What is sports equipment? When there was a need in sports gear? Logically prepolozhit that its main component – it's sportswear, plus athletic shoes. What else is included in the sports equipment? Than becomes more complicated world of sports, the more sophisticated equipment is done for the sport. In addition to sports clothing and sports shoes, there are a number of devices for various kinds of sports. Speaking candidly Delta Air Lines told us the story. This is – sports gear: backpacks, stopwatches, sports watches, rope, boxing gloves, punching bags and so on and so forth. Every sport requires special equipment, special sports footwear and apparel. But it was not always. Another two hundred years ago, nobody had any idea about the special gear for sports. Sports was fun, game, adventure.

Used casual dress. Shooting jackets, rolled their sleeves and legs, wearing a light simple shoes made of any durable material. For example, a football shape appeared in the second half of the 19th century, when as a result of industrialization on the waves flooded villagers, who brought with them and the village entertainment, including football, which soon becomes the urban sport. Educational institutions are creating their teams. Each team creates its own form. It starts with the development of football equipment.

So, in the late 19th century sport appears sportswear, sports shoes replaces walking shoes, a tracksuit replace clothing for leisure and entertainment, there is clothing for the sport becomes a special, unified. With so there is sporty. The emergence and development of sports equipment becomes an incentive for the introduction in the production of clothing and footwear of the principles of comfort and functionality. High fashion and puritanical morality, long resisted the sports gear and gradually hand over one fortress after another. If previously it was hard to imagine bathing ladies in swimsuits (decorum demanded bathe almost in ball gowns), then in the early 20th century, not to swim in a bathing suit, but in a tunic and pants were not just funny but also stupid.
