Nike's Shoe Box Pop-Up
Few companies understand branding as intimately as Nike does, from the iconic tick, through to the era-defining, fat-soled Air-Max shoes. Nike has always seemed one step ahead of the curve when it comes to engaging their customers whether it be through sporting sponsorships, ubiquitous branding, or more recently through strategic and brilliant experiential design projects.
So of course when Air Max Day was launched in Shanghai, Nike did nothing less than was expected and created a mind-blowing shoe box pop-up, showcasing the history of the product while also engaging customers in a truly immersive experience.

The experience didn’t stop there however, as many stores around the city partnered up with the brand to incorporate a series of in-store installations to accompany the experience on Air Max Day.
Whats really impressive is while each individual component is outstanding its the culmination of all levels of interaction that Nike has taken to engage their customer base that really ties it all together.
