Top Seven Euro 2016 Kits
As we draw ever closer to this summer's Euro 2016 tournament, each nations preparations are almost complete. Squads have been announced, managers have a clear idea of their starting line-ups and fans making the trip to France will have started to pack their suitcases. One things that has been certain for some time is what each side will be wearing this summer. The likes of Nike, adidas and Puma have all released their kits for the summer, allowing fans to get all kitted out ahead of the tournament. As the opening game comes within touching distance, FREEbets.co.uk take a look at some of best kits on show.
7. Russia Away
The Russian's are hardly renowned as fashionista's across the globe but their away offering this summer is very smart indeed. It's shape is nothing too fussy, as are many of addias' offerings but is set apart due to the large print emblazoned across the front. The Russian football federation's logo not only features at the shirt's crest but also imprinted in to the fabric itself. Whilst some may argue it's a bit OTT, we quite happen to like the boldness of the very eastern block looking eagle. It works well considering the shirt is quite simplistic and the contrasting red adidas three stripes are another nice touch. Complete with blue shorts and red socks, this kit gives hope that Moscow may yet emerge as one of the world's major players in the fashion industry, maybe...
6. Germany Home
Now of course, Germany are going to be decked out in adidas this summer and whilst their shirt this summer does not compare to that of the 1990 World Cup (one of the all-time greats) it is a very stylish number nonetheless. They key feature behind this offering is its simplicity, not boring but rather a timeless classic. White in the body with black trimming on both the collar and sleeves, admittedly it is not the most exciting offering but the clean, simple aesthetic is a big hit with us. The kit does however have a touch of the daring to it with the gold World Cup winners logo on the centre of the chest, an accolade Joachim Low's men will be confident of following up with Euro success this summer.
5. Turkey Home
Arda Turan and co. will certainly be decked out in style as they take on the likes of Spain and Croatia in Group B. Turkey's offering is refreshing as although it follows the same Nike shape as the American giants other offering, the design makes it a one of a kind. The red and black geometric pattern allegedly draws inspiration from the nation's architecture and mosaic patterns. However if you ask us, it is more resembling of a grown up Spider-Man costume. The socks and shorts are black and the bottom of the shirt fades down to the same shade, a daring design that we think certainly works.
4. Croatia Home
A classic design that never really changes but in our humble opinion, Croatia shirts always look excellent. The red and white checkered pattern resembles a tablecloth to some but we think its unique nature makes it a real winner. This latest version sees a slightly diagonal positioning of the checker design in order to look like a flag in the wind, a feature last used for the country's 1998 World Cup campaign. That year they went finished a remarkable third place on French soil and the likes of Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic will be hoping that serves as a good omen for this summer. It's well worth pointing out that the away kit is similarly stylish, with the same checkerboard design in tonal blues.
3. France Away
For all of the outcry surrounding England's kit with the contrast colour on the shoulders (We actually don't mind it) Nike have done a fine job with the new France away kit. Predominately white, the iconic rooster badge sits proudly on the chest whilst the contrasting shoulders are blue and red. This gives the kit France's distinctive tricolour and whilst it is very similar to the latest USA strip, this kit is really made by the fantastic rooster. There is not a single better logo adorning a kit in international football and it could really stand alone as a logo for an international fashion brand. Perhaps we're getting carried away but anyway, France will be wishing they were not playing on home soil so they could wear this kit more often.
2. Spain away
Certainly the most controversial of all of the picks on this list, Spain's away shirt is subject to personal taste and will divide opinion in Marmite-like manner. Well we love it and certainly think that it is among the best of this summer's offerings. The shirt is mainly white with adidas classic three stripes in red down the side, although you wont be looking at that with the striking vibrant yellow, orange and red pattern surrounding the Spanish coat of arms on the chest. The triangular pattern has been influenced by their kit in the 1994 World Cup and we think it really works in a crazy, psychedelic way.
1. Belgium Away
For all of the anticipation surrounding Belgium in the last World Cup, the certainly did not look the part on the pitch as they donned a very poor offering from Swiss brand BURRDA. Luckily for them adidas are now in charge of things and they have improved things ten fold this time around. The home shirt is drastically improved but it is their changed away offering that has really caught our eye. The cross over between the worlds of cycling and fashion have been prevalent for the last couple of years and adidas have taken inspiration from Belgium's rich cycling history for this gem. A refreshing light blue in the main with the Belgian tricolour across the front, it seems football, cycling and fashion yields a very successful mix.
