Nike & Pendleton Unveil A Navajo-Themed Southwest Collection

Nov 11, 2019

Category: Style

In honor of the tenth anniversary of Nike’s first collaboration with Pendleton, the two Northwestern companies have launched a new capsule collection celebrating the culture and aesthetics of the local indigenous populations. Launched as part of the footwear giant’s N7 Collection – which provides millions in funding for sports programs in Native American and Aboriginal communities — the assortment of offerings see several models in Nike’s current footwear line decked out in patterns inspired by traditional Navajo weave patterns.

The collection was penned by Tracie Jackson, an in-house graphic designer at Nike who’s grandma taught her the intricate art of the Navajo Nation’s textile practices and the meanings behind the designs. Included in the new collaborative range are several shirts, sweatshirts, leggings, and jogger pants, as well as the aforementioned Navajo-patterned N7 shoes like the Zoom Heritage, Air Jordan 8 Retro, Air Zoom Pegasus 36, and Air Force 1 ’07. On top of the unique pattern and colorways, the new products also feature unique branding from the Portland outfit. A portion of the proceeds from sales this time will go to the American Indian College Fund, too.
