Foot Locker Owns 34th Street

Just like Amar'e owns the court...
Hyperbole in titles, yes, and fitting as this Saturday, in the new House of Hoops by Foot Locker on 34th Street, New York Knicks savior Amar'e Stoudemire will be in attendance to celebrate the opening of this gorgeous new store:

My little family celebrated Foot Locker on 34th Street by visiting yesterday evening. We had a stack of gift cards burning holes in our pockets, thanks to Christmas gifts and Melissa of Foot Locker (thanks, Melissa!). And while House of Hoops was on our agenda, we first visited the flagship store down the street because we needed baby kicks. 120 W. 34th has a Kids Foot Locker. Unfortunately, by the time I got running shoes and my husband got running shoes, Baby Herald was screaming, tearing rows of baby kicks off the wall, and screaming. Did I mention she was screaming? She has a very high-pitched scream. It's quite impressive, especially when you're on a plane or in a store or any public space anywhere.

So we never made it to the new House of Hoops. And we didn't get any baby kicks. But the husband got a lightweight Saucony Kinarva running shoe ($90), and I got the Asics GT-2160 ($100) at Lady Foot Locker. I love how Asics fit my foot, and I think this is his first Saucony. It's a lightweight shoe, so I'm curious to see how they stand up to his abuse. And the screaming baby? I'll leave her home on Saturday when I visit Amar'e at the HOH grand opening. Be sure to go here for more information on all the opening day festivities.
