Rez ball has become even more popular in the Native community, due in part to the star power of players like Shoni and Jude Schimmel, and the mainstream has definitely taken notice. Nike N7 recently announced their new Summer 2015 collection and it is inspired by the tradition of playing basketball on Native lands.
A love of basketball unites Native American and Aboriginal communities and provides a steady pulse that resonates from court to court and generation to generation. The popularity of the sport among Native youth continues to rise, as they set the stage to move their generation and inspire the next.
Nike N7 is celebrating their seventh anniversary this year and to honor the occasion they are teaming up with three Jordan Brand footwear styles: the Air Jordan 1 Low N7, Air Jordan 7 Retro N7 and the Jordan Super Fly 3 PO N7 (also in kids’ sizes).
Check out some of the collection below:
Nike N7 Brand ambassadors featured in the Summer 2015 collection include:
Jordan Nolan: Ojibwe First Nations N7 ambassador and Los Angeles hockey center
Veronica Lind: Navajo N7 ambassador and professional dancer
The Summer 2015 Nike N7 collection will be available beginning June 3 at nike.com, Nike and Foot Locker locations across the United States and Canada. For more information about Nike N7, visit N7Fund.com, and follow Nike N7 on Facebook and @NikeN7.
