Florida A&M University Athletics announces a six-year partnership with NIKE, Inc. to make Nike its official athletic footwear, apparel, and equipment provider. Beginning July 1, 2021, Nike will supply Florida A&M Athletics with footwear, uniforms, and apparel, extending a relationship that began more than 20 years ago.

The FAMU men’s and women’s basketball teams will be outfitted in LeBron James’ signature-branded uniforms, apparel, and footwear, including colorways designed specifically for the university.

“Nike has long supported Florida A&M Athletics, and I’m committed to lifting up HBCU’s, so I was happy I rocked a pair of the PEs in-game and showcased a piece of what’s to come for the men’s and women’s basketball programs,” says James about the shoes he wore during his March 2 home game.

Inspired by the family nature of Florida A&M Athletics’s homecoming games, the LeBron 18 PE “FAMU” insoles include the FAMU Rattler mascot and LeBron James’s signature and FAMUly graphics. The colorful Light Green and Orange pattern is a modern interpretation of the rich history and heritage of family quilts.

The partnership expands Nike’s focus in deepening its relationships with HBCUs, working together with schools that share a long legacy in developing the next generation of global changemakers. NIKE, Inc. will also support Florida A&M Athletics’ student-athlete development programs, offer internships, and coordinate networking opportunities for Florida A&M students.
