Back in the early to mid-2000’s Foot Locker had a seasonal promotion just in time for upcoming school year, that I wish was still around, the ever so popular “Pick 2 For $89”. The sneakers that were part of this promotion were the classic sneakers from adidas, New Balance, Reebok, K-Swiss and PUMA. The discounted models from each brand happen are the 574 from New Balance, Samoa & Superstar adidas, PUMA Roma & Basket, Reebok Classic Leather and The Tennis Classic by K-Swiss. Of course the promotion helped move units, but consequently it did weaken the consumer’s “value” of the brands.


Fast forward to 2016 and according to the site Dollar Times. The $89.99 promo in 2005, with a 2.00% inflation would equal to $111.85 in today’s dollars so we can round let’s say $120. For that price we’re gonna find some affordable sneakers that could be part of a Back-to-School promotion for those budget conscious shoppers. We’re putting together a list of sneakers that could be part of a 2 for $120 promotion.

The average consumer loves deals! And to find classic sneakers on a budget you really can’t go wrong with these sneakers.
