Nike is honoring the African American history makers of America with the new Nike Black History Month pack. The pack comes with four pairs of shoes honoring three players: Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan and Julius Irving (aka Dr. J.).

Every shoe in the Nike Black History Month pack is all black, a throwback to the days when almost all shoes worn on the court were colorless. Each shoe in the pack also features a woodblock print in the upper panels from artist Hele Woodruff.
