Yesterday we got our first look at the Nike Air Force 1 “Black History Month”, which many of you expressed a lot of interest in and set hopes of being able to add a pair to your collection. While Nike still hasn’t provided an official release date for the sneakers, some new images have surfaced, giving us another look at this detail-heavy shoes as we wait for a release confirmation. The predominantly black upper of this year’s Black History Month Air Force 1 is a nod to the past, because in the early years of the basketball, shoes on the court were almost always black. The highlights of gold throughout the upper, which is constructed from Stetson leather and features a woodblock cut print by African American artist Hele Woodruff, is a reminder of the golden moment we all are striving to achieve in our lives. Further details include a custom tongue tag with the roman numeral XXXV printed on it (35th Anniversary of Black History Month) and the letters “BHM” embroidered across the heel.
Enjoy the additional photos and stay tuned for further details on an official release date.
