2018 MLS Kits

Recommended Posts

Everything else may be the same but the previous leaks clearly showed a full color badge.

Fun fact: Orlando City was originally white with red trim instead of purple. Was changed late in the process.

Yikes...that would have been nearly a knockoff of Atlanta's away kit last year, wouldn't it?

I think the idea was for it to be a nod to the USL days

...is that just a straight black top? No subtle patterns? *sigh*

 

EDIT: Jock tag seems to be a wing with some writing around it. Looks kind of odd floating in a circle.

Looks like it has the Scotland 2018 kit pattern on it.

The black kit is exactly what I wanted...except for that stupid YouTube logo. 0 stars.

I actually would've preferred no sublimated pattern -- I think, given that it's their first kit, the simplest and most timeless base is what you want to start with. Plus given that they're trying to make the team cool and streetwear is in, a black/gold version of the classic Adidas California tee would have been a great start. That said, the two patterns they did choose are kinda sorta art-deco-y, which fits the team branding? Maybe pairing anything with that color scheme looks art deco.

 

But yeah, the sponsor logo goes and ruins it regardless! Oh well!

They’re not ugly by any means, but for inaugural season kits, these are just about the world’s biggest snoozers. They aren’t even sexy designs, they’re just flat out boring. Black and gold should have been a winner. White and gold should also be a winner (even with the different crest). The lack of meaningful design would be ok if the sponsor and numbers were gold. In that way, they’d all tie together and they’d be class. But the colored sponsors stick out like a sore thumb, as do the black numbers on an otherwise exclusively white and gold kit. These fall flat. I was expecting much more of this club who seems to have big aspirations.

I agree. I get the art-deco and appreciate it, but it should be very hard to screw up black-and-gold. Solid black with gold accents and that ought to be an exceptionally smooth kit. Should being the operative term.

I'm hoping that when they say "draft" in the Footy Headlines article that it is precisely that, a draft. If this is the finalized design I will be...very upset, to put it mildly.
