Nike has unveiled its full “BETRUE” collection ahead of Pride Month. The pack sees four silhouettes — the Air Max 720, Air Tailwind 79, Zoom Pegasus Turbo and Benassi JDI slide — reworked to feature the iconic rainbow flag designed by Gilbert Baker.

The Air Max 720 sees the rainbow flag added as a gradient pattern across the sneaker’s mesh upper, complete with Gilbert Baker’s signature on the 720 Air unit. The Air Tailwind 79 features the flag in a more subtle way, appearing as an eye-catching detail on the heel tab. The rest of the sneaker’s mesh upper comes in lilac-grey, complete with suede around the toeboxe, heel and eyelet panels and a black leather Swoosh.

The third sneaker in the pack, the Zoom Pegasus Turbo, comes with a primarily black upper, which is offset by a rainbow stripe which runs down the sneaker. The rainbow detailing also appears as glitter around the lacing unit and ankle. Lastly, Nike has also dressed its iconic Benassi JDI slide with the rainbow flag, covering the slide’s strap.

The Air Max 720, Air Tailwind 79 and Benassi JDI will all release via the Nike web store and select stockists including END. on June 1. The Zoom Pegasus Turbo will then follow on July 14.
