Black Friday & Cyber Monday

Black Friday is a big old event at Foot Locker. They have a big sale with lots of trainers and clothing with up to 50% off.

Plus on Cyber Monday there was a promo code to get 25% off EVERYTHING, so worth holding on for.

5. Store Overview & Buyers Guide

Retailer Foot Locker is an American footwear and sportswear company with its headquarters based in Manhattan, New York.

Stocking the best and most premium sports brands from the US and beyond, Foot Locker has over 3,000 retail shops across the world. The majority of these are in North America, but in Europe there’s over 650 stores spanning 20 countries, with a growing presence in the UK.

Physical bricks-and-mortar stores aside, the Foot Locker website stocks thousands of lines of shoes, trainers, apparel and accessories. In the US, there’s also a direct-to-customer catalogue business, but this has yet to make it across the pond to the UK. Elsewhere in the world, there’s even standalone Foot Locker Kids and Ladies Foot Locker stores for single-theme product ranges.

Almost 70% of products stocked by Foot Locker are from sports giant Nike, but there’s plenty of other American and European brands to choose from too; including Adidas, Puma, Reebok, ASICS, New Balance, Vans, Timberland and Converse. Essentially any big-name sports retailer can be found in a Foot Locker store, with the label often getting exclusive collections and releases before anyone else, making it a must-visit amongst sneaker fans worldwide.

The all-American branding including staff in black-and-white stripes echoing the logo seems salt-of-the-earth Yankee-style-soccer-Mom-esque, but in reality, the customer base of Footlocker are young adults with a taste for trainers that spans on and off the sports pitch. The brand doesn’t advertise much in the UK (yet), but their US marketing has drawn controversy for featuring hip hop, violence, people blindfolded and references back to sex and pleasure. This brash approach makes for a popular approach with students and young adults.

Foot Locker’s focus is less on actual sporting shoes and equipment and more on sports-inspired fashion footwear. A release calendar details the upcoming collection and style schedule from the world’s leading brands, and an exclusive range combines shoes, accessories and garments that are only available through Foot Locker retail centres.

If you don’t have a Foot Locker shop near you, fear not. The website ships to mainland UK using UPS for a fixed £5 fee, or free for purchases over £60 (which is easily achieved when buying such premium brands). Yes, we know everyone hates couriers, but UPS are pretty good as they go, and you can expect your parcel within just 3 business days – with no funny business! Your order can be tracked online and, if you’d prefer, you can pick up from a shop.

Foot Locker is an all-American footwear champ, and you can shop assured that the merchandise you’ll be buying from them is of the highest quality. It’s not the cheapest, but keep an eye on the Sale section of their website – from time-to-time you’ll be able to find some real bargains un-sold in British stores.

Top Student Buy: Crep Protect Crep Eraser Shoe-care Pack – £8.99

A unisex shoe-care kit for all trainers, this handy carry-size product allows you to easily remove scuffs and marks from sneakers whenever they show up; leaving you with shoes that look brand spanking new. Simply rub the eraser gently over suede or nubuck materials, and it’ll smooth over the mark and remove it without causing any further damage to the shoe. It’s made of a rubber and leather blend that picks up and smooths out any scuffs easily and fast. You’ll soon wonder how you ever lived without it!

Top Student Buy: Adidas Trefoil Unisex Drawstring Slouch Bag – £16.99

Easy-to-use and conveniently sized drawstring bags available in a range of Adidas colours, shades and designs, these bags are something everyone should have at least one of in the cupboard! Commonly known as a ‘gym sack’, these bags are ideal for shoving clothes or supplies into in a hurry and are waterproof, so you can include wet laundry or swimming items as required without assuming your bag will end up damaged or smelly. When empty, they crumple into nothing more than a handful and so make for a great addition to any shopping trip to avoid forking out for a plastic carrier.

Top Student Buy: Sofsole Airr Cup Heel Insoles – £12.99

Made with a revolutionary lightweight polymer gel known as Sof Gel, these insoles can be popped into the heels of any shoes to give extra comfort and to support the heel through high-impact or long-length of wear. The small capsules within the insoles absorb shocks to convert them into kinetic energy, and the material wicks away sweat and moisture. The gel diffuses impact to avoid injury. ‘Cupping’ the heel, your foot will be well grounded within your shoe and cradled in.

History of the Company

Foot Locker began life back in 1963 as a newly opened subsidiary of the FW Woolworth Company, which had just acquired the Kinney Shoe Corporation. The new acquisition was branched out into a range of specialist shoe stores, of which Foot Locker was one. Foot Locker was the most successful of all the brands trialled, and so when the wider FW Woolworth department store business and other subsidiaries began to fail, it moved instead towards athletic retail; buying up Champion Sports and renaming itself Woolworth Athletic Group.

In the 90s, the group went on to buy a leading US athletic-catalogue business, and by 1998, all other original Kinney Shoe Corporation brand and stores were closed. The group rebranded again as Foot Locker Inc, and the brand grew throughout the globe, eying global domination in the sportswear and footwear markets as part of youth culture.

Still steadily rising in the Fortune 500 rank, Foot Locker now has thousands of stores worldwide and is well-reputed as an exclusive retailer for a number of brands and sneaker lines, gaining a cult-like following amongst footwear fans.
