Manchester United have revealed their newest away kit for the 2017/2018 season which is giving off strong 90s vibes. The black kit, which is actually a mixture of dark grey, black and white, was designed with the strip which the club had back in the 90s where Ryan Giggs made his debut in mind.

Of course, Adidas’ branding is featured across the kit with, the three stripes and logo in white. Adidas made a statement on Manchester United’s website which read “Manchester United fans of all ages will recognise the bold graphic pattern from the 1990-92 away jersey that defined football shirt design for an era. Connecting the past to the future, the new kit pays homage to the historic design, celebrating the rich history of the club.

“The graphic design of the original kit has been reimagined on a black backdrop with white hues, with the classic adidas three stripes, club badge and adidas logo all in white. A crew-neck collar gives the kit a modern makeover, making it a jersey that’s as much at home on the streets as it is on the pitch.

“The kit features all the technological innovations of adidas’ jersey technology used by the world’s leading clubs, including breathable fabrics and mesh engineering.

“Alongside the replica jersey, there is also an authentic shirt available [as worn by the players], a long-sleeved version and shirts specifically for children and women.”

The team will wear the kit for the first time during their pre-season tour.
