Nike has launched a project that aims to create its own social shopping niche outside the bounds of TikTok and Instagram.

According to Yahoo Finance, the company has recently set up a landing page for what its dubbed 'Nothing but Gold', an app in aimed at young women shoppers. The project is making an attempt to build something of a Nike community among the group. According to the landing page, the app will present a mix of 'sport, style, and self care', but gives little other detail. 

Although a Nike representative could not be reached for comment on the new app, a recent job posting for the app gives some hints that Nike is looking to create a branded space that operates similarly to the social media platforms Generation Z is already using to browse and shop, namely Instagram and TikTok.The posting explains that Nothing but Gold is an outgrowth of Valiant Labs, Nike’s business incubator segment, started in 2018. 

Furthermore, the shopping app marks one of the group’s first public launches in its almost three years of existence. It also claims that the group is now 'tasked with creating the future of shopping for girls' and that Nothing but Gold is a 'native mobile app that takes social commerce in-house' for Nike.
