The blue pinstripe design of this season’s alternative away kit has been inspired from the club’s iconic 1983/84 shirt.  Classic design meets modern technology with the shirt featuring high quality lightweight polyester material enabling a moisture wicking finish, designed to quickly draw sweat away from the body, keeping you drier and cooler for longer. The shirt also features a drop tail hem for added coverage with the traditional Leicester City logo applied alongside the embroidered PUMA cat on the front.

The shirt itself features a two piece rib collar and boasts a clean look with a subtle flash of colour.  With underarm paneling as well as the pinstripe design, the kit also features a textured form stripe design across both the shirt and shorts.

 

Marc Albrighton said: “The white kit is beautiful, it’s got the pinstripes which is a bit different to what we’ve had in previous years and I think the extra little touches make it look pretty special, we’re looking forward to wearing it. As well as playing the part you’ve got to look the part, so I think PUMA have done a good job.”

 

Paul Spencer, General Manager PUMA UKIB said; “We’re delighted to launch the PUMA Leicester City alternative away kit for this season’s campaign. The pinstripe features of this year’s shirt is a subtle nod to the retro designs of the early eighties and we’re looking forward to seeing the boys back in action in the new shirts and representing not only Leicester but the country this season.”

 

The new official 2016/2017 alternative away kit will be available from the LCFC store, 6th July and online from the 5th August. RRP £50.00 Adult, £35 Kids.

The Double Diamond company have recently released some tidy new stripes ahead of each team respective leagues! We’ve taken liberty on some of the freshest and arguably some of the nicest released of all the major brands!

With UMBRO, they treat each kit as a separate design; they avoid the stock design look we’re now custom to with the other larger brands. Stock design, changed with the team crest and colouring. No specific detailing, no emotion, no thought process…

First up; and arguably our favourite…

Eredivisie Champions PSV Eindhoven’s home and away kits for the upcoming 2016/17 season

The iconic red and white stripes are forever a main stay for the Dutch club and the home strip for 2016/17 edition is no different.

It’s the first strip that without the club’s founding company Philips; making way for Energiedirect.nl and it works quite well! No bold look or silly logos. Just a nice standard text, keeping the look slick and tidy. This is what UMBRO  do very well. Classic looks that seem timeless.

Our focus though was quickly turned to the away strip. A classy navy on blue work great and keep the look a solid no messing around design. Again; the Energiedirect.nl logo works very well and the change over again is seamless and looks as if the club have had the Dutch company on board for many a season.

Nice job PSV!

Let’s see if they can retain their Eredivisie title, however maybe not so last minute, like last season!

 

 

WEST HAM FC

A massive move to the London Olympic Stadium may put pressure on some players/staff but the design process is the same for UMBRO. Tailored class with a touch of claret and blue throughout. Fans have waited excitedly over the new club badge and it’s a beaut. Simple, elegant with keeping with their past history of being one of England’s established clubs.

 

 

EVERTON FC

Club captain Phil Jagielka says it all really. A great traditional kit with no silly looks or efforts to be something it’s not. Classic club kit.

 

 “I love the detail of having the co-ordinates on the neck of the shirt.  There’s nothing like playing at Goodison Park in front of our passionate fans and knowing you are following in the footsteps of some of the greatest footballers in the world. The nod to the stadium and its history in the kit is a great touch.”

NIKE_Manchester_City_Athletes01_original

Manchester City enters the 2016-17 season with a new manager, Pep Guardiola, its most innovative kit ever and a redesigned club crest.

 

Incorporating the Manchester ship, three rivers and the red rose of Lancashire, the new badge was designed as a modern original. For the first time, it also includes Manchester City’s foundation year, 1894.

Befitting Guardiola’s renowned attention to detail, the club’s new match and training apparel incorporates cutting-edge Nike AeroSwift technology designed to enhance mobility, reduce weight and reduce the distractions that hamper performance.

The new home kit combines the club’s traditional City blue with darker blue detailing that takes its cues from the color of the new crest’s text and trim. This represents an aesthetic update for a club that is cementing itself amongst Europe’s elite.

 

 

Two tributes to the club are also knitted into the design: the word “City” at the back of the collar, and, on the inside of the cuffs, “Est 1894” feature as another reminder of the club’s storied history and reference to the new badge.

The advanced performance technology in the kit is visible on the chest, where engineered knit zones create a geometric pattern that enhances fit with smaller mesh shapes at the bottom of the graphic.

The sides of the kit feature a navy stripe that runs the length of the shirt and shorts. Expanding when the player is in motion, the stripe maximises ventilation and reveals a subtle underlying City blue.

White socks, with a dark blue linear graphic on the calf, showcase the club’s traditional second color and accentuate speed.

Five-Year Partnership With Historic Club Kicks Off With Innovative ‘Fight Like Lions’ Activity

Today marks the launch of a partnership between Aston Villa F.C. and global sports and innovation brand Under Armour. Beginning with this season’s ‘Fight Like Lions’ campaign, Under Armour is joining forces with the proud and historic Aston Villa F.C. until 2021. As part of this five-year partnership, the Club’s new home and away kits, plus training wear, for the 2016/17 season are also unveiled.
The kit will be worn by the Club’s players for the first time in the opening Sky Bet Championship fixture of the season against Sheffield on Sunday, August 7, as well as during Aston Villa’s pre-season Tour. Features include the Club’s new crest, alongside a back neck label that showcases the Club’s core values – Pride, Passion, Purpose – as the two forces combine to elevate the Club back to their historical best.

 

“We are proud to partner with such a prestigious club as Aston Villa F.C., and our new partnership with the Midlands Club marks the start of an exciting period for both of us,” said Peter Murray, VP Global Sports Marketing at Under Armour. “As we collectively strive towards future success for the Club, we’re arming them to truly ‘Fight Like Lions’ on the journey ahead. We are extremely confident and passionate about Aston Villa F.C. at an important time for the club.”

“We are delighted to have signed a long term deal with such an innovative brand as Under Armour” said Keith Wyness, CEO at Aston Villa F.C. “As a Club, we share similar ambitions as Under Armour and will, therefore, be able to pull together to get us back to the top tier of English football, where we belong.”
