My son is turning 10 this Saturday and he is interested in football  To the point where he would like a football kit.  He is aware that prices can go through the roof for one.  

It looks like I may have to buy individual bits of kit one piece at a time to give him.  It will be a pleasant surprise.  do you think this is a cost-effective idea?

Your site of trainers is very well put together and I am sure the prices must vary….I could start with a football T-shirt, then save up for his trainers… what do you think?


I think you have a good surprise for him. Since he likes football, he will be happy to get any football kit gift.








Definitely one of the dope Reebok kicks to add to your collection.
