New Nike shoe – for Native Americans only

Nike, for the first time, has designed a shoe for a specific race or ethnicity. The Air Native N7 is designed with a larger fit for the distinct foot shape of American Indians, and has a culturally specific look.

Nike designers and researchers looked at the feet of more than 200 people from more than 70 tribes nationwide and found that in general, American Indians have a much wider and taller foot than the average shoe accommodates. The average shoe width of men and women measured was three width sizes larger than the standard Nike shoe.

I love learning about new things, even about people’s feet.
