Nike footwear designer Kiki McGehee, inspired by the many faces of Hispanic culture, designed this limited edition shoe to commemorate HHM. Tip of the hat on incorporating the artisanal technique known as Piteado (embroidering onto leather in decorative patterns commonly found throughout Latin America) into the design.

The word “Pride” is displayed on the shoe to reflect the lifestyle of Hispanics living in the United States and the font used was made famous by the low rider culture of the southwest. The floral details also encourage freedom of expression. Sadly, this special edition shoe will not be available at retail. There will be a limited number of HHM T-shirts inspired by the shoe and featuring the same graphics. Look for them at select Warehouse Shoe Sale stores throughout LA.
