Get your kit on: Head to your weekly five-a-side in style
Show up your mates on the pitch and off it with the latest footballing clobber
With the weather getting a little bit better (we hope) we can start going back outside without fear of being frozen solid or blown away by the wind and the rain. That means we can start organising our weekly five-a-sides again, and get the lads together for a game of ball.
Before we do all that though, we're going to need to get kitted out from head to toe with some very slick gear, from the boots to the jersey, so that we don't show up smelling of old socks and looking as dishevelled as a second-hand broom.
With the World Cup around the corner, there is a whole collection of jerseys on offer for you to show off your allegiances. Spain might be lifting the trophy in this number this year, if they can continue their amazing run at international tournaments, although that is a big ask. While we all still remember that handball, France refuse to stop making really nice looking jerseys too and we must admit we're a sucker for the latest one.
If your budget can't stretch to an official shirt, then this Nike ringer t-shirt should do the trick nicely, plus you can lend your support to the hosts, whose brand of Samba football will surely excite crowds this summer.
Now that you've got your top sorted, you'll need the shorts to go with it, but we've started with the base layer, an integral part of the kit to ensure that you don't get too sweaty in areas that you don't want to. Add in these plain Nike shorts, because no one likes the lad who turns up in the full kit...
Finally, you're going to need to have the coolest boots on the pitch to dominate the game, and we've always been a fan of Adidas boots, and these Nitrocharge TRX 3.0 are definitely on our most wanted list.
Of course, if Spain, France or Brazil aren't to your taste, or you want a flashier pair of boots, don't forget to check out Littlewoods Ireland for a whole range of jerseys and accessories that will boost your game to the next level.
