Shit Football Kits: Wolves’ Goodyear Tyre-Marks, 1992

Hands up, we just can’t beat last week’s Shit Kit for utter, retina-searing shitness and we’ve also had to accept that we probably never will – I mean, how can you even hope to compete with a completely crap faux-leather ‘rodeo fringe’ around the midriff? You just can’t.

With that in mind, we’ve tried to make a fist of it this week and soldier on by tracking down a particularly vomit-inducing kit from the goldmine that is the early-to-mid 1990’s.

Presenting: Wolves’ Goodyear-inspired ‘tyre(skid?)-mark’ strip from 1992/93…

Even when it’s brand new, it still looks like it’s been pulled out of a burning skip.

    Yah, that thing’s ghastly. It’s not so much the designers I blame but the club execs who give these shit kits the go-ahead!

    with orange as a starting point, any time you try to get “artsy-splotschy”, you arrive at visual vomit pretty quick.

    Fucking terrible

    That’s really ugly

    don’t you mean ‘Awesome Football Kits’…

    With this kit maybe the best solution is really to throw yourself in front of a truck.
    But I’m wondering that you haven’t found the kits of VfL Bochum yet. I think the rainbow shirt from the late 90s is an all time classic and even the current denim shirt is beautiful like an Estate in Novosibirsk.

    @Manolo: We very nearly featured the Bochum rainbow kit last week – until we stumbled across the Colorado Caribous!
