Air Jordan Achieves AR Engagement with Kivisense AR to Expand Awareness of The World of Flight Store Launch

Experience the intersection of innovation and style as Air Jordan collaborates with Kivisense AR to introduce an immersive AR engagement, expanding awareness of the highly anticipated launch of The World of Flight store.

Jordan Brand’s first high-end flagship store, WORLD OF FLIGHT, has officially opened in Beijing’s Sanlitun area in China. The brand aims to attract more foot traffic by using augmented reality (AR) to create buzz around the store. Themed around an “AR Flight Journey,” the store offers three different types of AR experiences, transforming the retail space into an artistic scene. This initiative not only sparks an engaging dialogue between the brand and street culture art but also allows consumers to perceive the uplifting charm of Jordan beyond themselves while exploring the new store.

WOF epitomizes JORDAN Brand’s visionary concept, seamlessly blending the ethos of basketball culture with an opulent retail experience. Following the illustrious footsteps of its predecessors in Milan, Tokyo’s Shibuya district, and Seoul’s vibrant Hongdae enclave, WOF now graces the landscape of China. Setting itself apart from other retailers in the region, this four-story, 1000-square-meter WOF store in Beijing pays homage to China’s rich history. From its ground floor adorned with indigenous architectural marvels like the timeless “Beijing bricks” to its historical exhibition walls chronicling the illustrious journey of JORDAN Brand, every corner exudes an aura of refined elegance. As patrons meander through corridors adorned with quintessential artistry, they’re not just shoppers; they’re connoisseurs of unparalleled retail opulence.

Beyond its homage to tradition, WOF beckons with a curated selection of bespoke creations, a collaboration between JORDAN Brand and local artisans, offering a tantalizing glimpse into the zeitgeist of contemporary Chinese youth culture. With services tailored for the discerning clientele, including bespoke product customization, expedited pickup options, and exclusive member-only events, WOF transcends the realm of mere commerce to become an immersive sanctuary of luxury and style.
