Where can I find a good selection of football/soccer shirts in Seoul? The Adidas stores only sell Real Madrid/AC Milan shirts, and the Nike stores only sell Arsenal/Man. Utd/Barcelona shirts.

Any other stores around that have a much wider selection, or am I basically restricted to ordering online? I'm looking for authentic shirts, not fakes or rip-offs.

Thanks.

If you want a quality shirt, go to a game and buy it there. I mean Seoul FC, Suwon bluewings, or any other Korean team.

I wish I had a store name and address for you but I've seen a clothing store in Itaewon that sells western size clothing to foreigners, many of the military go there. They have all the football shirts and the ones they dont have they can order from a book and if you pay there, they can mail it to you in a couple days or pick up from the store. Good quality and not too expensive. Much lower than the Nike and Addidas stores.

I appreciate the responses, however, I'm not looking for a K-league footy top, but the new Juventus 2011/12 home shirt. I seriously doubt my chances of finding one here, but if someone knows a place then by all means please post the info here.

the best advice I can give is ask someone on vacation to pick it up for you. a lot of teachers on on vacation. but you never know itaewon might be a good place to check out.

It were the European clubs I was referring to. Near the Itaewon exit is where the store is. My advice is ask around there. The guy had many different clubs as well as national shirts and a catolog for the clubs he didn't have on hand. I ordered one and it took a couple days to mail it to me.

Soryy, I wish I could be more helpful with an address and name.

ive seen juve shirts for sale in myeongdong before. there are also a bunch of soccer stores near dongdaemun as well as other sports stores. usually stuff there is anywhere between 10% to 20% off from other nike/adidas stores. all of it is legit too.

@Koreadays,

Good to see a fellow Juventino. I'll have a look at their website and check out the prices. I just wonder whether it'll be cheaper to buy one here rather than online + shipping costs.

@sonicmatt,

Do you remember where you saw those stores in Myeongdong/Dongdaemun? Subway exit?

Thanks.

Here are a few online shops that are bona fide, I've ordered from them all, and when you combine items, shipping isn't really that expensive.

www.soccershopusa.com --Latino-run shop from the states--some really good deals.

www.theonionbag.com--I think it's based in New Jersey, also pretty good.

www.subsidesports.com--UK shop that has some steals.

And finally,

www.classicfootballshirts.co.uk--Some phenomenal deals on older shirts, some used, some new, and the shipping fee is very very minimal.

All else fails, use a reputable dealer from the German Ebay site. Best service I've ever had, best products, never once had a problem with them.

@Myeongdong- cant remember which nike store, but i believe it was on that main shopping street that forever 21 is on. its been awhile.
@Dongdaemun- its right near the Seoul bank on this map, near the physical training section. look for Migloire and look down, right across the street. All they sell is Nike soccer stuff and and other shoes. I think they do names for a small price too. http://www.korea-hotel-reservations.com/dongdaemun_market_map.html
