Nike BHM Collection (Nike LeBron 11 BHM & Nike KD VI BHM)
To honor Black History Month, Nike creates a BHM Collection spanning over a number of different lifestyle products and shedding light on the fact that athletes worldwide representing the Swoosh have been inspired by a legacy of Pan-African achievement. The 2014 BHM Collection is designed with the theme of “Sport Royalty,” to honor Nike’s kings and queens of sport on their roster.
The focus on this post, however, is the Nike LeBron 11 BHM and Nike KD VI BHM. This is fourth straight year in which Kevin Durant’s and LeBron James’ respective signature sneaker lines have received a “Black History Month” treatment. The KD VI features a printed glossy purple and black base with a popping gold Swoosh and KD name tag. Its shimmering laces, speckled midsole and “BHM” tongue jewel definitely follow along with the “Sport Royalty” theme. The LeBron 11 are subdued in a bold black base, along with spotted and geometric prints adorn the upper, accented by metallic gold branding.
