Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he’d be first to buy a pair of these sneakers, canceled by Nike.

Sen. Mitch McConnell sees no problem with the American flag-themed sneaker Nike decided to pull amid criticism from former NFL star Colin Kaepernick, and says he’d be first in line if the company reverses its decision.

“I’ll make the first order,” said McConnell, the Senate majority leader, at a Tuesday event celebrating hemp in his home state of Kentucky, according to the Lexington Herald Leader.

The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that Nike NKE, 0.55%   created the Air Max 1 USA in celebration of the July Fourth holiday, and it was slated to go on sale this week. The heel of the shoe featured a U.S. flag with 13 white stars in a circle, a design created during the American Revolution and commonly referred to as the Betsy Ross flag.

The Journal said after images of the shoe were posted online, Nike endorser Kaepernick reached out to company officials saying that he and others felt the Betsy Ross flag is an offensive symbol because of its connection to an era of slavery.

While the sneaker giant says it “has chosen not to release” the shoe, retailers did receive shipments and Nike asked for them to be returned.

As MarketWatch reported, pairs of the Air Max 1 USA were selling for as much as $2,501 on Tuesday, according to the sneaker reselling site StockX. The shoe’s retail price was listed at $120.
