Nike has introduced Nike N7 performance footwear. The Nike N7 Collection is designed with the environment and Native American communities in mind. N7 will be sold exclusively through 33 Nike Factory Stores in the USA. A portion of the profits will go towards the N7 Fund, which supports youth sports in Native communities.
"For more than 10 years Nike has worked closely with Native American communities to provide support through product innovations specific to the needs of Native Americans and by providing grants to support sport programs through the N7 Fund," said Sam McCracken from Nike. "With the introduction of the N7 Collection, consumers now have the ability to be their own agents of change, as the profits from their purchase will help young people in Native American communities realize their potential through sport."
The N7 Collection was created with the help of Considered Design. CD engineers developed the shoes for higher performance and lower environmental impact.
The N7 Collection features the N7 Air Pegasus+ 26, the N7 Huarache, as well as the N7 SMS RT for preschool and toddler sizes.
The N7 Fund helps unleash the potential of Native youth in sport. The project builds surfaces for play, provides grants and product donations, and brings people and organizations together to enable youth to live healthy and active lives. .
