NEW YORK, Nov. 21, 2019 /CNW/ -- Foot Locker today announces this year's Week of Greatness campaign, "No Matter What," that features apocalypse-themed content highlighting the commitment within the sneaker community to do whatever it takes to get the latest product – no matter what the circumstances. Foot Locker's eighth-annual Week of Greatness once again delivers on its promise to offer the most highly anticipated product drops for men, women and kids.
"No Matter What," spotlights a lineup of top-tier talent across sports, entertainment, music and fashion for the full family.

Even the world's greatest athletes, artists and breakout stars understand what it means to get their hands on the latest drops. The featured talent enacts over-the-top scenarios that sneaker enthusiasts face, from unlikely alien encounters, zombie epidemics and meteor storms. "No Matter What" illustrates the universal truths and mutual passions shared amongst the sneaker community.
"The sneaker community is a passionate group that will go to great lengths to secure highly coveted kicks," said Patrick Walsh, Vice President of Marketing for Foot Locker, North America. "Week of Greatness is our opportunity to celebrate youth culture and acknowledge their dedication, in a fun and engaging way."
