In 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 debuted with visible air in its heel, allowing fans more than just the feel of Air-Sole comfort suddenly they could see it. Since then, next-generation Nike Air Max shoes have become a hit with athletes and collectors by offering striking color combinations and reliable, lightweight cushioning. About Nike N7Since 2009, Nike's N7 program has provided more than $2 million of support to Native American and Aboriginal youth sports programs, helping boys and girls experience teamwork and leadership. The program is driven by Native American wisdom of the Seven Generations: In every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the seventh generation. The ultimate goal of Nike N7 is to consider this impact and to help Native American and Aboriginal youth recognize their proud history and build on it for a triumphant future.
