BK reported last year that the sneaker giant would be coming to Thailand in the first quarter of 2023
, but the rumors of the shop go back years. Now the word is that they will be opening their doors in September of this year.
The exact date is not yet known, but we do know the location: Siam Center. A representative from Siam Center confirmed with BK Magazine that the shop would be open in September, and Foot Locker Thailand is already hiring on their website.
Foot Locker is a world famous brand that will be dealing in international and even a few Thai brands to the a B30 billion market in Thailand. The arrival of the brick-and-mortar store means that the shop will also be bringing their wares to online shops throughout Thailand.
For sneakerheads, this is a big deal; Foot Locker brings all the big brands. It was originally announced that this venture would be a collaboration between Foot Locker and distributor MAPI (MAP Active Adiperkasa Ltd.), meaning, among others, shoppers can expect Adidas, Airwalk, Dr. Martens, and Nine West in addition to choice Jordans and limited edition colors and styles.
It's a good time to be a sneaker lover in Bangkok. Nike opened their largest ever flagship store in Central World in December last year
