Nikes 1948 Pop-up Shop

Made it over to '1948', Nikes pop up store in Shoreditch, 1948 being the year the Olympics were last held in the U.K. It is quite impressive for a pop-up shop, with large scale art work by Mode 2 and reclaimed school gym apparatus for shelving and shop fittings. It fits in nicely under one of the arches on Batemans Row..

All the apparel as you can imagine is Olympic inspired and it has its own facilities for creating your Nike IDs to mach the garms you buy.

It also has a room showcasing all the shoes Nike has produced for this years Olympics including the Dunk Gyrizo for BMX (pictured below).

Definitely worth going down to Shoreditch to check out for sure.
