With February so near, it should not come as a surprise that Nike is ready to celebrate Black History Month with their annual collection and Jordan Brand have also made their contribution to it. While hats, hoodies, shorts and T-shirts are included as well, the highlight of the collection is the footwear that comes dressed up in 2016’s unique BHM pattern. The collection already includes a Spike 40 and two versions of the Air Jordan 1, a High GS exclusive iteration and a High Nouveau rendition, both of which appear to be quite similar. However, Nike’s BHM Collection will also mark the 2016 Jordan releases of a premium Westbrook 0 too.
Apart from the apparel and Jordan Brand’s sneakers, this year’s Black History Month Collection also includes iterations of Nike’s Air Force 1, Air Footscape Magista, Air Roshe One, KD8, Kobe 11, Kyrie 2, Lebron 13, Magista Obra FG, NikeCourt Flare, and the Streak LT 3. This probably makes it quite obvious that the 2016 BHM Collection is going to be quite large so Jordanheads are going to have their hands full deciding which of these kicks to cop.
This year’s BHM sneakers will be dressed up in a color scheme that is being described as “Pan African-inspired” and a wide range of geometric patterns will appear on them, although this is not the case with the premium Air Jordan Westbrook 0 “BHM.” While the premium leather upper of this Westbrook 0 iteration is dressed up entirely in Black like others, it looks far more luxurious because of the ostrich texture that is featured throughout instead of the colorful BHM pattern. The eyelets and the lace dubrae are covered in metallic gold, while it is equipped with a translucent icy blue outsole.
Of course, the Jordan release 2016 of Nike’s entire 2016 Black History Month Collection will not take place at the same time. Nonetheless, Jordan Brand has confirmed that the premium Air Jordan Westbrook 0 “BHM” will hit the shelves on January 16th and 2016 BHM pattern will soon pop up for use on NIKEiD too.
