The Nike Zoom KD IV train keeps moving forward at insane speeds thanks to the high-octane releases that have hit retailers in just a two-month span. Dropping this Saturday is yet another KD IV instant hit – the Nike Zoom KD IV ‘BHM’; as part of the 2012 Black History Month collection, this heritage-inspired colorway features a unique detailing on the inner lining, Adaptive Fit strap, and the outsole, revealed through the translucent bottom. Throwing the ‘BHM’ into the mix will only make the KD IV one of the most sneakerhead-friendly kicks ever (great ‘collect-able’ nature, generous price-point), and what’s scary is that there’s still a ton of gas left in the tank! Watch for these to hit Nike Basketball retailers this Saturday, or grab a pair now from overseas seller limitedshoes on eBay.

For several years now, Nike has honored Black History Month with special sneaker releases, this year’s pack so substantial that it stretched across Nike, Inc. brand lines to include classic Converses and Air Jordans. It remains to be seen if we’ll see another BHM Air Jordan Retro, but the list from Nike’s Basketball and Sportswear divisions is starting to shape up now that we know at least six of the models confirmed for a February release. On the cutting edge, we’ll be seeing the Nike LeBron 9, Zoom Kobe VII and Zoom KD IV in BHM attire — the first time all three of Nike Basketball’s signatures will come together in black and gold. The first BHM LeBrons are joined on the Sportswear side of things by the Air Force 1 Low we’ve come to expect each year, plus the Air Max 1 and Blazer Mid. Let us know which one you’d most like to see in black and gold and stick with Sneaker News for updates including images of each pair and their release dates. via HC.
