Christmas is almost upon us! But if you’re anything like us, this time of year can be filled with just as much stress as it does merriment. So to save you a mad dash around the High Street on Christmas Eve, we’ve put together a set of Christmas Gift Guides which should have all bases covered when buying for an average Joe. In this guide, we’ll be talking all things Sport!
New Balance Furon 3.0 Pro AG Football Boots
Website: New Balance
If your Joe plays football regularly, a pair of boots is a great gift at Christmas. Yes, you can always grab a cheap pair from the bargain bin but they won’t last long and they can also be extremely uncomfortable. So we say get the best – and we’d recommend these Furon 3.0 Pros from New Balance. If he plays on grass, you can get the studded model but if he’s into his 5-a-side, these AG versions are ideal. The sleek silhouette comes with a superior fit, while the lightweight TPU and polyester mesh upper enhances ball control. Built for acceleration, the TPU AG soleplate offers traction on all ground pitches.
adidas Terrex Agravic Trainers
On a similar note, a decent pair of running shoes is guaranteed to get you a proper Thank You Card. And these waterproof adidas Terrex Agravic trainers couldn’t be more ideal for the winter. Offering grip off-road, these high quality running shoes guarantee dryness and breathability on rocky, rooted terrain, while a responsive EVA midsole supports the foot for control on uneven ground. Like most adidas trainers these days, they also come with Boost technology, which is offers some extra cushioning ever. They’re finished off with an outsole made from Continental Rubber, offering extraordinary grip even in the wettest conditions.
Berghaus Twentyfourseven 20 Rucksack
But if you’re looking for something for the everyday, this Twentyfourseven 20 Rucksack from Berghaus is a great all-rounder. Wherever he’s heading, this versatile rucksack has him covered with everything from zipped pockets for his sunglasses to more technical features like a handy walking pole holder. It also features a breathable foam and air mesh back system, which means whether he’s on the morning commute or walking up a mountain, his back won’t get too sweaty. There’s also some extra padding and a height-adjustable chest strap to keep things nice and comfy.
The North Face Ultra Fastpack III Mid GORE-TEX Walking Boots
Speaking of mountain hiking, these The North Face Ultra Fastpack men’s walking boots will be a godsend for any serious trekker. Built for fast, speedy hikes, these technical men’s The North Face walking boots strike the perfect balance between comfort and protection with the upper weave engineered for targeted reinforcement and breathability. They’re also finished in a bold and technical monotone, which means they not only perform, they look the part too.
HH LIFA Active Crew Performance Base Layer
Website: Helly Hansen
One for any Joe who leads an active lifestyle, we love this HH LIFA Active performance base layer. Delivering superior moisture management and lightweight insulation, this base layer is ideal for everyone from runners to those hitting the golf course in need of warming up. The HH LIFA Active features a two layer construction with 100% Lifa fibre next to skin and wicking technical fibres outside. The result is an unbeatable combination for moisture management, lightweight warmth and all day comfort.
SunGod Custom Revolts Ski Goggles
Perfect for those Joes heading to the slopes this ski season, we absolutely love these custom Revolts ski goggles from SunGod. Completely customisable, head over to the SunGod website and you can choose your Frame, Lens and Strap from a range of colours and designs. They also perform too. Featuring refined 4KO snow lenses, the Revolts have been made to enhance contrast and optimise clarity on the slopes, regardless of the terrain and light conditions. Extremely lightweight and durable, they also feature Clip-Lock Technology which means changing lenses has never been easier.
The North Face Guardian Etip Gloves
With the chill setting in, a pair of men’s gloves is always a nice idea for Christmas. But rather than get your Joe some basic cotton gloves which soak through at the slightest sign of rain, why not get something that really performs? Take a look at the lightweight but effective The North Face Men’s Apex Etip 2 Gloves. Complete with touch screen capabilities and a durable water repellent finish, you’ll struggle to find a more versatile and unrestricting glove this winter. The Heatseaker insulation provides an extra layer for warmth, while the silicone grip pattern on the palm give added control and grip. There are gloves and there are men’s The North Face gloves. These are the latter.
So there we have it, our round-up of all the best Sports gear around this yuletide! Also don’t forget to check out our other cracking Christmas Gift Guides below…
