Within footwear, the kids' business was stronger not just at Kids Foot Locker, but in almost all of our divisions that sell kids' merchandise. Jordan product, Adidas classics such as the Samoa, padded collar Chucks from Converse and Slides all had very strong gains. In men's footwear, basketball was once again the key driver. There were several Jordan Retro launches that pushed really well during the quarter. In addition, we had tremendous results in marquee players shoes, led by LeBron, we were happy to see get a ring and a gold medal, but also Kobe, Rose and Durant. The broader basketball business was very strong as well, as we continue to build on our leadership position in our biggest category with Nike, Jordan and Adidas.
