Martial and Bale: When football and fashion come together

FASHION FORWARD: Anthony Martial

THEY’RE KNOWN for their skills on the pitch, but footballers Anthony Martial ad Gareth Bale are proving they have just as much finesse when it comes to fashion.

Manchester United star and French international, Martial, has joined forces with Wales’ star man Bale for Footlocker’s summer campaign, titled All Fans, which kicks off this Friday (July 10).

Shot in their football hometowns of Madrid and Manchester, the hilarious films show the players interacting with fans, who are not only football fans but, above all else, sneaker fans.

In one scene, striker Martial mistakenly attempts to autograph a fan’s sneaker, much to his surprise the fan wrestles the shoe back off him.

In another, Bale’s biggest fan fails to even recognise the Welsh superstar at all, having been totally mesmerised by the sneaker of his dreams.

As an extension of the campaign Anthony Martial also took on Footlocker’s Sneaker or Keeper test, challenging the French striker to identify the names of classic sneakers from European football keepers.

Foot Locker’s summer collection is available to shop both instore and online at footlocker.eu ./b>
