Nike recognizes the importance of Black History Month with not only a product collection, but a larger recognition of the power of sports to impact society. The 2013 Nike Black History Month Collection mantra, “Be Bold. Be True” celebrates three athletes fearless in action and fueled by a purpose. Now more than ever, athletes at all levels have a unique ability to extend their voice beyond sports. Soccer superstar Didier Drogba, tennis legend Serena Williams and basketball phenom Kevin Durant provide creative inspiration for the product collection based on their commitment to giving back to their communities. Consisting of seven shoes, two T-shirts, a Destroyer jacket, Nike Elite socks, and 5-panel hat, the collection is a dual effort between Nike Sportswear lifestyle product and Nike Basketball performance product. Nike Sportswear BHM shoes include the Nike Lunar Force 1, Nike Air Force 1 Foamposite Hi, Nike Dunk Sky Hi and Nike Air Force 1 Downtown. Nike Basketball shoes complete the BHM collection with special versions of the KD V, LeBron X and KOBE 8 SYSTEM; all three featuring black, grey and orange with the signature Nike BHM print. These signature shoes will debut on court during pro basketball’s Martin Luther King, Jr. tribute day on Monday, January 21.
