10 Coolest Football Kits Ever


Year 1998 – Croatia

The Croatia Euro ’96 kit was one of the best-selling football shirts of all-time, but we slightly prefer the more refined World Cup ’98 version. Using the design from Croatia’s coat of arms, on a single quadrant, this brings back memories of Davor Šuker stroking in goal after goal en français.


Year 1966 – England

Pure red, no messing, three lions on the chest and Bobby Moore holding the trophy aloft on the shoulders of Geoff Hurst and Ray Wilson.


Year 1980 – USSR

All time classic. Countries have always shied away from writing their actual name on the front, or back, of their shirts. Not the Russians.



Year 1991 – Marseille

This is favourite of the ‘three-stripe’ Adidas kits era.



Year 1970 – Sampdoria

Classic Italian design with Feraari and Prada



Year 2013 – Cameroon

The Cameroon kit has been cool ever since they burst onto the international scene with Roger Milla ein 1990, and this is the best yet.



Year 1970 – Brasil

The king of the kits. The iconic Brazil shirt is still the best, with the 1970 version surely the pinnacle. Pele, Rivelino, Carlos Alberto Jairzinho, Tostão and Gérson all wore this: it doesn’t get much cooler than that.


Year 1998 – Fiorentina

It’s purple and it’s got the Nintendo logo too. Bati-gol used to wear it…what else?



Year 1990 – Italy

Deep blue, with nice Italian flag – legendary.



Year 1978 – Argentina

Simple and beautiful. And, naturally, the best was the long-sleeved 1978 version, as modelled by goal machine Mario Kempes.
