These are the sickest kits that dropped this week.
It’s very hard to not get excited about an all-black kit, especially when it’s an all-back version of a kit we already loved to begin with.
From Liverpool’s ‘247 Pitch Black Collection’ from New Balance comes a special edition, commemorative 2017/18 home kit. It is, truly, exactly the same — pinstripes, V-neck, cuffed sleeves — but all black.
After all, if Liverpool aren’t going to give their fans something to be happy about on the field, the least they could’ve done is give them something to be happy about off it.
At least, sort of — the limited-run kit sold out quite fast, leaving plenty just as disappointed as they are when they see Lovren still in the starting lineup.
Brazilian side São Paulo have just released their new Under Armour third kit for 2017/18, and it is yet another black kit done right.
It’s not all black, with burgundy lining the sleeves (and completed with burgundy shorts). But what makes it even nicer than a regular black kit is the pattern within the black — what looks like snakeskin at first glance is actually just a mini imprint of the São Paulo crest over and over and over.
Under Armour’s campaign for the release is “#TomaConta,” or “take responsibility.” “Taking responsibility” hasn’t been going well so far, though, as São Paulo currently sits in 17th after 24 matches. Maybe this campaign is the kick in the teeth they’ll need.
In honor of the 50th anniversary of their historic Intercontinental Cup title win — which is not only still the club’s largest success in their history but also was the first time an Argentinian club lifted the trophy — Argentine side Racing Club de Avellaneda released a special edition shirt that pays homage to (aka is pretty much exactly) that 1967 winning shirt.
It’s got it all — the same collar, the traditional blue-and-white stripes of the club, and the club crest sitting on a classy pocket rather than on the kit itself.
