We've already seen the special-edition kicks inspired by the Palais of Speed, and now we get a look at the space itself. Housed in the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the experience is designed to celebrate the philosophy of "fast, brilliant football." Exhibitions include a showcase of key Nike football products, including the new Nike Vapor Kits with AeroSwift technology and a curated genealogy of the Mercurial boot, ranging from the very first Mercurial from 1998 to the present iteration, the Mercurial Superfly V. Interactive experiences include a a virtual race against some of the game's fastest athletes, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Anthony Martial and Eden Hazard, as well as series of mental challenges testing participants' football knowledge. Finally, the "Palais of Speed" Football X pitch will host Europe’s best crews for the Winner Stays Football X European tournament, culminating in a championship match on June 18.
The Palais of Speed will run June 4-18, weekdays from 12pm-9pm and weekends from 10am-9pm. Go to nike.com/palaisofspeed now to register.
