The Foot Locker House of Hoops name rings bells in every sneaker lover’s ear. Everybody would love for their city to have a House of Hoops that they can call their own, but so far, only a few places have been able to see that dream become a reality. Houston, Texas has now seen that dream materialize with the grand opening of not one, but two House of Hoops locations.
The first location (Galleria Mall), saw a packed and energetic grand opening event, which featured a Q&A section with Houston Rockets newly-acquired small forward Trevor Ariza. After that, Hip Hop legend Bun B was the master of ceremonies as he presented the Nike and Foot Locker outstanding player of the year awards to two of Houston’s top high school basketball players.
The second location (Northline Mall) saw an equally-packed and up-beat event. However, this location featured a very informative Q&A from the Rockets point guard Aaron Brooks. After Aaron answered questions from the audience, he then added details about his on-court shoe for the 2009-2010 NBA season, the Nike Cradle Low.
With that said, click here to see a few pics from the events.
