The days are drawing shorter. The temperatures are falling. Holidays are on the horizon and there are times ahead to celebrate together. So whether buying that first pair of football boots or keeping him running warm through the winter, we’ve got you covered with a curated selection of our best picks for men. Get in early and prepare for those special gifting moments.


There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad gear. From clocking marathon miles on the streets to running trails—we’ve got the kit to keep the runner in your life going throughout the year.


When buying for others, running footwear is personal. But between our different performance categories, we can help you choose the perfect pair. If you are shopping for a runner who needs long distance support and comfort—the SOLARBOOST range provides lightweight cushioning and stability, that will energise every mile in all conditions. Faster runners will love the ADIZERO blend of precision and speed. And with a range of colourways covered across all performance shoes, you can choose whether to shout out loud, or blend into the night.

Running-detail-desktopFor adventurers, our trail running shoes are ready for all conditions. Combining classic adidas styling with outdoor performance—they are built to last and versatile enough to be taken from the city streets to the mountains, whatever the weather.

As the temperatures continue to drop, layering is key. Warm those early morning runs in the frost, by gifting winter-ready running clothing. All runners will appreciate it. Combine Climaheat tights with a technical fleece jacket to shed the sleet and snow. And stop his fingers from freezing, with a pair of stretch fleece gloves. You can’t go wrong.


For football lovers, we have it sorted. Whether shopping for a midfield master, speedy striker or devoted fan. Our football range embraces the best of technology and tradition. Taking first time goalscorers to the stadium—you could create the start of something special.


No matter whether playing on firm, soft, artificial ground or astroturf—football boots can make a memorable gift for all playing styles. The Predator is a contemporary classic, refined over its 25 year history and worn by the best from Beckham to Pogba. Combining comfort and control with uncompromised style, your gift will up his game with every pass. Alternatively, the Nemeziz range is designed for speed and agility—whilst the iconic Copa, one of the earliest football boots is built from a legacy of sophistication and style. Your gift could last a lifetime.

To show your support through the holiday season, why not buy him a football shirt? Whether he is a follower of Manchester United or Real Madrid, our range covers the best club and national jerseys. Comfortable, technical and stylish in any situation, your gift will look great on your football fan, from pub to stadium. And for those additional extras—keep him covered in all conditions with shin guards and goalkeeper gloves. No less suited for a kickabout with friends than a full-blown match situation.


As the temperatures drop, workout motivation typically falls. But we are here to help, with simple, understated training gear to keep things moving throughout the holiday season. If you are sick of seeing the same shoes being carried from outside to the treadmill, why not treat him to a dedicated pair of training shoes, ready for any workout?


For an additional winter layer, you can’t go wrong with Alphaskin tops and tights—providing comfort and compression, whilst keeping him cool and dry, whatever the conditions. And for carrying all that gear, our range of bags including duffels and backpacks will ensure that he can make the transition to workout with style. With room to spare, why not sneak in some training extras? Our accessories range covers all the bases, from yoga mats and towels to water bottles and gloves.


For timeless style that lasts with every season, keep it classic with the Originals range. Whether Stan Smith, Superstar or Continental 80, choose from iconic sneaker silhouettes and control the dials from understated to loud, with a range of colourways for each.

Originals-image-desktopAlways a staple, an Originals tracksuit provides comfort and style for any occasion. And in true seasonal spirit, why not pick matching versions for the rest of the family? Perfectly worn while watching films together when it’s cold outside.

If you are shopping for a classic sportswear fan who could use something different, how about expanding the stripes in his wardrobe with a winter-ready hoodie or sweatshirt? Ideal as a transitional layer, or worn beneath an Originals jacket. And for those smaller gifts, headwear and hats are always appreciated. Whether worn to keep him safe and warm from the snow or looking forward to sun—keep it classic throughout the year.
