Spain’s Home Kit
Spain’s new home kit was unveiled on November 2015 and this time Adidas has chosen the classical red and blue shorts design for the La Roja. Spain played their first international game in their new Euro 2016 kit against England in a friendly.
Adidas introduced a striking colour gradient design using two tones of red for Spain’s Euro 2016 shirt with a subtle triangular graphic print on the front, back and the sleeves of the shirt. The three yellow stripes are placed on the side of Spain’s Euro 2016 kit instead of the sleeves and sleeve cuffs are blue and black and the Spanish flag is placed on the sleeve cuffs, created using triangles to complement the design concept
The all red Spanish kit that was used in the 2014 World Cup is replaced this time by Adidas and combines the red shirt with blue shorts for the tournament in France. The Euro 2016 kit is similar to the traditional Spanish kit that was used until the 1994 World Cup. The shorts are of royal blue colour and the kit is complete with dark navy socks. The yellow stripes on the side of the shirt are also present on the side of the shorts.
Spain’s Away Kit
The Spanish away kit is a unique design which is roughly inspired from the 1994 Spanish kit. The Spanish away kit has a white base with stunning front pattern made of different shades of red and yellow. This unique pattern features all over the shirt in different shades of red and yellow, centered around the crest. The away kit also three stripes of red running down on either side of the shirt and both the home and away kit have a modern v-collar, based on the Adidas Condivo 2016-17 Teamwear Shirt.
The new Spain away kit will have white shorts and white socks and with red Addidas logo and stripes complete the iconic look of the new Spanish away kit.
