Finish Line, Sean John Announce Sneak Peek Shoe Launch

The Finish Line, Inc. (NASDAQ: FINL) in collaboration with sportswear company Sean John announces the launch of the brand’s new casual athletic footwear line in select Finish Line stores and online at finishline.com, available now. Utilizing Finish Line’s integrated omni-channel strategy, customers will have sneak peek access to the latest Sean John product entering the market for the fall 2013 season.

“We are excited to partner with the Sean John brand as the largest athletic partner in the launch of this new footwear line,” said Ronnie Jefferson, vice president of lifestyle, kid’s footwear and accessories at Finish Line. “Sean Combs, through his namesake line, has cornered pop culture and solidified his brand name in the marketplace over the years by delivering on trend, fashion-forward and best-in-class product that crosses over to all ages and demographics as it relates to the consumer.”

“Designed as an extension of the Sean John lifestyle, this casual athletic line boasts great sneakers with clean, sophisticated styles to keep Finish Line customers fashionably in step with the sport of life,” said Jeff Tweedy, president of Sean John. “The footwear collection is an extension of the Sean John brand and complements the existing range of Sean John apparel and accessories.”

The Sean John collection retails from $60 to $90 at Finish Line. Men’s size ranges are available in athletic-inspired wing tips, boots and high tops. The collection features a refined yet sporty design which offers a sleek combination of runway style and the comfort of performance wear. In an innovative twist on the modern sneaker, this new Sean John product line is built to coordinate with everyday fashion, no matter what the occasion.

Finish Line’s integrated introduction of the Sean John casual athletic line will include in-store feature displays in select markets as well as targeted direct mail messaging aimed to drive awareness of the new footwear. Customers will have exposure to the full line through finishline.com as well as links to editorial and video content surrounding the brand story and its inspiration. For customers as stylish as Sean Combs, Finish Line will host a #DressLikeDiddy contest on Instagram in August 2013. One grand prize winner will be selected via a panel of Finish Line and Sean John judges to receive a new Sean John wardrobe.
