While I was on, this caught my attention because of the words - Nike and trouble.

I thought Nike had another copyright infringement, but when I clicked it, the definition of the Black and Tan came up...

Well, it's suppose to be based on the Guinness beer because that's the color of their beer.
Also, since most people are not into shoes and not aware of Nike getting their inspirations from beers like Heineken, New Castle, Tecate, and Miller High Life, they made a big deal about it...

Black and Tan:
Usually, Black and Tans. an armed force of about 6000 soldiers sent by the British government to Ireland in June, 1920, to suppress revolutionary activity: so called from the colors of their uniform.
