Nike have stood up once again to show their support for the LGBTQ+ community with a new sneaker collection.
Running off the back of their recent ‘Equality’ campaign, Nike are set to release their ‘Betrue’ sneakers this June.
The collection contains four sneakers, three t-shirts and socks all baring the rainbow symbol as well as other pro-LGBTQ+ symbols.
“The key for us was to create something that people could unite around to show their support for [LGBTQ+} athletes,” Robert Goman, LBGT Network Leader at Nike, said in a statement.
“Sporting your rainbow in the gym or on a run became a way to feel like you belonged to something larger – you were connected to being ‘out’ or being an ally. The rainbow has and always will be incorporated into the Betrue product in some way.”
The collection includes the NikeLab Air VaporMax Betrue, with it’s soles sporting the eight colours of the original 1978 pride flag; the Nike Flyknit Racer Betrue, with the eight colours of the flag on the Nike swoosh logo; the Nike Classic Cortez Betrue; the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34 Betrue and a few t-shirts and socks.
The 2017 Betrue collection drops 1 June.
