Tina Charles previews special edition Black History Month sneakers

Black History Month has come and gone, but for Tina Charles, it's more than just a month.

The special edition sneakers that the New York Liberty star will wear Thursday night reflects as much.

"It's not just a month, it's a movement" is written on the inside of the shoe's tongue, while "Living with Love" is inscribed across the bottom.


According to Charles' Instagram post, the black and gold kicks were inspired by herself and Minnesota Lynx player Seimone Augustus. Both Charles and Augustus were among the WNBA's most visible stars who spoke out in the wake of shootings involving police last summer.
