Sunderland 16/17 Adidas Third Kit

Sunderland AFC has unveiled a new Adidas third strip ahead of the upcoming 2016-17 Premier League season.

The pink and purple shirt bears the name of the club’s principal partner Dafabet and represents a bold new direction for the club from both a design and colour perspective.

The eye catching intense pink colour scheme, combines a deep purple with contrasting slashes across, creating a traditional hooped design.
This new design make-up is complimented by a new v neck collar featuring the new colour scheme and the latest in adidas performance technologies.

As with all adidas high performance apparel, the kit includes the latest in cutting edge Climacool material, designed to provide the players with the best in lightweight and breathable materials.

The shorts and socks complement the dynamic shirt design, with deep purple with pink detailing and trim.

    :o Well, it's "different" I suppose but it's still horrible.

    Third kit...i.e. worn once all season, probably in a League Cup 4th round replay away at Crewe, so that as few people as possible get to see it.

    [quote name="The Cat"]As a Sunderland supporter, I hate this. The colours are fine and I like that its a bit unusual. But the single colour badge not only looks cheap but, because it is in a single colour, does not contain what is an important part of the club badge; the red and white stripes. If it is to remain true to the coat-of-arms-type badge then the kit must have a full colour badge; anyone who knows anything about coats-of-arms should know that the colour of heraldic devices is just as important as their shape. The same should apply here.[/quote]

    Well that was a reasonable, unemotional, concise explanation of your thoughts on the badge. There IS hope for fsc.

    A ballsy effort, agree about the crest, would have preferred to have it in the traditional colours.

    Strange, but very unique. Like it personally. Doubt it will be worn often in the coming season though. Have the potential to be a collector items in years to come.
    Just to add on, this is one kit that the new PL Sleeve patches would blends in nicely and won't look out of place. (I believe the new sleeve patches will have a hard time to look in place with a lot of the new launches from various clubs)

    Unnecessary kit

    Horrible colour combination

    Stupid photo, hiding the fact that it's a V-neck
