Opened in August 2008, it didn’t take long for Nike Sportswear’s flagship store on 21 Mercer Street to ingrain itself as a fixture among New York City’s leading retail destinations, especially among sneakheads and trendsetters. Now, after closing its doors for nearly a month, the store will be open once again as brand new concept store from Nike. Though no details are known at this time, the new storefront will likely to have more space for even more Nike products. The all-new Nike 21 Mercer is set to open next Wednesday, June 11th. In the meantime, check out extravagant block-party Nike threw during the store’s official opening back in 2008 below.
