Back in February, we broke the news that Nike was set to take over Abercrombie & Fitch's massively prime space at The Grove. After months of anticipation, the athletic footwear and lifestyle retailer has finally settled into its new, 31,000-square-foot home, and they've named this its premier West Coast location.
Offering a whopping three stories of stylish sportswear, Nike The Grove features some of the brand's most innovative products—including the new FLYEASE footwear line—in addition to incredible design elements. Highlights include reclaimed wood floors sourced from a local high school, a miniature soccer pitch with a mural highlighting iconic stars Clint Dempsey and Alex Morgan designed by local artist Tristan Eaton, a "We are LA" mural that spans all three stories and that's created from thousands of LA-centric icons, a basketball trial area for dribbling trials, a station for customized services such as bra fittings and pant hemmings, and more.

Nike The Grove is open Monday through Friday from 10am to 9pm, Saturday from 10am to 10pm, and Sunday from 10am to 9pm.
