Another month, another shoe release.
In tonight’s game at Golden State, Kevin Durant will debut the KD V N7′s (shown above/below), a version of his newest sneakers that pays homage to Native American communities across the country.
It’s part of Nike’s latest commitment to bring sports to the Native American and Aboriginal youth.
Inspired by modern Native American art, the N7 KD V features a turquoise upper and an all-over yellow fade print. Turquoise is symbolic of friendship in many Native communities, and yellow is one of four colors on a traditional Native American medicine wheel, representing movement. Durant’s logo appears on the right side, while N7 adorns the left.
“Playing in Oklahoma City has connected me to the mission of Nike N7 and the meaningful impact that it has with Native Americans here and across North America,” Durant said in a press release. “The new N7 KD V is very special. I believe in the power of sport to change lives and I support helping youth in Native American communities experience the positive benefits of being physically active.”
They will go on sale this Saturday.
