In With The Old...& In With The New | Sick Kit Friday
These are the sickest kits that dropped this week.
After many speculative “leaks” of both the new crest and the new kit, Liverpool finally released their 125th anniversary home kit for the 2017/2018 season. The kit will also be worn on the final match of this season.
It is a fantastic mix of retro and modern, drawing from kits of old the dark red and subtle pinstripes while the Standard Charter and New Balance logos remind us that we’re still in the present. The white v-neck collar is a little reminiscent of the mid-90s Liverpool tops, too.The anniversary crest is the Liverbird displayed prominently, with the year “1892” on the left and “2017” on the right, and the club name underneath. Altogether, the outfit is a sleek one fit for a birthday this big.And, hey, the goalkeeper kit is actually pretty great too.
Nashville SC is about to make their debut — as a U23 PDL side, before joining USL in 2018 — and they are most certainly doing it in style. Their home kit (right) uses of diagonal stripes rather than horizontal and vertical, using black and grey as the base with white accents. Simple and unique at the same time.Their away jersey (left) is a little Houston-looking, but it has a nice simplicity that offsets the bright color.
Japan also released a beautiful throwback kit of their own, albeit only one calling back 20 years. Their new 2017 home kit is a blue base with the traditional Japanese colors, red and white, being used as accents on the collar and the Adidas stripes. But most interestingly, yes, those are flames on the sleeves — as they had on that iconic kit from 1997.
Like Nashville, Corinthians’ new 2017 home kits are simple yet striking. The only thing that disrupts the all-white base is a tapered black stripe down the middle that represents the sword of St. George, the club’s saint.
There are similar, albeit more, of these same sword-like stripes on the away kit, with the colors reversed.
