Nike shows its ‘Pride’ with LGBT collection

Bobby Rae June 7, 2016

Nike has showed just how much it loves the LGBT community by creating a line – just for us.

The BETRUE range features footwear and clothes designed to pay tribute to the community through the subtle use of triangles and the colours of the pride flag.

The line will feature its first-ever set of rainbow shoes, the LunarTemp2.

In a statement, the company said: “The 2016 BETRUE collection, inspired by the LGBT community, represents this conviction and commitment, pairing two prominent symbols of pride: the rainbow flag and pink triangle.”

Some people, however, hit out at Nike’s sincerity and criticised the fact that it still produced most of its goods in countries that actively suppressed LGBT rights.

A number of other US companies have also been launching a Pride range, including American Apparel, who used theirs to attack Donald Trump.

Check out some of the collection below:
