Nike has revealed its annual Black History Month collection, and it’s substantially fresh. The 2016 BHM drop features kicks and apparel from Nike Basketball, Lifestyle, Tennis, Jordan Brand and more.
In total there are 28 pieces draped in a “Pan African-inspired color palette.”
The collection kicks off with Basketball footwear releases including the LEBRON 13, KD8, KYRIE 2 and the KOBE 11. Signature models from Lebron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant will also be offered in youth sizes. Other category launches include: Air Force 1, Nike Air Footscape Magista and Nike Roshe One (including an additional BHM-themed Roshe One Nike iD offering) from Nike Sportswear; NikeCourt Flare footwear from Tennis; Streak LT 3 footwear from Running; and the Air Jordan 1 Nouveau and AJ1 High for girls from Jordan Brand. A BHM-themed Magista Obra FG boot and Jordan Spike 40 follow in February. BHM apparel comprises hoodies, T-shirts and shorts.
The Black History Month collection honors and celebrates Black heritage, in sport and beyond, around the world while also providing financial support to Nike’s Ever Higher Fund, which was created to bring mentorship, sport and all of its benefits to African American youth.
The BHM Collection will be available at nike.com and the usual retail locations starting Jan. 18.
