The latest in Nike's series of developments includes a new five-story SoHo store, and in adding to that, they've just announced the opening of their New York Made: Stanton Street Courts by KAWS. Designed by Brooklyn-based artist Brian Donnelly, the new street courts encompass two side-by-side basketball courts measuring 116 by 80 feet.

“My approach to the courts was very similar to how I would work on canvas. I wanted to create something that was true to my language, but also considerate of this being a court that people are playing on,” said KAWS. “I wanted to find the sweet spot where it works visually and functionally — how its broken up by the game’s lines and works with my images. It will have an intimate effect on the players that use the court.”

The new courts are part of a larger "New York Made" campaign, so be sure to stay tuned for more updates regarding the project.

If you're interested in checking out the court in person you can do so at Sara D. Roosevelt Park in Manhattan's Lower East Side.
