Petition against Nike 38 thousand times signed

A Muslim woman has started an (online) petition against Nike because of the text Allah in Arabic under the sole of Nike Air Max 270 shoes.

According to Nike there is Air Max written, but upside down there is the text Allah in Arabic to read. The Muslim woman demands that Nike recall all shoes and change the logo for future models. Nike is currently looking for a solution for their newer models. A Nike sneaker is normally offered for sale in the stores between 3 months and 9 months after production. The petition had as goal to have 25 thousand signers.

Update
Nike says in a comment that it respects all religions and that they take concerns of this nature seriously. The company also announces that the logo is a stylized representation of Nike's trademark Air Max and that any other observed meaning or representation is unintended. Nike looks at such complaints every month and because of that there is possibility to change the logo.
