If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense
and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following

[X]     (a)     The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this

[X]     (b)     The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition

State below in reasonable detail why the Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, N-SAR,
or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the
prescribed time period.

In response to a comment letter from the Securities and Exchange Commission
(the "SEC"), Foot Locker, Inc. (the "Company") and its independent auditors are
currently in technical discussions with the staff of the SEC regarding the
classification of its results related to the Company's disposition of its
former Northern Group operation.  The basis of the technical discussions
concerns the classification of previously reported results within discontinued
operations as opposed to continuing operations.  In a discussion with the SEC
on May 1, 2003, the SEC stated that it may require the Company to reclassify
certain results with regard to the disposition of the Northern Group business.
The Company, its independent auditors, and the SEC are continuing to discuss
this matter.  The Company expects to conclude these discussions with the SEC in
a timely manner.  As a result, it has not been possible without unreasonable
effort or expense for the Company to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K
for the 2002 fiscal year, which is due on May 2, 2003.  Upon resolution of
these discussions, the Company will file its Form 10-K for the 2002 fiscal
year, which the Company expects will be on or before the fifteenth calendar day
following the prescribed due date for the report.
