With the holidays well and truly upon us, the expectations for gift giving have never been higher. So what do you get the soccer lover in your life? We’ve gone through all the latest and greatest products of 2017 to bring you our best 11. Whatever your budget and whoever they are, we’ve got something that will make their eyes light up. Without further ado, we present……THE BEST 11 of 2017:
1. adidas 2018 World Cup Ball
This is the ball you will see all the best players in the world making memories with at the 2018 World Cup. As an added bonus, NFC technology actually allows you to interact with the ball using your smart phone and unlock challenges and giveaways all the way up to the World Cup. How’s that for a gift that keeps on giving?!
2. Hero Kits
We are lucky enough to be alive while 2 of the greatest to ever play are setting records that may never be broken. A hero jersey always goes down well with a fan and even more so when it’s got their favorite player’s name on the back. You can even customize it with any name and number you want. The possibilities are endless.
3. Adidas Predator 18+ FG
A legend has returned! The Predator is one of the most iconic cleats of all time and returns with modern technology and upgrades ideal for the players of today. With the ultra comfy boost sole, controlskin upper, and laceless knit midfoot design, these are game changers the player in your life is sure to love.
4. Adidas Tiro Pant
Whether you’re warming up, lounging around, or dressing sporty for the day, the Tiro pant fits the bill. With a tapered lower leg and slim fit, you’ll look the part on and off the pitch. Perfect for the fan, player, or anyone who likes to be comfortable! You won’t hear any complaints when you give these.
5. Pugg Goals
What player doesn’t want a soccer field in their back yard? If you don’t have a spare acre of land laying around, these PUGG goals will turn even the most modest of spaces into a game ready field. They fold away nicely into a carry bag so you can take the game wherever you want.
6. G-Form Shin Guards
Finally there is such thing as a modern shin guard. After years of uncomfortable plastic shin guards that move around, G-Form have solved the problem with their Pro-S Shin Guards. Sewn onto a moisture wicking compression sleeve, these guards are completely soft and flexible and only harden on impact. Not only do they protect well, they are NOCSAE approved, unbelievably comfortable, and machine washable. You won’t go back to hard shell guards after these.
7. Nike Mercurial Vapor
It’s hard to beat a classic and the Mercurial Vapor has won over millions of players since Brazilian Ronaldo first debuted them in 1998. Ultra lightweight and giving players a fantastic feel for the ball, players like Eden Hazard, Neymar, and Cristiano Ronaldo can all attest to just how good these cleats are. It’s hard to see any player being disappointed with a new pair of Mercurial Vapors.
8. Mini Soccer Ball
“Don’t play with the ball in the house!” Well how about just this one time? Mini soccer balls are the perfect gift for the player or fan in your life who just can’t seem to resist seeing how many juggles they can do near the most breakable items in the house.
9. Reusch Goaliator Pro Ortho-Tec GK Gloves
They’ve been good all year, so make sure to remember the goalkeeper in your life. Nothing feels like a new pair of goalkeeper gloves. These Reusch Goaliator Pros are some of the most popular around with a breathable backhand AirVentSystem, G1 ultra soft foam palms for the best grip and impact dampening, and Wrist Bandage Cuff plus technology to support your wrists without limiting mobility. Diving finger tip saves never felt so good!
10. Licensed Team Hoodies
Temperatures may be dropping, but passion for your team stays red-hot. Help the soccer fan in your life rep their team and stay warm all at once with a licensed team hoodie.
11. Field Player Gloves
Your feet are what matters in soccer, but cold hands in winter are never fun. Nike Hyper Warm field player gloves give a breathable, but insulated warmth so players can focus on the game rather than their frozen fingers. They even have grippers in the palms of the gloves for taking throw ins.
