The following is taken from the Nike website.

This season’s 2018 Nike N7 Collection is inspired by rapper Taboo’s relationship with his Native American heritage, which helped to develop his professional style and gives him pride for his cultural roots.

“My initial style influence was from my grandmother taking me to see traditional dancing in East L.A,” says Taboo. “I was influenced by how they put their outfits together. They wore boots; I wore sneakers. So I started with footwear and accessorized my outfit around that. And it grew from there. My dance style comes from watching ceremonial dance. That’s who I am. I represent what was started hundreds of years ago.”

That traditional Native American dance influence appears in the new collection through intricate beadwork patterning and a color palette from the natural world.

The Nike N7 collection releases November 7 on and at select retailers.”

From time immemorial, through every seventh generation… We represent. #daretorise #untilweallwin
