After a leaked teaser of the collection's VaporMax Plus style earlier this month, Nike has unveiled its full "Be True" 2018 lineup. 

The annual celebratory LGBTQ Pride collection sticks with some of the themes we've seen before, but puts an emphasis on lavender shades and the pink triangle, two hallmarks of the community. This year's lineup includes the Air Max 270, Epic React Flyknit, VaporMax Plus, and Zoom Fly models.

The collection's Air Max 270 will be the most limited iteration of the new model yet—aside from the HQ collaboration given away to winners of Air Max Day's trivia contest. The "Be True" Air Max 270 uses a dyed Air bag with six rainbow colors beneath an otherwise simple white and black-based upper.

The Epic React takes the most reserved approach of all the styles in this group, opting for a black Flyknit upper with "Pulse Pink" outsole segments and a prominent pink triangle on the heel.

The previously-previewed VaporMax Plus is far and away the most eye-catching of the bunch, with a gradient upper that fades from pink to purple. Like the Air Max 270, the VaporMax Plus features a dyed multicolor air bag.

Rounding out the group is the Zoom Fly. The performance runner turned streetwear favorite seems subtle at first glance, but take a closer look and you'll notice muted rainbow coloring throughout the upper and midsole.

The full 2018 "Be True" collection launches Wednesday, June 6 from and select retailers worldwide.
