Foot Locker is an American sportswear and footwear retailer, with its headquarters in New York City, and operating in 28 countries worldwide.
Although established in 1974, and founded as a separate company in 1988, Foot Locker is a successor corporation to the F. W. Woolworth Company (“Woolworth’s”), as many of its freestanding stores were former Woolworth’s locations. The company operates the eponymous “Foot Locker” chain of athletic footwear retail outlets, and other athletic-based divisions including Champs Sports, Footaction USA, House of Hoops, and Eastbay/Footlocker.com, which owns the rights to Final Score. The company is also famous for its employees’ uniforms at its flagship Foot Locker chain, resembling those of referees.
According to the company’s filings with the SEC, as of January 28, 2017, Foot Locker, Inc. had 3,363 primarily mall-based stores in the US, Canada, Europe, and Asia. Nearly 70% of its product is from Nike.
