Nike Kd Vi (Black History Month)
We continue to roll out Nike's BHM collection, which includes apparel and a stack of new sneaks. The pride and joy of the range is definitely the basketball silhouettes, and this KD VI is a definite conversation starter. It's all Barney the Purple Dinosaur downstairs, with blackened patterns all over making it look like the wallpaper at your grandmother's house, if your grandmother was the Queen. The 'Sport Royalty' vibes that Nike says inspired the collection are definitely strong in this one, with glittering gold Swoosh and heel KD branding inviting the aristocracy to the banquet table. One hundred percent of net proceeds (up to $1 million) generated by the 2014 BHM Collection during February will go to the new Nike Ever Higher Fund, which ‘will support charitable initiatives that leverage the power of sport to maximize the human potential of underserved youth’. The 2014 BHM Collection will debut with promotional product during pro basketball’s Martin Luther King Day games on January 20. The full 2014 BHM Collection will be available worldwide on Nike.com and at select global retail locations beginning February 1.
