GOP Rep. Bruce Poliquin of Maine is telling supporters to wear New Balance sneakers to protest Nike’s decision to feature former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick in its new campaign.

"With Nike hiring Colin Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49ers famed kneeling quarterback, who protest during our national anthem, there has never been a better time to show off your Maine-Made New Balance shoes!" Poliquin wrote on Facebook.

And he added: "There are hundreds of your fellow Mainers who make these shoes that, no doubt, agree."

In the new Nike "Just Do It" campaign, Kaepernick says: "Believe in something even if it means sacrificing everything," The Hill noted.

But some people have been destroying their Nike gear to demonstrate against the company’s decision to use the controversial Kaepernick in the campaign.
