Celebrating the sporting heavyweight’s heritage with Brazilian football, the three-story outpost is outfitted in the Brazilian national team’s colors while Carioca graffiti artist Mateu Velassco’s compelling illustrations take on the distressed brick walls. Elsewhere, Nike pays tribute to the country’s football culture with a special section displaying the iconic Nike Tiempo 94 — worn by the likes of Ronaldo and Ronaldinho – while a bevy of football apparel, equipment and sportswear are also on offer, including match-day kits.
