Nicklas Bendtner made a little piece of football history earlier this season when he became the first player to wear pink boots during a game.

Here, in an exclusive interview on Arsenal TV Online, the Danish striker explains how this fashion landmark came about and reveals the part he played in Nike's unusual design.

Nicklas discusses:

  • the story behind the pink boots
  • his influence on the design
  • the 'feminine' colour
  • why you need to be confident to wear them
  • the reaction to them
  • the stick he received from his team-mates
