Black History Month Air Force Ones

I think this is MAD HOT!!! Kudos to Nike for doing this, which is long time pass do since most of their customers are African America. This is the spill on the shoe.

"Nike has always made an effort to recognize Black History Month, and this years effort stands head and shoulders above the previous years. This Nike Air Force 1 Low Premium “Black History Month” is the men’s version and is not short of detail or the representation of heritage. For the release of this rare gem, Nike held a special Black History Month Celebration in Harlem, NYC just two weeks ago. There were step groups and break-dance crews flexing their skills on stage. The event was full of symbolism and artifacts representative of this very special time of year. Among the adornments were glass cases showcasing all 4 series of the Black History Month Shoes. For those who don’t recall there was first an all white AF1 with a double swoosh and African American Flag embroidered at the heel, then there was the AF1 Low Woven Black History Month, and last year saw the Underground Railroad AM90. This year Nike went back to the AF1 Low and treated both men and women.

The details are amazing as you will see in the following images. The packaging alone lets you know that these sneakers are not just rare, but gifts from Nike to those individuals who have embodied the spirit of “Giving Back” to their communities. These masterpieces are well thought out and accurately represent the theme at hand: African American history and its origin of culture. The canvas tells a tale of ancient artisans who used the surrounding earth and resources to clothe the community in a garb that carried with it generations of tradition and pride. Mud cloth was used to identify significant moments in an African’s life such as birth, marriage, or death. Like real mud cloth, the canvas used on these AF1’s is unique to each sneaker it adorns. Other elements that Nike used are rich premium earth colored leather and wooden accents. The leather of the vamps and toe box are laser etched with symbols used on mud cloth decorations. The sock liner is also laser etched with inspirational words from Dr. Carter G. Woodson. Wooden lace tips and dubrae round out the awe inspiring details used on these ultra limited editions."
