Foot Locker - Name Your 5
Brand activation


Ever since Foot Locker opened their first store in the late 70’s the brand has become intertwined with sneaker culture. To celebrate their 45th anniversary Foot Locker partnered with VIRTUE to reach sneakerfans all over the globe.

We commissioned 17 cultural shapers across Europe to create their own video, naming their top 5 sneakers of all time. Their videos were pushed through social media and called upon all sneaker fans across the world to post their own top five sneakers and ignite a worldwide conversation celebrating the greatest sneakers of all times using #NameYour5.

As result the campaign reached more than 40 million people across Europe and beyond with a  total of 164.000 engagements.
