Celebrating African American heritage since 2005, Nike’s ‘Black History Month’ colourways are a mainstay on the brand’s annual release calendar. For 2019, the collection strays from just the Swoosh, with Jordan Brand and Converse getting involved for even more BHM goodness than previous years.
The releases make use of an assortment of African patterns, tying with this year’s theme of Afrofuturism in sport. Headlined by the Nike LeBron 16 ‘Equality’, the collection is backed up with a Kyrie 5, PG 3, KD 11, Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 2, Jordan Why Not Zer0.2, Nike Air Force 1 Utility, Flare 2, and two Converse Chuck Taylors. Seriously, how do you pick just one?
The 2019 Nike BHM collection kicks off with the release of the LeBron 16 on January 21 on Nike.com and select retailers, with the rest of the collection dropping on February 1.
