Nike unveiled its Black History Month collection on Wednesday, featuring three signature basketball shoes in black, white and gold designs with new colorways of the LeBron 14, Kyrie 3 and KD 9.
The limited edition 2017 collection incorporates a decorative marbling — blending black and white — in reference to the strength of harmonious movement. Each design in the collection is also punctuated by gold accents, reminders of the power of coming together and the aspiration of unity.
Along with the trio of basketball shoes, Nike and Jordan Brand also have a number of other casual and performance shoes that will feature the Black History Month patterns. Among those are two new Jordan 1 designs, one in men’s (black with gold) and one in kids’ (gold with black), as well as an Air Force 1 Hi and an Air Force 1 Upstep for women in the collection. I am personally partial to the men’s Jordan 1 and the Kyrie 3 designs.
Along with the Jordan 1 and Air Force 1 options, Nike also will release Black History Month designs of the Serena Williams’ Nike Flare, Nike Lunar Epic and Jordan Trunner.The collection also features “Equality.” t-shirts as well as an MVP jacket and pant.
The entire Nike collection will be available at retailers on Feb. 16, with the Jordan shoes being released on Feb. 11.
