9. Manchester United Away
Inspired by the iconic design from ’92 – one of the most recognisable in the club’s history – the Manchester United away shirt strikes the perfect balance between retro and progressive, sitting perfectly in line with adidas’s ethos. It reworks the iconic snowflake design by taking “Cloud White” and “Glory Blue” and bringing them together as part of an optical art pattern engineered into the fabric.
8. Roma Home
Always a nervy moment when a new brand comes in to take over from an established partnership, especially one as successful as Nike x Roma. But fears were well and truly put to bed when New Balance unveiled their first Roma home shirt, with a design that lays the focus squarely on the club’s iconic colour palette. A subtle tonal pin-stripe design is also visible on the front of the shirt, lending an elevated finish to the otherwise understated design.
7. Venezia Third
Kappa and Venezia were back at it with the club’s third shirt, which sees a blue-green body with Venezia FC’s famous arancioneroverde on the chest in three fading stripes, creating an effect of the club colours floating on water – fitting given the design was inspired by the Venetian lagoon. Seems borderline unfair how good the Serie A side’s shirt repertoire is this season.
