After a slew of previews and first looks, we now feast our eyes on an official on-feet display of Nike‘s full Black History Month 2018 collection. The nine-shoe collection honors the legendary Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and inspiring black athletes both past and present, whose memorable dates in sports are marked down on their respective sneakers.

The Air Jordan 1 Retro High features Carmelo Anthony‘s PE logo on the tongue tab; the Air Force 1 Low honors MLK and his historic “I have a dream” speech; the LeBron 15 commemorates King James‘s speech on sports and equality on July 13, 2016; the Nike KD 10 salutes Kevin Durant‘s MVP speech; the Kyrie 4 doesn’t feature a date as Kyrie Irving aims to focus on the future; the Nike Mercurial Vapor XI will be worn by Kevin-Prince Boateng and Dani Alves. These models will launch on January 15.

The Nike Air Jordan 1 Flyknit honors the day Michael Jordan was rewarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom on November 22, 2016; the Air Force 1 High boasts the first-ever print design on the silhouette; the VaporMax features the date August 20, 1993, the day Gail Devers broke the IAAF record for the 100-meter run. These models will release on February 1.

Flip through the photo set above to see the Nike Black History Month collection on-feet and let us know if you’ll be picking up any of the models. For more sneaker options, check out Nike’s Air Force 1 Low in a “Black/University” paisley print variation.
