One of the biggest sports brands in the world, Nike is infamous for its use of a classic design and sporting technology to create football kits for top football federations such as England and Brazil. Here at Soccer Direct FC, we have spotted a few new things in the Nike 2017/2018 catalogue that we feel you would want to see. The majority of the football kits discussed in this post aren’t on our website as of yet (watch this space) but that doesn’t mean you cant still order them from us by giving us a call!

Squad 17 Range

Now this range is hot off the press. So hot it is not even featured in Nike’s 2017/18 catalogue but is available now to buy! The Squad 17 range features a collection of training wear that combines the classic Nike design and innovative technology, which means it will not effect your training performance. All products in this range are available in youth and adult sizes, in a variety of colours and their prices will not break the bank!

Made from 100% polyester, the Squad 17 training top will ensure you are the best on the pitch. When the competition turns up the heat Men’s Nike Dry Football Top is engineered to keep you cool and dry with a breathable mesh back panel and sweat-wicking technology.  You can also play hard and stay dry in the Squad 17 Football Drill Top, powered by Nike Dry fabric. Its flexible sleeves move with you while the slim cut makes for a streamlined silhouette. Or if it’s a new track suit you are after, why not choose the Squad 17 Track Suit. It prepares you for the win in a tapered design that’s made to move and is combined with Dri-FIT technology  which pulls sweat away from your skin while the ribbed cuffs and hem provide a close fit without impeding your mobility.

This range includes an all round training look with Men’s Nike Dry Squad 17 Football Shorts. These shorts offer Nike Dry fabric that wicks sweat away from the skin to the surface of the garment, keeping you dry and ready to play. Combine this with the convenient coverage of the Squad 17 Training Pant.  This pant gives you optimal coverage for training and drills. Ribbing in the calf and side panels fits close to the leg so that you can see the ball and your boots, but also flexes easily with your movements.


Trophy III Jersey

New to 2017, this Nike jersey uses ultimate comfort and a classic style for an all round performance. The Nike dry fabric used helps keep you dry and comfortable on the pitch, which will only enhance your overall performance.  The raglan sleeves which allow a natural range of motion combined with the modified v neck which offers a non-restrictive fit means there’s no way you can go wrong with this jersey being part of your everyday football kit!

Made from 100% polyester, the quality isn’t going to fade after a few games and each colour used has been inspired by one of the top federations sponsored by Nike. These include England, Brazil, Portugal, the Netherlands, Poland and France.

This new Nike range which will be running from the 1st of April 2017 to the 31st of March 2020 means you can be one of the first to sport this jersey and be the envy of everyone with your combination of comfort and performance enhancing technology.

You can grab the short sleeve jersey for just £16.95, with a long sleeved option for £17.95 and for youth sizes it ranges between £12.95 and £14.95, and between £13.95 and £15.95 for long sleeved!


Women’s park jersey and shorts

Now this one is for the women of the football world. This football kit made by Nike is another new addition to their catalogue and will run from the 1st of April 2017 to the 31st of March 2020.

For only £14.95, the park jersey sports a classic design with a slimmer waistline for a more feminine fit, combined with Nike DRY technology for exceptional performance. This will keep you dry and comfortable all day so there’s no reason to slow down. If that wasn’t enough the ribbed crew neck offers a non-restrictive fit and the side mesh panels increase ventilation which means that combined with the Nike DRY fabric you can stay easy and breezy all day long!



And the matching women’s park short is equally as good and equally as affordable at £11.95. Without a brief, these shorts offer a lean mobility for maximum agility. The swoosh design trademark is embroidered at the left hem for that little extra touch of quality and the fabric, like the jersey, uses Nike DRY fabric so you can be dry and comfortable from head to toe! And lastly the elastic waistband on these park shorts mean you can have an adjustable fit, which means these shorts combined with the jersey really are the epitome of classic designing and technical sports know-how.

Classic ii sock

Running from the 1st of April 2017 till the 31st of March 2020, these socks are evidently going to be the popular choice in the next few years! The design follows a classic Nike style with the contrast of the swoosh design trademark at the ankle. These socks also sport ab articulated specific foot bed for a superior fit and comfortable performance all day and unlike other Nike socks, these use a combination of 97% nylon with 3% spandex for that extra elasticated feel.

You can buy these socks now and for the near future for £5.95.
