Denzel, the owner of Sports Specialties, has been serving the Seattle soccer market for as long as I can remember. Cool, eclectic place. I sometimes go in during my lunch hour to see whats up. If you need a cheap fix, this is the place. I once went in having forgotten my gear for a game that night. I got cleats for approx $15, Socks: $2, Shorts: $6, Red Jersey: $8. I also picked up a decent ball for $15. Though he carries some name brand stuff, a lot of it is european branded stuff you & I have never heard of. Also, if you need cheap uniforms check it out. Several years ago, I had to get uni's for a weekend tournament. He has a stash of overstock upstairs. 18 longsleeved jerseys w/ #'s for about $90 out the door. Need a visual? Think of "Stupid Prices" meets "Soccer West".
