adidas Soccer Reveals 2018 FIFA World Cup National Team Home Kits

posted by Oscar November 6, 2017

The countdown to the 2018 FIFA World Cup to be held in Russia is about to reach just 6 months more to go, so adidas Soccer has given us a glimpse at what some of the teams competing in that spectacle will be sporting next summer.  The Home kits of Germany, Spain, Russia, Japan, Colombia, Argentina and Mexico all revealed, and each one has taken inspiration from iconic shirts from their respective pasts.

The new jersey for FIFA World Cup defending champions Germany is a take on the team’s iconic 1990 shirt. Hosts Russia will be playing in an updated version of their 1988 Olympic Games kit, where the team won Gold. Messi and the rest of Argentina will be competing in an albiceleste shirt that celebrates the federation’s 125-year anniversary, which features an embossed sign-off combined of laurels (incorporated into the stripes) and the number 125.

2010 winners Spain pay homage to their 1994 shirt with a line graphic design consisting of diamonds in red, yellow and blue. Perhaps the best of the bunch, Colombia reminds us of their standout jersey for 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy that boasts a blue and red graphic design on the side of the kit highlighting the Colombian flag colors. Also worth noting is that GK jersey was inspired by René Higuita’s shirt from that ’90 tournament.

Japan incorporates traditional craftsmanship of Sashiko stitching technique for their classic blue shirt that also features hues of red and white as a nod to the national flag. Mexico’s (¡viva!) la verde has a gradient graphic running from the hem towards the chest. Belgium refreshed its 1984 kit with argyle in black yellow and red (the colors of the Belgian flag) with the federation badge in the center.

posted by Oscar November 4, 2016

For their latest collab video, Future and Drake come together on the soccer pitch to command their respective teams of ladies in the visuals for their new song “Used To This.” Perhaps the icing on the cake here is not only seeing both squads in Mexico jerseys, but we also get to see both leading men sporting our motherland’s home and away kits too!

Needless to say, this video is better suited for viewing away from your cubicle! Watch it above.


Mexico 2015 Kit, by adidas

posted by Oscar January 29, 2015

Today the Mexican National Team unveiled their new adidas-designed kits for 2015. The new jerseys for “El Tri” were unveiled under the new “There Will Be Haters” campaign the German sportswear company is running, which somewhat explains the approach to the new look.

Famously known for their traditional green jersey, white shorts, red socks uniform, the new “home” kit is black with fringes of green, including green team crest, plus the green-white-red color scheme of the national flag at the bottom of the jersey. The “away” uniform somewhat stays true to its history with a white jersey featuring the new crest design.

Mexico unveiled the new kits that they will sport as they compete in this year’s edition of the Gold Cup and Copa América.

The new kits will be available through all adidas portals starting February 2. Check out a gallery below. Continue Reading

Mexico 2014 Away Kit

Mexico’s away kit for World Cup 2014 has been revealed by adidas. The jersey breaks the recent streak of black “away” shirts that Mexico had been sporting for the past few years by going for red-orange shirt with a zig-zag design across the chest. While switching to red made for a great change of the norm, the overall look of the shirt is definitely not one of the better looking ones we’ve seen from the German sportswear company. The simpler, the better.
