Nike honors Native American Heritage Month with the unveiling of a new N7 series. Designed for the season, the assortment consists of three shoes and different types of clothing.
As the Native American Heritage Month acts as a time to explore the experiences of indigenous peoples and how contemporary North America is shaping them, Nike looks to Kyrie Irving and his native rediscovery.
“I’m extremely proud to be Lakota Sioux, and at the same time, I’m still in the process of diving deeper into discovering who I am and where I come from,” Irving said. “Everything that comes with my background is something I’ve always accepted, but I didn’t necessarily understand it until now. The immense pride I feel comes from this journey I’ve been on, this rediscovery I’ve made in my adult life.”
The color scheme for the Winter 2020 N7 collection corresponds to the star quilt and medallion that Kyrie received at his Standing Rock Sioux Tribe naming ceremony in 2018. The multicolored pattern is then used on the Air Max 1, SB Blazer Low GT, and Irving’s Kyrie 6, plus hoodies, long-and short-sleeved T-shirts and leggings.
Priced from $40 for tees to $130 for sneakers, you can buy curated items from the Nike N7 Winter Collection now at http://www.nike.com
