does have a feather pattern on the insole. I guess they couldn't pry away the license for "Chief Wahoo."
"True Native Fit?" You've gotta be kidding me. That's like an ad for the Ray Fong Adidas saying, "Now With TRUE ASIAN FIT!"
How freaking patronizing is this? This is just a blind, ham-handed agglomeration of random focus group data and stereotype.
The conflation of all American Indian nations and cultures is as sickening as it is ubiquitous.
The concept of seventh generation sustainability isn't some generic, universally held mysticism endemic to all American Indians. It was an actual law of the Six Nation Confederacy, which included the Mohawks, Oneidas, Cayugas, Senecas, and Tuscaroras. The Six Nation Confederacy, by the way, was almost certainly the primary inspiration behind this government's representative democracy, three branched government, system of checks and balances, and bicameral legislature.
Seriously, it's like claiming there's ONE European culture and everyone in Europe wears clogs and berets, drinks vodka, dances the Polka, lives in Gothic cathedrals, and loves pasta.

It sounds a little strange to me as well but have you heard feedback directly from who the shoe is being marketed to? I see Nike's stated intentions in their news release and while it's usually assumed that every corporation has ulterior motives I'm hard pressed in this case to see what they might be, am I not looking hard enough?

THAT WAS A PIMP SCHOOL MAN!
