A Peek Inside Nike’s Reopened Chicago Store


Did you know Nike has a store on Michigan Ave.? Maybe it's the tourists who know, because none of my runner friends or sedentary ones do, either.

Regardless, when the athletics giant extended an invitation for me to come check out the company's new Nike+ Kinect Training title, an Xbox 360 game that's a legitimate workout program you can spin in your game machine in your living room, I was glad to have an excuse to discover the store and share a glimpse of it here. What follows is a gallery the recently released game and the recently reopened store.
