7-on-7 Football: Best Gear for the Upcoming Year

7-on-7 Football: Best Gear for the Upcoming Year

One-handed catches, highlight-reel jukes, and in-your-face celebrations – the non-stop action of 7-on-7 football is back. Eastbay knows that 7-on-7 football comes down to two things, speed and style, so we’re here to highlight some top-tier gear that’ll look and feel as good as you do after burning that cornerback or making the game-winning interception.

CLEATS

Nike Vapor Untouchable 3 Pro

Built for the dynamic playmaker, the Nike Vapor Untouchable combines mesh and synthetic skins that let your foot breathe while still maintaining the durability you need. Its sleek design comes in a variety of colorways, showcasing the cleat’s electric speed on the field. Finally, the one-piece bootie has a tongueless construction, creating a sock-like fit that wraps around your ankle for comfort and control. If you’re the playmaker on offense or the chasedown artist on defense, then the Vapor Untouchable is the cleat for you.

adidas adiZero 8.0

The adidas adiZero 8.0 was made for players meant to stand out. From the stimulating Snowcone Pack colorways to the zebra-like 3-stripe life design, the adiZero 8.0 prioritizes uniqueness over all. Along with the personality this cleat brings to the gridiron, it was also specifically built with one thing in mind – speed. The knitted bootie upper reduces weight and the Sprintframe plate propels you forward with every step. For the player looking to make plays with speed and style, the adiZero 8.0 is right up your alley.

Under Armour Spotlight MC

True to its name, this cleat was constructed for athletes who crave the spotlight and live for the big moment. The Under Armour Spotlight MC is one of the most comfortable and lightweight cleats on the market. It features a SuperFoam insole that absorbs shock and utilizes the combination of bladed and conical studs to enhance your sprints, cuts, and stop with sharp acceleration. For game-long comfort and the ability to stop on a dime, you have to grab a pair of Spotlights.

GLOVES

Nike Vapor Knit 3.0

These gloves are the epitome of cool and comfortable. The Nike Vapor Knit 3.0 features a high-quality knit back that ensures airflow and snug support. They also have a modern, layered overlay design that’s stylish and practical, increasing durability and fit. This receiver glove will fit and feel like a second skin on the field.

Nike Vapor Jet 5.0

The most famous glove in football just got a little better. The Nike Vapor Jet 5.0 features lightweight padding around the thumb for protection from defenders while utilizing Nike’s classic magnigrip palm material that top players trust. These gloves were built to make the impossible catches possible.

adidas adiZero 5-Star 8.0

Looking for the stickiest gloves in the game? Look no further than the adiZero 5-Star 8.0. These gloves emphasize adidas’ famous GRIPTACK palm technology, providing the ultimate grip while catching the football. The stylish design on the gloves complements the unique colorways adidias showcases on their cleats. So, if you’re rocking the adiZero 8.0s on the feet, then you must get the gloves to match.

Under Armour Spotlight

Last but not least, Under Armour has created a pair of gloves chock-full of technology to help you make the tough catch in traffic. The Under Armour Spotlight gloves are made with high-compression HeatGear fabric that provides ventilation, while the mircoknit fabric allows for stretch and recovery. UA GlueGrip technology keeps the ball in your palms, and Power Catch panels limit distractions so you can make the precise play. These receiver gloves are lab tested and battle ready.

ACCESSORIES

Nike Hyperstrong Core Padded Forearm Shivers

When showing up to do battle on the gridiron, you better come protected. Nike’s Hyperstrong Forearm Shivers shield you from defenders without losing an inch on your range of motion.

Jordan Skull Cap

Show out in style with the Jordan Skull Cap. Dri-Fit fabric wicks away sweat to keep you dry and the tight, dynamic fit allows you to wear it under any type of hat or helmet.

7-on-7 Football Gear Guide

7-on-7 Football Gear Guide

 

7-on-7 football is growing at a rapid rate year after year. Thanks to its fast-paced play and high-scoring nature, it’s a great way for skill position players to keep improving as they prep for their fall sports season. A major perk that comes with playing 7-on-7 is the gear — most leagues allow athletes to wear flashier cleats, gloves, and clothing than they’re allowed during the fall football season. So what gear will help you stand out this year? We turned to arena football corner and YT star I Know Football for his expert picks on this season’s top 7 on 7 football gear.

“These are my more serious, performance cleats. If I want to play the best of the best, no holds barred, I’m definitely going to be rocking these. They have my favorite traction.”

 

Gloves

“I love the MagniGrip in the glove and its seamless fit. It has kind of a surgical look to it.”

“If you like Cutters and love that Cutters’ grip, these are perfect. They are machine washable and that grip is actually built into the glove material, so you’ll have some great durability.”

“When you’re out there, you want to be looking and feeling good. You want to make a statement. If you wear the adiMoji cleats, you need these.”

 

Apparel

 

Evapor Compression Apparel:

“They have so many different colors, so you can match with any team color. They are seamless, very lightweight, and eliminate distractions.”

 

Nike Vapor 3.0 Football Socks:

“You’ve got padding in the Achilles area here too, but you have some gripped ribbing at the bottom. If you wear cleats with NikeGrip tech, this gripped ribbing works in perfect sync with those cleats.”

 

Stance GameDay Socks:

“These have minimal branding so you can wear them with any other brand of cleat. Double-cushioned in the forefoot and left-to-right specific to give you that support in the midfoot.”

 

Accessories

 

Bicep Bands (Nike and adidas):

“Your swag will not be complete unless you have some bicep bands. You can rock these on your legs or your arms.”

 

Wilson GST 1003 Official Game Ball:

“The 1003 is real leather with a pebbled grip for quarterbacks. It’s the only football that has stitched-on laces. That makes it easier to throw and catch the ball.”

 

Wilson GST 1780 Composite Ball:

“The 1780 is at a lower price point than the 1003, but has a lot of the same technology and features. It still has those pebbled laces and is still very tacky.”

 

Battle Sports Oxygen Mouthguard:

“This is a fan favorite for a lot of people. There are plenty of different designs. It’s also pretty inexpensive, and it’s not a boil-and-bite. So you can use it right away.”

 

Nike Brasilia Large Duffle:

“It’s big enough to hold all that gear I just showed you – multiple cleats, footballs, you name it.”
