Nike‘s annual “Be True” Pride collection revolves round a certain theme . In 2020 it was the “More Color, More Pride” flag designed by artist/activist Amber Hikes, while in 2019 it was about rainbow hues of Gilbert Baker’s original Pride flag. Back to the future in 2021, Nike Sportswear is expanding its flag inspiration to a range of four-shoes, each pair of which is accompanied by nine unique flag patches.
The pack varies in silhouettes from casual classics to high end performance shoes: there’s the Blazer Low, the Air Max Pre-Day, the React Infinity Run 2 and the All Out Utility Slide. The upper of the low-cut Blazer is made of white leather , a rainbow-stitched Swoosh, a special tag on its exposed foam tongue, a heel tab that holds its interchangeable patches and a bubblegum pink midsole. The Air Max Pre-Day features bold blue base with a gradient rainbow Swoosh, a Pride tongue tag, a cored-out midsole that shows the heel Air unit in full and, much like the Blazer, a space for patches on its heel. The React Infinity Run 2 possesses an upper with black and multicolor detailing, the latter of which resembles the 2017’s Flyknit Racer “Be True.” Outlined Swooshes carry multicolor gradient and customizable heel tabs are . The All Out Utility Slide is composed of a pink strap with a zipper pouch for storage, a unique pattern on its outsole and a Velcro strip on its front that enables the wearer to change flag patches as they see fit. There’s even a full collection of apparel ranging from tees to hoodies and trail shorts.
The 2021 Nike “Be True” collection to will be releasing on the Nike webstore on the 15th of June.
