NEW YORK, Dec. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Foot Locker today announced its exclusive lineup of hot December drops from Nike, featuring iconic lifestyle sneakers with the launch of "Home & Away," as well as the extension of the "Discover Your Air" campaign featuring the 20th anniversary of the Tuned Air silhouette.
First, to celebrate the vibrant sneaker communities in the cities of Houston, Atlanta and Miami, Foot Locker and Nike are launching the "Home & Away" collection, which features Nike Air Max 95, Air Force 1 Hi, Air Force Low and Air Max Plus/97 colorways that celebrate each of the three featured cities and what makes them unique.
Each shoe has an exclusive "Home" and "Away" colorway that embody each city. Foot Locker and Nike also tapped notable musicians and athletes to bring this campaign to life and represent their respective cities through exclusive digital content, with Denzel Curry and Hassan Whiteside for Miami, Maxo Kream and Dallas Keuchel for Houston and YFN Lucci and Calvin Ridley for Atlanta.
Foot Locker is also teaming up with Maxo Kream to celebrate his hometown love of Houston through a series of giveback moments to energize the community, ranging from schools to barber shops. The artist will unveil these special moments to his city in real-time on his social channels on Dec. 5 and 6.
The "Home" shoes will be exclusively dropping in their respective markets and online on Thursday, Dec. 6, followed by the "Away" drop – available in home markets, select cities and online – on Saturday, Dec. 22. The energy will continue in early 2019 with the expansion of the Home & Away concept featuring new cities and silhouettes.
