With the rescheduled Euros finally on the horizon, a summer of football awaits once more.
Europe’s biggest and best talent on will be strutting their stuff across some of the continent’s most prestigious venues before it all comes to a head at Wembley on July 11.
Along with the jaw-dropping talent, the kit designers have been hard at work behind the scenes and have once again pulled it out the bag on more than one occasion.
From Denmark’s 1986 tribute shirt to Belgium’s art-inspired away get-up, we’ve picked out ten of the most sublime strips that will be on show over the next month or so.
The Germans really just get it when it comes to kit design. Throughout the years we’ve seen the nation produce some of the most sought-after releases and their latest blackout effort is surely a modern classic.
This almost looks too nice to just be a football shirt? Simple, elegant, what’s not to love?
“Art imitates sport” is the beginning of the description for the Belgium away shirt and that makes complete sense. My goodness. Just look at it.
Very much a case of less being more for the Netherlands away kit so there’s not too much to say other than it’s a complete triumph.
Centralised crest? Yes please.
Does it hurt our eyes a little bit? Perhaps. Does it make us love it any less? Absolutely not.
This wild creation has been inspired by the country’s mountains and we can only sit back and admire the measured chaos that decision has brought.
Bloody hell, this one is good, isn’t it? An obvious nod to the Russian flag that’s kept super-simplistic giving off a lovely vintage feel to the whole thing.
Denmark’s 1986 Hummel shirt is one of the most iconic international kits of all time, so you can imagine our excitement when they decided to revisit it.
You didn’t think we were going to finish off the list without the Three Lions? Again, centralised crests just work. Combine that with the retro numbering and Nike have done a pretty good job for us here.
