Foot Locker Kicksmas Preview Event Recap


Last night, Foot Locker hosted an exclusive event at the Maritime Hotel in New York City, previewing all the hottest sneakers set to hit retail shelves in the coming months. Withe DJ Clark Kent spinning and drinks flowing, those in attendance got familiar with “Kicksmas,” Foot Locker’s six-week long sneaker roll-out in anticipation of the ’12 holidays. A live in-house Twitter feed featuring tweets with a #Kicksmas hashtag played on loop, and one lucky raffle winner went home with a limited edition “Black Pack.” So, what is the Black Pack?

It’s a 10-sneaker collection of black-on-black colorways, modeled in some of the season’s coldest kicks, from the LeBron 9 to the Hyperfuse 2011 to the Jordan 3 Retro Cement. You can find images of each piece of the Black Pack above, and Foot Locker is the spot to pick them up once they drop. Because Kicksmas is not a day, it’s not an event. It’s six weeks of big-time sneaker releases. Or, perhaps more likely, six weeks to add to your wish list.

Be sure to follow Foot Locker on Twitter for all your #Kicksmas news, updates and release information. And from all of us at SLAMonline, have a happy holidays!
