Michael Vick's legal troubles prompted Nike to suspend the release of its latest product line named after the Atlanta Falcons quarterback.
Nike said yesterday it would not release a fifth signature shoe, the Air Zoom Vick V, this summer.
Nike spokesman Dean Stoyer said the four shoe products and three shirts that currently bear Vick's name would remain in stores.
Vick will be arraigned next week in a Richmond, Va., federal courtroom on charges of sponsoring an illegal dogfighting operation.
