Each year, Nike honors and supports Native American and Indigenous communities with its N7 product line. Influenced by the Native American wisdom of the seven generations, the N7 project celebrates this rich heritage with various thematic footwear and apparel releases. Adding to this, Nike has awarded over $8 million USD in grants via the N7 Fund since 2009, supporting over 270 communities and organizations.
Now, following early looks at the 2023 collection including a trail-ready version of the Free Crater Trail “N7,” a first look at the SB Dunk Low Decon “N7” has surfaced. A deconstructed take on the sneaker sees exposed stitching run across its overlays and Swooshes while colorful graphics of birds and flowers break up the otherwise black and white upper. The base appears in a white canvas while white leather hits the mudguard, heel tab and Swooshes. Nike SB and Nike N7 branding hits the heel in a red embroidery and sockliner in a red print. As for the aforementioned graphics, they come embroidered on the black overlays and toe box, matching the custom sockliner. Completing the look, a white stitched midsole and icy blue translucent outsole supports the sneaker.
Based on the release planning of Nike’s previous N7 collections, the Nike SB Dunk Low Decon “N7” should touch down on shelves in either June or July of this year via Nike alongside other footwear options outfitted in the theme. Stay tuned for official images and release information as we progress through the year.
