Nike and Converse Team Up for a Black History Month Collection

Featuring the Air Force 1, Air Max 95, Chuck 70 and Pro Leather silhouettes.

With Black History Month a few weeks away, Nike and Converse have unveiled their “BHM” collection featuring the brands’ popular silhouettes including the Air Force 1, Air Max 95, Chuck 70 and the Pro Leather, representing the diversity of the African diaspora. The sneakers arrive in color-blocked panels that reflect the importance of celebrating heritage, as well as a nod to early ’90s street style.

Each pair features deconstructed and handmade finishes, highlighting the power of self-determination and self-expression. The AF1, in particular, has a set of threads hanging from its upper along with a mirrored panel on the toe box. The AM95 has been incorporated with a customizable textile patch held in place by its laces. Finally, the classic Chuck 70 and the Pro Leather silhouettes have been crafted with a natural, earth-toned color palette and material blocking.

The Swoosh brand continues to support a number of national and local organizations that provide services to the youth through mentorship, leadership development, coaching, city league sports programs and other community initiatives. Partners of Nike include MENTOR, PeacePlayers International, the Jackie Robinson Foundation and more, and also support the United Negro College Fund.

Stay tuned while we wait for the official release date of the “BHM” collection, which is expected to drop on Nike’s website and at select retailers sometime in February. In case you missed it, the Nike Foundation has announced a $5 million USD grant to support the Obama Presidential Center.
