The Starting 11 Gift Guide 2018!

This gift guide is dedicated to the fashion-forward Soccerista who loves to play with style, both on and off the field. For the most part, we stayed away from the big brands and tried to curate something a little more “boutique-ie”. Our selections are guided by whimsy and wonder. What’s incredible about being involved with women’s soccer is the number of companies and brands that are popping up. This is a great time to be involved in the women’s game, and we LOVE TO SHARE!

Here’s to kicking off (pun intended) a joyful holiday season!

1. Goal 5 Combo Shinguard Tight $89

Yeah, we know you’re tough but why freeze on the pitch in winter if you don’t have to? Goal Five has come up with a genius design that keeps you warm while keeping your legs from becoming a roadmap from hell. A terrific addition to your winter workouts.

2. Poo-Purrie $9.95

Everyone does it. Not everyone needs to smell it. Most odor eliminators are as “natural” as pleather pants. But Poo~Pourri takes natural seriously AND gets rid of odor. We ♥️ that Sydney Leroux is using her global power to clean up the world’s stink! We trust in Syd because we’re certain the last couple of years have been full of poop with little Cassius now wearing his big boy pants.


3. Surfer Elite II Wet/Dry Bag $55

No, it’s not a soccer backpack, but we couldn’t resist because it’s so effortlessly rugged and urban. Consider it your new BFF for both wet and dry land. Durable, rugged, and stylish.

4. Fly Wing It T-Shirt by prfctlfe $30

We love this street-style brand out of San Jose, California. Their apparel designs imbue subtle soccer concepts. There’s something earthy and radiant about their graphics and we love that they’re not necessarily soccer on the nose. It’s more an inspiration and reflection of their love of the game. Fun fact: Owned by MLS player Quincy Amarikawa.

5. Commes des Garçions Chuck Taylors $135

When Commes Des Garçions dropped their line, PLAY, into the world with a bright red heart, we fell in love. And when the Converse collab launched, we knew something special was about to happen. Megan Rapinoe sported these kicks on the USWNT’s latest trip abroad and looked like a glam European movie star (hello Tilda Swinton ♥️). They ain’t cheap but their cool factor is worth a million bucks.

6. GSN Yin Yang Soccer Ball  $45

Our GSN soccer ball kills it on every surface. Yin or Yang? Attack or Defend? Got game? Get a ball that reflects the stylish, well rounded player that you  are.

7. De Fút Women’s Crop Top $28

De Fút is a sexy brand that mixes modern concepts with vintage style. We love their cool, clean designs. They’re committed to being fashion forward by bringing new and classic fútbol styles into the mainstream. You can get 15% off with this promo code: GSN15


8.The Medusae 3 Elite by Umbro $225

This is a modern, innovative boot with the classic Umbro look and feel. Super slick (and not cheap!) but if you’re splurging or get lucky by receiving a pair for Hanukkah or Christmas, count your blessings. The fact that Ashlyn screams their praises only makes us want them even more.

9. I Am Gia Sweatpants $220

We love it when a player identifies with a brand in the way Kristie Mewis is doing with I AM GIA. It’s a bold and sexy brand that pushes the limits and manages to offer another interpretation on sporty. There’s a vital nature even the most daring pieces feel athletic, strong, and like a must have.

i am gia sweatpants10. Corduroy Baseball Cap by Madewell $19.99

Baby, it’s cold outside! Worried you’re not the beanie lover during the chilly months ahead, don’t worry – how about a cozy, corduroy, tomboy-style baseball hat? Super cute and chill, Malory Pugh looks adorable in this deconstructed, All American classic.

11. Do Yu Hoodie by Rapinoe Brand $29.25 on sale!

We love the gentle call to action that this sweatshirt inspires. You either do, or you don’t. And if you’re anything like Megan Rapinoe, you’re gonna do it with all your heart and soul. Just the right amount of snug and loose – you’ll never want to take this off!
