Nike’s N7 collection has paid yearly tribute to the culture and customs of both Native American and Indigenous cultures since 2009. Kyrie Irving used to be in charge of the tribute with his previous signature series, but for the first time since Tinker Hatfield came up with the Air Zoom Down Rock and Zoom Heritage in 2019, all-new silhouettes were built for the event.
The model is elevated by the lacing system and mixed materials
The Nike Free Crater Trail now coordinates a weather-resistant boot-like construction, following the silhouette’s move to a mule last season. Round yellow laces wrap around the fading “Cargo Khaki” body before being fed through the corresponding secondary tongue overlay, which culminates with a circular lace clinch, creating a revolutionary, first-of-its-kind lacing system. A “Habanero Red” fleece sock liner and rubberized “Olive Flak” midfoot caging and mudguard further explore the pair’s nature-inspired tonal palette by combining luxury textures through the dominant real estate value allocated to the nubuck leather upper. A disparate sampling of pink concludes the upper’s embellishments, while underfoot the brand’s mid-2010 staple Nike Free cushioning system indulges in a slightly brightened “Light Orewood Brown” conclusion, rendered in a rarely yet repeating fashion through securing loops, lace tips, and the heel counter.
The Nike Free Crater Trail embodies the words bold, original, and futuristic. This is unquestionably a pair of sneakers that demonstrate to the world just how innovative Nike is. Look no further than the Nike Free Crater Trail for something fascinating, new, and unusual.
