2022-23 International Club Soccer Kits


Recommended Posts

I actually really like that Arsenal third. The shade of pink is what Inter Miami used on their inaugural kits, so it’ll look almost white in certain lighting. Unlike in the case of those Miami kits, I feel like it’s pretty inconsequential here and works well with the navy and light blue. The shorts are navy, which also bumps the kit up a few notches IMO.

Hertha BSC 22-23 Third Kit Released - Club/Nike Remake Adidas 1997 Shirt -  Footy Headlines

It's interesting that they cut the third stripes off, but it still looks closer to the original design than most other jerseys that are "inspired" by kits made by a different kit maker. I think doing the Nike wordmark by itself at the neck could have been a neat touch but it works nonetheless.

But it wasn't the first time Hertha went up to the Bundesliga. They were a founding club of the league in 1963 and went back up in 1968, 1982, 1990 and then 1997. So it was actually the fourth time they gained promotion to the Bundesliga. ;)

Arsenal in pink just looks so weird to me that I can't move past it. That and I want the light blue to be more of a teal. Arsenal's been really into weird away kit colors in recent years and it just doesn't look right for them. Stick with yellow and dark blue!

Since the move to adidas, I feel that's what Arsenal has become. A teams that wears a color that would usually be a lighter shade and then a dark blue, light blue or black kit. I'm in agreement with you though. Manchester United had a set rotation of royal blue, black, or white alternate kits and that was it. Now they will have neon green this year. adidas and Nike seem to phone it in on kits during  a World Cup year, but it's even worse this year compared to others.

I suppose to be fair, there were regular disasters in the Puma era and even the end of the Nike contract (that purple and black striped number, what??). The return of Adidas has been frustrating because sometimes they're so close and sometimes there's this. Last year's away would've been a perfect Arsenal away kit if they didn't make it a pale lemon shade of yellow, just to be different.

 

(Also pink seems like a generally weird clash choice for a red/white team.)

I'm sure this is old news to you all, but watching Arenal in Amazon's "All or Nothing" docuseries, I only just noticed how the club strips down their crest to only the cannon on their away jerseys. The new season's black kit has it, too. I absolutely love that. I'd prefer that as the crest on all kits and leave the regular bad for other uses.
