Nike recognizes Black History Month with a specifically designed collection under the mantra, “Be Bold. Be True.”
The 2013 Nike Black History Month Collection consists of seven shoes, two tees, a Destroyer jacket, Nike Elite socks and a 5-panel hat — each sportinga color palette of black, grey and brown, highlighted in orange.
The sneakers include silhouettes from Nike’s Sportswear and Basketball divisions. Sportswear BHM shoes include the Nike Lunar Force 1, Nike Air Force 1 Foamposite Hi, Nike Dunk Sky Hi and Nike Air Force 1 Downtown. Nike Basketball shoes complete the BHM collection with special versions of the KD V, LEBRON X and KOBE 8 SYSTEM; all three featuring black, grey and orange with the signature Nike BHM print.
These signature shoes will debut on court during pro basketball’s Martin Luther King Jr. tribute day on Monday (January 21).
The rest of Nike’s 2013 Black History Month Collection will debut, beginning January 26. For more info, visit Nike.com.
Will nike be donating any proceeds to BHM causes, to validate their claim?
