Area Visual Merchandising Manager - Footlocker - Kuwait
Foot Locker is constantly at work to make sure you stay ahead of your game. Our partnerships with the top players in the business mean we can offer you sneakers and apparel that you won't be able to find anywhere else.
With more exclusives than ever before, you will always get your hands on the latest in street style. Sometimes that means looking back to pay tribute to the all-time classics. Our "Hall of Fame" spotlights the brands and models that have changed the sneaker world forever. Where would we be today without the Nike Cortez, the adidas Stan Smith, the Puma Clyde or the Converse All-Star?
But we also understand that sneakers are just one element of your street style.
Foot Locker's rise to the top of the industry started more than 30 years ago as a bold experiment. In 1974, there were just three types of sneakers to choose from: tennis, basketball and running. The idea of an entire sneaker collection with various models in various types was truly revolutionary. But we spotted the potential and took the risk. Today, there are more than 2,500 Foot Lockers spread across the globe making us the world's leading sports-fashion retailer. http://www.footlocker.eu/eu/en/default.aspx
