Nike has always been one for celebrating Black History Month, and now in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day specifically, Jordan Brand is paying tribute to the revolutionary with a set of player exclusive kicks for the NBA court.

Dubbed the “MLK Day PE,” the full range includes blacked-out versions of the AJXXXI, CP3.X, Extra.Fly, M13 and Super.Fly 5 PO. Off the court, Jordan Brand will also be honoring MLK Day with a special RE2PECT tee. The men’s and women’s shirts will be offered in black and white versions with gold lettering and include the quote “The Time is Always Ripe to Do Right” on the back, an excerpt from Dr. King’s widely publicized open letter written on April 16, 1963.

The PE sneakers will not be for sale, but for those interested in the shirts, expect them to release soon over at Jordan Brand’s official site and select Jordan retail stores.
