Sp16_BHM_KBryant_illustration_HR_resized_hd_800pix

In celebration of Black History Month last year Nike presented a monochrome effort, this year they’ve gone for a more vibrant approach in the form of multi-coloured geometric prints inspired by garments worn by their Pan African forefathers.

The Black History Month collection celebrates and honours Black heritage, in sport and beyond. It’s made in conjunction with and to support Nike’s Ever High Fund, “which was created to bring mentorship, sport and all of its benefits to African American youth”. Numerous American organisations benefit from this connection such as organizations that provide services to underrepresented youth, including African American youth. Long-time partners include the Jackie Robinson Foundation, Boys and Girls Clubs, National Head Start and Coach Across America.

With a common design theme throughout, they start releasing through January with the Nike Air Jordan Horizon Premium BHM coming out first on Saturday the 16th, followed by the Nike Kobe XI Elite Low BHM, the Nike Kyrie II BHM and the Nike Lebron XIII BHM on Monday the 18th and finishing up with the Nike KD 8 BHM on Saturday the 23rd.
