Now that Nike has officially pulled back the curtain on the entirety of their silhouettes in celebration of Black History Month for 2012, we get a little bit of background on the graphic prints that run throughout all the sneakers included in the celebration. Apparently designed with three particular athletic squads in mind (the 1996 USA Basketball Women’s team, the 2002 Brazil Men’s Soccer team, and the 2008 Kenyan Long-Distance Running team), the pattern is meant to be a colorful cross between the beads of Kenya, Brazil’s bright Carnivale holiday, and the tradition of African-American quilt making from the US South. And of course along with the updated info we’re treated to some high quality images of the shoes and apparel, a set which should leave you convinced of just how nice this pack is shaping up to be. Follow us after the jump for the shots of the collection which includes models from the Nike Sportswear and Nike Basketball divisions(all of which will be available at Nikestore online), and let us know which among them you’ll be copping on the February 11th release date.
