Did Nike say that?

If you haven't seen it already - here is that email collection between Nike and "Jonah H. Peretti" - Jonah tried to buy some personalized Nike shoes from them, with the word "sweatshop" under their logo.

At Nike's site you can open a " Design your own shoe " link, a very popular feature that looks like the idea was stolen from Customatix.com the "design your own shoe" site.

The idea is that you customise your own shoe by submitting a phrase or word to be stitched on to you personal pair. So Jonah Peretti filled out the form and sent them $50 to stitch "SWEATSHOP" on to his shoes.
