Nike gets inclusive: The new BETRUE 2019 collection

Nike Betrue sneaker

As we approach the half way point of 2019, NIKE has joined the fold, becoming more inclusive than ever before and turning out a new collection that’s all about inclusivity. The Nike BETRUE 2019 collection pays homage to activist Gilbert Baker and his iconic rainbow flag design that 40 years later remains a worldwide symbol for the LGBTQIA community. For the first time, the footwear, apparel and accessories all feature the icon’s original eight-colour flag, a timely homage in this era of diversity and acceptance, that no one is alone. It also celebrates the fact that Baker handmade everything he designed. Nike designers gave each shoe a hand-crafted effect by embroidering symbols including the eight-layer Swoosh on the Nike Air Max 90 BETRUE and the rainbow flag on the Tailwind 79.
