As we crescendo into a World Cup summer, the inspiration and culture continues to grew like never before. Mo Salah’s set the Champions League ablaze, while Nike was busy with the drops of a new Dutch kit and the jaw-dropping CR7 “Portugal Patchwork” Air Max 97. Elsewhere skate legend Mark Gonzales collabed with adidas Skateboarding for a wild soccer kit and an insane fan from Brazil tattooed his entire upper body in the black/red stripes of his beloved Flamengo.

Loyalty, loyalty, loyalty. Are full-body shirt tats the new wave? 🤔

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. .

Here’s to another week. We saw another jaw-dropping chapter in the legend that is Leo Messi as he nutmegged Barcelona into the quarter-finals along with a cheeky England v England tie to look forward to. Off pitch, our Korean brothers at Over The Pitch, built out a beautiful exhibit to the lineage of the adidas Predator in Seoul. Elsewhere Nike dropped the France World Cup 2018 kits, while Patta collab with Umbro for some 90s inspired jersey’s and Offset is seen pictured with his young son who is crying, probably because he’s rocking a Southhampton shirt. Well cheer up little guy, it’s time for another round of This Weeks Instagram Best 11.

Soccer don’t sleep. It is true now more than ever, our beloved game truly has no offseason.

Today we take another weekly look back at our favorite Instagram posts that blend outside cultures with soccer. Here are last weeks #BestOfBothWorlds IG posts.

In the turmoil of 1970s and ’80s England, the working-class escape was clear: be a footballer or form a band. | England in the 1970s and early ’80s was a grim, violent, angry, lean, ambitious, stimulating place. It had hardship and conflict on a scale unknown since the end of World War II. It was the golden-studded age of English punk and heavy metal. It also had football success of a magnitude unseen since: English clubs won the European Cup seven of the eight years between 1977 and 1984. Now the English Premier League is the richest and most popular in the world, but English clubs’ dominance on the pitch is a thing of the past—like, alas, Lemmy Kilmister’s throbbing bass in Motörhead and Bob Paisley’s understated cunning at Liverpool. | Excerpt from our issue 11 piece 'We Are The Champions' by Paul Doyle.
