Foot Locker reported fourth-quarter comparable-store sales decreased 1.6%.
"While we had leading positions in key on-trend footwear styles, this was not enough to offset softer than expected demand during the compressed holiday season, a very promotional marketplace for apparel, and tougher launch comparisons," said Richard Johnson, CEO of Foot Locker.
