both Patrickson and Chavez are industry veterans and authorities on red carpet style, so when they recommend the following brands, we pay close attention.
From the everyday staple shoes to red carpet–ready heels, keep reading to discover which affordable shoe brands you can expect to see their clients wear and then heed their advice and shop our picks.
Well, the experts have spoken.
Whenever a trend surfaces that I’m not necessarily 100% committed to but still want to try, I always beeline for one of my favorite affordable brands. That way, if I’m over it by the next year (or, let’s face it, the next month), I can move on with no regrets.
One of the places I always look for trendy pieces that won’t break the bank is Mango because its clothes and accessories always look and feel way more expensive than what’s on the actual price tag. I’m currently all over the animal-print and Western-inspired items available, but I’m also eyeing the luxe-looking basics. Even better, my current Mango faves are all under $100, meaning I won’t have to narrow down my shopping cart one bit. Want in? See all of the affordably priced items I’m buying to look like I spent way more this fall.
Now that you know the best under-$100 to buy from Mango, see how more of my favorite pieces from the brand look IRL.
I occasionally love crunching numbers (completely different brain stimulus than my daily creative pursuits!) and always love budget buys. Put the two together, and what do you have? A girl who’s very curious about how the average woman defines a cheap clothing item. So, I conducted my own (probably unscientific) study with the help of Google forms and our Who What Wear Insiders Facebook group members, who so kindly took my survey. I asked at what price point does an item become affordable across a handful of categories, and averaged all the entries together. The result is a peek into what we collectively consider “cheap.” Scroll down to see how it compares to your point of view and to shop some budget picks—below the outlined price caps, of course.

Poof! Imagine $100 at Zara drops into your lap. What would you buy? This is the question I posed to my fellow editors, and with our imaginary money, we all found different yet equally thrilling gems. Managing editor Michelle Scanga is leaning hard into the leopard pieces, which makes great sense given that they’re selling out fast. Senior news editor Erin Fitzpatrick took her fellow editor’s piece on the ’80s jewelry trend to heart and snagged a pair of colorful baubles. As for myself, I blew my entire budget on one standout piece: a rich chocolate brown slip that is styled to perfection with stirrup leggings (again with the ’80s) and minimalist sandals. After one of our editors wrote about the lingerie-style pieces hiding on the site, I knew I needed to get one for myself.
