Through our 3,000+ items of football gear. Let’s find that perfect piece made for your unique skill set.


Football Gear by Position – QuarterbacksYou can’t start talking about QB gear without mentioning the Under Armour C1Ns. Designed specifically around Cam Newton’s amazing skill set, these cleats feature a carbon outsole and plenty of ankle support — perfect for patrolling the pocket and moving the offense with ease.

Dual-threat quarterbacks will love the added freedom of movement of Nike Vapor Untouchable 2 cleats. While they have less ankle protection than the C1N, their flexible collar creates an ideal fit while Flywire cables lock your foot down. Plus, the cleats are light enough to help you dodge the rushers and scramble for a first down.

Gloves aren’t too common for signal callers, but when the weather gets bad, they can be the difference between a clean snap and a fumble. The Under Armour F5s are super-light and ultra-flexible, so that you can focus on every read and make the clutch plays.

Football Gear by Position – Speed

First off, with over 40 colors to choose from, you can definitely find the Nike Vapor Untouchable in your team colors. But more importantly, they are fast — really fast. Mesh and synthetic skins create a breathable, light upper while the innovative cleat design is built for ideal traction during quick bursts of acceleration.

Ringing in at only 7.9 ounces, the adidas adiZero 5-Star 6.0 cleats are the lightest around. A SPRINTSKIN upper gives you a secure and stable fit while the SPRINTFRAME cleat plate features stability beams in key areas, ensuring that every step, cut, and move you make is explosive, dynamic, and unstoppable.

Nike Vapor gloves are a must for game-breaking wideouts and defensive backs. For more technical guys who want an ultra-breathable and lightweight option, it doesn’t get any better than the Vapor Knit. But if you still want that extra bit of support, the Vapor Jet is more up your alley. Either way, you’ll get Nike’s famous Magnigrip palm, which can turn those ridiculous one-handers into routine catches.

Football Gear by Position – Agility

From Flyknit to Flywire to Phylon, the Nike Alpha Menace Elite cleats are chock-full of Nike’s latest and greatest footwear technology. Why? So that you can make every spin, hurdle, and juke that much more dangerous. The cleat’s three-prong studs help you stop on a dime, change direction in a heartbeat, and break tackles on the regular.

Speed backs and backers have a perfect match in the adidas adiZero 5-Star 6.0 Mid. Just like the lows featured in the ‘Speedster’ section, these cleats are light and responsive, but they also offer a padded ankle collar and higher lacing system for added support and fit.

Whether taking on blockers or delivering big hits, your gloves need that extra bit of padding without sacrificing catchability. That’s why the Nike Superbad 4.0 gloves are the best choice. They have extended padding for hand cushioning and support while still featuring that extra-sticky Magnigrip palm.

Football Gear by Position – Blocking

Tight ends and linebackers who dominate from sideline to sideline will love lacing up in the Under Armour Highlight Lux cleats. Comfort is key with these cleats, as they feature a Molded 4D Foam footbed for optimal cushioning, while the UA ClutchFit upper gives you unflinching support. And at Eastbay, we truly are the Home of the Highlight, with over 30 colors, including 18 exclusives.

Comfortable. Responsive. Stylish. The Nike Alpha Menace Pro Mid checks off every requirement on your list. Flywire tech and a 5/8 collar on the upper lock your foot into place comfortably, allowing you to focus on the game. The cleats are also available in 39 different colorways, including one for every pro team, so you can rep your favorite squad while ruling the gridiron.

It’s easy to see why we chose the Cutters Gamer here. Do-everything players deserve a glove that can do it all too. Cutters’ C-TACK palm is still featured here for that unbelievable grip under any weather condition, but there’s also some added padding along the fingers and back of hand. Sticky AND Supportive. Comfortable AND Light.

Football Gear by Position – Power

No matter which side of the line you’re on, it’s always a battle in the trenches — your cleat better be a beast. Nike has stepped up their lineman cleat game with the Nike Force Savage Elite, made specifically for the big men. An extra-wide TPU plate strengthens your base and helps you explode out of your stance and into the opponent while cables along the laces wrap your foot for extra power and nastiness.

When linemen choose cleats, they often have to sacrifice their swagger. There’s no worrying about that with the adidas FREAK cleats. They’re loaded with that Three-Stripes style. But they’re not just a looker, they’ve got some serious game. Available in Mid and High options, these cleats stay light while also giving you ideal stability. For players who want to turn their toughness up to 11, we also offer Freak cleats that feature KEVLAR® reinforcement.

The IRONSKIN zones on the adidas Freak 3.0 gloves give your hands an unparalleled level of protection and padding. An elongated neoprene band offers added wrist support. A four-way stretch back of hand gives you the perfect fit and flexibility… We could go on and on, but you get the idea. These are the lineman gloves you’ve been looking for. So grab them, get out there, and dominate the line of scrimmage.

