Nike Black History Month sneakers

Nike is gearing up to honour Black History Month this February with a brand new sneaker drop.

In the midst of Nike's slew of Chinese New Year sneaker drops, we've now had a glimpse at a sneaker commemoration of a different kind. A new line of Air Force 1s has just been revealed, with the launch set to coincide with Black History Month in February.

Release date: 19 February

Price: US$130

Where to buy: Nike SNKRS site

The kicks are arriving in a sleek black upper broken up with black mesh panelling on the sides. An almost entirely distressed toe box meanwhile gives a further textured element to the style.

Pops of bright yellow and blue appear around the laces, while the heel panel is decked out in a mint green shade. A stark white midsole and red Nike Swoosh round out the design.

The sneakers are slated to drop onto the Nike SNKRS site from 19 February. We're hoping that they will line Australian shelves shortly after, appearing at usual Nike stockists JD Sports and Platypus Shoes.

This is far from the first time that Nike has honoured the month, with the brand releasing special-edition sneaker drops every year.

In a statement on the site, Nike has said, "Equality isn't a game but achieving it will be our greatest victory. We celebrate athletes and youth leaders who are harnessing the power of sport and making a positive change in their communities."

In other Nike news, the label has also just revealed a first look at both a pair of Canary Yellow sneakers in collaboration with Off-White and a Splatter sneaker which crosses over Drake's OVO model with the Air Jordan 4s.
