Some of them are comfortable some are not.
Leather Helmets and that was about it at the time.
football players put air in theIR helmets because it is used to fill up space if the helmet is too big or some helmets have special pads that blow up that are more comfortable
Football helmets that have visors on them are used to help protect the player's eyes from the sunlight, dirt or grass. An example of a football player that uses this type of helmet is Chevis Jackson.

In the earliest days of football in the 1860s some players simply tied a bandana around their heads. There weren't even leather football helmets then. In those days there were brutal plays. Players actually trampled on opposing team members, yet there was no protection for players' heads. 18 deaths were reported. The earliest leather football helmets were invented by a Navy player in 1893 after his doctor warned him that one more kick to the head could kill or paralyze him for life. The player asked a local blacksmith to improvise a leather harness hat to protect his head. Thus the first football helmet was born. Soon other players created additional styles of leather football helmets to protect their heads and ears. Styles included the early beehive leather football helmet, the flat-top leather football helmets, and the dogear leather football helmet. The colors began to show up on early 1940s leather football helmets. Before that most helmets were plain natural leather either brown, cordovan, or black. Color leather football helmets allowed the quarterback to better see the receiver at long distances when he was far down the field. So more and more teams began to paint their leather football helmets to put some visibility sizzel into their games. Gradually in the late 1940s the leather football helmet began to be replaced by early plastics. However many of the early plastic football helmets shattered and caused injury. So, the leather football helmet survived through the World War II years and lingered into the early 1950s. Some pooreer high school teams and JR high teams used old leather helmets right into the 1960s and 70s. But gradually the old leather football helmet was replaced by the plastics.
Probably not. Gladiator helmets came in many different styles, depending on the type of gladiator. Some had visors and a grill over the front of the face. They would be very impractical on a football field, as a football player has to see wide range, while a gladiator mainly only had to see what was directly in front of him.
There are a lot of materials used in football helmets some are: leather and molded polycarbonate.

Aria helmets are a pretty good brand and they are not expensive. While there are some brands that are cheaper, safety is not something you want to be cheap about. This is for your own good.
They pretty much come in all colors
Yes. Some teams have done "retro" uniforms including helmets (partly in tribute, partly as a marketing ploy, I presume). The Cowboys annually have a white helmet with blue star when they wear their retro white and blue jerseys paying homage to the early 60s unis.
The official colors are black and gold but they do have some white in their jersey
Their Gaelic Football colours are black, with some white. Their soccer team normally play in red.
There have been many improvements to football helmets since the first organized game was played. The most important is that helmets are no longer leather, but rather they are padded sheets of molded metal. The helmet is now form fitted to the player with removable chin straps and some even include speakers so that players can hear the play. As technology improves the helmet is likely not done evolving.
I play football so I know about football helmets. They are hard on the out side and soft in the inside. There are pads lined in the helmet. Some brands of helmets have an air tank that you fill with air to make it tighter. There is also the face mask that protects the face, a chin strap that holds the helmet on, and a mouth guard to reduce concussions and protect your teeth.
Here are some Miscs that are helmets.
The pros wear anything from Schutt to Riddell and some custom ones as well. Just go to Schutt or Riddells website.
Football has changed for many reasons. One is because the people have just grown tired of the old and wanted to see some new. Another reason it has changed is for the safety of it , which includes adding helmets to the games.
Football kickers have different face mask to have a better view of where they are kicking since a kicker is usually only in for that purpose for example kickoff, punting, and field goals.
