After tapping the elegant tailoring of Savile Row for Chelsea‘s latest kit, Nike Football has now turned its attention to Atlético de Madrid‘s uniforms. Pulling from the indefatigable spirit and tireless work ethic long associated with the La Liga club, the jerseys are equal parts heritage and future — and also nod to the squad’s motto: “Our Heart Unites Us, Atleti Unites Us.”
Los Rojiblancos’ signature red and white stripes cover the front, back and sleeves of the jersey, with slightly distorted lines creating a conceptual feel. This modernized look is offset by a classic two-button navy collar and single navy lines that run down the torso. The jersey will be worn with navy blue shorts and red socks, the latter of which features “Atleti” appearing midway up the calf. “This kit has a very classic look to it and it’s nice to have the full collar back for the first time in a while,” says star midfielder Saúl Ñiguez.
The 2020/21 Atlético de Madrid home kit is available now on the Nike webstore.
