The Home Kit

The amazing new kit doesn’t feature a complicated design, which is a good move on the part of Adidas, and derives its sheer beauty from simplicity. Adidas’ famous three stripes majestically occupy the jerseys shoulders while the v neck collar is white with an underling of black, which is another hat tip to the jerseys of the ‘80s. The lower sleeve features a white band which blends in perfectly with the red, giving the home kit a rather rich look.
The Away Kit
The brilliance of the first kit would be hard to top, but Adidas successfully managed to give it a more than able competitor in the form of the away kit, which once again takes inspiration from the kits of the ‘80s. The stunning away kit features Adidas’ trademark stripes in red on the shoulders as well as a classy red and black v neck collar. The Adidas logo comes in red and sits quite well next to the clubs legendary crest. Owning one of these would be on any fans wishlist.
The Third Kit
Okay Adidas have created not one, not two, but THREE standout kits for Manchester United this year. The wonderful third kit comes in an attractive black and orange combination. The three stripes in shades of orange sit on the shoulders while orange bands occupy the lower sleeves. The Adidas logo as well as the club crest are orange, which is a distinctive feature of the third kit.
