In early March, we were gifted with a first look at Nike’s “Be True” Flyknit Racer, just one part of a larger collection set out to support the LGBTQ community. What started out in 2012 as a grassroots effort led by passionate Nike employees to connect with the LGBTQ community, has been met with great success since its inception. Along with the Flyknit Racer, this year’s collection also houses a Air VaporMax, Air Zoom Pegasus 34 and a Classic Cortez silhouette. A range of tees, tanks and socks can also be found in the capsule, all bearing a vibrant rainbow and other prominent symbols of Pride, including the color pink and the triangle.
This year’s collection marks the first eight-color, HD rainbow Swoosh design — on the Nike Flyknit Racer — and the first rainbow VaporMax Air unit — on the NikeLab Air VaporMax Flyknit. It is also the first time the “Be True” collection will be available in key cities globally. Check out the colorful collection above and expect an official release at Nike’s official website and select retailers on June 1.
