Latino Heritage Month

Latino Heritage Month


Nothing drives the Latin community like Family. By establishing the connection between Family & Sport, we wanted to redefine what it means to be a Latino Athlete* today, by creating inspiring stories of product and athletes*.


The latino consumer has been overlooked. Nike has started the journey to elevate the community through authentic stories of Representation and Sport Inspiration. We know Latin Heritage Month is not just a moment, so how do we make sure that this is only the starting point for a more inclusive community of Sport?


We helped bring to life the first Latino Heritage Month Campaign by Nike North America.

By telling the stories and paying homage to those Latinos igniting change and paving the way for the next latino generation to take up space in Sport. On and off the court.

A shoe as diverse as the community it represents. Latin X isn’t one, it’s many.

We brought the AirMax 90 LHM back inside the community. Finding compositions in balance with the culture.

“Latinas, never give up. Everything we do. We do with passion.” Leticia Bufoni moved to the US from São Paolo, at the age of 14 to chase her dream of being a professional skateboarder.

Today, she credits that passion, as well as the support of her family for all that she’s been able to accomplish. Now she’s looking to pass on those same lessons inspire even more Latinas to pick up a board.

Telling the story of Devin Booker was key for an unexpected cultural connection. A call of hope running through a common history. Bringing the attention of those those who see themselves in him.

“Living in Phoenix has allowed me to dig deeper into my bloodline and my Mexican heritage. Seeing people of my descent supporting me and understanding I’m in this journey of learning my bloodline even more, has been amazing. They have taken me in like family”.

We aimed to highlight the diverse diaspora of LatinX across the nation by bringing light to strong Latinas empowering their communities through sport. Showing that while backgrounds and origins may vary two things bring this community together – Sport & Family.

“Quizás comenzamos en lugares diferentes,
but together we rise Stronger. Somos Familia.”
