Goalkeeper Gear from SoccerStop.com
FIFA Laws of the Game specify that goalies are required to wear a differentiating kit from the officials and match players. Most goalies wear a collection of goalkeeper gear including padded shirts and shorts or pants for protection when diving, along with padded gloves for better grip and performance. Goalie gloves are not required, but it is very uncommon for a keeper to opt against them with all the advantages they provide. Glove wash is an important goalkeeper gear item to keep gloves sticky and well preserved.
