sports lab by atmos shinjuku tokyo japan 01 Sports Lab by atmos   New Flagship Store in Shinjuku | By TORAFU Architects




While it has long maintain a large presence on the Internet, atmos Tokyo‘s Harajuku flagship store is actually no larger than a kiosk to a certain extent. That is about to change this August when the sneakers/sportswear retailer opens a new retail location in the neighborhood of Shinjuku. Just north of Shibuya and Harajuku, the new flagship is right across from Shinjuku train station and steps away from Shinjuku Takashimaya Times Square department store. Dubbed “Sports Lab by atmos,” and designed by TORAFU Architects, best known for their minimalistic approach on AESOP Shibuya flagship, the store features approximately 200 square meters of space with decor fashioned in recycled building materials taken from a gym. In addition to the popular brands it already offers, like HEAD PORTER, Nike, The North Face, retaW, and others, the larger space allows atmos to add more names in its brand portfolio. Sports Lab by atmos is set to open on Saturday, August 3rd.

This week was a big one for Sneaker News, as we finally let loose our brand new Sneaker News Select channel. As you saw over the past couple of days, that spot on the site will be bringing you exclusive, original content like collab stories, insane collections, and behind the scenes Air Jordan news. Of course that doesn’t mean we’re slowing down the daily flow of news one bit. This week we kept you informed on Jordan Brand’s movements out in China, their plans for retro pricing in 2014, and the future of Melo’s line. Kevin Durant was out in China as well, a trip that coincided with the release his Nike KD VI “Bamboo”.

Kobe and LeBron had plenty of going on-the former getting an exciting NIKEiD upgrade to his sig and the latter getting ready for the release of his next. The celeb kicks category saw a few curveballs, as Patrick Ewing had us all nostalgic with his footwear choice and Kristen Wiig hit late night with a pair of Jordans. Nike Flyknit saw a huge boost thanks to the likes of the new Nike Flyknit Hyperfeel and the Nike Fyknit Free, both of which were rolled out at Nike’s latest Innovation Summit meeting in Beaverton. adidas dropped the much anticipated adidas Y-3 Qasa High urban Ninja shoe, Extra Butter slyly promised us some Asics heat, and Ronnie Fieg liberated the release date for his latest GLIII banger. J. Crew and New Balance got back in bed and Jason Dill’s profane Vans collab showed up a Supreme stores. Oh, and did we mention the biggest sneaker show ever hit NYC for the weeekend? Get all those headlinds and more just after the jump in this edition of Sneaker News Weekly Rewind.

Next on the “Tale of Three Cities” from Nike is Guangzhou in southern China. With roughly 12 million people living in and around its urban center, Guangzhou is China’s third largest city after Shanghai and Beijing. It is also one of China’s most prosperous sub-provincial city. One of the few region opened to foreigners in the centuries before, Guangzhou became a thriving port and still is a world leading manufacturing center for textile, high-tech product and other goods. Perhaps it was Guangzhou’s prowess in international trade that it earned a long association with the ferocious tiger. Hence, Nike Basketball‘s flamboyant appointment of orange/black tiger stripes on Guangzhou’s version of Nike Zoom Hyperflight. Further highlight by the copper-tone overlay and perforated leather, Nike also added the Chinese character of “?”, or “Yue” a general description of South China region, onto the shoe’s insole.

Like the Nike Zoom Hyperflight Premium “Beijing: Lion”, the Nike Zoom Hyperflight Premium “Guangzhou: Tiger” will be available at select Nike China retail locations starting tomorrow, July 20th. If everything goes accordingly, the collection will also be available to consumers in the US two weeks from now.

Nike Zoom Hyperflight – “Beijing: Lion” | Detailed Look


nike zoom hyperflight beijing lion detailed look 01 570x570 Nike Zoom Hyperflight   Beijing: Lion | Detailed Look

It is the “Tale of Three Cities” as Nike and its Nike Basketball division unveiled the new Zoom Hyperflight Collection for China – a total of three distinctive designs, each referring to the three major urban centers in China, including its capital city of Beijing. Formally known as the “Northern Capital” by its Chinese characters, the city was once the summer retreat for Emperors and Imperial Household till the 1600s when Qing Dynasty rulers made it China’s sole capital. With inspirations from Beijing’s long association with Chinese Emperors, Empresses, and ruling royalties of the past, Nike appointed the city’s Nike Zoom Hyperflight edition in a golden-copper synthetic upper. Etched in an intricate weave pattern, the sneaker takes on a persona of a lion, a symbol of imperial power and protector of the throne. To further accentuate its design and the city itself, Nike added the Chinese character of “?”, or “Jing” for capital city, onto the shoe’s insole.

The Nike Zoom Hyperflight “Beijing: Lion” will be available at select Nike China retail locations across the Middle Kingdom starting tomorrow, July 20st. If everything goes accordingly, the collection will also be available to consumers in the US two weeks from now.
