Nike Introduces 2012 Black History Month Collection
To celebrate the 36th anniversary of Black History Month, Nike is bringing you a limited-edition collection of footwear and apparel…
The collection celebrates the achievements and pioneering spirit of three important teams: 1996 USA Basketball Women’s team, 2002 Brazil Men’s Soccer team, and the 2008 Kenyan Long-Distance running team.
Nike designers developed a signature graphic print and distinct colors that are featured on the shoes. This motif is inspired by the vibrant colors of International African culture, drawing visual cues from Kenyan beads, to the Brazilian Carnivale, to African-American quilt making which originated in the southern United States.
The footwear collection includes the Nike Zoom KD IV, Nike Kobe VII System Supreme and LEBRON 9. Nike Sportswear shoes include the Nike Air Force 1, Nike Air Max 1, Nike Blazer and 2012 Nike Huarache Free:
Other featured clothing in the collection include the Nike Destroyer Jacket, T-shirt and Snapback:
The Nike Black History Month Collection will be available at select retailers this month and at NikeStore.com beginning February 11th.
