For the first time, U.S. Soccer will self-reference as the “States” with their 2020 kits.

From the outer pride element on the back of the away jersey (and the back of the socks) to the chest of the anthem jacket and the back of the training tops, “States” will be prominently featured.

The refined home kit is white, elevated by details. A blue collar transitions to flag-inspired red-and-white stripes on the back of the neck. The side stripe design pulls from the lab data on how the side appearance of the jersey is altered by a powerful kicking motion. While the stripe looks jagged when standing still, it aligns with a full swing of the leg. Nike’s Futura logo appears on the left chest and on the socks; the US is the only federation that will receive this version of the Nike logo on their 2020 kits.

The away kit is a deep obsidian with pops of brighter blue and red accents. The abstract pattern on the jersey was hand drawn by Nike’s design team and pulls from the infiltration of camo-esque elements in high fashion. In response to player feedback about the importance of a substantive crest, this and all 2020 federation crests will return to their tactile origins with raised embroidery for more dimension and shine (the crest and Futura logo will not appear on the kits worn in Tokyo, per guidelines).

Wow. Bad. Both are bad. Blue camo? For fuck sake.
The home kit isn't too horrible though. Bland as hell.

Home shirt is nice. Away shirt is awful.

I don't get the fuss - they're really underwhelming. The description makes it sound like these kits have changed the face of football, but it's a white t-shirt. The close up shots of the material look pretty interesting, but that's not going to have much impact on the pitch. Are the socks meant to be short, like tube socks? They look like the Netherlands away socks from 2010.
Same with the away - it's alright, but nothing special. Nike's graphic game has always been pretty strong, but this looks a little awkward, and not the most flattering on body. Not in the same league as the Nigeria kits, and the Korean away.


Christ Almighty. The pretentiousness of those descriptions turns the gut. Lab data? Arse arse arse.

Aptly Trumpian.
