A Look Inside

Instead of paraphrasing, I’ll insert the statement from Nike here:

“The definition of team is expressed in many forms.
Even when we’re on our own, we’re still together. United. Unstoppable.
We’ve thrived in the face of struggle. Prevailing on the strength of our teamwork.
Reclaiming our spaces and setting an example for the world to follow.

Arriving 6.19, the BeTrue 2020 collection captures this vision and marks the next step in our individual and
collective journeys, anchored by two Nike icons from past to present — the Air Force 1 and the Air Max 2090;
completed by the Nike ACG Air Deschutz, the BeTrue 2020 collection reminds us that sport
means something different to everyone and we each play a part in keeping it alive.

Together these pieces paint a picture of a community recognizing its inner strength, leading
the way forward and standing together to make a future where we can all BeTrue.

Until We All Win.”

Nike has unveiled the Air Force 1 that will be part of its “Be True” pack this year. The Nike “Be True” pack is the sportswear company’s offering of LGBTQ Pride-themed sneakers and apparel, all of which feature the 10-color LGBTQ rainbow flag. The classic, triple white Nike Air Force 1 is given a luxe, pebbled leather update with LGBTQ-themed detailing on the heel tab, midsole, and tongue. The rainbow detailing is an unmistakable nod in support of marginalized voices in our society. Tailored perforations and gimping add another touch of luxury to an otherwise classic design. Here are the official images.

Involvement with Pride & Past Success

Nike has been taking part in celebrating LGBTQ pride in the month of June for a number of years now, which is fabulous. We love the initiative to stay involved and support a population. On the website Nike states that they’ve been partnering with the LGBTQ community for 15 years now. The collections have really heated up just in the past few if you ask me.

Here are some blasts from the past.

Resale Anticipation

As mentioned above, this year’s BeTrue collection is somewhat small. The Air Force 1 is only to be accompanied by the Air Max 2090 and the ACG Air Deschutz (a sandal). Contrary to past years, there’s a clear and obvious favorite in the group and that’s the AF1.

All that said, we would estimate these viable for a quick flip option. Being that the AF1 is such a versatile and beloved shoe, we believe there’d be reasonable hype around it. While in some years, BeTrue sneakers have even gone on sale, we can’t imagine these would follow that trend.
