The NIKE BASKETBALL 2012 Black History month Collection - Limited-edition collection celebrates 36th anniversary of Black History Month.
In celebration of the 36th anniversary of Black History Month, Nike Basketball is introducing a new, limited-edition 2012 Black History Month Collection featuring select basketball signature shoes that includes the Nike Zoom KD IV, Nike Kobe VII System Supreme and LEBRON 9 -- all feature the pattern with dark grey as the base color of each shoe. While the Nike Sportswear shoes include the Nike Air Force 1, Nike Air Max 1, Nike Blazer and 2012 Nike Huarache Free. In addition to the shoes, select apparel styles include the Nike Destroyer jacket, T-shirt and snapback hat.
NIKE designers developed a signature graphic print and distinct colors that are featured on the shoes. This motif is inspired by the vibrant colors of International African culture, drawing visual cues from Kenyan beads, to the Brazilian Carnivale, to African-American quilt making which originated in the southern United States.
In keeping with a tradition of honoring this holiday by giving back to organizations that work to inspire youth towards greatness, NIKE, Inc. will make a financial contribution to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.
The Nike Basketball and Nike Sportswear Black History Month Collection will be available at select retailers this month and at NikeStore.com beginning February 11.
