2011 Pitch Holiday Gift Guide

adidas f50 miCoach with Speed Cell I $200

We can't all have Lionel Messi's foot skills — but, thanks to adidas, we CAN have his footwear. Called the first-ever "soccer shoe with a brain," the adidas F50 miCoach is the first-ever soccer shoe to incorporate adidas' groundbreaking miCoach technology. A Speed Cell embedded in the shoe's sole keeps constant readings of your player's top speed, average speed, work rate, distance traveled and other key stats, then lets you download all of that information to your home computer after the game for instant analysis. Watch your improvement over time, learn at which points of the game you gain or lose speed, compare yourself to your friends and teammates, or even go online and see how you stack up against Messi and the top players in the world!

Names like Messi … Beckham … Casillas … Cannavaro … In "A Beautiful Game," author Tom Watt seeks out the world's greatest players to learn about their lives as youth players, the towns and fields they came from, and the drive that made them champions. Filled with photos from around the world and behind-the-scenes tidbits from the young lives of the game's greatest stars, "A Beautiful Game" is both an enlightening soccer tale for older fans, and a series of compelling stories to inspire the stars of tomorrow.
