Pre-season is officially underway, and with it, the new away kits have been revealed by the club as well. Unsurprisingly, they match exactly the leaks we saw a month ago. Which also means that they are just as garish as feared.
My previous objections to this kit still stand. I dig the hoops, but it appears that they don't actually wrap around the body. So half-hoops? And the bright shoulder stripes really don't fit with the rest.
The official press release from adidas claims that the new kits "combine the strong traditions of a proud club and it‘s renewed commitment to become the best once more" and throws words around like "disruptive" and "fresh". Well, they are a bit stinky indeed.
A new picture of the third kit surfaced as well, and it also matches the previous leak. So how's a plain white t-shirt disruptive, adidas?
The away kits are on sale now and will be worn for the first time on July 30th, in the friendly against Real Madrid.
