To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the iconic baseball player, Jackie Robinson, who was African American in the MLB when he started at first base for the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947, sneaker lovers get a special edition Nike Dunk Low.
Taking on Dodgers-inspired color blocking, the sneaker boasts #42 on the heels and the quote, “I’m not concerned with your liking or disliking me. All I ask is that you respect me as a human being” on the insoles. Furthermore, a special 75th anniversary insignia can be seen on the tongues, which are further accentuated by baseball-stitched laces. A white midsole and black rubber sole round out the shoe.
Slated to drop later this month, the Nike Dunk Low “Jackie Robinson” will be available via Nike and partnering retailers.
Elsewhere in music, the Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN “Geode” is finally set to see a wider release in April.
