If the latest leaked image is anything to go by, it looks as though Adidas are going to be taking inspiration from Manchester United’s roots as far as next season’s home kit is concerned.
As picked up by the prolific and largely reliable kit design specialists over at Footy Headlines, Adidas are preparing to mark the second season of their massive supply deal with United by “fusing the half-and-half design of the very first Newton Heath kits with modern elements and fabric technologies.”
The results are supposedly going to be somewhere along these lines…
Whether or not Adidas have plans to bring back the ugly lace-up collar of the early Newton Heath kits (as replicated on Umbro’s 1992-94 effort) remains to be seen.
Let’s hope not, eh?
