Sportswear for all the seasons
Bill Shankly, who was rarely pictured without a tracksuit on, once claimed that football was more important than life and death – and the unstoppable rise of sportswear would suggest that the nation is becoming equally obsessed.
A certain percentage of sportswear fans prefer to watch other people engage in strenuous exercise rather than partake in themselves, of course, as witnessed in those large size men’s replica football tops stretched over extra large bellies.
But for many of us getting the right sportswear is an important step on the long path towards achieving our fitness goals that will improve our quality of life and help us live for longer.
Feeling comfortable in your training gear will help you stay focused for longer for a more effective workout, so don’t make the mistake of trying to cut corners in your preparation.
When it comes to looking the part, there are a range of top sportwear brands to chose from, including Lacoste, Adidas originals UK and Puma clothing. Find the style that suits your exercise regime, from tracksuits to swim shorts to fitness tights, and you’re ready to get physical!
Don’t forget your feet – trainers exist of a whole fashion universe of their own nowadays, so you can put an emphasis on comfort and elegance with a brand like Fred Perry or you can go bold and bright with Nike or even laid back and relaxed with a pair of Converse All Stars.
When it comes to playing football it’s vital to get the right boots. After all, you are never going to score that incredible extra-time overhead kick winner in the top corner if you’re playing in a pair of tatty trainers. Invest in a pair of Adidas, Nike or Puma football boots and you won’t just look the part – you’ll also feel like a pro as you enjoy the grip, power and control required to do your game justice.
