Many sneakerheads have heard stories of the wonders found inside the Nike Employee Store, but not many have been lucky enough to actually see it for themselves. Located near the Nike campus in Beaverton, Oregon, the Employee Store is a cavernous airplane hanger-sized structure containing wall to wall Nike goodness. At a glance, the layout appears to be a larger version of a Nike Outlet, but the products inside are far from your typical outlet selection. You won’t necessarily find all the latest Quickstrikes and limited releases, but you will find most of Nike’s current releases at close to 50% off their retail price. Unless you’ve got some friends or family within the Nike ranks, you may never get to visit in person, but thanks to these pics, you can see for yourself what it’s like inside the legendary Nike Employee Store.
