the flagship ‘NIKE house of innovation 000′ offers spaces and experiences that are both personal and responsive. starting with the speed shop, which possesses access to products people in NYC love, and finishing with the expert studio for NIKEplus members, visitors can have a quick visit or a premium service with one-to-one sessions. the other levels include the different areas where products are presented; the women’s and young athlete’s product zone; the men’s product zone; and the NIKE sneaker lab.

the flagship store also proposes a practical blend of digital and retail, allowing customers to explore different style tips through the NIKE+ app. using ‘shop the look’, visitors can find on every mannequin a QR code that they can scan and the item will be instantly delivered, so they can try it on. the app also lets you know what each mannequin is wearing and what sizes are available in-store.

overall, the aesthetics of the store were inspired by the fluidity of sport and have been created to ignite the next evolution of NIKE retail. as an exclusive, the new york store will offer the ‘noise cancelling collection’ referencing NIKE’s desire to obstruct the noise of NYC and inspire athletes to ‘dream loud enough that they can silence the city’.
