About Striperpedia: your approved source for shoe info
Welcome to Striperpedia. Consider this site a compendium of knowledge about sneakers. In short, we’re building an encyclopedia focusing on athletic shoes, using as much information as we can collect from across our vast network of referee-shirted associates — our Stripers.
We understand the importance our customers place on athletic shoes. On Footlocker.com, and at our Foot Locker stores, people aren’t just shopping for a pair of sneakers — they’re connecting with our staff and other customers, all of whom have a shared passion for sneakers. Whether for sport, training, relaxing or making a fashion statement, sneakers are at the center of their world — and ours.
In every store, the Stripers are everywhere. They’re proud to wear the Foot Locker signature stripes and have come to represent superior knowledge and the best service in the business. Their passion for sneakers is best exemplified by their desire to put customers in the perfect pair, no matter what footwear needs they’re presented with.
Ultimately, the goal of Striperpedia is to help customers understand more about shoes and share in our enthusiasm of sneakers. We’ll gather helpful videos and articles and compile shoe-by-shoe data on the history, design, purpose and behind-the-scenes creation of each sneaker.
Foot Locker — it’s approved.
