Nike is set to celebrate Black History Month with a collection of footwear and apparel designed under the theme of sport royalty, paying tribute the Swoosh’s kings and queens of sports. No surprise here that King James is represented with a special edition LeBron 11, dressed in a regal black and purple color scheme accented with hits of gold. Look for the 2014 BHM Collection to debut during pro basketball’s MLK Day games on January 20th, followed by a retail release through select Nike retailers and online starting February 1st. One hundred percent of the net proceeds generated by the 2014 BHM Collection during the month of February will go to the new NIKE Ever Higher Fund.
Release Date: February 1, 2014 (Saturday)
