It has a fitting room experience at its heart and features an intimate lounge area where women can hang out, play their own music and shop in full privacy along with their friends.
A FLEXIBLE TRIAL SPACE: Drawing inspiration from the soul of the city, the flexible trial space is designed as a small basketball court, inspiring Dubai youth to try out their new gear. For the store's opening week, this space is designed as a Nike Maker's Studio providing an exclusive Air Force “Hydro Dip” customization experience.
EXCLUSIVE PRODUCT DROPS: The store will drop the coolest products and for the opening week, this will include the iconic Nike HyperAdapt – the first fully functioning athletic shoe that electronically adjusts to the contours of the foot, providing a personal, customized fit.
