I've watched with dismay here in the US as Nike goalkeeper gloves heave steadily gained popularity. By all accounts, they make a very good glove (albeit no negative cut models and only one roll finger model, but then adidas also contrives to starve the American market when it comes to glove cuts), but as a company they're the same cold-hearted bastards they've always been. Follow the link if you want to know more about their sweatshop practices, and especially if you're one of those apologists who says, "But those people need the jobs Nike gives them."
I admit I'm selective in my causes, but this one really irritates me. Nike can easily afford decent production standards, but they choose the cheap route. I love you, Tim, but Nike sucks.
