THE FUTBOL JERSEY AS A CANVAS

A collection of my top 10 favorite kits.

Holland 1988 Home Kit

Adidas made this iconic orange, white, and black geometric jersey that the Dutch only wore for one tournmanent, in which they won:
The Euro ‘88 Tournament in
West Germany.

Man. United ‘91-’92 Away Kit

The Manchester United 1991-1992 away shirt boasts a unique design in white, blue and red. The standout feature is a unique all-over graphic print on the front. This was the last Adidas made jersey before Umbro took over for Manchester United.

USA 1994
Away Kit

This 1994 USA away kit is so ugly that it's iconic. Inspired by denim material, made by Adidas, and worn during for the first World Cup on American soil. Unpolished, loud, and with no regard for international tradition, the kit certainly was uniquely American.

England WNT 2019 Away Kit

This beautiful Lioness jersey was designed by Nike for the 2019 Women's World Cup in France. It debuts a custom hand-drawn print highlighting specific flora native to the counties and regions of England: The common poppy, the rose, etc.

Nigeria 2018 Home Kit

Inspired by the '94 Nigeria World Cup jersey, Nike designed this master-piece for the Super Eagles to wear for the 2018 World Cup. The graphic print symbolizes abstracted eagle feathers. Its bold green design broke records with 3million pre-orders before the tournament even started.

Mexico 1998 Home Kit'

This Aba Sport designed jersey worn during the 1998 world cup is arguably the best Mexican futbol jersey ever. If there is one thing that symbolizes the traditions and culture of the country it is the Aztec calendar, which appears on the whole jersey.

FC Barcelona 2020 3rd Jersey

The FC Barcelona 2019-2020 Third Jersey brings team pride details together with performance elements. Channeling the pride of Barcelona, an allover diamond-shaped jacquard pattern is inspired by the city's coat of arms. The Nike designed teal jersey draws inspiration from the 1990s while featuring the iconic 90s Nike 'Futura' logo on the right chest.

African Unity 2010 Kit

The Unity jersey was designed to be worn by 12 African nations. The brown pantone was created by mixing actual soil samples from Ghana, Ivory Coast, South Africa and Cameroon. The color gradient transitions from brown to blue as a metaphor for soil to sky.

Juventus 2016 Away Jersey

This Juventus 2016 Away jersey
was inspired by the jerseys worn in the club's first years. With a pale pink base, it has details in black and white, such as the traditional Adidas 3-stripes. The sleeve cuffs are made in a different material and stand out for their pink color.

France WNT 2019 Away Kit

This France away kit, designed by Nike and carries a unique hexadot pattern referencing both the country’s informal nickname (l'hexagone) and the dotted styles of French fashion. It shares the same inner neck phrase, “Nos Différences Nous Unissent”, in rose gold detailing and an Art Deco font.
