Nike’s inappropriately named “Air Stab” trainers

This is just a casual observation, but don’t you think that Nike could have chosen a more suitable name than "Stab" for their latest trainer drop? Considering that Nike is one of the most desired labels amongst the young, urban population, those most affected by knife crime (and, it seems, the cause of it in many cases), Nike could have been a little more sensitive. Or is it me who is being too sensitive? Let us know your views.

I love the trainers themselves, with Nike taking a note from the New Balance camp in the design of the uppers and the silhouette. The simple, granite colour is cool too, with greys having made in roads into men’s footwear over the last couple of seasons.
