Nike's highly anticipated 2016 BeTrue line is about to hit stores online and across the country, and we are now getting our first look at several of the shoes that will be available.

The rainbow is back for 2016, and it has been the signature of the line since its inception several years ago. Whereas past lines have featured a kind of tribal pattern, that has been replaced this year with triangles, a powerful LGBT cultural symbol. A pink triangle adorns the tongue of the Zoom HyperRev, while triangles cover the entire Lunar Tempo 2 shoe.

Nike has gone (mostly) all-white with the Air Max Zero. That the company has decided to include this iconic shoe in the line is very big deal and says a lot about the continued embrace of the community and the BeTrue line by the company. The rainbows on the Air Max Zero are more subtle, on the sole and inside the shoe.

The line is expected to be available online this week, so keep checking back at Nike.com.
