Nike N7 and Kevin Durant Support Native American Youth

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown November 12th, 2013 Last Updated on: November 12th, 2013

Nike N7 announces its third collaboration with Kevin Durant on an N7 version of his signature shoe, the KD VI. Playing in Oklahoma City has connected Kevin Durant to the mission of Nike N7 and the impact it has with Native Americans across North America.

The Nike N7 KD VI features the repeating pattern of arrows that first launched on the Pendleton Woolen Mills Nike N7 blanket last month. The bold colors used on the KD VI have significant meaning in Native communities. Turquoise is used often as a color symbolic of friendship, and red is one of four colors—yellow, red, black and white—featured on the traditional Native America medicine wheel, representing movement and the four directions.

To celebrate Native American Heritage Month, Nike N7 is also bringing together 100 youth from local tribal communities in Oklahoma City, OK for an afternoon basketball skills clinic on Nov. 7 at the Oklahoma City Thunder Training Facility.
