nike legend black fives

Picked up a pair of Nike Legend limited Black Fives editions. The "Black Fives" refer to the early black basketball leagues of the early 1900's that thrived in the face of racial segregation. These particular sneakers honor the St. Christopher Club (aka The Red and Black Machine) of Harlem, NYC. A clean and classic old school design and rich maroon/black colorway provides an alternative to the multicolored kicks in my closet. Edit: Thanks to Claude for the photo clarification.

These are great, aren't they? Only want to point that this photo is not the St. Christopher Club. It's actually the Commonwealth Big Five.

I hope you're pleasantly surprised by what you see there.