Football Gear by Position – Kicking

This is your moment — it’s a tie game, three seconds left on the clock, the coach calls on you to attempt the longest kick of your career. Will you deliver? Well, you’ll get off to a good start with the Nike Tiempo soccer cleat. Its kangaroo leather construction is durable, reliable, and provides the ideal kicking surface.

The adidas Copa cleat has that classic look, fit, and performance you need as a kicker. The unique tongue design brings your foot closer to the football so you can launch it farther, faster, and with more control.

A great option for your plant foot is the Under Armour Spotlight football cleat. It’s style and traction is very similar to the soccer cleat you’ll rock on your kicking foot, so you can stay focused and locked in on every big moment and clutch situation.

A few factors must be considered when you start filling up your soccer bag with all kind of gear and apparel, these include the following: Severity of the game (i.e. how serious is this affair), and the size of your bag, weather, the size of your wallet, how hurriedly you’re packing… Let’s go down the list.

–  Cleats (we’ll assume you didn’t wear your cleats on the ride to the game, you may need a spare pair of these if it’s a game of significant magnitude and if your wallet permits it)

– Extra Laces (some fashion conscious players like to switch up lace color but this is probably at the bottom of the scale when it comes to bag content)

– Field Player Gloves (if this is a cold weather game, don’t try to be the manly hero and stave off wearing gloves. Some players can’t stand the way gloves feel but if you can then you should absolutely wear them)

– Soccer Ball (a spare ball of your own never hurts to have, you can kick it about during warmups, of course this depends on how big your bag is)

– Soccer Beanie (a soccer beanie iss od to have if you’re playing outdoors and the weather’s on the cold side. These could be team sponsored beanies if it’s a serious affair or simply one representing your favorite team if it’s a less serious game where that kind of stray gear is allowed. The important thing is keeping your noggin warm)

– Full 90 Headgear (This has become increasingly important as we learn more about concussions and head trauma in sports. You won’t find this in most soccer bags BUT it’s becoming more common as players look for protection from ‘bad’ stuff.

– Guards and Wraps (soccer wraps, shin and possibly ankle guards. These are a necessity especially if you plan on keeping your legs nice and safe for later in life. The wraps also help to keep things tight and can be used on your cleats as well as your feet.)

– Soccer Socks (a spare pair of socks can come in useful especially if you’re the type of all action player who sweats on your feet a lot)

– Soccer Sandals (These are just excellent for keeping your feet loose especially if you favor your cleats on the tighter side)

– Snacks (a powerbar and some water will do, don’t go ordering chinese or pizza, nice and simple. Maybe a banana to replenish energy quickly)

Fill your soccer bag up with these things and go enjoy the game! Remember most importantly, it’s about the sport, you’re not moving to the moon! Enjoy!

Manchester United are getting ready for an exciting 2016-17 season. The club’s jerseys for the new season has hit the stores and these are now also available online for pre-order in Myntra.

United, a club in transition after Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure,have renewed hopes this season under new manager Jose Mourinho. Last 3 seasons have not been up to the club’s standards, to say the least. The Portuguese manager started off his journey with a 2-0 win versus Wigan Athletic in the first preseason game last Saturday. United have flown to China now for their preseason tour where they will face Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City and Galatasaray in much harder tests. Before starting off the season, Jose will be looking to use these games to get the players accustomed to his style of play and also to find his best starting line-up.

The Red Devils’ last preseason game will be the Wayne Rooney Testimonial game against Everton at Old Trafford before starting off the new season at Wembley by taking on league champions, Leicester City, on 7 august for the FA Community Shield.

United have a fresh look to their squad with some really good signings. United’s first signing was the impressive Ivory Coast defender Eric Bailly for a fee of about £30 million on a four-year deal from Spanish club Villareal. Bailly had an excellent last season in La Liga and had a solid debut in the first preseason game against Wigan. Mourinho hoped the young defender would turn to be his Raphael Varane.

United’s second signing is the diminutive 27-year-old Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan who signed for the English giants after having a terrific 2015-16 season at Borussia Dortmund. Incidentally, Mkhitaryan will become the first Armenian to play in the Premier League. He also had a great debut against Wigan last Saturday. Mkhitaryan is a key piece of business for United as he will be hoping to bring the much-needed creativity in their midfield.

United’s third transfer this season is the blockbuster signing of Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic for free after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired. With Rooney slowly becoming more suited to a midfield role, United hoped for a number 9 and who better to get than Zlatan? The flamboyant 34-year-old has already become a fan favorite without kicking the ball in a United kit and he will be looking to keep his impressive goal-scoring record going in England too.

There are plenty of positive signs for Manchester United ahead of the new season and a lot to look forward to with a new-look team and rejuvenated hopes.
