Jordan Brand is celebrating the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. with a collection of player exclusive sneakers. During today's MLK Jr. Day games, Jordan Brand athletes will be hitting the court in all-black sneakers.

Included in the collection are the Air Jordan 31, Air Jordan Melo M13, Air Jordan CP.X, Air Jordan Super.Fly 5 PO, and the Air Jordan Extra.Fly. The black colorway stands for what Dr. King stood for — principles of equality among all.

In addition to the sneakers, Jordan Brand also released the RE2PECT "MLK" t-shirt for men and women on Nike Store.

Unfortunately the Air Jordan "MLK" PE Collection will remain exclusive to Jordan Brand athletes and will not be for sale, so check out the likes of Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, Joe Johnson, Carmleo Anthony and more to see them on court.
