Wearing nike shoes

Question ID: 26468

Assalamalaikum wa rahmat Allah wa barakatu,
I wanted to know whether wearing nike shoes is haram? I know that the origin of the name is an ancient greek idol and the logo was based on the “wing” of this false idol but before I knew this I always liked the shoes because of their style and quality and own several pairs of these shoes now. When I see the shoes I don’t think of them as a religious symbol of any kind. They are just shoes to me and I think the name of the company was more of a “symbolic” one. When I wear the shoes, my pants usually cover up the name and most of the logo (the check mark). If I cover up the name with a piece of black tape, would it be permissible to wear it? The logo may show when I sit down and lift my pants.
Thank you for your time and help and jazaak Allah khair brother.
Assalamalaikum wa rahmat Allah wa barakatu

Although not Haraam. It is best to avoid. May cover up. Do not let trouser flow below the ankles if male.
