Having ditched long-time providers Nike for Umbro at the end of last season, the new PSV Eindhoven kits for 2015/16 have been rolled out this morning and by ‘eck are they easy on the eye.
Umbro have created two bespoke strips for PSV (no templates here!) that draw inspiration from the city of Eindhoven (known as the ‘City of Light’ in certain circles).
The home kit is a classic red-and-white-striped affair, with a few choice details thrown in for good measure: a new collar design, some black panelling, a smattering of gold hither and thither and the club’s motto, ‘Eendracht Maakt Macht’ (‘strength in unity’), stamped proudly on the back…
But the away kit…oh, what a beauty.
Bedecked in ‘blueprint and fiery coral’, the sleek kit features a disrupted navy hoop design, with contrasting neon flourishes giving it that modern, dynamic feel…
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes. That is definitely a winner in Pies’ book. Umbro getting it spot on once again. They really are on a roll at the moment.
What’s the verdict peeps? Ja of nee?
