Asda’s new Friends range includes sweatshirts, pyjamas and sliders and it’s getting rave reviews

Could we BE anymore excited!?

Jamie Roberts




Yesterday we brought you the news that Asda is doing pairs of Friends trainers for just £15.

Well, they’re now sold out online unfortunately, but it turns out the supermarket’s new range of Friends branded clothing doesn’t stop there.

Asda George is also selling sweatshirts, pyjamas, socks and sliders, and they’ve been getting rave reviews online – one person said of the sold out white trainers: “Love love love these trainers, so fun and cheerful, as well as stylish and quite simple awesome.”

First up is a black sweatshirt themed on the popular TV series, which comes with umbrella branding, and according to Asda it’s ‘perfect for adding an extra layer to your weekend looks.’

The sweatshirt will set you back £15, and it’s gone down a storm, with perfect 5 star reviews. One happy customer said: “I bought this for my granddaughter’s 13th birthday and her face was a picture when she opened it as she is watching the series for the third time and absolutely loves it!”

If you’re after some casual footwear but don’t want to wait until the trainers are back in stock, how about some black pool sliders?

They’re a bargain at just £6, but you best be quick if you want some as they only have size small left.


Asda also has some Friends pyjamas going, although they’re kids rather than adult sizes – the sizes go up to age 14 though, so any small adults might just fit into them.

They’ll set you back £9 a pair, so get yourself over to the George website if you want to treat your kids – or if you’re a particularly small adult.

There’s also some Friends socks going for £5 for a pack of three, with one reviewer saying: “Great socks!! Lovely quality, washed well, daughter loved them!”


It’s not the first time Asda has sold a range of Friends clothing, with the supermarket releasing a load of goodies last year – all of which are currently sold out, with no indication when they might be back.

These also went down a treat, overwhelmingly getting five star reviews, and included a ‘We were on a break!’, ‘How you doin?’, and ‘Here come the meat sweats’ slogan t-shirts, as well as Central Perk pyjamas.
