Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

Genesco Inc. announces plans for Hal N. Pennington, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, and James S. Gulmi, Senior Vice President-Finance and Chief Financial Officer, to make a presentation on the Company at Wachovia Securities’ 15th Annual Nantucket Equity Conference at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, June 29, 2005. A live audio feed of the presentation will be accessible on the Internet through the Company’s website at

The presentation is currently planned to include a confirmation that management remains comfortable with the Company’s previously announced earnings expectations for the quarter ending July 30, 2005, and for the fiscal year ending on January 28, 2006.

This disclosure contains forward-looking statements, including those regarding the Company’s earnings outlook and all other statements not addressing solely historical facts or present conditions. Actual results could vary materially from the expectations reflected in those statements. A number of factors could cause differences, including weakness in consumer demand for products sold by the Company, fashion trends that affect the sales or product margins of the Company’s retail product offerings, changes in the timing of holidays or in the onset of seasonal weather affecting period to period sales comparisons, changes in buying patterns by significant wholesale customers, disruptions in product availability or distribution, unfavorable trends in foreign exchange rates and other factors affecting the cost of products, changes in business strategies by the Company’s competitors (including pricing and promotional discounts), the ability to open, staff and support additional retail stores on schedule and at acceptable expense levels and to renew leases in existing stores on schedule and at acceptable expense levels, variations from expected pension-related charges caused by conditions in the financial markets, and the outcome of litigation and environmental matters involving the Company. Forward-looking statements reflect the expectations of the Company at the time they are made. The Company disclaims any obligation to update such statements.
