Another Friday has rolled around way too quickly, especially when you’ve had the type of hectic week we’ve had. While continuing our efforts on the site, we’ve also had to move offices, conduct lord knows how many back-to-back projects, and find ways to grow our team, all the while keeping an ear on the ground for what’s been happening within soccer culture. So before we can hang our boots in exchange for ones better suited for the Coachella desert, we’re still grinding away at the new (and far from finished) office to bring you our Best 11 Instagram posts of the week, curated as always by our very on Andrew Medina.

To highlight a few, we’ve got COPA Football’s homage jersey to one of the greatest grunge bands ever: Pearl Jam; LAFC’s limited edition recycled Jersey, a Parley x adidas x MLS effort for Earth Day, Bleacher Report’s Bayern vs. Real Madrid and Liverpool vs. Roma Dragonball Z-inspired animation, Zlatan and Shaq (of course), and Alexander Wang’s third season drop with adidas Originals to name a few. Have a look below to see our full Best 11.

In the run up to the World Cup, we are designing prints representing our favourite new national team kits. Our latest print available to buy is the Nigeria Super Eagles kit pattern. . . 'The footwear giant set out to channel the Naija, or “New Nigeria” identity exuded by the youthful, contemporary team, which is mostly comprised of players under 25 years old. Nike accomplishes this through chevron and floral prints in tonal greens. The Nigeria Football Federation gets a lime green/white chevron Fast Fit Vapor Knit home uniform and traditional dark green ensemble for away. The key feature of the performance wear is heat transfer technology 64% lighter than other top-performing gear, making it Nike’s most breathable. .

After a tease via photos from earlier in the week, we now get the full adidas Originals x Alexander Wang Drop 3 Collection. The already fruitful collaboration now brings us a slew of streetwear staples including soccer inspired kits, track jackets, a French terry sweatshirt, a bomber, hoodies, collard shirts, sweat-shorts and various outerwear pieces ranging in textures. As with the previous drops adidas branding is flipped, inverted, turned inside out and reworked in trademark Alex Wang fashion.

The adidas Originals x Aexander Wang Drop 3 Collection will be available starting April 1 at select retails and on the adidas Originals web store.


As we mentioned in our radio show last week, the Three-Stripes have really taken to their high-fashion partnerships with a refreshing confidence. Giving their collaborative designers a sometimes shocking freedom, has paid off. Their latest sees adidas Originals set to drop another collab with fashion prodigy turned full blown juggernaut, Alexander Wang. The collection takes classic adidas trefiol and three-stripes branding then twerks them in ways never seen before.

The drop features timeless sportswear silhouettes with an over-sized, in-fashion tinge. It’s all good and gravy with the clothing, especially track jacket, but without a doubt the two standout pieces are the kicks.  Both feature popular, BOOST and Primeknit tech, but once again in vessels never seen before. An all white “AW Run Clean” looks like a high-end ACE 16+ UltraBOOST while the black “AW Run” features an entirely unique lacing aesthetic and system which tightens at the heel.

 Look for the adidas Originals X Alexander Wang collection to drop on March 1st at select retailers worldwide.
