Inside, visitors will find Jordan brand footwear and apparel products across men’s, women’s and kids, as well as customizable products in the store's 'The Workshop', including the AJ1 and the Renegade jacket.
The Shibuya store will have a dedicated 'Snkrs' area for shoppers to pick up products from the app; 'The Flight Lounge', which offers an in-store space for members to immerse themselves in Jordan Brand history and basketball culture, as well as a ' Nike Member' innovation center, providing an opportunity for visitors to test new offerings and experiences.
