When you open up a new store on one of the biggest shopping streets in the world, you have to go hard or go home. So when Foot Locker made the move to 34th Street in Manhattan, you knew it was going to be a top-of-the-line location. For starters, the spot is divided into two sections; a Foot Locker on the first floor and a House of Hoops on the second. Being in close proximity to Madison Square Garden, you can expect that HoH to be a hotbed for sneaker releases in the future.
Next, they decided to open the joint by re-releasing some of the most popular sneakers that have dropped in recent memory. Try "Cool Grey Air Jordan Retro 11, "Cement Grey" Retro 3, "Playoff" Retro 13, the Questlove Dunk Pack, Black History Month Pack and essentially every Zoom Kobe VI, LeBron 8 and Foamposite that has released in that last couple of months. Not a bad way to get things started.
