The leaves are changing, the air is getting cooler, and you’re tailgating all weekend long.

Yeah, it’s football season.

But if you want to beat your friends in pickup football at the park—and look cool while doing it—you’re going to need some new gear. Those leftover high school cleats that've been collecting dust in the back of your closet? Not going to cut it. It's time to donate those to your kid brother and get some new footwear.

A fresh pair of cleats can help you run fast like Cam Newton, cut around defenders like Odell Beckham, and salsa-dance your way into the endzone like Victor Cruz—or at least feel like you are. And hey: feel good, play good, right?

Here are some of the coolest options for the season to get ready for those football battles at the park—and with your family at Thanksgiving.
