After stocks hit an all-time high and online sales rose by 31%, Nike is continuing to feel commercial benefits from its Colin Kaepernick advert. According to new research from Thomson Reuters Proprietary Research, the 10-day period after the advert was released saw Nike sell-out significantly more products than the corresponding period before the advert was revealed.

Between September 3 and September 13, Nike sold out 61% more of its products than in the 10 days leading up to the adverts release. The same period also saw Nike discount fewer products.
