1). Adidas Samba Millennium: A spin-off of one of one of the most popular indoor soccer shoes of all time, the Samba Millennium is one of the most versatile, stylish shoes out there. The Full-Grain leather put on the upper gives you a highly durable shoe and the non-marking gum rubber makes the shoe terrific for indoor surfaces or any other environment you wear these kicks around. In all, it’s a high performing soccer shoe as well as something you can wear on a daily basis thanks classy good looks and quality materials throughout that make the shoe a joy to wear.
2.) Adidas Adipower Predator With its Predator style and flair, looks can’t get better than this. The black and blue color scheme is sure to make you play like a World Cup champion. Full grain leather makes this shoe quite durable and the price can’t be beat for how much quality this shoe brings to the table. Patented “Predator” material also lines the instep of the shoe to help you swerve the ball and harness more power behind everything you do. The shoe is lightweight and a real steal for the price.
3.) Nike 5 Bomba Pro Turf Shoes The younger brother of the Nike 5 Bomba Finale, this afordable turf shoe is quite comfortable and simple. Padding galore lines the inside and outside of the shoe and soft natural leather surrounding the shoe shoe helps you have a nice touch on the ball, though it does take some getting used to if you have been wearing synthetic turf shoes for a while. Also has terrific traction thanks to it’s pink studs on the outter edges of the shoe, helping your cuts and overall speed of your game. A great value if you can’t afford the Bomba Finale.
4). Puma Powercat 1.10 FG: If you’ve got the cash to acquire an elite pair of shoes, you can’t go wrong with the Puma Powercat 1.10. K-leather conforms to the shape of your foot and provides an incredibly soft touch on the ball. A lightweight TPU injected sole ensures you’ve got a highly durable product that will last you no matter the conditions you put it through (i.e. bad smelling feet). The shoe also features a pointed, bladed stud configuration that helps you further perform turns on a dime. The shoe is an investment, yes. But a worthy one, thanks to the incredibly durable, non marking kangaroo leather. The Puma Powercat is classic.
5). Adidas Adilette- Black with White: This classic pair of Adidas soccer sandals is about as traditional and comfortable as it gets for a flip flop. Though the Adilette has been largely unchanged since it’s inception way back when, I take the stance of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. They are real comfortable and really easy to slip on and off, one of main qualifiers in a soccer sandal. Once you get these sandals, you’ll never go back.
6.) Puma v 1.11 SL As the lightest boot on the market today (an absurd 5.3 ounces), the Puma v 1.11 SL will certainly add the speed you’ve always craved on the field as well as a surprising amount of durability. The boot has a carbon fiber plate the studs sit on for extreme flexibility and the ability to take even the harshest of cuts as you blow by defenders. It’s almost as if a player plays barefoot with these babies on. A sweet pair of cleats.
7.) Adidas F50 adizero Weighing a ridiculously light 165 grams, the Adidas F50 adiZero is the ultimate shoe for an attacking player on the pitch. Using traxion studs and limiting weight on nearly every part of the shoe conceivable, these boots feel like you wear nothing at all, which is great in the latter parts of a match when other players’ legs begin to tire.
8). Nike Tiempo Mystic IV FG: A soft full grain leather shoe, the Mystic FG is another great value benefit if you prefer a classic performing shoe over the synthetic materials common in todays boots. The shoe is a bit heavier, so if value brawn over speed, look into this one. A high density EVA sockliner keeps you comfortable during the game and the combination between conical and bladed studs merges the line between modern product and classic shoe. A reliable performer for the developing player.
9.) Nike Air Gato Leather Soccer Shoes These extremely comfortable indoor shoes are quite durable because of the full grain leather and added cushioning on the inside. It also has perforated panels to keep your feet cool and maximize breathability while you’re playing in your game. The touch is soft when playing and takes a bit of time to get used to, but in reality, you have increased control over your game. Plain, but reliable.
10). USA Home Jersey: This bad boy will be worn by the US Men’s National Team this summer for the Gold Cup in June, where they’ll take on some of the best from the North American region, CONCACAF. The shirt is really classy but has a love it or hate it feature, the gray diagonal stripe across the front of the shirt. While some argue it looks like a sash, I think it just dresses it up a bit. Slap a nameset on the back, such as the ever reliable Landon Donovan or the up and coming striker sensation Juan Agudelo and you’ve got yourself a pretty awesome jersey. Plus it’s made with Dri-Fit technology so the jersey is really breathable.
