Who do you think has the best of the latest kits that have been revealed?
Manchester United’s kit has been designed with neon red accents as a pointer to the numerous glorious European nights at Old Trafford.
The Real Madrid kit combines night indigo and bright blue colours calling to mind epic UEFA Champions League’s encounters under the Madrid night sky.
The new FC Bayern Munich kit includes bright colour highlights and specific fabric, designed to shine in Europe’s top competition.
Chelsea’s is inspired by a fingerprint graphic – a proud illustration of the club’s identity.
The Juventus third kit has a unique gold imprint on the three stripes and club crest – a symbol of the club’s success in the major European competition.
AC Milan’s new kit transmits the striking colours and “green aspect” of the EXPO, which their city proudly hosts this year.
“We started the design process for these kits with trend research and fashion fair visits in Summer 2013. These were followed by trips to the different clubs and cities, where input was gathered from the clubs and fans,” said Florian Baeuerlein, Senior Product Manager, adidas Football.
“Each development has been made in partnership with the clubs, where feedback has been taken on board and concepts adjusted to create kits that are highly appreciated by the clubs, their fans and their players.”
