Nike has always made an effort to shine the spotlight on Black History Month with drops like last years Black History Month Pack. This year the tradition continues with the help of Serena Williams who is set to help Nike release A C72 bag, Destroyer jacket, Seasonal knit jacket, and a pair of the Air Max Mirabella 3 all in honor of the month. Check what Nike had to say about it below and look out for more Black History Month drops soon.
NIKE celebrates the 36th anniversary of Black History Month with a collection created exclusively for Nike Tennis star Serena Williams.
Inspired by the achievements and pioneering spirit of three important teams: 1996 USA Basketball Women’s team, 2002 Brazil Men’s Soccer team, and the 2008 Kenyan Long-Distance running team, these teams answered the call to greatness and their legacy will continue to uplift and inspire their communities today.
NIKE designers selected signature apparel and footwear silhouettes from Nike’s Design heritage and developed a unique pattern reflective of the vibrant colors and spirit of their distinct cultures. This year’s NIKE Black History Month 2012 Collection will feature this pattern throughout a collection of NIKE products that will be worn by various NIKE athletes during the month of February.
This NIKE Black History Month 2012 pattern will first come to life at the kick-start of the tennis season in Melbourne, Australia with tennis luminary Serena Williams.
The NIKE Black History Month 2012 Collection for Williams includes The Nike Sportswear BHM Destroyer Jacket, the Nike BHM Seasonal Knit jacket, the Nike BHM C72 Bag, and the Nike BHM Air Max Mirabella 3, all bearing the BHM mark to signify this special collection.
