Nike Air Native N7 shoe available via tribal wellness programs
TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – On Feb. 1 Nike launched the 2012 Air Native Temp+ N7 shoe, the second generation of Air Native footwear designed specifically for Native American and Aboriginal consumers.
The Nike Air Native N7 is the result of years of collaborative research development and fit testing in partnership with the American Indian community, which determined that Native people on average have a wider and taller foot than most non-Natives.
Since its initial launch in 2007, the Nike Air Native N7 has been updated annually with new and improved features ultimately comprising today’s latest incarnation, the Tempo+ N7.
Nike Air Native Tempo+ N7 features include, outsole trail specific traction elements for enhanced traction, grip and performance over a variety of surfaces and conditions, design details and graphics such as a whip stitch around the Nike swoosh and embroidered eyelets for a hand crafted look and feel, a mid-foot lockdown system with interwoven overlays for custom fit and feel, laces made with 100 percent recycled material and colored aglets, pull tabs on the back of the shoe for ease of entry and reflective pill for visibility in the dark and the original Nike Air Native N7 shoe width.
The Nike Air Native Tempo+ N7 is only available through tribal wellness programs that are more specifically identified as health disease prevention programs, urban Indian health center and in Canada First Nation health centers, urban Aboriginal health centers and Aboriginal community wellness programs.
