Nike and Foot Locker came together to create a new footwear pop-up for sneaker fans that is set up like a traditional speakeasy. The newly set up 'Sneakeasy' in New York City is said to have nondescript double doors that covertly lead the way to paradise for a sneaker lover.
Inside the Sneakeasy, footwear fans will find a variety of Nike and Jordan silhouettes. As the space that the pop-up is housed in used to be a bank, the pop-up plays up its history with details such as shoeboxes that are covered in gold foil, complete with hidden UV ink designs and sealed by notary stickers. At the pop-up, Nike fans also have the chance to get their hands on exclusive t-shirts that are also packaged with gold foil packs and sealed with notary sticker labels.
This style of secretive event preys on a consumer's fear of missing out and drives them to become part of the exclusive event.
