The Sneakeasy NYC will offer a curated and coveted assortment of Nike and Jordan products and services, in exclusive and to all sneaker-obsessed consumers. Sneakeasy is scheduled to open at 30 Wall Street on the 22nd of November 2017, from 11 am to 5 pm, and will remain open daily through the 1st of December.

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. Consumers can find these player edition sneakers exclusively at select House of Hoops locations as early as the following day.

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.
