This direct engagement with consumers allowed our business in China to return to growth in Q4. Digital grew 53%, outpacing the industry, and the Nike app which launched in Q3 is already resonating with consumers with nearly 11 million downloads, driving over 10% of total digital demand in the fourth quarter. Weeks I longed for to get back out on the road, get back out in the market, get back out with consumers. For example, in March and April, China’s monthly active users on the Nike Trending app increased over 350% since the beginning of the calendar year. Given the uncertainty that still remains we will not be providing specific guidance. Your next question is from Bob Drbul with Guggenheim. I guess if you look across the suite of apps in your own dot-com, where did you see the highest uptick of new customers, if each of you can share a little bit more about what you saw from that as well? And so we feel very good about the actions that we've taken. And then we think there's an incremental opportunity in the market and a need to provide a mono-brand experience, particularly around Women's and Apparel. That’s coming again, I know, but I got to see firsthand the power of those mono-brand stores, and so we’ll be opening somewhere between 150 and 200 new stores. Following the news release, NIKE management will host a … Q4 2020 Nike Inc Earnings Call. Before I get into our Q4 performance, I want to take a moment to acknowledge the environment in the U.S. right now. As we have said before, supply and demand management is critical to sustaining a healthy premium brand, and over the past three years we have enhanced our capabilities to manage through situations like this. Is there any constraints that will — from a capacity perspective that will slow the company’s growth to you getting the e-commerce to be 50% of the total business going forward? And in terms of acquiring new members in a quarter we had a phenomenal quarter, 25 million new members registered, that's up over 100%. These intentional organizational focuses will touch every area of our business, including innovation, product creation, marketing, merchandising and distribution. We also launched Space Hippie in our international geographies during June, with early success offering even more proof of global consumer appetite for sustainable product. So today, we’re announcing a new digitally empowered phase of our Consumer Direct strategy, the Consumer Direct Acceleration. But as I said in my prepared remarks, we expect to see sequential improvement relative to what we delivered in Q4 as we move quarter-by-quarter through the first half. You're seeing during the pandemic, and we believe it will continue, they want to buy it on their digital device and go pick it up in the store, or with soft goods like apparel they may want to reserve it online and try it on in the store. What’s the level that you faced in the fourth quarter, obviously pretty significant, how do we think about those line items in the first quarter and as fiscal 2021 evolves? And they were working, frankly, when we came into the pandemic and the pandemic in many ways was a stress test for them and it really proved that our current strategy is working. And in particular, we said our first and primary principle was to get inventory clean in the marketplace as fast as we possibly can, and so we now feel confident based upon the actions that we’ve taken that we will have inventory rightsized and clean by Q2 or in Q2, and in China, as I referenced, given they faced the pandemic a little bit earlier, they’re going to clear and come out of the situation from an inventory perspective by the end of June. And though we can't predict short-term trends due to the dynamic nature of this pandemic, interestingly enough, we can now see our brand's long-term future even more clearly. Take care and stay safe. Digital grew nearly 100% with continued brand momentum and significant new member acquisition and engagement across the Nike Training Club and the Nike Running Club apps with active new member growth of over 200% and more than 18 million workouts logged in the quarter. They may want to be in a store and buy something that is not in the store because of inventory and the associate uses a digital device to buy it and gets shipped home. The strength of our brand, our deep connections to consumers and our unmatched product innovation give us an advantage to create and define our future. Your line is open. We also edited product lines by up to 15% to improve SKU productivity. As we look at opportunities to build deeper and more meaningful relationships with consumers, our vision is to create a clear and connected digital marketplace to match. Our next question is from Erinn Murphy with Piper Sandler. However, Nike Digital grew 80% and the Nike app grew triple-digits and now represents 30% of our North America digital business. And as we look to the future while we will accelerate investment against the areas that I referenced, we also see equal opportunity for us to shift resources that sit in our P&L in legacy forms which we can redeploy against the future, and so that’s going to be our focus as we look towards the future. Traffic levels, conversion trends and consumer shifts toward digital are similar to what we are seeing in North America, and as of today, approximately 90% of Nike-owned stores are open. In Q4, we saw strong demand for the Pegasus 37, particularly with women, and for the Air Max 2090, a new sportswear silhouette that reimagines the future of Air. So I guess a long way of saying that we feel confident that we can continue to meet this digital demand and our team continues to be able to expand capacity without it compromising our cost per-unit. Our innovation teams designed and delivered personal protective equipment to health systems across the country. Nike, Inc. (NYSE:NKE) Q4 2020 Earnings Conference Call. And in fiscal year ’20, SNKRS reached an impressive milestone reaching $1 billion in global demand for the first time. Welcome to Nike, Inc.'s Fiscal 2020 Fourth Quarter Conference Call. First, a recovery period, including the ramp up of store reopenings. Good afternoon, everybody. Next question, please? North America, EMEA and the remainder of APLA are still in the recovery period as stores began to reopen throughout May and early June. And though we can’t predict short-term trends due to the dynamic nature of this pandemic, interestingly enough, we can now see our brand’s long-term future even more clearly. Let me break it down for you a little bit. As you know, Nike has always tried to carefully manage supply and demand, and as a premium brand, we maintain our premium nature because we try to optimize a full-price marketplace across our channels season after season after season and so when the pandemic hit it became clear that there was going to be excess inventory for a period of time and we pulled many of the levers that we have at our disposal in order to be aggressive in addressing this issue.
