Adidas have now given a new face to the body-hugging Arsenal jersey that has kissed our eyes all season. Leaked images reveal the Gunners home and away jerseys for the 2019/20 season modelled by the magnificent pair of Aubameyang and Lacazette.
Next season’s strip features a retro design which seems like a throwback to the bruised banana kit from 1991 which players like Ian Wright wore.
Th strip is the first of the new five year partnership which Arsenal signed with the sportswear giants, Adidas.
Leaked by footy headlines and former Arsenal player, Ian Wright, the kit evokes memories of the iconic designs of the 80s and 90s during Adidas first stint as kit partner with the North London club.
The home shirt – modelled by Lacazette- features red with white sleeves and the iconic Adidas three stripes on the shoulders (red). Both collar and sleeve cuffs have white and red stripes making them up.
The away kit features the bruised banana yellow, a favourite among old Arsenal fans. Three stripes also sit across the shoulders and collar cuffs with a subtle striped design across the front of the shirt.
Along with the yellow top are yellow socks and navy shorts. With the Gunners deal with Puma set to expire in July, fans won’t be able to get hold of the kits till that time from which the £60m-per-year comes into effect.
Arsenal fans have thronged in their numbers on social media to show their appreciation of the retro designs introduced by Adidas with some throwing subtle shades at present kit sponsor, Puma.
Whether or not the Arsenal will be able to don them in the Champions League next season remains unknown but fans are already looking forward to seeing their team wear the new kit in the league come next season.
