Wear Rip City: Matthews And Leonard Debut Black History Month Colorways

By caseyholdahl Posted in: Blazers, Bucks, jaredjeffries, LaMarcusAldridge, meyersleonard, WesleyMatthews, Wizards

With Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday and February being just a few weeks away, Nike has released the Black History Month colorways of the Zoom Kobe 8, the Zoom KD V and the LeBron X. It's a rather dynamic colorway and sure to be one of Nike's most popular special releases this year.

But what about everyone else in the league not named Kobe, Kevin or Lebron? Well it turns out that at least two Nike Basketball shoes outside of those signature models will getting the Black History Month treatment, too. Here's the Nike Hypderdunk Black History Month (or "BHM" for short, which you can see on the tongue) colorway worn by Wesley Matthews at practice on Jan. 18.

That's a good looking shoe, especially for you Oregon State fans out there.

And here's Meyers Leonard in Nike Hyperfuse Black History Month, also worn in practice (his first practice since rolling his ankle on Dec. 29) on Jan. 18.

No word on whether these will be available to purchase. Heck, as far as I know, these are the first look at these models in this colorway. Expect to see both players, and probably a few other Trail Blazers, wearing this colorway from now throughout the end of February.

As for other shoe news from practice, LaMarcus Aldridge was wearing a new colorway of his Hyperposite PEs and Jared Jeffries wore the ever-popular black and red Jordan XIII.
