Nike to Release a Special Edition Air Max 720 for Pride Month
Each and every June, the LGBT community celebrate the challenges they’ve overcome, bring awareness to the difficulties they currently face and look to the better days ahead in the future.
And there’s one hell of a party, too.
Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements throughout the world, and Nike looks to celebrate the movement with this special edition Air Max 720. Arriving basic in its makeup, the pairs arrive anchored in a tonal metallic silver upper overlay and outsole combo, with dual pops of color arriving in blue and red, the former hitting the tongue and Swoosh branding, the latter the outsoles and interior of the 720 Air unit. But hidden away on the medial ankle is a vibrant rainbow motif — the colors reflecting the diversity of the LGBT community — complete with “AIR” letters overlayed in white. Completing the pair is a retro-styled Nike hangtag.
A release date was not attached the official images laid out below, but with Pride Month only weeks away, you can expect the drop to land on Nike.com over the coming days. Keep it locked into our Nike Release Dates page for more updates!
