NEW YORK, Nov. 17, 2017 — Foot Locker (NYSE: FL) today announced an elevated partnership model with NIKE (NYSE: NKE). As part of Foot Locker's over-arching strategy to offer differentiated brand experiences and products, the two companies are again joining forces to offer industry-leading experiences to consumers through innovative in-store and pop-up opportunities.
The latest joint experience will come to life in New York in the form of a Sneakeasy – a window into what's next in NIKE and Jordan sneakers. The Sneakeasy NYC pop-up will unlock the magic of the sneaker hunt by serving the sneaker-obsessed consumer by offering a curated and coveted assortment of NIKE and Jordan products and services, exclusively in partnership with Foot Locker. Sneakeasy is scheduled to open at 30 Wall Street on Wednesday, Nov. 22, 2017, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and will remain open daily through Dec. 1.
Consumers can learn more about exclusive launches and events at Sneakeasy by following Foot Locker and Nike social channels and by joining Foot Locker's VIP loyalty program and the NIKE PLUS program for special member benefits. Submissions for the first Sneakeasy launch, the Special Field Air Force-1 Mid “OBJ” (retail price $160) open today via the Foot Locker App Launch Reservation system. Additional launches will drop throughout the week featuring new product assortments each day.
House of Hoops by Foot Locker is now offering consumers the opportunity to get the hottest NIKE and Jordan basketball sneakers, as seen straight off NBA courts around the country. As top athletes sport special colorways of NIKE basketball shoes in game, consumers can find these player edition sneakers exclusively at select House of Hoops locations as early as the following day. The NIKE Kyrie 3 “Luck” – worn by NBA star Kyrie Irving in last night's nationally televised game – launches today for $120 in limited quantities at the Washington Street House of Hoops in Boston and the House of Hoops Harlem Flagship.
Also as another of the several new elements elevating the consumer experience with NIKE, Foot Locker is hiring new experts, specially trained on NIKE in “NIKE Pro Athletes” and “NIKE Pro Leads” roles. These two new, full-time career opportunities were created by Foot Locker in partnership with NIKE to drive elevated customer experiences at Foot Locker by offering and sharing an emotional connection to the top NIKE products available in the market.
