Nike International Collection
French terry hoodie, $100
Nike's new shop on Miami's popular Lincoln Road promenade.We recently wandered into Nike's brand new flagship in Miami Beach, a 31,000-square-foot multi-level retail experience that houses everything from contemporary art installations to an immersive digital treadmill for trying out running shoes and a basketball proving ground to test sneakers (or just shoot a few hoops). The place was pretty damn impressive. But while we came to check out the space, we stayed for the goods on the shelves. It was the first time we'd seen the Nike International collection in person.
First developed in 1989 as a global club for its elite track and field athletes, the line soon began to take inspiration from its members' personal style and swagger. The brand recently revitalized Nike International into a new collection and its latest line is inspired by the off-road style of Japanese joggers and the runners who traverse Tokyo's busy streets. Featuring pants cut from soft, four-way stretch fabric and a funnel-neck hoodie with split vented kangaroo pockets, each piece is extremely comfortable and uniquely cool.
