👀 See the 8 most amazing sights at Nike’s new LeBron James Innovation Center

Earlier this year, I injured my knee. Pinpointing exact biomechanical issues in my body that brought me here have required months of doctors appointments, copays, and physical therapy. But at Nike’s new flagship design and research facility? They spotted my weaknesses in two minutes. The price of admission? Free. (But also, my data.)

This week, Nike is unveiling the LeBron James Innovation Center. It’s a 750,000 square foot facility that puts shoe designers, apparel creators, and Nike researchers all under the same roof. And Nike says its top floor—the new Nike Sport Research Lab—houses the most advanced sports research facility ever made. The building is a spectacle full of spectacles. However, the most exciting part about the facility is that 85% of the athletes that walk through its doors to be studied will be everyday people. See the highlights of the center here.
