FA Cup Finalists step out in Hotter
FA Cup finalists Wigan Athletic FC will have a spring in their step on the road to Wembley as they step out in Hotter shoes on Saturday.

Each player will be wearing smart Hotter Town shoes as they check out the pitch before the historic match for the Lancashire team. The club contacted the UK's biggest shoe maker, whose factory is near to the DW stadium, for help to find the perfect men's shoes to complete their pre-match suits; with Manager Roberto Martinez testing out several pairs before making his final selection.

"The Wigan Athletic story has captured everyone's imagination and we're really happy to have the support of a prestigious footwear company like Hotter," said Mr Martinez. "I was surprised and delighted at how light the shoes were and they were comfortable as soon as I put them on - let's hope they can bring us luck on the day."

Having being told that Mr Martinez's favourite shoe colour is brown, and having an aptly named men's shoe in the collection, Hotter also sent each player an additional pair of ‘Defender' shoes to wish them good luck for the game.

"We've been working hard to develop our men's range of footwear and it is fantastic to hear the comments of such a respected football manager - who it turns out is also a shoe fan," said Hotter Managing Director Peter Taylor. "We've always said that our men's collection offers shoes for every occasion, it never occurred to us that the occasion could be the FA Cup Final!"
