Best Soccer Kits: Support Your Squad In Style

All over the globe, the world’s best soccer players are gearing up for another exciting season of professional fútbol. Of course, a new season brings new and improved kit designs for all the top clubs in the top leagues, and Eastbay is your one-stop shop for everything soccer and beyond. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite kits and the inspiration behind the new designs.

Barcelona

Barcelona

The new Barcelona home kits are a modern take on their classic colors. They feature a checkerboard print, replacing the iconic vertical line design. The print is inspired by the streetscape of the city’s Eixample district, which the residents call the creative hub and building blocks of Barcelona’s future. For the away kits, the famous club pulls inspiration from an older generation. Barcelona’s away jersey is a tribute to the 40-year anniversary of La Masia, a youth soccer academy that trains the country’s future stars. The all-maize kit is decorated with a bold blue and maroon diagonal sash, and the stripes on the back neckline are the colors of the Catalan flag.

Paris Saint-Germain

PSG

As the official kit supplier for Paris Saint-Germain over the last 30 years, Nike agreed to extend its partnership until 2032. To celebrate the long-term contract, Nike decided to honor tradition with a contemporary take on PSG’s classic look for its home kits. The all-navy jersey includes a bold stripe at the center formed by red and white bars and is broken up by the new Accor Live Limitless sponsor logo. On the other hand, PSG’s away kits are nothing like we’ve ever seen before. Last year, the team decided to rock the iconic Jumpman logo on its alternate kits for the first time in soccer history. This year, PSG is upping the ante by donning the Jordan Brand logo on its bright infrared shaded away kit. The bright red color is inspired by the infrared 23 color from the Jordan 6 and is symbolic of Paris’ influence on contemporary culture. These trendsetting jerseys are going fast, so make sure to pick up yours today from eastbay.com.

Chelsea

Chelsea

If you’re a Chelsea fan, then you know how important its iconic Stamford Bridge stadium is. So, it’s only fitting that the club’s home kits feature an architecture-inspired navy print, comprised of imagery from the stadium and southwest London. The new home jerseys also kept the classic royal base and feature a lion borrowed from the club’s crest on the inside. Chelsea’s all-white away kits are inspired by the Chelsea Smart dress and the Mod culture that thrived on the King’s Road. These clean jerseys also feature a white collar with blue and red striping to mix off-field fashion with peak performance.

Tottenham

Tottenham

While Chelsea honors the past and tradition, Tottenham looks forward to what’s ahead. Inspired by the optimism around the club’s recent success, Tottenham’s home and away kits are a modern take on their classic look. The home jersey is solid white with blue trim around the V-neck and sleeves. Inside the shirt is the club motto, “To Dare Is To Do,” a fitting ode to the team’s identity. The away kit also features the club motto but in Latin — a tribute to Tottenham’s previous crests that used to include the language. The bold navy away look features a purple graphic formed by type lines that read “Spurs.” As a nod to the club’s rise, the word “Spurs” only moves forward and upward within the graphic.

In addition to these top clubs, we also carry kits from Inter Milan, Roma, and Club America and offer logo T-shirts, training tops, and hoodies for all the same teams. To shop our selection of club soccer jerseys and apparel, visit eastbay.com.

Nike World Cup Apparel

The greatest soccer players in the world are only one week away from facing off on the global stage, but before the opening matches get underway, we need to cover a very important part of the tourney: the jerseys. Nike brought their A game and delivered incredible designs that are the perfect mix of style, country pride, and performance. To perfect every detail, the designers traveled to each country, looking for inspiration and studying each area’s rich soccer history. The end results are pretty incredible. Let’s take a look at four of the biggest countries and break down the special touches that bring each kit to life.

 

ENGLAND — Purity of an Icon

Nike World Cup Apparel 3

When it comes to England, you have to start with their classic Three Lions crest. The white home jersey with blue and red accents features plenty of unique touches, like a rosette emblem along the back neck area which matches the symbol soccer players receive when they make their first in-game appearance. There’s also a 3D brush depth to each number that is inspired by St. George’s Cross. The away jersey is red, which has been identified as the color for this young, creative squad of English national players.

 

PORTUGAL — Modern Royalty

Another classic colorway is Portugal’s traditional red and green look. Nike added just the right amount of flair with a gold Swoosh and an armillary sphere inside the shirt collar as a throwback to the country’s rich history of exploration and discovery. Ronaldo and co. are definitely going to love rocking these all tourney long.

 

FRANCE — Lethal Elegance

Nike World Cup Apparel 1

For France’s design, Nike was inspired by the latest fashion trends sweeping through the country. The Gallic rooster logo is proudly displayed on the front. The navy home jerseys feature a solar blue speed print pattern along the arms, while the away jerseys have tricolor specks knitted into the design.

 

BRAZIL — Samba Gold

Nike World Cup Apparel 4

The gold, green, and blue colors of Brazil are built to stand out and these jerseys are no exception. The home jersey is ‘Samba Gold,’ which is inspired by the spirit of Brazil, while the away jerseys are royal. The Seleção emblem inside the shirt collar pays homage to the rite of passage players must go through when they are selected to the national team. Plus, the jersey numbers are styled the same as they were in 1958, when the country captured their first cup title.

The NBA and on-court apparel partner adidas have announced that they will celebrate 65 years of Christmas Day games with special “BIG Color” uniforms that will be worn by all teams playing on December 25.

“I grew up watching games on Christmas Day and it’s a huge honor to have your team play in front of millions around the world,” said All-NBA center Dwight Howard of the Los Angeles Lakers. “I’m excited to wear these BIG Color uniforms that bring style and flare to the court.”

The uniforms feature a monochromatic color scheme with solid color team logos, names and numbers framed with minimal accent color and a shimmer finish for a bold statement.

“We worked with adidas to amplify our long-standing tradition of playing on Christmas Day,” said NBA Executive Vice President Global Merchandising Sal LaRocca. “BIG Color gives our players an enhanced look on the court and highlights one of the most visible dates during our season with a new and exciting range of products.”
