Nike’s annual Black History Month Collection will be releasing next month and this year will include the Nike Air VaporMax.
The Nike Air VaporMax BHM is inspired by Olympic hurdler Colin Jackson who set the world record in the 110m hurdles. The shoe features a black/grey Flyknit upper with additional black accents on the Swoosh logo and mudguard. Red and and green accents, which serve as a nod to the Pan-African flag, are then seen on the heel, insoles, and outsole. Additional features include the date “8.20.03” in gold stamped by the heel to commemorate the date Colin Jackson broke the 110m hurdles record, recording a time of 12.91 seconds. Jackson also came out as gay at the age of 50 which served as inspiration to many people around the country. BHM branding in gold on the tongue wraps up the look on this release.
Look for the Nike Air VaporMax BHM to release some time in February for a retail price of $205. Stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for updates.
