Football is a game that many millions play worldwide and it captures the imagination of even more. If you enjoy playing football, no matter at what level, then there are important pieces of kit that you need to get to make sure that you are safe and have the best chance of coming off uninjured.

Shin guards and football boots are very important pieces of equipment you need to play football. Shin guards protect you from knocks and help to take some of the impact of any tackle or challenge that goes in on you. Shin guards have evolved considerably over the years and are now made of hi-tech modern materials to make them lighter yet tougher. Football boots are also an essential piece of football equipment making sure you have the right grip when you play to avoid sliding and potentially injuring yourself. Getting the right fitting football boots as well as the ones that offer you the best grip and support for your feet is key when selecting what football boots to buy.

Goalkeepers have additional football kit to buy with gloves being an obvious essential for any goalkeeper. Interestingly goalkeepers are the only players who are permitted to wear a baseball cap when on the field to block out the sun. goalkeepers shirts should always be a different colour to both their team mates and their opponents to make them more distinguishable. When buying foot ball kit for goalkeepers the function of many pieces of kit change slightly with greater priority placed on padding and things like that than for outfield players, with football boots also being slightly different with their main purposes being different.

The importance of getting the right football equipment is seen with the number of injures that occur in the game. For a while there was a huge spate of foot injuries which could have been avoided by having boots that offered more protection to delicate bones in the foot so all aspects of the football kit needs to be weighed up before buying. Even buying the right football shirt can have an effect on your performance if you are not comfortable in the shirt, the fitting and style may hinder you in a game.

When you are looking to buy your new football shirt and football equipment you need to look at more factors than just the price, there is no point in just buying the cheapest item but equally there is no point in just buying the most expensive item. Budget to see what you can afford and then shop around to find the best piece of kit or the best football shirt around at that price. Buying equipment that will make you safer and more comfortable when playing will not only help avoid injuries but also aid your performance.
