Nike is set to release a pack of sneakers dedicated to the “Colored Cyclone” Marshall W. “Major” Taylor. In the late 1800s/early 1900s, Major Taylor took the Cycling World by storm for two reasons, one, his amazing showstopping/race winning talent, and two, the color of his skin. In a world suffocated by the Crow Laws, Major Taylor courageously battled through racism to become one of the Cycling’s greatest athletes, and, one of the wealthiest Black men of his era. To celebrate his contribution to the sport of Cycling, Nike is set to relese the Dunk High “Major Taylor”. The “Major Taylor” Dunk Highs feature a tonal Brown Leather/Mesh upper (Medium Brown/Light Brown) with a bright Neon Yellow color pop on the Swoosh. The upper sits on a semi-transluscent midsole and a Brown outsole. The “Major Taylor” Nike Dunk Higs, and the rest of the Major Taylor Pack, will hit select Nike accounts and select large chain retailers very soon, if not already.
