It’s #SickKitFriday once again! Let’s see what the football gods have graced us with this week, shall we?
Copa Football recently partnered with FC Barcelona to bring back some of the club’s most historic kits in a great way.
Like all of Copa’s shirts, the “kits” are made entirely from cotton. The yellow long-sleeve (left) is inspired by Barcelona’s 1974-1975 away kit, which is definitely the most attractive use of the “seat belt” kit design, and was donned by club legends like Johan Cruyff. On the right is a shirt inspired by the 1980-81 top, which is essentially just the 1976-77 shirt with an added collar. Copa also made a shirt based on the club’s first official jersey and crest, from the 1899 season, and more.
Kawasaki Frontale may have finished 3rd last year in the J-League, but this new away kit for the upcoming season has shot them up to #1 in our hearts.
Just look at it! The traditional Frontale blue, mixed with some gray, splatter-painted on the front of an otherwise all-white kit makes for an incredibly unique kit design. Plus, the Puma Formstripe on the sleeves serves to reduce the weight while improving the fit of the jersey, if you want some aerodynamics along with your style.
FC Copenhagen’s birthday suit, for their 25th anniversary, is great. It’s just a plain and simple white shirt, with sleek accents coming in the form of Copenhagen-blue Adidas stripes down the side and at the bottom of the sleeve, as well as in the “1992-2017” anniversary marker above the sponsor. Underneath the numbers reads “Success is temporary / Loyalty is forever.”
The away and third kit are the same simple design in blue and red, respectively, with the sleeve stripe and front sponsor flipped to white.
This Argentine side’s new home shirt is basically the kit version of their crest (sure, it’s based on a Nike template, but pretty interesting that it worked out that way): dark blue-and-red stripes. The stripes continue at the very bottom of the back of the shirt, but most of the back is just solid blue.
And here, as always, we got our kits out for Harambe.
Which new kit is your favorite? Which one of ours? Let us know!
And, as always, thanks to FootyHeadlines for the sick scoop.
