Every year Nike releases a special shoe to commemorate Black History Month. Some years the shoes have been available to the general public while others have extremely limited and only given to selected individuals. The BHM release in 2008 was just that. Its been a sought out shoe for many Air Force 1 lovers and just has exquisite detail. African mud cloth on the foxing, premium leather for the rest of the upper and liner. 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. The shoe is completed with wooden deubre’s and and lace tips. Just a beautiful shoe and proud that I am owner of a pair.
