Since the beginning of summer, football clubs from all across Europe have been unveiling their kits for the upcoming season. With the start of the 2019/20 Premier League and Ligue 1 only a few days away (Germany’s Bundesliga, Spain’s La Liga and Italy’s Serie A kick off in the following weeks), we’ve curated a list of the best football kits from the upcoming seasons.
This year’s list features more Away kits than Home, due to the fact that clubs can experiment more outside of their signature colors with the former style. That tends to produce more eye-catching looks, while still incorporating the team’s ethos and resonating with their fans.
While you wait for the actual games to begin, read through our list of the top 10 football kits for the upcoming 2019/20 season, with new looks from the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1. Pick up the latest kit for your favorite team, or, even if you’re not a football fan, you can add some shop for new styles to add some athletic flair to your streetwear staples. Let us know your favorites — as well as which team you’ll be supporting — in the comments.
Leicester City – Away Kit
Although the color is rarely seen in the Premier League, pink is the star player of Juventus’ 2015/16 away kit — which was made famous by Drake back in 2016 and subsequently became a must have item for both streetwear and football enthusiasts around the globe. Leicester City is now looking to tap into that same hype with its 2019/20 away kit, which features the bold pink hue throughout. Contrasting black then hits adidas’ Three Stripes branding on the sleeves, along with the sponsorship branding, adidas‘ insignia on the right chest and Leicester’s celebrated club badge on the left.
Price: £55 GBP (approximately $69 USD)

Paris Saint-Germain – Away Kit
After embellishing Paris Saint-Germain‘s third kit last year (which was worn frequently during the Champions League), Jordan Brand has been promoted to designing the club’s away fixtures. Dressed in an eye-catching “Infrared” color scheme, the standout co-branded kit is definitely helping to elevate the growing relationship between streetwear and football. Contrasting hits of black can be found circling the sleeves and collar, along with the Jumpman insignia featured on the right chest, the club’s celebrated badge on the left and finally the sponsorship branding.
Real Madrid – Home Kit
Although they got knocked out of the Champions League in the Round-of-16, Real Madrid looks to start the 2019/20 season off right with a clean, crisp Home kit. The fresh white jersey is detailed with the perfect balance of regal gold — taking inspiration from the club’s crown spotlighted on its crest — found on the Three Stripes branding, FIFA Championship badge and “Fly Emirates” sponsor logo
Liverpool – Away Kit
Another fresh white iteration comes way of Liverpool‘s Away kit. Unlike its signature bold red Home jersey, this minimalistic take pays homage to the club’s first European Cup win back in 1977. Other subtle details include a graphic pattern which represents the street signs seen around Anfield stadium, along with the signature of famous manager Bob Paisley found inside of the neck. Blue and red detailing help to elevate the piece without going overboard.
Arsenal – Away Kit
Arsenal returns to its adidas roots this year, so it’s only fitting the club’s Away kit draws upon the iconic “bruised banana” kit worn during the early ’90s. The updated jersey features the same classic design, albeit a bit toned down, such as the zig-zag pattern and hits of navy blue. adidas also managed to do wonders for Arsenal’s Home kit, however their Away kit was slightly stronger in our opinion.
Bayern Munich – Home Kit
adidas has once again nailed Bayern Munich‘s kit. Unlike the red-and-white-stripped pattern of previous seasons, this year’s kit sees the German giant introduce a new diamond-pattern — inspired by Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena home stadium — to the lauded kit. When seen from afar, the graphic design gives the kit an almost quitted look. Finally, the Three Stripes branding on the sleeve blends in with the outfit’s signature red color palette.
AS Roma – Away Kit
Inspired by Jupiter, the Roman God of the Sky, AS Roma‘s Away kit features a lightening bolt graphic running diagonally across the chest. Dressed in hues of crimson red, orange and yellow, the bolt makes a striking appearance on the white jersey and makes the Giallorossi look as though they’re wearing a sash. With Roma’s famous colors intact, the kit remains true to the club’s identity while celebrating the city’s mythology.
Chelsea – Away Kit
Chelsea’s new clean Nike kits are inspired by the 1960s Mod culture, which once thrived on the club’s doorstep of King’s Road. The polo jersey is predominately dressed in white while hits of blue and red trim both sleeves and the button-down neck collar. Two buttons at the neck inscribed with “The Pride of London” help to finish off the overall look of the kits, along with a blue Swoosh insignia on the right chest and Chelsea’s club badge on the left.
Inter Milan – Away Kit
Inter Milan‘s stunning mint-colored Away outfit is no doubt one of the best kits Europe has to offer for the 2019/20 season. Complemented with black and gold embellishments, the jersey also pays homage to the city of Milan as well as the club’s recent triumphs. The aquamarine color also dressed the goalkeeper’s kit worn by Julio Cesar during the 2009/2010 season, the same season that saw Inter claim their historic treble in the Champion’s League, Serie A and Coppa Italia.
Barcelona – Home Kit
For the first time in the club’s history, Barcelona have ditched their iconic stripe design for a new checkerboard pattern. The new revamp is to honor the city, specifically the Eixample district, which is home to many iconic buildings designed by Antoni Gaudí. The yellow and red colors of the Catalan flag remain at the collar to the delight of fans.
