You thought Jordan Brand’s Black History Month Collection for 2013 was all wrapped? Think again: Jordan Brand has teamed up with trendy designer Don C to collaborate on a pair of the Air Jordan 1 and a Jordan snapback to celebrate the 37th Anniversary of Black History Month. Don C, who is best known for his unique treatments to sporty snapback hats, gives his spin on the Air Jordan 1 by implementing a traditional graphic on the upper, using a bright orange for the inner lining, and displaying his flair for the reptilian on the ankle strap. The snapback hat shows off Don C’s signature moves with the material used on the bill of the hat. Again, just thirty seven sets (the shoes at the hat) are available and up for auction, with all proceeds going directly to the Big Brothers Big Sisters Of America charity. A full detailed gallery is below so get your bids in on what may be one of the must-haves of the year.
@Teflon Don Dis hat and Jordan is it
This is what JB's entire BHM collection should have looked like instead of the neon green/stealth theme...
so this is how ou treat the loyal people you give them shit and give the wealthy the highest quality stuff man thats bull these should have seen a wider production smh
@KGJarbo I didn't really like that but you never got why they did that? Cause I did? BHM basically showing some color instead of just being black and dull.
I agree, but it could be worse. They could be free giveaways like Beat Headphones or a Nike PE, just to get the bigger population demographic (US!), the notion to support the products. But look at it on the bright side, at least it's going to charity and a good one at that.
@Tomba89 I think it's a matter of personal preference. I like bright colors as well, but that doesn't necessarily scream "Black History Month" to me. At least on these AJ1s there are somewhat "tribal" patterns, and the use of luxe accents (i.e., python embossed leather Swoosh and strap, gold buckle, and leather lining) make these shoes pop. The volt, photo blue, 3M and the "BHM" logo used on the Spizikes, M9, and other AJ1s just didn't do it for me.
