Foot Locker said third quarter earnings were hurt by weak sales in the U.S., though vulcanized lifestyle shoes, including Converse styles, were a bright spot.

U.S. same-store sales declined in the low double digits, each region was weak, and product sales for both genders fell, with women’s sales more challenging than men’s.