11.)Manchester United Jersey The popular trend in jersey design this year is a throwback to classic jerseys from many years past and Manchester United is no different in their home threads this year. The long sleeve home jersey looks especially good, with a classic white collar and available namesets (like Chicharito or the controversial Rooney) to keep you looking as suave as Dimitar Berbatov (or whatever adjective you’d like to use to describe the Bulgarian.
12). Chivas USA Home Jersey: This Chivas USA Jersey is a classic soccer jersey design, with a similar design to many clubs around the world (see PSV Eindhoven, Athletico Madrid, or Chivas). At any rate, it’s a popular design decision for a reason: it looks sharp and clean. Corona is the perfect sponsor for the jersey. Plus, it’s a 100% polyester Clima-Lite product that makes the shirt highly breathable, durable and comfortable too.
13). France Ball: Let’s face it: the 2010 FIFA World Cup for the France Men’s National Team could not have gone much worse. The team argued, fought, and clawed their way to an embarrassing group stage exit. But all that’s in the past. To commemorate the newly invigorated squad, a new France ball has come out and it looks great. The machine stitched ball 32 panel casing holds up well and features a butyl bladder for quality air retention. The ball is blue all over and features France and Nike sign-age everywhere so you can show it off to all your friends with no issues. This is the new France. This is the new France ball and it rocks.
14). Nike 1/4 Zip Performance Thermal Top: This classic pullover is all a bit plain but comes in a ton of different colors (Royal, Red, Navy, Black, Cardinal, Forest) and is highly comfortable and durable. A 100% Polyester design keeps this thermal breathable and lightweight, yet durable. It works well as a soccer jacket or just as a casual pullover for practically any situation. It’s a bit slim fit, so if you are deciding between sizes, I’d go with a size up. At any rate, the jacket is real comfortable and reasonably affordable.
15). Adidas Condivo Shorts: If you’re looking for a pair of quality training soccer shorts, look no further than Adidas Condivo shorts. The classic three stripe design is available in 3 colors (black, yellow, and royal) so you can probably find something to find your needs. Mesh lines the inside and outside of the shorts so your legs don’t feel constrained and make them quite breathable. They are a good length, appropriate for soccer in my opinion. They don’t ride up on you at any point and stay in place thanks to Formotion seam placement. A great value buy if you’re looking to stock up on practice gear.
16). Club America Home Jersey: Never would I think in a million years that squeezing more than one sponsor on a soccer jersey would be a good idea. I was sorely mistaken when taking into account the personality of the greatest Mexican club around, Club America. Lined with a seemingly absurd 3 sponsors, this Club America jersey embodies the flashiness of the club superbly. The Aguilas rock their home fixtures with this awesome Nike product that’s lightweight, durable, and flashy.
17). Reusch Keon SG Ortho Tec Goalkeeper Glove: If you’re looking for an ergonomic, affordable SG goalie glove, the Reusch Keon SG is a flashy alternative for you that won’t burn your wallet. The high quality palm is made of a natural and synthetic latex blend mix that provides excellent grip on the ball. The Soft EVA backing on the backhand of the glove gives the glove the perfect mix between flexibility and durability. Did I mention it’s a bit flashy? Love it. One of the great goalie gloves out there.
18). Adidas F50 Pro Lite Shinguard: The need for a reliable pair of practice guards is huge if you play soccer. I assume you play soccer since you are reading this, right? Anyways, the Adidas F50 Pro Lite Guard is an affordable and durable solution from a trusted company. Soft synthetic lining makes the guard breathable and comfortable while the included compression sleeves keep your guards firmly in place on your leg, no matter what leg shape you have. Plus, these shin guards are NOCSAE approved, so you can be assured you’ll be up to standards regardless of what league you play in.
19.) Adidas Tiro 11 Stadium Jacket This stadium style jacket will keep you warm in Antarctic conditions and beyond (well, almost). It’s ridiculously warm, so it does carry a bit of weight to it and is certainly meant for harsher conditions. The styling is relatively plain and akin to a classic Adidas product, however is quite professional looking. Warming features such as a detachable hood, inside pockets, and a storm vest help make this a great jacket that will last you a long time.
20).Nike Vapor VII CR7: Ronaldo is about as flashy a soccer superstar as they come. That’s why he’s got his own pair of flashy boots to fit a style all his own with his own iteration of the popular Nike Vapor. The shoe is white and black all over with zebra style stripes all over the boot. Though not as flashy as his previous iteration of the Vapor, the boot delivers a highly modern look and performance that you’d only come to expect from Nike and one of the best players out there.
