'The Worst Kept Secret' unintentionally unveiled in tandem with one of basketball's biggest nights
NEW YORK, Nov. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- This year, Foot Locker is launching the "12 Days of Greatness," a unique basketball-inspired holiday collection celebrating universal love of the game. To bring 12 Days of Greatness to life, Foot Locker has teamed up with some of the best streetwear designers in and around basketball culture.
With much anticipation, Foot Locker kept its 12 Days of Greatness capsule collections under wraps as long as possible, but "The Worst Kept Secret" was blown today when designer Don C gifted four draft hopefuls – Cole Anthony, Anthony Edwards, Onyeka Okongwu and James Wiseman – with early access to Foot Locker exclusive apparel to wear on their big night.
Collaborating with some of the biggest names in streetwear, sneaker and basketball culture – including Waraire Boswell, Don C, Melody Ehsani, Montrezl Harrell, Kyle Kuzma, Sami Miro, PJ Tucker and Rhuigi Villaseñor – presents a unique set of challenges, as their products and collaborations are highly coveted. "The Worst Kept Secret," directed by Director X, illustrates the great lengths the designers went through to keep 12 Days of Greatness a covert project.
"This year we've re-imagined our holiday shopping experience to not only release the hottest footwear but offer our community unique apparel and accessories that speak to their interests in all things basketball and sneaker culture," said Richard McLeod, Vice President of Marketing for Foot Locker, North America. "12 Days of Greatness is an opportunity for us to celebrate our collective love of basketball and the culture that surrounds the game."
Each capsule collection will drop on one of 12 Days between Nov. 20 and Dec. 26. Featured designers include:
Rhude x Starter
PJ Tucker x Joe Perez
And 1 x Jeff Cole
Starter x Ty Mopkins
Live Life Nice
