FRESH FOOTBALL GEAR
By Sam Higgins, 15 August 2017
Whether your kickabouts involve sweatshirts for goalposts or are serious Sunday League stuff, we now have the sartorial tools to get you involved in the beautiful game. From bold football boots to technical threads, we’ve got the kit to help you look as good on the pitch as off it this season.
To kick things off, adidas has brought the classic three stripes and wearable, retro design to footballers everywhere through its Tango line. Although its eccentrically patterned, neon-striped AstroTurf trainers are best worn in action, you can easily see its navy top with geometric print on a budding street-styler at the next set of Fashion Week shows. As we approach the end of summer, the collection’s minimalist joggers and track jackets come into their own and take you from match to meal without anyone batting a eyelid.
PUMA’s football offering is typical from the sportswear brand, blending minimalist designs and shapes with injections of bold vibrancy. This can be seen on the lining of the track jackets, the soles of the simple, slick, boots and on every logo that adorns its monochrome pieces. Less a riff on playing kit, more street-ready sportswear that’s perfect for whatever form of football you play.
