Last year, the Galaxy craze in Florida created national media attention due to the mass crowds that swarmed mall parking lots, forcibly causing select Foot Locker retailers in that region to cancel the release. This year, Foot Locker has taken extra precaution to ensure the safety of its customers and employees by setting some specific procedures regarding all the top-flight sneaker releases, starting with an Air Jordan IX ‘Cool Grey’ restock on Wednesday, ending with yet another restock of the Air Jordan III Retro ’88 on Sunday, and including all the All-Star footwear in-between. Remember, these rules and schedules apply ONLY to Foot Locker locations in the Houston area, so click below for full information.
