Nike introduces N7 Collection

Nov '09
This weekend Nike will debut the Nike N7 Collection, a select range of performance footwear designed with the environment and the future of Native American communities in mind. The N7 Collection will be sold exclusively through 33 Nike Factory Stores in the U.S., with a portion of the profits going to the N7 Fund, which supports youth sport in Native American communities.

“For more than 10 years Nike has worked closely with Native American communities to provide support through product innovations specific to the needs of Native Americans and by providing grants to support sport programs through the N7 Fund,” said Sam McCracken, General Manager of Nike's Native American Business. “With the introduction of the N7 Collection, consumers now have the ability to be their own agents of change, as the profits from their purchase will help young people in Native American communities realize their potential through sport.”

The N7 Collection was created through the lens of Considered Design where products are engineered for higher performance and lower environmental impact.

The N7 Collection features the N7 Air Pegasus+ 26, the N7 Huarache, as well as the N7 SMS RT for preschool and toddler sizes.

Nike N7 Air Pegasus+ 26
The Pegasus is one of Nike's best known icons and Nike's top selling running shoe. After 26 years on the feet of elite and everyday runners, the Pegasus continues to prove that it's capable of running past just about anything. The Nike N7 Air Pegasus+ 26 features Native American inspired design details and graphics that tie the shoe back to the N7 Collection.

Features include:

• The N7 Air Pegasus+ 26 features a snug, secure fit, enhanced stability and a smooth, natural range of motion through all phases of footstrike with strategically placed overlays and zonal support.
• A full-length Air-Sole unit delivers the ride and cushioning associated with the Air Pegasus franchise and now accommodates a Nike+ sensor for an enhanced running experience.
• The fitsole sockliner, featuring N7 design details, molds to the shape of your foot for a custom fit with great support.

Considered Design features include:

• Environmentally Preferred Materials (EPMs) were used wherever possible. The EPMs used in the upper have a high recycled content.
• The Waffle outsole uses Nike's environmentally-preferred rubber as well as Nike Grind, recycled athletic footwear and manufacturing scrap, to provide great multi-surface traction with a measure of added cushioning.
• The Nike Air bags also used 83 percent recycled content.
• Best-practice manufacturing enabled the air bag and midsole components to be attached using water-based adhesives.

Nike N7 Huarache

The Nike N7 Huarache combines a performance basketball shoe featuring the newest innovations for sport paired with Nike's Considered Design approach. The N7 Huarache features design details and graphics that tie this shoe back to the N7 Collection, engineered for higher performance and lower environmental impact.
