Following a first look at the Nike VaporMax Plus “Be True” edition, Nike has officially unveiled their entire 2018 “Be True” Collection. Each shoe celebrates colors and symbols that have been reclaimed and historically repurposed by the LGBTQ community. This year’s highlights is the color Lavender and the Pink triangle.
Lavender, a dynamic blending of gender-linked Light Blue and Light Pink, is one of the oldest symbolic references in LGBTQ culture. This year’s collection includes the Nike VaporMax Plus, the Nike Air Max 270, the Nike Zoom Fly and the Nike Epic React Flyknit.
With the most advanced Nike Max Air technology yet, the Nike BETRUE Vapormax Plus features the rainbow color spectrum underfoot.
The Nike BETRUE Air Max 270 will be the most limited release of of the silhouette’s short but popular history.
The pink triangle and classic rainbow on the Nike BETRUE Zoom Fly are partly inspired by racecar decals.
The upside-down triangle used in the 1940s was flipped rightside up in the ’80s to promote a bearing of strength and solidarity – a symbol that runs strong through the Nike BETRUE Epic React Flyknit’s all-black colorway.
