It’s that time of year again. Black History Month is right around the corner, and Nike is starting it off by dropping 28 new BHM-inspired products for the culture.
This year’s design features more than last year’s black and white colorway:
Nike’s annual Nike Black History Month collection has evolved from a single Nike Air Force 1 to an extensive product assortment that pays homage to the achievements of black athletes worldwide. The limited-edition 2016 collection, with staggered launches running from January to mid-February, features a vibrant cascade of 28 products, spanning tennis, basketball, football, running, Nike iD and Jordan Brand. Its distinctly global sensibility is reflected in a vivid Pan African-inspired color palette, with custom geometric motifs.
The BHM Collection will be available globally at nike.com and select retail locations beginning Jan. 18, but we are giving you a look at some of the 2016 Black History Month Collection right now.
This year, Nike will be dropping BHM joints for the LeBron 13, KD8, Kyrie 2, and the Kobe 11 Elite in its first releases.
You’ll also get the Air Force 1, Nike Air Footscape Magista, and Nike Roshe One, as well as more from Nike Sportswear; NikeCourt Flare footwear from Tennis, BHM apparel comprises hoodies, T-shirts, shorts and much more. The annual Black History Month Collection will support Black heritage and part of the profit goes toward Nike’s Ever Higher Fund, which was created to bring mentorship, sport, and all of its benefits to African-American youth.
