The 2021/22 away kit hanging up in the changing room.

Our top five weekly picks that you must see

Friday 06 August 2021 17:59

Let’s be honest, there’s not much better than bumping into someone and realising you both support the same football club.

There’s a bond that is instantly created, as you realise that you belong to one of the biggest families on the planet, especially when it’s Manchester United.

Proudly supporting your club is a statement, it’s a way to express yourself and let others know how proud you are. That’s why we have picked out five products that allow you to celebrate your support in style.

Kicking things off is the adidas x United face mask. We may be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with the pandemic (hopefully) coming to an end, but safety is still the most important thing.

Constructed from a soft polyester, this face mask offers protection against potentially harmful airborne particles and keeps you super comfortable thanks to the elasticated ear hooks. With the Manchester United badge printed on the side, it allows you to show off your support in another fashion. Oh, and the polyester is recycled too, so you’re doing your bit to help the planet at the same time.

They're available in S/M/L and you can grab yours here.

We’re sure that you’ve seen the away kit for the upcoming season by now, and if you haven’t, then please head on over to this article where we explore it in a little more detail, including the inspiration behind it.

Inspired by the classic ‘snowflake’ kit from 1990/92, our away kit for this season is comprised of a super soft polyester and utilises adidas’ AEROREADY technology to regulate body temperature, so not only will you look cool, you’ll feel it too.

The abstract and eye-catching design incorporates an ‘M’, so you have quite literally got the club close to your heart whenever you’re wearing it.

On the topic of historical inspirations, it would be rude for us to not include the 1968 European Cup final retro shirt, wouldn’t it?

This lovely number is a nod to the historic jersey that was worn when we beat Benfica 4-1 back in ‘68 to win our first European Cup. It’s made from a premium cotton and features an embroidered club crest, which is a real throwback to the kit worn by the players during the game.

Ribbed trimmings at the neckline and cuffs lock in comfort and style, and a top-stitched hem seals the deal to retain the fit. Take a closer look at this cool retro piece here

Now, we understand the importance of not only feeling your best, but looking your best, too. That’s why the adidas & United training range has got you covered in both of those senses. While the entire range is fashionable, functional and comfortable, there’s one piece in particular that we’d like to feature thanks to its versatility.

The training top in black is a long sleeve silhouette with thumb-holes incorporated at the cuffs to provide a secure and snug fit. Fabricated from Primegreen, which is a blend of recycled materials, you’re also joining us on ours and adidas’ mission to reduce plastic waste. This cosy long-sleeve also includes adidas’ AEROREADY technology, which keeps you cool no matter what thanks to therm-regulatory properties. A ¼ zip closure allows for ease of access and provides a little more breathability on those warmer days.

Train and chill in comfort and style with this piece: be sure to take a closer peek here.

Of course we couldn’t talk about some of our favourite products at the moment without including a pair of Maui Jim shades. Not only are they a brand with so much interesting history and a really cool story, but they also make amazing sunglasses, to be totally honest.

Whilst the entire range is top-notch stuff with top-of-the-range UV protection, we’re showcasing the Perico silhouette, but you should definitely check out the full range here

The Perico features a sturdy, cool and comfortable Italian acetate frame that has a tortoise pattern throughout, to provide a timeless look. Not only does the acetate frame offer up comfort, but titanium nose pads that are encased in non-slip silicone ensure that this pair aren’t going to be misplaced easily, in any condition they’ll keep you looking great and your eyes protected.

The lenses are made from SuperThin glass, which supply some seriously crispy and clean optics. SuperThin glass is 20%-32% thinner and lighter than standard glass, but with no compromise on quality thanks to excellent scratch and solvent resistant qualities. Be sure to check out the Perico here.
