Nike Celebrates Black History Month With New Shoe Release

There is only a little over a week left in Black History, but Nike isn’t done celebrating!

The athletic company has released a 2020 Black History Month collection, “Watch Us Rise”. The campaign highlights black men and women from all over the country-including LA, Chicago and NYC who are making a difference.

Amanda Garman, one of the leaders highlighted stated: “We might look different. Our blackness might show itself both phenotypically and culturally in a wide myriad of ways, but there’s a certain commonality in what we’re willing to fight for.”

Nike is releasing three styles on the already existing Air Force 1 Low, Air Max 95, and Converse BHM Pro Leather. They will feature 90s street style and African textile inspirations.

The popular brand released its first Black History Month product in 2005with a limited Air Force 1 Edition, and because of the success, it is now a yearly effort.

Nike is also giving a total of $500,000 in grants to 20 U.S. nonprofit organizations that specialize in career development, education, and sports.

The items are available on and select retail stores now.
