Both Chelsea and the Real came up short this year, but that is not a reason to keep looking good. Chelsea’s kit looks a bit like someone got run over (or pressed in a waffle iron), but I like it. Real’s kit is clean and simple.
The new Real Madrid [home] kit stands out for its sleek design. Gold is the chosen color for the details, including the adidas logo and the three stripes; a brand new feature which represents the many successes in the clubs history. For the first time since its foundation, the club has decided to include gold in the design of its uniforms. Players’ names and numbers will be golden too, matching the details on the jersey.
The badge has an innovative 3-D design, which reduces the weight of the garment, giving it an added feature. This jersey gets back to the classic polo collar, which carries the initials of the club on the reverse side.
