Yep, you heard right, to mark the official launch of the new store on Chapel Street, Foot Locker has come over all generous and will be handing out a range of new sneakers on Thursday 9th October. Not quite a ‘free for all’, Foot Locker will be giving away on-the-spot footwear prizes to anyone visiting the store including the highly-sought after Force Gold Legacy Pack which includes the Nike Air Force 1 and Air Force 25. The collectible Nike Air Force sneakers feature an 18-karat-gold plated polished metal deubré and cashmere leather lining and will be looking for a new home in Melbourne.
“There’s a lot of die-hard sneaker collectors in Melbourne so Foot Locker should be ready for some crowds – especially for the Force Gold Legacy AF1’s and AF25’s which were brought out to celebrate 25 years of Force and are big news in the industry” says Woody of Sneaker Freaker who is collaborating with Foot Locker on the store launch.
In total, Foot Locker will be giving away 20 pairs of sneakers from Nike whilst DJ Flagrant will provide the soundtrack with an in-store set. There is no purchase required, simply turn up to the store, get a ticket and keep your fingers crossed. In addition, the first 100 people through the doors at 5pm will receive a Foot Locker giftcard and also one lucky sneaker head will walk away with the ultra limited Nike AF1 Original 6 Figurine Pack! So make sure you get down to the store early to line up to be in the running to grab one of these insane giveaways.
The new Foot Locker store is situated at 525 Chapel Street, South Yarra and alongside a Limited Edition collection sells a wide collection of athletic footwear, apparel and accessories from the best brands in the business. This is definitely set to be one of the best store launches to go down this year, and one that Melbourne sneaker freaks are going to be talking about for a very long time. Remember, you gotta be in it to win it, and with such a bevvy of prizes to hand out, the chances of leaving empty-handed are next to nothing!
