After multiple sexual assault and rape allegations, Nike has dropped one of their premium athletes from their team. They have removed New England Patriots WR Antonio Brown as a sponsored athlete. Nike has suspended Browns’ signature shoe deal, and has removed the shoes from their site.
Nike and AB joined forces to create the Nike Tech Trainer Antonio Brown signature shoe. The shoe was released in February of this year and retailed for $100.
The shoe deal is the second endorsement deal forcibly removed from Brown over the last week stemming from the sexual assault allegations. Brown previously established a deal with helmet provider Xenith amidst the helmet drama that helped catapult the former Raider into the hands of the New England Patriots.
