Native Americans may soon be walking -- or running -- with an extra spring in their step. Nike analyzed the feet of more than 200 Native Americans from 70 tribes, discovering that their feet are, on average, wider and taller.

Nike designed a shoe, the ‘Air Native,’ to better accommodate those features. They'll be sold at wholesale prices to tribal schools and wellness programs, which will then make them available to their members often at no cost.

Nike officials say they will reinvest whatever money they make in profit in tribal health programs.
