As part of Jordan Brand's celebration of Martin Luther King Day and Black History Month, Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin wore a special colorway of the Jordan Super.Fly 2 on Monday afternoon against the Detroit Pistons. The perennial all-star scored 25 points and grabbed 5 rebounds in a win, giving them a much-needed boost after being blown out by the Indiana Pacers in their previous contest.

Griffin's Super.Fly 2 features a black upper with royal purple and gold accents on lining and midsole along with a translucent outsole. Griffin's special "BG" logo is also stitched in gold on the tongue of the shoe.

For this year's Black History Month collection, Jordan Brand and Nike was designed under a theme they are calling "Sport Royalty" that will be featured in all of the shoes. The primary characteristics of the shoes include a mixture of royal purple and gold to signify the pinnacles that Nike's athletes have achieved in their individual sports. Along with Griffin, among the other Nike stars that received special colorways of their signature shoes include LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony.

Jordan Brand's Black History collection will be available for purchase on February 1 with net proceeds will go to the new NIKE Ever Higher Fund. While Anthony's Jordan Melo M10 "BHM" colorway will be available for purchase, Griffin's Jordan Super.Fly 2 will remain a player exclusive.
