Cameron Anderson, who helped develop the Foot Locker chain while an executive with the Kinney Shoe Corp., died on June 11 at the age of 85.
Anderson, who lived in Allendale, NJ, spent 45 years with Kinney, according to an OBIT on northjersey.com.
Anderson is also a one-time member of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness. After he learned last year that he had lymphoma, he walked two miles a day at a local health club.
According to one published obituary, Anderson proved himself a seer in 1985 when The New York Times asked about trends in athletic footwear.
“Just supply enough Air Jordans,” he said, referring to the Nike brand endorsed by Michael Jordan, then a Chicago Bulls rookie. “It’s going to be one of the biggies.”
