They're going back to the Merlin name as well.

Yep, and Nike’s also utilizing their ACC technology on the balls for the first time.

So I was at Dick's Sporting Goods and I found this ball:

I don't know what to think of it but it makes me sad. Has anybody else seen them?

I'm sure there's others made for Italy, Netherlands and Chile too. Adidas would have made them to sell in each country ahead of the tournament. I expect that these will be available at Ross and Marshalls this fall.

Mockup of the Spurs home:

If these 2 mockups for Spurs are accurate, looks like Nike's making it really easy on my checking account in 2018 too.

Footy Headlines has some scoops on the 18-19 Arsenal kits, which they believe to be the last ones Puma will make before a switch to Adidas in 2019-20.


Home: Red with a heather pattern, otherwise pretty traditional

Away: Dark navy ('Peacoat,' they call it, which is also what the navy on the 16-17 cup kits was called) with red (bordering on pink?) sponsors/lettering

Third: Turquoise (officially 'Biscay Green') with navy ('Peacoat') applications; shirt may be similar to evoKNIT designs already unveiled for some countries in the 2018 World Cup (e.g. Italy, Uruguay)

Can't come soon enough.  Puma has been nothing but a :censored: ing disaster for Arsenal.

It's going to suck next year, with l'OMs switch from adidas to Puma.

 

Im scared that they'll find a way to royally screw this up.

I hadn't heard that! They've always had many of my favorite kits, that's disappointing.

 

Also those Nike GK templates get worse every year.
