adidas celebrates track and field star Jesse Owens with its 2016 Black History Month footwear collection. Owens, who broke three world records and tied a fourth at the 1935 Big Ten Championships, would go on to become an American icon just a year later at the Berlin summer games by capturing four gold medals in a single competition, the first track and field athlete to achieve such a feat.

adidas has recognized his accomplishments by teaming up with the Owens estate on commemorative basketball shoes to be worn by James Harden, Damian Lillard and Derrick Rose, among others, during the Martin Luther King Jr. Day games.

Each model features cream tones, with dark brown contrasts, gold accents and signature details, including Owens’ 733 bib number in gold foil on the tongue and a 1936 graphic print in the sockliner.

Look for the shoes to be released on adidas.com in the near future.
