NIKE USA Inc. Recalls Jordan Trunner Cross-Training Shoes

Beaverton, OR (SafetyAlerts) - NIKE USA Inc. said today it is voluntarily recalling about 225,000 pairs of its Jordan Trunner LX and Jordan Trunner 2000 cross-training shoes. The shoes have a thin metal strip on the outside of the heel that can protrude from the shoe and form a sharp edge that can cut consumers.

NIKE has received 16 reports of consumers receiving cuts to the lower legs from the metal strip on these shoes, including several reports of persons requiring stitches.

The NIKE Jordan Trunner LX and Jordan Trunner 2000 Mid shoes being recalled have a strip of metal about 4-inches long at the upper part of the back of the shoe, which is encased in plastic. These shoes are size six and higher, and have model numbers 136040 (the Jordan Trunner LX) and model number 136050 (the Jordan Trunner 2000 Mid). On the Trunner LX, the model number is located on a label on the inside tongue of the shoe, above the UPC code. On the Trunner 2000 Mid, the model number is located above the UPC code on a label inside the heel of the shoe. The Trunner LX is available in various color combinations. The Trunner LX has a Velcro strip instead of laces, and has the word "JORDAN" on a cloth strip just below the Velcro strap and also on the bottom of the shoe. The Trunner 2000 Mid comes in two color combinations: white and black with metallic silver trim, and black and gray with fluorescent yellow trim. The name "JORDAN" appears in block letters near the shoelaces and on the bottom of the shoe, and "TRUNNER" appears on the back heel of the shoe over the metal strip.

Major athletic shoe stores and department stores nationwide sold these shoes from May 2000 to February 2001 for between $100 and $125. Consumers should stop using these cross-training shoes and immediately return them to the store where purchased to receive a substitute product or a store credit. For more information, consumers should call NIKE at (800) 344-6453 between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or access the Nike website at
