Nike has released a new Colin Kaepernick jersey.

The new piece is similar to Nike’s first post-NFL Kaep jersey, The Hill reports. Like that jersey, this one is black with the number 7 and the player’s last name in white on the back. It features no team or league logos; instead, it has a “K” logo and a silhouette of Kaepernick’s head. The bottom of the V neck, which in standard NFL jerseys features the league’s logo, is empty.

On Twitter, Kaepernick dedicated the shirt to “those true to themselves on and off the field. Proudly, unapologetically and against all odds.” The former footballer also teased future releases, writing, “This is only the beginning.” 

A Nike spokesperson told USA Today the company wanted to celebrate the athlete’s social justice achievements with the jersey.

“We believe Colin Kaepernick is one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation, who has leveraged the power of sport to help move the world forward,” the spokesperson said.

The piece, known as the Kaepernick Icon Jersey, went on sale Tuesday and is priced at $150. Nike has said like its previous Kaep-related releases, the jersey has been produced in limited quantities and will only be offered for a limited time. 

The clothing drop comes just days after the former quarterback ended his collusion case against the NFL. As Blavity reported, the case accused league owners of refusing to sign Kaepernick over his anti-police brutality protests. The league paid Kaep an undisclosed amount to end his suit.

Kaepernick became the face of Nike last September and remains an ambassador for the brand.
