It’s a Sneaker Thing for Back to School 2011

The integrated, multi-channel initiative behind It’s a sneaker thing demonstrates Foot Locker’s passion and devotion to all things sneakers.  It’s hard not to notice the implicit passion skillfully expressed in Foot Locker’s “It’s a Sneaker Thing” campaign this back-to-school season.  

The campaign in the U.S. kicks off with two spots, titled, “Wright Brothers” and “Newton.” Both feature students who have an incredible love for sneakers, so much so that they reinterpret famous moments in history.  Whether it’s the invention of “fly” by the Wright Brothers or the discovery of gravity’s effects by Sir Isaac Newton, sneakers are always the focal point. At the end of each spot, the student delivers a somewhat skewed report to his classmates, while the teacher (the iconic Foot Locker “striper”) looks on knowingly and proudly.
