Launched in 2009, Nike‘s N7 Collection looks to celebrate the Native American community through footwear and apparel offerings honoring the various indigenous cultures and crafts. A central figure for N7 is NBA star Kyrie Irving, who recently reconnected with his Native American roots, visiting and joining his late mother’s Standing Rock Sioux Tribe located in South Dakota. To celebrate the occasion Irving’s all-new Kyrie 8 (previously referred to as the Kyrie 9) silhouette is now arriving in a special “N7” colorway dedicated to the Standing Rock Tribe.

The upcoming pairs arrive primarily in dark olive tight-knit mesh uppers with accent-stitched leather trim. Bone tones are fitted along the punch hole-patterned collar piece as well as the tongue tabs featuring markings representative of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe meanwhile dark pink hits are spread across the lateral Swoosh, heel markings, and exposed Air Zoom Strobel window on the toe. Additional highlights include “N7” symbols on the insoles, symbolic of the Native American wisdom considering the impact of each decision on the seventh generation. Rounding out the design are signature-marked white midsoles and grooved outsoles made for the hardwood.

Take a closer look at the Kyrie Irving 8 “N7” above and stay tuned for release details.
