Last week I had the opportunity to check out Foot Locker x Nike “Sneakeasy” before they opened it to the public. At 30 Wall Street down in the financial district of Manhattan, the United States first Federal reserve bank was converted into a one of a kind shopping experience. This location held the most gold in the U.S. second to Ft. Knox which is where Nike got the inspiration for the gold sneaker and safety deposit boxes.
There are 3 focal points of the Sneakeasy Legends of the game, Force and Air. Every three days the theme and product will change, 20 new sneakers when the theme is changed.
One thing that I found out was pretty dope was stock market ticker which showed how many sneakers are on hand and when the inventory it created a notification like the real life stock market.
To top the night off Odell Beckham Jr. made a surprise appearance answering Q&A from young athletes and giving the story on his first sneaker with Nike, the OBJ SF Air Force 1. The yellow color behind his shoe was from his first visit to the Empire State building, he looked down and the entire city looked yellow from all the taxi cabs, and the gum bottom from the the famous boot that you see in all those New York memes.
The Roc-A-Fella AF1 was definitely the surprise shoe of the evening seeing that was totally unexpected. That was also my first time seeing the the Just Don Air Force 1, I was impressed how he was able to fuse the AF1, 2, and 3 into one and still keep a premium, elegant look.
You have until December 1st to check out the Sneakeasy, be sure to check out the Foot Locker and Snkrs app to see what is going to drop next.
