FRESH SOCCER GEAR
By Sam Higgins, August 15, 2017
Whether your soccer games involve sweatshirts for goalposts or serious team stuff, we now have the sartorial tools to get you involved in the beautiful game. From bold footwear to technical threads, we’ve got the 'fit to help you look as good on the field as off it this season.
To kick things off, adidas has brought the classic three stripes and wearable, retro design to players everywhere through its Tango line. Although its eccentrically patterned, neon-striped AstroTurf sneakers 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 game to meal without anyone batting an eyelash.
PUMA’s soccer 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 gear, more street-ready sportswear that’s perfect for whatever form of soccer you play.
