These are the new Racing club de Lens 08/09 home and away kits made by Nike. After several changes of shirts during the first years of the club, at the end of the year 1923, the Racing club de Lens adopted the red and yellow colours.

One evening, while on a meeting, managers and players of the club went past the ruins of St Leger church of Lens. One of them noticedthat the ruins of the Saint-Léger church they happened to be walking by that night were the last remains of the Spanish occupation in 1648. Red and yellow colours appealed immediately to the president of that time, René Moglia. Players cure the blood and the gold shirts for the first time in 1924, during the opening of the stadium. The club's nickname, sang et or (literally, 'blood and gold'), comes from its traditional colours of red and gold.

The home kit looks God awful. The away kit looks pretty cool, They look like a wanna-be Croatia team

Fab kit (the home one). At last something different!

Me like... pity you won\'t be able to see the checks once all the sponsor logos are on there. Lens have always had good kits.

Which one\'s home and which one\'s away?

Just the Croatian shirt templates being used . <br /><br />Would you buy this if it was just a t shirt .. i dont think so.. ?

 

My goodness, after the last few seasons I didn\'t think Lens\' kits could get any uglier! Serious here, that is shocking!

Nike makes every year a different design for Lens, this is only marketing bacuse the team will be on League 2 next season.

Ye, the Croatian chees style design. Not a bad idea, but this isn\'t a quite original design, cause these kits are very,very similar to Croatian shirts.

very nice, a bit croatia-like and the away kit is awsome. <br />Always a big fan of Nike\'s designs

I must admit that I like it.<br /><br />but now with the chess style, we can say to have seen RC Lens wearing all kind of kits: hoops, stripes, halves, red with yellow sleeves,golden with red trims.. maybe next year we will see an Ajax or a River Plate style shirt ?..maybe it\'s too much<br /><br />(Wonderful socks..ready to buy them)

Yes it is Croatia but it is still okay-& look no sponcers!<br />Don\'t know if Croatia can get upset about the fact someone has nicked their kit design(including v-neck and away kit, and socks) but it is ok.<br />It is interesting that they haven\'t settled on 1 special look for their kits, every year is a new design in the literal sence as opposed to a re-interpretation of the same design-Ajax have done this since their adidas move. But I don\'t quiet know how they manage to get away with no sponcers when most French clubs have 7000 sponcers on their shirts.

This is so bad, not really bad - but embarasing. Both home and away shirts are just coppies of Croatian national team shirts, the home shirt - they just switched whitze and yellow checks, and away also checks and the colour is changed from blue to white. Design is by inch the samo. Really, hall of shame...

da player modellin da kit looks pretty embarrassed too.

Boavista wears a black and white chess-board style shirt,so I wasn\'t aware Croatia had any monopoly on the design :dry:
