Nike opened its flagship, New York City retail experience mid-November with a promise of delivering a futuristic digital shopping experience in store that’s as seamless as making purchases online via the Nike app. So, to get a glimpse of what Nike is offering consumers, EM braved below-freezing temperatures and trekked to Fifth Avenue and 52nd street to explore the brand’s six-story, 68,000-square-foot “House of Innovation” ahead of the holiday.
