Nike Air Force One Black History Month

Black History Month - Air Force One

(as seen on via

The NAACP is 100 years old this year. Well, that is something I did not know. For one thing, the fact that 100 years sago, with so much racistm and steroetypes about black people, I am surprised that an organization could have started and sustained itself from 1909 to 2009.

But back to the sneakers… I love the way this look. They are pretty well organized color wise. i wish they were not limited because i think everyone should get a chance to buy them if they wanted to… I supposse they can be limited but not 100 sneaker limited. More like Air Jordan 23 white and red limited.

One thing though: I sort of wish this was a pack. One in the traditional African colorway and one in the good ole red, white and blue. I mean seriously, after everything we have all (and I mean all of us) have been through and as much as we have to go through from here, can we all except that we are now all Americans? My God, we have a black president. The first family is black. Can’t Black History Month be red white and blue too?

  1. The content provided is interesting and I just wanted to add a little more on this as this information may help others looking out for some comfortable sports footwear.

    Since I follow a daily exercise regime, I give a lot of importance to the shoes I select. I guess some advice on things to look at while buying shoes may help save one from the wrong choice of shoes they end up with while trying to blend style with comfort.

    I would advice that its important to not only go with the style of the shoe but also look at the comfort factor. In the short term your shoes may be the best looking but if you end up with a back pain due to a wrong choice based on looks, then surely you are inviting trouble.

    A short and sweet advice would be to buy shoes that are not too tight or too loose and that they are exclusively meant for the sport you plan to use it for. This will prevent any injury to your body and also solve back pain problems.

  2. As long as you like shoes, you won’t miss the opportunity to be the first guy to possess it. Take a look inside your pocket money, it is worth you to buy it. Shoe styles are constantly updated, We must possess it as soon as possible.
