This group will be focused on our SNKRS app, a sleekly designed online store stocked with high-end shoes. This application will be targeted towards the sneaker enthusiast, and it's function extends beyond the digital storefront. While shoes are a consumer staple, Nike's success in footwear owes a great deal to the lifestyle brand and image that the company has cultivated, and there exists a sizable market of sneaker enthusiasts. A culture has developed around the products that places a premium on fashion and rarity, and the SNKRS app represents an attempt by Nike to further bridge sneaker culture into the social-media sphere. SNKRS allows users to check out the history of shoes and invite friends in addition to purchasing and pre-ordering new shoes and retro restocks, and it encourages the experience to be a communal affair through social-media postings. Nike has pointed to digital sales and advertising as a major part of its growth story, citing an ability to customize its offerings as a major opportunity, and the SNKRS app is an early indication of the promise in this approach. With the Nike.com main page, Nike+ app for athletics tracking, and special category apps such as SNKRS, we are building the global reach of our brand and products.
