Posted in Gear/Fashion, Kicks, Sports with tags , , , on November 13, 2011 by Citifiable

Nike recently opened a Flagship “Nike Brand Experience” location in Portland, OR.  There are tons of incredible displays in the 26,000 square foot space, one of which was released by Jordan Brand this week, the Air Jordan ‘Home Bulls’ Collection. Paying homage to the history and legacy of MJ, the collection includes every pair of Air Jordans from the Air Jordan 1 to last year’s AJ 2010. Each pair carries a similar look that features white uppers, red outsoles, red inner-liners and black laces. The entire collection is up on display at the new Nike Portland retail space, but there has been no word of a public release.

Overlooking the under-construction Barclays Center on Monday, Nets basketball team part owner Jay-Z announced that the Nets will take the name of their new home, Brooklyn, when they leave New Jersey in 2012, officially becoming the Brooklyn Nets. He also announced that he’ll personally open the Barclays Center with 1 or possibly a few special concerts when the 18,000-seat arena opens next September 2012, as well as playing a role in the design of the team’s new logo and uniform alongside adidas.

Thought this was cool when I saw it today – M&M’s has partnered with the NFL, giving customers the ability to create custom color M&M’s stamped with their favorite team logos.  There’s even custom team dispensers.  Now that the season is back on, snap some up now for your opening day BBQ.  We recommend the Steelers of course.

Nike – 1948 London Re-Opening

No stranger to innovative, game-changing retail spaces, Nike helped redefine what it means to open a storefront in the summer of 2008 when it launched 1948 in an abandoned East London railway arch. Part retail space, part creative playground, the 1948 project was designed to celebrate freedom and self-expression through the media of sport and culture – an ode to the 1948 Olympic Games in London that helped to heal a European continent and global environment still recuperating from the terror of World War II. Appropriately, the space has just undergone a massive redesign in preparation for the 2012 Olympics. The new 1948 will not only stock the most exclusive Nike footwear and apparel available, but also serve as a community space as the venerable sportswear brand has encouraged local Londoners to gather at the store for installations, screenings and events.
