    The best way to do this is present the information as a SWOT analysis. Strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.

    So some things you might consider

    Strengths,
    in line with current business, staff already 'talk' about this market

    weaknesses,
    large initial cash outlay to have stock as you need to have stock for many sizes and makes.
    storage will cut down selling area,
    needs different display to sportwear - another cash outlay.

    opportunities
    new market for you, and may increase foot fall because of people looking for sports shoes, hence may sell more sportswear and accessories.

    threats
    a saturated market, many stores including supermarkets stock sport shoes.
