“Nike’s involvement in SneakerFest, a movement created in 2020 is a major feat for all Nigerians at large and exhibits the level of growth and potential this somewhat unpopular sector holds. This further proves that Nigeria is a potential power player in the global sneaker culture and in no time we should see Nigerians creating for the global Sportswear giant, thanks to SneakerFest and also Nike’s presence in the Country through its flagship and value stores in Ikeja City Mall and Circle Mall at Ikeja and Lekki respectively”
