The Eagle Has Landed | Sick Kit Friday
These are the sickest kits that dropped this week.
To celebrate Pride Month, the LA Galaxy have released stunning rainbow pre-match jerseys to be worn on their Pride Night on June 24 against Sporting KC. The Galaxy’s quintessential blue front sash is replaced with a rainbow, and the crest is turned monochrome and the Adidas stripes are removed as to take no focus away from the pride design.
And even though the team won’t actually be wearing these during the game, the stadium itself will be decorated with rainbow corner flags, rainbow lights, and rainbow confetti to celebrate Pride throughout the entire night.
Black and white have been utilized for kits in many different ways: Newcastle’s iconic stripes, sleek all-black or all-white numbers like those of PSG, Juventus’ recent zebra-striped third kit. Boavista’s black and white checkers is amongst that. After a few years of switching to a non-consecutive checkered pattern, the Portuguese side has drawn inspiration from their 1970s kits and returned to the simple, traditional design of their club crest.
If you had a crest as cool as Greece Superleague’s AEK Athens does, you too would want to showcase it as much as possible. AEK FC’s double-headed eagle, a symbol reminiscent of the Byzantine Empire, is now mirrored on their 2017/2018 third kit — front, center, and bold.
The kit is a sleek all black, with the detailed graphic standing out in grey. It’s intimidating as it is sick.
El Salvador’s jerseys for 2017/18, and both home and away are stunning. They will be debuted in this summer’s Gold Cup. The home kit is blue, a traditional color for the country, and is marked by a very subtle graphic design all over. Instead of a confederation crest, too, are the initials of the country.
The away graphic is more noticeable, popping out against the white, with blue applications only being used on the collar and sleeves. It, too, has “ES” in replace of the confederation crest.
