Unlike any other major sport, Soccer and by extension futsal, share a symbiotic relationship with street fashion. Shirt, shorts, shoes…simple really. It only makes sense then; that what we often see on the pitch and court is what we continue to rock off it. To focus on the latter, Nike has hit yet again with another indoor classic, the Premier II Sala collection.

Continuing a tradition of timelessly clean boots, Nike keeps it classy yet functionally forward with this latest release. Starting with color: the shoe comes in a clean “Desert Sand” and “Midnight Navy”, to which would virtually complement any fit. As for comfort, the shoes upper is rugged and sturdy, built for the countless courts it will be played on worldwide, and features lightweight mesh alongside supple suede accents. To bring it together, Nike has instilled its Lunarlon technology, a soft and durable foam core base that’s both lightweight and resilient.

The Nike Premier II Sala Collection arrives at an interesting time, as fashion is hearkening back to the many styles seen throughout the ‘90s and early 2000s. Baggy pants, eccentric shades, flashy color palettes, and oversized tops are but a few of the trends currently dominating the street landscape to where we’ve seen other sportswear giants, such as adidas, dropping its own set of historical and modern kicks with the recent release of the Predator Accelerator TR Ultraboost and forward thinking Sobakov.

Like its German counterpart, Nike also pays its homage to its past by blending the right amount of history with just the right amount of modern technology, where the shoes just feel right and will feel right for a very long time.

Although the on pitch play of the Korean National Football team has been lackluster at best, the team came correct off pitch for this years World Cup in Russia. Partnering up with design firm H9PITCH STUDIO, the KFA created a special collection of items that appeal to the world that lives outside of the game. From limited edition patches, skate decks, rings, air fresheners, bluetooth speakers, and bracelets the collection has something for everyone. Not until recent has repping your national team crest been looked at as stylish, but with the younger generation of fans emerging, the clubs and countries must keep up with the popular sense of style. The best part of this entire collection is the federation did it all private label. Avoiding the headache and red tape of the “big brand” the KFA was able to lean on a design group directly connected to the streets of Korea, in turn creating a collection that sends a message to the streets.

The inspiration behind the product stems from an ever growing need for “cool” in the soccer space. With so many small pop up brands entering the market, it seems only fitting that the big clubs and countries start to grasp the new wave of soccer. No longer is soccer tiro pants with the track jacket, or the mom in the mini van, as the key teams begin to take notice of the off pitch style, the growth of the sport will accelerate beyond anything can imagine. Tapping into the movement of the urban community will allow so many more people to be aware of how beautiful the game genuinely is. A gate way to the gam through the world of style.

When it comes to being first, Korea was not the first ones to do this, back in 2014 the USMNT teamed up with the likes of legendary artist Futura, Kayo skate, and Nike to create a players only collection and PSG created a full collection of product for its US Tours in both LA 2016 and Miami 2017,  but what Korea did do was break the mold for a federation and open this open to the masses. Allowing the fans of the national team to rep the country with pride and style is one thing, but when the fans of other countries are supporting, you know you have done something correct.

In my opinion, the collection is well rounded, creative and a step in the right direction. Hopefully sooner then later the powers that be inside the clubs and federations will take note. Until then you get one option. You can pick up the full KFA collection now at H9Pitch.

Peep the full collection below.

HERE! HERE! Sound the trumpets, roll out the red carpet, call in sick, kiss a loved one or just do whatever it is you do to celebrate a most glorious occasion. Soccers Messi-ah has received a new boot. All joking aside one of the greatest to ever do it has been given an entirely new silo inspired by his genius.

The adidas Nemeziz takes its design cues from the ritual of taping limbs for increased stability and strength. Every inch of the new boot is built for players who heavily rely on agility. The brilliant tech starts with the unique AGILITYBANDAGE which employs super lightweight TORSIONTAPES technology to keep the foot locked down for an unrivaled fit, while a dual-lock collar secures the ankle in place for explosiveness. The new AGILITYKNIT 2.0 interlocking yarn structure provides a soft direct touch and a lightweight adaptable feel.

“Disruption is a part of my game. A player must attempt to make moves that their opponent isn’t expecting and needs to do so as quickly as possible. To be able to do that, you need complete confidence in your boots and the flexibility to move and adjust easily. The design of these boots is perfect for my game.” – Leo Messi

La Pulga will rock the brand new NEMEZIZ this Saturday at the Copa Del Rey final at the Calderon on May 27th.  You will also be able to see the likes of Lindgard, Firmino and Renato Sanches in the upcoming 2017/18 season.

Inspired by vintage goalkeeper bags and the dopp kits soccer players haul around when traveling to or from a match, The Terrace Club x Aviata Sport Dopp Bag is a versatile piece steeped in footy roots. According to Ben from the Terrace Club the idea was always to blend the two concepts. In wanting to pay homage to goalkeepers TC naturally reached out to makers of fine goalkeeping wear, Aviata Sport. Not only does the dopp stylistically mimic vintage goalkeeper bags, but the inner lining is made of old black and white photos of goalies making iconic saves. 

More design concepts stemmed from seeing players over the decades carry their toiletry bags en route to the locker room or bus on game day. The bag was built with that versatility in mind as the entire outer is made of a durable wax canvas which repels water and ages well. Lastly, one thing that the Terrace Club and Aviata Sport are both staunchly proud of is that their dopp bag is made from front to back in the U.S.A.

I think they felt bad and just threw us a bone, ” said the folks from FC Dorsum. And thus the FC Dorsum x Line Hotel collab was born. The capsule features a tee, hotel robe, and slippers. The moth emblem is ubiquitous but subtle throughout with the collection releasing just before their S/S 17 range drops.
