Like most of the themes and holidays we’ve explored over the past year or so, Nike’s output for Black History Month 2012 has been its most expansive so far. The Nike Air Force 1 Low has been around the longest, and this year’s model anchors a collection that spreads its theme across four Nike Sportswear silhouettes and three more from the Basketball division. Key details include the ‘UPLIFT’-emblazoned, wildly patterned sockliner and footbed, a print duplicated on the translucent bottoms of this otherwise earthy suede design. So they’re a break from the ongoing black and gold BHM theme from years gone by, but quite strongly tied to the rest of this year’s Nike Black History Month releases; where do they stand in each category? Each pair in the set is slated for a February 11th release, and you’ll find the 2012 Black History Month Air Force 1s at select shops like Millennium Shoes.
