This week, several images of Nike’s new shoe model, the Air Force 1 Low, were leaked, but a user noticed that there is a serious linguistic error in its design and express his anger through Twitter.
“No, I can’t help myself,” said a woman named Zoe Gardner. “I know it doesn’t matter, only an idiot would use [unas] sneakers where it’s written ‘piks’ in Greek letters and I’d think it says ‘Nike’ and I shouldn’t care what shoes idiots wear, but god, it irritates me so much“he added.
Oh I cannot contain it. These make me so mad. I know it doesn’t matter, only an idiot would wear shoes that say “piks” in Greek letters and think it said Nike and I shouldn’t care what shoes idiots wear but my GOD IT MAKES ME SO MAD. THERE’S 11 MILLION GREEK PEOPLE. ASK ONE. pic.twitter.com/4wgklHJ5HR

He also explained that the letter ‘П’ corresponds to a ‘P’ in English, while the spelling ‘Σ’ is equivalent to an ‘S’. “There are eleven million Greeks. Ask one,” added the netizen, annoyed, who also appeals to Cypriots, those who study classical languages and “people in general who know basic things.”
“I have not finished. Nike is, first of all, a damn word. Oh god, what anger,” Gardner finished in reference to the American multinational, whose name was inspired by Nike, the goddess of victory in Greek mythology.
