2017/18 Soccer Kits

me too, the away kit was also great. 

 

Might be an unpopular opinion, but I haven't really liked any home kit Nike has done for France. They've often hit it out of the park with the away kits with the mariniere theme, but except for the template Euro2016 kit the blue's always been too dark and there's been a lack of red from the shirt. 

 

The adidas stripes recreating the French flag were brilliant and often featured on  fantastic designs. Between  1982-86 they created 3 beautiful  kits in succession that looked like they were upping the ante on beautiful kits every cycle, with 1986 being my favorite.

How could I have forgotten about that?  That was brilliant.

That was a great shirt but it was completely ruined by the Robo-Rooster/Le Robo Coq in the crest. Somehow it still persists in the official FFF logo but they've gone back to the classic rooster on the shirts.

I'd say "completely ruined" is a bit of a stretch, but it certainly would've been better with the classic crest. This was my favorite of the marinière-themed kits:

Earlier leaks suggested that maroon/burgundy would serve as an accent color, but apparently that will be relegated to a small detail on the socks.

The shorts will be white. I have heard the kit will look similar to the above: Sky blue shirt with white and navy trim (the one pictured),white shorts with sky blue trim and navy branding,and sky blue socks with navy branding,a white "Nike linear graphic" on the back calf and a maroon stripe around the sock turnover. Cannot confirm.

Are next year's Nike kits just going to be this year's minus the contrast sleeves?

Other than the badge the Juventus away is a thing of beauty.

Bringing back a chat from the last page:

 

I’m pretty sure the Premier League name/number color rules stem from the league’s desire for retailers to easily stock numbers to print any Premier League kit — e.g., if there were 11 different available colors, and a smaller club used green, for instance, it could present problems for retailers who don’t want to stock a bunch of numbers they know they might not sell.

 

I think this is probably silly in 2017, but hey, their call.

That's still my all-time favorite France kit. The classic rooster crest one with the faded stripes is a close second.

Funny how much those sleeves darken the kit.

Oh jeez I forgot they're swapping to Nike. I think it's a good look, but not necessarily over 3 different kits
