These are the sickest kits that dropped this week.

SPORTING KC x LBF

Sometimes, we make exceptions of what falls under the “kit” umbrella and include some pretty sick collections. Live Breathe Futbol’s collaboration with Sporting Kansas City is more than worthy of being an exception to the rule.

The limited-edition 6-piece collection, which has everything from shirts to hoodies to scarves, “highlights the growing intersection between soccer and streetwear.”

Each piece takes a spin on the Open Cup Champions’ blue-and-white, as well as the iconic checkerboard and racing stripes — Children’s Mercy Park is “where Sporting blitzes visiting teams with speed, after all.”

And the devil is in the details; that checkered pattern is not only featured prominently in the collection but also pops up where you might not expect, like inside the pockets.

You can find the whole thing here.

RIVER PLATE

It is a more subtle version of the away kit they wore in 1994, bringing the River Plate red to the forefront and giving the zig-zag graphic a background role.

Who will they beat 8-0 in it first?!

EA SPORTS

As if the release of FIFA 18 wasn’t cool enough on its own, EA Sports have moved into the gear world and, alongside the release of the new Hypervenom 3, put out this brilliant new kit with Nike.

It’s bright, it’s knit, and it’s downright sick.

Which new kit is your favorite? What will you be rocking this weekend?
