    • A strong one-two punch from Nike and Finish Line bodes well for other companies selling athletic footwear, note retail insiders.
    • The strong reports from the two mirror recent data from NPD Group and other research firms indicating demand from the key millennial demographic is thriving.
    • While skimping in some retail categories, millennials have shown a propensity to spend on shoes.
    • The shoe trend has extended beyond the basketball and running categories to sandals, boots, and even slippers. Pricing levels in the sector have been positive as promotional activity is only at moderate levels due to the sustained demand.
    • Previously: Global futures at Nike top expectations (Jun. 25 2015)
    • Previously: More on Finish Line's FQ1 (Jun. 26 2015)
    • On watch: FL, HIBB, DKS, GCO, CA formerly Brown Shoe Group, SKX, CROX, DECK.
