Previous BHM releases

Professional athletes love the BHM collections and it’s not a surprise that they are proud to represent them on the playing field and the NBA hardwood. Basketball being dominated by black athletes (with notable exceptions, of course) is on display in the media every day and therefore a perfect stage to support the cause of the Black History Month. And we also can’t deny that they just look great and put some players’ swag to a new level.  Here are some examples of BHM shoes worn on court.
