Nike shoes usually have a "Swoosh" (their trademarked logo) on them. (Most of the Air Jordan shoes are exceptions.) However, Nike can't decide which end comes first on what is obviously some type of airfoil...

Air Max Triax running shoe, 1994 version: white and black with purple SWOOSH and trim Like most Nike shoes, the Air Max Triax has the SWOOSH with the point at the back of the shoe.

Air Darwin - is this a HSOOWS or what?

Nike Air Darwin High basketball shoe: white and black with black SWOOSH Nike did something backwards on this shoe. What were they thinking? (There was another reversed model, the Air Check, where it looked like a checkmark...)
