This special Chuck 70 celebrates the legacy of Nat Sweetwater Clifton, who became the first African America player to sign a contract with an NBA team when he signed with the New York Knicks in the summer of 1950. The sneaker pays homage to Clifton, including references to his life, his career, and basketball in the 1950s. It is also the first time another name has ever replaced Chuck Taylors on the sneakers license plate.
