Robson Street welcomes its’ latest long-awaited retailer, Nike! With the official opening on August 17th, it has brought a resurgence of athletic wear to the fitness crowd. Nestled in the location previously occupied by MEXX, between Plenty and The Gap, it’s a close walk from Robson and Thurlow.
After a long two and half year absence from it’s first location on Robson Street, it has returned with a bang! Spanning two stories and a full 4,000 square feet, there is something for everyone. The newly opened Nike concept is a focus on running and athletic gear with a curated selection of casual ready to wear styles. With just over 30 different running events happening in Vancouver until the end of the year, we can guarantee that Nike is going to have what you need.
Our favorite detail of the store is the platformed staircase dawning “RUN VAN CITY” that is sure to end up on your friends Instagram account. The store design brings in elements of a casual West Coast feel but embodying the metropolitan vibe you will find at Nike Running Flat Iron District in New York City. If you haven’t had the chance to make your way to Nike, just do it!
