Foot Locker – Edinburgh, Scotland
Stepping in the right direction with brick slips
With more than 2500 stores across the world, Foot Locker is a leading global athletic footwear and apparel retailer. With over 30 years retailing of Urban and popular footwear Foot Locker knows a thing or two about selling their products.
This brilliant case study showcases the urban interior of Foot Locker Edinburgh and highlights how real clay brick slips have helped to elevate the look and design.
Creating a store that is substantially urbanized in appearence and both trendy and inviting the designers chose to appeal to a cross section of the demographic.
We were delighted to see that real clay brick slips were used as a key design feature within the new store.
The designers had specified rich brickwork that would bring a unique Urban twist to the stores feel.
Powder coated steel fixtures were incorporated within the design bringing a great industrial feel throughout. Simple, spacious and urban are the key elements that went into this brief.
Everyone knows that first impressions in the retail world are critical to any shop layout. This is a store that specializes in a certain types of footwear and the design elements shout this from the moment you walk through the doors.
The designers took great care in exhibiting a whole range of installation and post installation methods, making the brick slips seem uniquely theirs. With both corners and large height walls the brick slips really do shine as the star of the show.
This is a store that has been designed by someone who really does take the product and the clientele to the very core of their theme. All in all consumers unfamiliar with the retailer get an immediate impression of what the store has to offer.
To achieve this look throughout a store the Olde Grange brick slips really do fit the bill. The Olde Grange have a rich and varied texture that lends itself fantastically to the desired urban look.
A splendidly versatile orange red brick the Olde Grange is a staple product in shop fit-outs and commercial brick cladding. Rumbled in appearance and containing subtle light tones the Olde Grange looks like it was made for any installation.
The Olde Grange is a brick slip that would suit this type of install well as it works wonderfully well with a multitude of colours and fixtures. Lending its backdrop to seasonal product changes.
Designing a retail interior in the 21st century requires a great effort. In order for Foot Locker to carry on growing at this impressive rate especially in today’s digital era they have really pulled out all the stops for the Edinburgh Store.
The installation tells their brand’s story and has created an immersive experience, the designers have put together head-turning product displays and utilised brick slip products to great enactment.(Larger images are available to the right side of this page)
