On Monday, Colin Kaepernick’s new shoes went on sale, as the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback had his “Air Force 1 x Colin Kaepernick” officially released. Sneakerheads got a peek at the shoes last month when he wore them to the workout he held in Atlanta.
Last year, Nike made Kaepernick the face of their “Just Do It” campaign, as it celebrated its 30thanniversary. And after selling out t-shirts and jerseys over the last year, Nike is ready to release Kaepernick’s signature shoe.
The black and white shoes are reportedly going for $110 a pair, and include an image of Kaepernick with an afro on the heel tabs, his logo, the No. 7 hang-tag, and insoles with white roses and a shattered mask. The best part of shoes are the icy-blue bottoms, which include the numbers “08 14 16,” the day he first sat during the national anthem.
On Sunday, Kaepernick announced that Shoe Palace will be donating all profits from the sale of his shoes to organizations fighting systemic oppression.
“I’ll be working with them in the coming days to select those organizations,” Kaepernick said in a video he posted on Twitter.
The shoes will also be available in North American Nike stores, at select retailers, and via the SNKRS app.
