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.

 

Cleats

“With the tons of flashy designs, you can make a statement with swag during 7-on-7.”

 

Jordan Retro XI Cleats:

“These cleats are super soft, super comfortable. You’re going to be able to look good. They have so many different colors of these.”

 

Nike Vapor Untouchable Pro 3 Cleats:

“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

 

Nike Vapor Jet 5 Gloves:

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

 

Cutters Rev Pro 3.0 Gloves:

“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.”

 

Adidas Adizero 7.0 Gloves:

“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.”

 


Those are I Know Football’s picks — make sure to follow him on YouTube and Instagram for even more updates on the latest football gear.
