Foot Locker joins as retail partner for launch of Summer 2013 N7 collection.
Kevin Durant will debut a new N7 version of his signature Nike Zoom KDV on April 11.
N7 is Nike’s commitment to bring sport and all its benefits to Native American and Aboriginal communities in North America, with a focus on youth.
The Nike Zoom KDV N7 features a turquoise upper and an all-over, yellow fade print inspired by modern Native art. Turquoise is used often as a color symbolic of friendship in many Native communities, and yellow is one of four colors—yellow, red, black and white—featured on the traditional Native America medicine wheel, representing movement and the four directions. The KD logo appears on the right shoe and the N7 logo is on the left.
“Playing in Oklahoma City has connected me to the mission of Nike N7 and the meaningful impact that it has with Native Americans here and across North America,” said Durant. “The new N7 KDV is very special—I believe in the power of sport to change lives and I support helping youth in Native American communities experience the positive benefits of being physically active.”
This is the second year Durant has shown his support for N7 by collaborating with Nike's basketball and N7 teams to design a special version of the Nike Zoom KD. Included with the shoe is a N7 KD T-shirt, featuring a unique KD graphic. The graphic is inspired by Native American art and the dynamic characteristics of Durant's game.
Nike N7 will host a workout event for local youth from the Oklahoma Indian Clinic and Chickasaw Nation on April 12 at a location that will be shared with attendees via @NikeN7.
‘”Foot Locker is thrilled to support the N7 Collection,” said Foot Locker CEO Ken Hicks, who represents the long-time Nike retail partnership and is also a Citizen of the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma. “We look forward to future opportunities to deepen our commitment to the N7 Fund and the powerful work it’s doing to bring sports and physical activity to Native youth.”
The Summer 2013 N7 collection will be widely available beginning April 13 at select Nike retail locations, on nikestore.com, and for the first time at select Foot Locker locations across the United States and Canada and on Footlocker.com.
In addition to the Nike Zoom KDV N7, the Summer 2013 Nike N7 collection also features a Dragon Fly T-Shirt inspired by a legend passed down to Jacoby Ellsbury of the Boston Red Sox from his mother when he was eight. The legend says: If you catch a dragonfly, carefully rub its wings on your feet, then watch it fly away, you’ll become a faster runner. Ellsbury, the first N7 Ambassador and the first major leaguer of Navajo descent, is proud of his heritage and his speed. Other Summer 2013 N7 Collection styles include the N7 Nike Free Forward Moc, N7 Logo T-Shirt, N7 Hoodie, N7 Zone and Tempo Shorts, N7 Legend Capri, Nike LunarGlide+4 N7 and Nike Free Trainer 5.0 N7.
The Nike N7 collection of apparel and footwear is designed for men, women and young athletes, and helps support the N7 Fund and its mission to inspire and enable two million Native American and Aboriginal youth in North American to participate in sport and physical activity. The N7 Collection highlights the N7 philosophy—In every deliberation we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations—and also embodies Nike’s sustainable design ethos to create performance product engineered for superior athletic performance and lower environmental impact.
Since the Nike N7 collection launched in 2009, more than $2 million has been raised for Native American and Aboriginal youth sport programs through the N7 Fund, including the Native Youth Sports Foundation (The Jim Thorpe Games) and the Ottawa County Boys & Girls Clubs in Oklahoma City.
Nike N7 and the N7 Fund are aligned with Designed to Move, a growing community of public, private and civil sector organizations (including Nike) dedicated to ending the growing epidemic of physical inactivity.
