Apologies if the NYT paywall intervenes and disallows the page view.

The article includes a link to the story of skater Gracie Gold, who has a similar tale to tell.

When Nike first got big I read where their shoes were made in Chinese labor camps run by the state. (I believe it was Time magazine) When they needed more workers they simply arrested more people. I have never bought a Nike product and never will.

Nike's focus is advertising and selling their products.
