Nike Basketball BHM 2016 Collection
Nike Basketball is getting ready to celebrate Black History Month with a four piece collection of its signature series that includes the KD 8, Kobe XI, LeBron 13 and KYRIE 2. Each silhouette has its own unique style but all of them feature a general theme, which Nike describes as, “Pan African-inspired color palette, with custom geometric motifs”.
Besides offering up some fresh looks for Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to wear on court, the collection has a purpose:
The Black History Month collection honors and celebrates Black heritage, in sport and beyond, around the world while also providing financial support to Nike’s Ever Higher Fund, which was created to bring mentorship, sport and all of its benefits to African American youth.
Nike.com Europe reports that the KYRIE 2 BHM and Kobe XI BHM will release on the 18th of January. The LeBron 13 BHM will then release on the 23rd of January.
