nike trainers are not good quality
I just designed and bought some nike trainers after seeing that other thread about it - cost £90 + P&P. As you can design them yourself (all the colours etc) they are gonna be pretty unique. The only problem is the 5 week deliverly time.

Yup - http://www.nikeid.com/europe

You choose a 'model' and then customise all the colourings etc and can even have an id put on it - i've got 'niknak' lol

Be careful though, I went on there just to look but liked my design so much I bought it lol

....and no, I don't work for nike!

ok, i know its naive to think thats its only nike, adidas and gap that use sweatshop labour, but those have been well-documented.

also, i cant pretend thats why i dont buy it -i dont buy it becasue i dt like the image, design or price, which brings me back to my original point --is fashion pointless? lol

Although this may have been the case in the past, as you said this is now well-documented and they have all been investigated. As these practices are illegal, they almost definately won't be doing that anymore.

btw...see my above post if u wanna design your own, everyone posted at once so you may have missed it.

Virtually all companies exploit overseas work forces as cheap labour anyway (although not sweatshops but paying them low wages).

For example, if you are using a laptop right now, its 99% certain that it was put together in indonesia or mayalsia (even hp, compaq, packard bell etc). That is the hub of world computer manufacturing that has built up there so much because of not having to pay employees high wages.

well the interview thing is simple dress code, and i know its here to stay! i just think its wrong, thats all! why do companies like nike HAVE to charge so much if they can get cheap labour, and why do people pay it? there are products which are made in the same factory, on the same production lines - - then at the end of that line, half go off to be shipped, and half go through one more process, stamping/sewing on a name thats costs the company an extra 1p a time, at the very most!

the difference in the product? 1p of cotton thread
the difference in price? about £40

i think this was with hats by helly hansen, but i'm sure there are more instances like it!

Its supply and demand no body like paying that much but they will. like a millionnaire would'nt care if he spent 2 grand on a suit, its all relative to the amount of money we have
