Set to open later this month, the 3,000 sq ft unit will be located on Jubilee Walk and offer the brand’s latest collection of shoe and clothing collections from top brands including Adidas, Converse and Nike.

Established in 1974 in California, the brand’s stores are instantly recognisable for its black-and-white striped staff uniforms which make employees look like sports referees.

And its athletic- inspired proposition is thriving thanks to the rise of the streetwear and activewear trends, sending sales at the company surging to a record $7.94 billion in 2018.

In the UK, Foot Locker operates more than 70 locations, including dedicated children’s stores and a flagship store in London.

Commenting on Foot Locker’s imminent arrival in Solihull, Guy Thomas, head of retail at Lendlease, said: “As one of the key global players in the sportswear sector, and at the forefront of trainer culture, Foot Locker is set to be a strong addition to the footwear line-up at Touchwood.

"Foot Locker will strengthen the urban retail mix within the centre, and we look forward to welcoming the sports brand in November.”
