Sport with style
Be your passion, live your style
If sport is what you need and style is what you desire, then The Athlete’s Foot is where it’s at.
The Athlete’s Foot stores were designed to capture a pre-digital, traditional shopping experience that brings people back to the stores and allows them to interact with casual everyday products and brands firsthand.
Its customers are defined as active, digitally minded, globally oriented and fashion aware. This is aligned with the atmosphere that stores create and the service provided by the staff – displaying a passion for the products, knowledge of what is current and a sense of style.
The store interiors embody a vintage feel that is still modern and modular. The open and inviting space is lined with backlit shoe walls to keep the focus on the product while alluding to the hip attitude of vinyl record stores. It features unfinished wood paneling on the walls to give that “organized mess” feel and fresh vibe.
Vintage feel, modern look
