To honor Black History Month, shoe empire Nike will be releasing a collection for February that does more than just make your feet look stylish. The 2015 Black History Month collection will feature special addition apparel and shoes including versions of LeBron 12s, KD7s, Kobe 9 Elites, Air Jordan XX9s, and more.
They will be selling products for basketball, football, running, soccer and skateboarding that honor athletes and coaches who have positively impacted these sports with their courage and determination, including Theotis Beasley, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Jerry Rice, Brianna Rollins, C. Vivian Stringer and John Thompson.
Not only will your purchase be the perfect addition to your already highly impressive Nike collection, but a portion of the proceeds will also go to the Ever Higher Fund, which supports organizations that leverage the power of sport to maximize the potential of underserved youth.
The company said in a statement, “Sport is an incredible platform to inspire and encourage positive social change. Our 2015 Black History Month Collection honors and celebrates the athletes and leaders who have influenced global culture and have paved the way for our next generation.”
To highlight a few items, the LeBron 12 is a black/white-metallic silver color with metallic silver laces and a white Nike logo. The stylish blue translucent outsole is the icing on the cake and will retail for $220. Nike will also release this edition in grade school sizes for $165.
The KD 7 features a unique pattern on the Nike Swoosh logo. The "BHM" logo is on the tongue and the shoe is finished with a translucent blue outsole. It retails for $170 and $120 for grade school sizes.
