Designed to showcase Nike’s product innovation across multiple categories, the store also offers the brand’s first “Nike By You” in-store customisation service in Thailand.

 

Operated by Southeast Asian luxury and lifestyle retail specialist Valiram, the new Nike Thailand store offers a blend of physical and digital retail experiences for shoppers.

I was told our local market can knock 'em out at 200 Baht/pair because they have lower overheads.............

Probably exactly the same "made in Vietnam" Nike's - Cut out the middle man 😉

Why is the size given in square feet and not metres??

Yankie speak.  The USA must be one of the last countries to use the imperial system of measurement.  The vast majority of countries use the metric system.

A light hearted play on words for those with a bit of imagination

Yeah, but Thailand is metres.  I doubt the article was written by a Yank.

The author of the article "Michael Arnold" must be from the land of the Yankee Doodle.

It might not be very busy for a while, especially when you can get cheap fakes. There is a fantastic soi near king chulalongkorn university which has loads of shop selling Nike, Puma, Adidas football shirts for 300 thb and less, excellent quality.

fake shirts are one thing but when you run in fake shoes your feet can tell the difference easily..

I wouldn't know, I don't run, just walk a leisurely pace in Vans and Converse.

Actually 3 backward countries do not use the metric system: Liberia in Africa, the US of America, and our good neighbor Burma.

 

So, given the proximity, maybe it was the influence of Burma that led to the use of this outdated measurement system.

 

One can't imagine Nike sending a telegraphic message from far far away Oregon for such a futile issue.

The metric system is used in most scientific applications in the US.  Also a metric equivalent is on most food items in the grocery stores.

 

Having watched Netflix series filmed in Canada there is still a lot of reference to imperial measurements there.  I have been to New Zealand and many still speak using miles to describe distance. 

 

In the UK people still talk of height in terms of feet and inches, distance in miles, volume in gallons, pints and half pints. Weight in terms of stones (talk about archaic).

 

Thailand uses rai for land measurements and a different calendar. 

 

Every country seems to have something archaic about it.  

 

My guess is this came from a press release from Nike.  It would be normal for a US company to release information to shareholders this way.

Certainly some confusion about who's using metric or imperial.

 

I seem to remember something about the Hubble Space telescope where the mirror was polished to the wrong system, imperial instead of metric or maybe the other way round, and that's why they had to go up and fix it to get those fantastic clear pictures that we see today.

What a <deleted> disappointment that "flagship" store is. It's big but they just have the same shoes displayed between 9 to 12 times on the display racks of each style. Would've thought they would display one shoe per display and have a wide range but they have hardly any stuff for sale there. Very disappointing indeed.
