Nike Drops Black History Month Shoe Collection

Nike Drops Black History Month Shoe Collection

Nike-BHM-2016-Eastbay

On January 18, Nike is releasing some Black History Month-themed signature shoes from the game’s best athletes. I’m going to break down each shoe from this powerful ‘Black History Month’ pack.

Kyrie 2

The wildly popular Kyrie 2 has been changing the game — seriously. And the most dynamic point guard in the game just got another unique colorway for his new shoe. Fit your feet in festive African colors, and light up the game in traditional African style with the Nike Kyrie 2 ‘BHM’ on Monday.

LeBron 13

In the wide circle of sneakerheads, the LeBron 13 is widely hyped or widely disliked. While the naysayers like the overall thought and design put into the shoe, they believe the colors aren’t bright enough. However, people in favor of this colorway say it’s a unique twist on tradition, and shouldn’t be knocked for staying true to African culture. After all, it is a Black History Month shoe. What’s your opinion? Let us know in the comments below.

Kobe 11

For the flashiest take on Nike’s ‘BHM’ offerings, look no further than the Kobe 11s. With a bright blue toe that morphs into a multicolor design as it reaches the heel and white midsole and Swoosh for contrast, these shoes stand out and leave a message.

KD 8

KD’s take on Black History Month is a bold one — dark on top, and bright on the bottom. Traditional African tribal colors are placed on the swoosh, shoestrings, and outer tongue. The midsole is white with a colorful egg speckled print, the air sole unit is clear blue, and the sole is icy translucent rubber.
Remember, all of the shoes will be available January 18 at 10 am ET. The Kobe 11s are available in Men’s sizes only, but the other three are offered in Kid’s sizes. Which of these signature shoes in the Black History Month pack will most likely be added to your collection? Let us know below.
