Nike is honouring Canada’s National Aboriginal Day (June 21) and launching their N7 collection for summer 2017. This year’s collection is inspired by Jordan Nolan, a Canadian hockey star playing for the Los Angeles Kings and member of the First Nations Ojibwe tribe.
The collection is comprised of men’s and women’s footwear as well as select apparel pieces featuring the thunderbird, the symbol of the Ojibwe tribe. “The thunderbird’s power inspires me. It also forms beautiful artwork,” said Nolan in a press release. “Much like the thunderbird, I think of myself as a protector on the ice and take pride in my teammates.”
Footwear options for men include the Kyrie 3 N7, Air Flight Huarache N7 and Sock Dart N7 while women’s sizing is only available for the Sock Dart N7. Apparel options for men include Air Pivot N7 jerseys, hoodies and shorts while women’s options include the Signal N7 tank, Modern N7 crew and Holdout N7 tight.
Just like the previous N7 collections, the summer 2017 assortment supports the N7 Fund and Nike’s “long-time commitment and mission to inspire and enable Native American and Aboriginal youth in North America to participate in sport and physical activity.”
The Nike N7 Summer 2017 collection is now available online and at select retailers.
