Celebrate the proud history of Native Americans and Indigenous peoples in North America with the Nike Kyrie 6 N7. The raised haptic graphic is inspired by the gifts given by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to Kyrie during his naming ceremony and honors the vibrant patterns of certain Native artwork. Zoom Air cushioning adds unparalleled comfort while the mid-height collar with adjustable strap lets you personalize your fit.
Honoring the generosity and respect inherent to Indigenous communities, the vibrant graphic on the upper celebrates Native artwork and nods to the quilts and medallions gifted to recipients during naming ceremonies.
Taking inspiration from the beaded medallions of certain Native Americans and Indigenous peoples, the haptic graphic creates a 3 dimensional effect that adds depth and texture. Created by hand, these medallions are received with a great deal of respect for the amount of time and energy it takes to create them.
The star design pays tribute to Kyrie's personal journey to reconnect with his indigenous roots and represents the long history of Lakota star quilts.
Since 2009, N7 has provided financial support to youth sports programs for Native American and Aboriginal communities. The ultimate goal of Nike N7 is to give young people the skills and experiences they need to be a force for positive change in their communities.
