Five for Friday | Our Best Selling Nike Products!

April has been our Nike Month, where we have focused on the iconic brand with features on key products from the 2017/18 Team Catalogue, delved into the archives to look at some fun football facts associated with Nike and ran an exciting competition to win a Nike Trophy III football kit!

Our final blog of the month focuses on 5 of our best selling Nike team kit and training wear products that are popular with hundreds of football teams across the UK and with individuals looking for great quality sports clothing for their own leisure and fitness pursuits.

Park VI | Essential Shirts for the active sports fanatic!

Forever associated with Nike Football, the Park range of kit has been a staple in the Nike teamwear catalogue for 20 years and is now onto the 6th version of the famous series of football jerseys.  A simple and plain shirt that is available in a choice of short or long sleeves, the Park VI features Dri-FIT in the fabric to help manage moisture away from the skin, keeping you cool and dry as you are active whether playing football or working out at the gym.  The Park VI jersey also has mesh panel strips down the sides of the body and a distinct but understated v-neck collar design.  This jersey is as popular with schools as it is with football teams and with a huge variety of colours available (15 in total) you are sure to find a colour in the Park VI that is to your liking!  Available now at Direct Soccer and in stock for immediate dispatch at Express Football Kits.

Academy 16 Midlayer | All-around performance, no matter the climate!

The UK climate can be volatile so protect yourself from the elements with the Academy 16 Midlayer.  This great long sleeve training top is ideally worn over a t-shirt or training top and is designed to be worn as a pre-match warm-up top.  However, the Academy 16 Midlayer has a generic plain look that means it can easily be worn while you are out for a run in the park or on your bicycle.  Dri-FIT technology in the fabric allows you stay dry and comfortable as you train  while the mock style neck has a 1/4 length zipper so you can customise how you wear the midlayer training top.  Available in a choice of 4 standard colours, the Academy 16 Midlayer is available in all sizes from XS Youths to XXL Adults and is in stock at Express Football Kits now for next working day delivery!

Striped Division II | Now for something completely different...

Marmite, Joey Barton, you either love 'em or hate 'em!  Now add the Striped Division II football jersey to this category!  Dividing opinion since it was released in 2016, the Nike Striped Division II has a quirky take on the classic striped football jersey.  But there's no hiding the fact that it has been one of our best selling football shirts since the launch last Spring!  Personally, we love it, particularly the White/University Blue combination.  The Striped Division II jersey comes in a choice of short or long sleeves and is available now at Direct Soccer and Express Football Kits with 25% off the RRP.  The stripe pattern on the front of the jersey is modernised with a gradient print stripe effect rising from the hem of the shirt to the chest while the plain back and sleeves means you can fully customise the jersey with names and numbers to stand out with ease on the pitch.  A double-layered mesh panel on the back enhances ventilation to help keep you cool and dry as you compete!

[caption id="attachment_2365" align="alignleft" width="212"] Featuring a gradient stripe print effect on the front, this best-selling striped jersey is ideal for football teams that play in stripes such as Kilmarnock.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_2363" align="alignleft" width="222"] Our favourite of the Striped Division II jerseys, the White/Uni Blue is worn by Direct Soccer club shop partner MAP Juniors and EFL side Coventry City.[/caption]
