Drawing inspiration from the soul of the city, the new Dubai store will have a flexible trial space which has been designed as a small basketball court, inspiring Dubai youth to try out their new gear.

The store will drop the coolest products and for the opening week, this will include the iconic Nike HyperAdapt – the first fully functioning athletic shoe that electronically adjusts to the contours of the foot, providing a personal, customized fit," said the spokesman.
 
According to him, a major highlight of the mega store will be community hub.
