“This latest Nike N7 collection adds new designs and emotional resonance to what has come before, unapologetically celebrating Indigenous traditions while looking to the future. Celebrating Indigenous cultures across North America, the N7 Collection focuses on the future while staying rooted in the past, embracing heritage prints and motifs while incorporating them into modern aesthetics. Centering Indigenous Youth, the N7 Collection is designed to reinforce ownership over the rebellion, self-expression, and, most importantly, the self-empowerment they demand—and deserve.” -Nike N7.
