As Lotto celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, a collection of Lotto soccer and tennis footwear will be available at the omnichannel sporting goods retailer in the U.S. Dick’s will serve as the U.S. anchor retail partner for Lotto’s soccer and tennis products, which launched in select Dick’s retail locations and online.
