Sometimes it seems like the most popular things aren’t actually that popular. Take, for example, canned cheese, boiled beets, and Snooky. Sure, they may seem like the best things on Earth but that’s far from the truth. Well, it turns out the same goes for Nike and Adidas. Many celebrities hate these shoe brands. Let’s take a look at five of them.
1. KANYE WEST HATES NIKE; OPTS FOR ADIDAS INSTEAD
Kanye West hates a lot of things but apparently, this includes “the swoosh” too. While you were all partying away last New Years Eve, Kanye released a diss song to the iconic shoe brand. Meanwhile, he went across the aisle to form a partnership with rival Adidas.
2. NEITHER NIKE OR ADIDAS CAN WOO STEPHEN CURRY
There are many theories of why Stephen Curry went with Under Armour instead of some other famous brand to wear at games. Some say the big companies didn’t let Curry put his favorite bible verse on the shoe. Others say he just got lazy. Why does Curry hate these big shoe companies? Well, that’s anyone’s guess but the man has spoken.
3. MANNY PACQUIAO HATES GAYS AND NIKE; WILL ADIDAS PICK HIM UP?
Why did Manny Pacquiao lose a huge sponsorship? For starters, he hates gays. At least that’s what it seems like in his homophobic rant. Well, hopefully, that rant felt good because some big names dropped Pacquiao like a K.O. hit shortly after. Let that be a lesson, kids. If you get famous, keep your opinions to yourself.
4. NIKE LOSES ANOTHER TO KEVIN PLANK
Not only does Kevin Plank dislike NIKE, but apparently, he wants to topple “the swoosh” with his own thing. To do that, he’s enlisting the help of arch nemesis Under Armour. Will he do it? Only time will tell but he has a better chance than most.
5. MICHIGAN HATES ADIDAS
This one hurts. Instead of losing just one professional athlete, the famous shoe company lost the entire University of Michigan. Guess who they went to? Yeah, the big swoosh.
