The Flea's Human Resources Advisor forwards news from Hanzi Smatter, "dedicated to the misuse of Chinese characters (Hanzi or Kanji) in Western culture." It seems Nike has made a somewhat odd choice of message for a pair of $320 trainers. I doubt this was the image they were looking for.

The phrase means "self-suspicion" or "self-doubt". What a great way for Nike to rub "buyer's remorse" in these sneaker fans' faces and their empty wallets (except the sneaker pimps).
