Kids' footy season is coming. Here are the best pieces of gear they'll need.

Rebel
Thanks to our brand partner, Rebel

Parents – your work is not done just yet. Sure, you’ve done a great job of getting the kids back to school for another year, but now’s the time to tackle what’s coming up – gear for all the extra activities, including sports.

The great news for football parents – which is many of us - is that there’s a place known as ‘the home of football’ – rebel. Not only will you find the range and sizes you need, but rebel also stock exclusive footy kit that your kids will love.

Oh, and that’s built for purpose, and value for money. Dare I call it a one-stop shop? Especially useful if you have more than one kid to kit out.

On top of all that, yes, click and collect is available if you want to purchase online – but the staff in store at rebel are full of knowledge if you’re the research type (as I am).

These are some of the stand out footy items you can, ahem, catch at rebel.

Nike 

The Nike Tiempo Legend VIII Club Kids Football Boots ($49.99) are exclusive to rebel. A great starter boot, their soft synthetic ensures comfort and performance on both natural and artificial surfaces.

The Nike Mercurial Vapor 14 Club Kids Football Boots ($49.99) are perfect for little kids (pre school age), and are a new season style at rebel. They're specifically designed with a ‘grippy’ texture on the upper to enhance connection with the ball, and soft lining for a comfortable fit for beginners to a little more advanced.

Then, there's the Nike Mercurial Superfly 8 Academy Kids Football Boots ($99.99) - like a second-skin fit for kids who are no longer beginners. They also have conical studs to provide excellent traction for a more serious game.

Adidas 

Behold the adidas Superlative X Ghosted .4 Football Boots ($59.99) – a cool name, backed by the superior performance of a lightweight boot…which means speed. Yet still super affordable at rebel.

The adidas Superlative Predator Freak .3 Football Boots feature a design called ‘Demonscale’ – an effect on the upper sole intended to enhance control of the ball. This is a boot for kids wanting to work on their foot skills and instincts. (Looks pretty cool, too.)

Demonskin 2.0 rubber ridges improves visual performance and enhances control when connecting with the ball. A primeknit upper improves comfort and agility.

Then there's the Puma Future Z 4.1 Kids Football Boots. Lightweight for speed, durable, and studs arranged for maximum traction.

Most importantly, they've got grooviest design (but don’t use that word when talking about them to your kids).
