These are...uhm...a bit different, but Berni’s still hyped! (Sips beer)

Back in the beginning of June, the design concepts for Bayern Munich’s away and third kits were leaked and they received quite a mixed reception. Now, thanks to Footy Headlines, we have a more complete look at Bayern’s full away kit including the top, shorts, and socks. Of all the new kits for the 2018/2019 season, this was the kit that most people weren’t too fond of, as it features a color scheme that Bayern’s never really had in any of their kits before in an attempt to bring something fresh and new to the table from Adidas.

Mint green and navy are not two colors one would ever think to associate with Bayern Munich, which is why the greater majority of fans find this jersey to be a bit out of tatste. Nonetheless, the top features a button collar, mint green base, with navy blue detailing on the shoulder stripes, sleeve cuffs, T-mobile logo, Adidas logo, and the monochromatic team badge. This is one of the first kits in a couple of seasons that features a monochromatic team badge, especially if you exclude special addition kits. Oh yeah, and we can’t forget about the Qatar Airways patch on the left sleeve...

On one hand, with this new away top, there’s little to no element of history, at least as far as the color scheme is concerned. On the other hand, we have another attempt from Adidas to create boldness in individuality with a kit that’s quite different from anything we’ve seen in the past. Everything is new at least once, and if Bayern win their away matches in all competitions in this top, perhaps those who’ve met it with criticism will start to warm up to it.

The kit is rounded out with navy blue shorts and mint green socks that feature the same navy blue stripes that are present on the top. The shorts resemble what’s basically a reverse color scheme of the top; a navy blue base with vertical mint green stripes down the side of either leg and a monochromatic team badge on the right leg.

The kit is supposed to be officially unveilved by the club shortly after the World Cup final, with the scheduled date rumored to be July 19th. They’ll perhaps sport their away kit at least once during one of the preseason summer friendlies in addition to their new home kits, which they’ve only worn twice thus far in competitive matches.

    It’s a Bayern Munich jersey, so I respect it, but won’t buy it...
