Foot Locker is showin’ the sneaker nation it’s got game! With the launch of the Sneakerpedia website, sneakerheads can get the 411 about the year a shoe was launched, its brand, type (basketball, running, etc.), the material it’s made of and the color. The entries also let users record their “personal sneaker stories” and look for related sneakers
Matt Powell, an analyst with SportsONESource, says, “the hope is, this will give them (Foot Locker) more street credibility. Foot Locker doesn’t get all the shoes out there, but this says ‘We get the culture.’”
