The Nike Air Force 1 & Air Jordan 1 Share a United Vision of Equality

The Swoosh connects us all together.

By //Footwear

A couple of Nike and Jordan Brand‘s most iconic silhouettes are next up to express the Swoosh’s view on equality. This month will see special editions of Nike’s Air Force 1 and the Air Jordan 1 with black and white contrasting colors.

The Air Force 1 Low is dressed in all-black with premium leather. Its “EQUALITY” stamp is placed on the heel of the midsole in white. Inside the tongue is an homage to Martin Luther King Jr. with a March 28, 1968 date stamp referencing his last-ever march. Moving onto the Air Jordan 1, black and white color-blocking splits the model in half for an eye-catching look. Similar to the Air Force 1, its “EQUALITY” calling is found on the heel in black lettering.

The “EQUALITY” editions of the Nike Air Force 1 and Air Jordan 1 are expected to drop on January 15, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, at select retailers. Take a look at the imagery above and let us know which one you favor.
