ds (6) loves his outdoor football on a Saturday morning. This Saturday the temperature was 3 degrees and all the resilant little 5-7 year olds were running about with their little football shorts and blue legs!!!!!!
Last year noticed some were wearing their football shorts and football socks but with some sort of base layer covering their full legs (under socks and shorts) to keep their legs warm. This means they can keep wearing their teams kit and not have to wear tracksuit bottoms. Asked in sports shop and got a blank look. He tried internet and no joy.
dn's boyfriend suggested leggings, so bought ds a pair of girls white leggings to try (took a bit of encouragement to get him to try on) and they look ridiculous (baggy around the knees).
Thought about girls tights instead, but not sure he would wear them or too risky about the other boys finding out!
does anyone know what I am talking about and where I can buy them?
You want these people. I suppose the standard recommendation is 'we bought off them and it was fine'. Conversely, I can recommend them because, although we had a slight problem, they were lovely about sorting it out.
I refused to spend the sort of money that being called a base layer commands so ds (6) wears his ski thermals (black). They look very similar to the expensive stuff but a fraction of the cost and have kept ds warm so far this year and last season.
