In short… create a crew and get involved.

The Nike Football App enables you to challenge others from the palm of your hand to the pitch with your feet.

This video, which quite frankly is utterly sublime shows how you can do that. Though, this is set in Mexico City and looks the bees. Players clad in the new MercurialX too, which I might add, is another beautiful addition to the X family from Nike.

 

So good.

Paul Ripke is one hell of a photographer. Very much an artist, his craft has taken him around the globe, helping convey some truly unique and memorable occasions.

The 2014 World Cup in Brazil, was one of those very moments.

You may well have seen his work before – I very much hope so. In the same vein, I hope this book is on your radar if not on its way to your coffee table.

As a passionate football fan, inspired by design, photography, illustration and the like, ‘One Night In Rio’ is a feast for the imagination as much as the eyes.

Documenting the journey and story of Germany’s world cup triumph, this spectacular book marks the occasion in a way not only fitting but in tribute. It is a showcase in fantastic, natural photography as much as a celebration of success. Overall, it’s the fact that it is a blend of the two that makes this most powerful.

It’s been an impressive year for the three stripes of adidas – a World Cup, predator anniversaries and an ever growing, innovative gift of creativity to the football world.

In a touch of class, adidas has released new versions of its adizero f50, Predator and Nitrocharge boot ranges, in a pack set to bring together comfort and performance like never before.

Footballers today demand boots that provide the perfect fit, in any conditions. No player can perform at their best without optimum comfort from their boots.

That’s why adidas has released the Pure Leather Pack, setting new standards in football boot comfort. Each boot has been completely deconstructed and re-produced using premium k-leather, the softest and most comfortable leather available.

The adidas Pure Leather Pack is available to buy now at http://www.adidas.com/football.

Having worn a pair of 11Pro’s and been in awe somewhat as to their cultured yet to the point style.

Today adidas revealed a new version of the boot, which is set to offer the most comfortable and premium fit to date. The all-new design and colour blocking ensures that the 11Pro is the classiest boot on the football field and the “perfect suit” in terms of elegance and style.

The 11Pro has been re-engineered from heel to toe allowing for increased stability and protection. A new skeleton in the heel and forefoot allows for the perfect fit, as well as increased stability. The all new comfort outsole also features a comfort frame which distributes pressure across the shoe, while new smaller studs provide perfect ground penetration. The leather upper provides an ultra-comfortable fit as well as optimum control.

As well as providing unparalleled comfort and support, the boot comes with a new premium and modern look. The classic black and white design gives the boots a timeless appeal and puts them at the forefront of style in the beautiful game.

Just as with the new Nitrocharge 1.0 – the launch of these boots has been executed in a clinically brilliant fashion. The epitome of the boots themselves.

Adding further protection for the players right in the thick of the action, protection pads and mesh have been upped to provide unrivalled stability. With that, a new energy-sling positioning has been used so the boots are stronger and more powerful than ever.

Not too much we can really say about these. Need to see them in the flesh by sweet mutha. These look stunning.

Blackout / Whiteout boots have been doing the rounds for the last couple of years but few have been officially released.

These have the class of champions. Nonchalant and majestic. Beauty personified.

How’s this for presentation too.
