After receiving news that Nike raked in $43 million USD worth of media exposure for its controversal Colin Kaepernick ad, it has now be reported that the sportswear giant’s online sales have also grown by 31%. This big boost in sales also has Kaepernick to thank.

According to a report from Edison Trends, Nike’s online sales grew 31% from Sunday through Tuesday of Labor Day weekend this year, which is notably greater than last year’s 17% seasonal increase. This data includes only online sales and omits the company’s brick and mortar locations.
