Air Jordan 1 Black Lives Matter

Air Jordan 1s Signal Support For Black Lives Matter

Date: August 17 2017

Jordan Brand’s Frank Cooker revealed via Instagram a pair of all-black Air Jordan 1s sporting an ankle strap emblazoned with ‘#BlackLivesMatter.’ In a time of heightened tension, fear and division across America, Cooker’s message ­– accompanied by the caption ‘and so does standing up for peace, harmony, equality and justice for ALL!’ – is one of solidarity.

It’s likely the sneakers are one-offs, but even as a single pair, the Air Jordan 1s signal Nike’s support for the Black Lives Matter movement, which – put perfectly by Time magazine – has ‘blossomed from a protest cry into a genuine political force' to combat a wide spectrum of injustices.

There's no official word from Nike, but we'll let  you know if further news follows.
