About Us

Football Nation have been supplying football shirts, boots & teamwear for nearly 10 years now. Formed back in 2006, the company has gone from strength to strength since then, even through the tough economic period.

At first, the shop on Lothian Road was all there was and it was run by Steven & Stewart themselves. As the business began to take off it was clear more staff and space was needed.

Now Football Nation has 11 staff members and our own dedicated teamwear showroom. The teamwear showroom opened in 2014 and we're incredibly proud of it. Based in Peffermill, the showroom displays exactly why we should be your first choice for teamwear - as we offer more choice than the majority of other retailers.

As you'll be able to see on our website, we stock adidas, Errea, Joma, mitre, Prostar, Uhlsport & Umbro teamwear.

We're also heavily involved in the professional side of the game, supplying team kits to the likes of Livingston, Cowdenbeath & Albion Rovers. In addition to this we are boot sponsors for several professional players.

The players wearing our boots are: Nicky Clark (Glasgow Rangers), Keaghan Jacobs (Livingston), Lewis Vaughan (Raith Rovers), Dom Thomas (Motherwell) & Joelle Murray (Hibs Ladies).

We offer the best selection of football boots in the city of Edinburgh, with adidas, Joma, Nike & Puma boots in stock to suit players of all levels and ability - right up to the pro game. 

Now it's always nice to know who you're dealing with before you place an order, so we invite you to take a moment here to meet the staff at Football Nation.

Steven Dow

Role: Director
Favourite Club: Livingston

Steven is one of the co-founders of the business and is often seen at Livingston's home games as he's a huge fan of the West Lothian club. He is married to business manager Amanda & they have a very excitable, friendly dog named Ginny.

Steven seeks out new business for Football Nation and is the man responsible for a lot of the exciting brands that we stock.

Stewart Everest

Role: Director
Favourite Club: Arsenal

Stewart co-founded the business with Steven in 2006 and is a massive Arsenal fan, often seen celebrating the club's ability to finish 4th. When he's not at the gym, Stewart is organising teamwear orders to ensure every little detail of your purchase is spot on.

Amanda Dow

Role: Business Manager
Favourite Club: Livingston

Hailing from Northern Ireland, Amanda oversees the general running of the business, including but not restricted to, recruitment, payslips & HR.

Amanda can often be seen trying to prevent Ginny from running out of the back door and escaping.  

Chris Dykes

Role: Retail Manager
Favourite Clubs: Rangers & Newcastle United

Chris manages the Lothian Road store and also processes orders made online. He is a keen golfer, spending almost every lunch break watching golfing tips videos on youtube... we don't know if they work or not.

Dave Black

Role: Teamwear Quotes & Sales
Favourite Clubs: Livingston FC

Dave joined Football Nation Teamwear in the summer of 2014 and has been busy processing 100s of orders and quotes for our customers. Like Steven, he is a huge Livingston fan and help's the club with its media responsibilities on match days.

Dave also plays as a striker for Livingston GS - a club that plays in the supporter's league.

Christopher Smith

Role: Digital Media Executive
Favourite Clubs: Hearts & Crystal Palace

Chris joined in September 2014 and is responsible for the running of the Football Nation website, as well as creating content for our social media channels.

Chris is a keen footballer, but unfortunately he's also a keen Pizza Hut enthusiast - those two things don't really go hand in hand very well.

Andy Bownie

Role: Retail Sales
Favourite Club: Hearts

Andy is the man you're most likely to see when you walk into our Lothian Road store. If you need advice about football boots or shirt sizes - he's your guy.
