New, comments

These things look stealthy and sleek.

Thanks to Footy Headlines, we now have a sneak peak at what Germany’s away kits for the 2019/2020 season will look like, and they’re a lot different than the current green away kits. Much like away kits from the past, the new away kit will reinstate black as the predominant base color of the top, and Adidas have created a very “stealthy” and sleek looking design concept for this one. The kits are scheduled to be officially released in March 2020, just ahead of the international break that will coincide with that part of the year.

Have a look:

At first glance, the new kit bears a striking resemblance to the colors used in the 2016/2017 away kit that featured a horizontal stripe pattern across the front with olive colored sleeves and lining. Black was also a big part of the away kits from both the 2010 and 2014 World Cup. The 2010 away kit was bold black and featured red details on the neck and golden Adidas stripes on the sleeves. The 2014 away kit featured a combination of red and black horizontal stripes across the front of the kit while the back was black with white numbers and names.

Footy Headlines suggests that the new kit will feature subtle patterns of dark grey to help accent different parts of the jersey, most likely under the sleeves on the side of the jersey and perhaps also on the back. It’s unclear whether the jersey will feature a collar, too, as the second picture above suggests. Nonetheless, it’s been confirmed that the kit will be accompanied by black shorts and black socks that match the black on the jersey itself. The names, badge, Adidas logo, and player numbers will be in white.

This is a far different look from what we’re used to from the current light-green away kits, but perhaps part of Adidas’s thinking was to help Die Mannshchaft fans forget about a lackluster 2018 World Cup. Regardless, you guys know the drill by now: let us know what you think of this design concept.
