Can the Nike Park 18 Range Answer Your Side’s Problems?

Nike’s new football catalogue is out and live on Kitlocker.com. This year the brand has not only released four new match shirt designs, but also three new training ranges. In the first of our overviews, we guide you through the Nike Park 18 range.

The Park 18 collection brings you a fresh look from the manufacturing giants at extremely low prices. We guide you through the price, design and quality of the new apparel here.

Premium Brand, Budget Prices

Taking the name of their simple-but-slick match kit design, Nike’s Park 18 range is perfect for clubs on a budget.

Football, particularly at a grassroots level, can be expensive to maintain. Teams can often look to save by sacrificing the need for new apparel in order to survive. Nike are fortunately aware of this. The release of the collection is aimed at those who do not have much to spend.

For the range, Nike have set the recommended retail price much lower than one might expect considering the brand’s size. Throw in Kitlocker.com’s standard 25% off RRP online, and you can pick up products from as little as £6.72. Teamwear does not come much cheaper than that, no matter what brand you go with.

At such a low price-point, our customers can now pick up bargain options from not only the likes of Stanno, Joma and Macron but now also Nike. This is great news for those who might have felt such a reputable brand would be out of their reach.

It is not just those in football who will be pleased to hear of the affordability of the range, though. We’re excited to see how the education sector reacts to the range, which will create a professional sporting look around campuses. Colleges, sixth forms, colleges and universities have been crying out for a ultra-cheap Nike range. The release is great news for those offering sports courses at their establishments who want to create a professional-feel and manage finances responsibly.

Iconic Nike Football Design

But cutting costs means settling for a substandard design, right? Not necessarily, and definitely not this time. Like the Matchday Park products, the training range offers an effective, stripped-back feel. The garments – of course – retain the brand’s iconic Swoosh, meaning that your side can look professional for less this year. It’s a win-win.

The Park 18 range offers five different products. Included is a training top, tracksuit jacket, crew top, and rain jacket. All these items feature an iconic Nike Football Look with stitched shoulder stripes. They perfectly compliment the range’s new Knit Pants, and complete the outfit.

Nike have launched the Park 18 range in both children’s and men’s sizes. Whilst there is no women’s fit for the Park 18 range, Nike do address this need in the new catalogue. The Women’s Academy 18 range is a great option for those involved in the ladies game.

The tops and jackets are available in black, royal blue, green and red. That covers the core colour schemes of most teams trainingwear and is certainly sufficient in our eyes. There is also the option of a white training top, whilst the bottoms are available in black or navy.

Whatever colour your side chooses, you’re guaranteed to look the part.

Park 18 Exceeds Expectations in Quality-Terms

With all these classy options available, the price means that the quality is lacking, right? Again, you could be forgiven for thinking this. Like the rest of Nike’s 2018 trainingwear garments, each product is made from 100% polyester. The training top, crew, tracksuit jacket and tech knit pants all feature Nike’s Dri-Fit technology. With these products, you can train in a dry and comfortable manner throughout your session with sweat pulled away.

The items may not be as thick as their Academy 18 or Squad 17 counterparts, but they are certainly resilient. Nike’s design team have perfectly tackled the budget-market at their first attempt to bring affordable quality to our customers.

Kitlocker Opinion: Look the Part for Less with Nike Park 18

We think that the Park 18 trainingwear range might just be the perfect collection for those looking to save. At such low prices, your club won’t need to increase subs fees at all this season or next. The range is available until the end of 2019, which leaves you plenty of time to get kitted out. In addition, this means that you’ll be able to kit out players who join half-way through the season.

You can shop the entire range now on Kitlocker.com at 25% off RRP by clicking HERE. Just imagine what your club could do with the savings made. Whilst it might not be enough to lure Alexis Sanchez to your side, you can bet that it will make a difference to those involved with your side!
