Project Description


“We really wanted to provided a type of museum for shoes. We want you to be able to experience the culture.”

Matt Caputo, Owner

A new retailer in Detroit, NoJo Kicks specializes in ultra high-end sneakers and apparel.  NoJo Kicks offers overs a unique shopping experience.  NoJo is not designed to be a typical shoe store.  A 40-foot stainless steel wall right across from the checkout counter displays the extensive shoe collection, while several top-notch sneakers are presented in glass cases throughout the store.

Suspended steel tubing overhangs the upstairs loft that features several leather couches and chairs that customers can try shoes on or sit and watch TV.  About 30 rare jerseys, hats and plaques provide vintage decor for the store.

NoJo’s is the first of several new retail spots to open in “The Z” parking garage and retail development building, also designed by Neumann/Smith and developed by Bedrock Real Estate Services.
