What’s going on, guys? Welcome back to the site!
With our away kit launch last week, we asked the one and only Jack Martin to give us his top three football kits from down the years – and he has chosen some beauties!
1) Arsenal 2005/06
“My first and probably favourite out of the three is the iconic Arsenal burgundy kit, worn by one of the Premier League’s best ever strikers, Thierry Henry. Some of the goals scored in this kit were unreal!”
One year after writing their name into the football history books and becoming the Premier League’s only ever invincibles, Arsenal chose to switch up their red and white kit and opt for this burgundy number. It was an eventful season for the Gunners, who ended their 93 year stay at Highbury and reached the Champions League Final, losing out to Barcelona.
2) Juventus’ Iconic Fashion Statement Shirt
Jack says: “The first of its kind; a fashionable kit that you could wear on or off the football pitch.”
When you think of a Juve away kit, you instantly think of one of their pink strips that they have worn with swagger down the years. Whether it’s the classic 1997 Kappa shirt with the SONY sponsor, or the 2015/16 kit, modelled by Paul Pogba above, Juve’s change strip often oozes class and has become a shirt for the east-end hipsters in recent years.
3) Chelsea 2019/20
Jack says: “One of the Premier League’s top kits – proper simple and smart!”
One of the cleanest kits in the top tier this season, Chelsea’s Adidas away kit is simply slick. Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham and co have taken to the Premier League with ease, taking the step up from the Championship in their stride. The boys have been doing the business wearing this kit on their travels in 2019/20, impressing in the thrashing at Wolves, and are looking good for a Champions League spot come May.
Where would you rank our fresh new away kit, compared with the above? You can pick up the Adidas strip – which pays homage to a classic Hashtag United Chapter One away kit – for just £49.99 by clicking here.
