A couple weeks ago the masses caught their very first look at the 2010 Black History Month Air Force Ones when Ernie Johnson and the NBA on TNT commentators unveiled the sneakers on live TV. Viewers instantly flocked to the web to find more details about the sneakers and as many suspected once they got a closer look at the detailing of the AF1’s they became another must have. Seen throughout the rich black leather upper, which is accented with green and red, are the words; “The definition of a renaissance individual: one who possesses a multitude of skills, talent and a broad base of knowledge.” Additional details consist of a silhouette featuring a man and woman on the hang tag and insoles, a pair of lace tags with “BHM 2010” printed on them and “Black History Month 2010” printed on the tongue tag of the shoes.
The sneakers are expected to start hitting retailers on February 18th, 2010, and needless to say they’ll be limited. We aren’t quite sure how many pairs have been produced in total but we do know there will only be 20 retailers worldwide distributing the sneakers. One such retailer is Vault in Harlem, NY who’s currently taking Pre-Orders. A limited run of sizes 8-13 will be available so if you’re interested in copping a pair hit up Vault now and get your name on the list for a pair in your size. If they’ll all out in your size we included a list of all 20 distributors who will have the sneakers, you may want to try hitting some of them up and see if they can do you in for a pair.
