For a special international break edition of #SickKitFriday, these are the best kits we'll be seeing throughout the weekend.
What’s better than a new Italy kit? Gigi Buffon debuting a new Italy kit.
Yesterday, Puma brought out the legendary man himself to debut their new 2018 home kit. It’s simple and it’s beautiful; a rich royal blue as the base, the Italian flag tucked into the trim of each sleeve, and a classic Puma perforated graphic across the check and sleeves.
And bonus, new crest!
We got to make it over to Italy for the release, too.

Denmark’s away kit is just downright beautiful. The classic Hummel sleeve stripes always add a nice touch, but the main takeaway is the small disruption of the otherwise clean white kit: the Danish flag peeking out of the top left corner.
Here it is, helping them to a 1-0 win away at Macedonia:
