image

A year after releasing the travesties known as Liverpool’s away and third kits, the Reds’ official kit supplier Warrior have apparently stepped their game up!

If these leaked images are indeed the team’s new kits for 2014/15, then Liverpool supporters can look forward to playing in the Champions League in style.

Cameroon’s latest World Cup kits are a breath of fresh air

Usually you can count on Cameroon to have something off the wall up their sleeve when it comes to kit designs.

We might be a bit late to the party here, but their latest design is pretty slick. The pattern is a crisp, but not overwhelming, nod to Africa. Compared to some of their kits from seasons past, these are a godsend:

Who could forget the sleeveless kits from the 2002 Africa Cup of Nations?

And not to be outdone in 2004, Cameroon opted for these one-piece numbers during the Africa Cup of Nations.

Yep, we’d say they’re back on the right track.

The rumored USA kit is very, very blah

Just 110 days before the World Cup, USA fans may have received an early look at what their team will be wearing in Brazil.

Yikes! It looks more like an Old Navy polo than a soccer jersey. But lucky for all of us, USMNT fans are quite the, umm, creative bunch.

Pour one out for kit nerds everywhere.

Germany and Spain World Cup jerseys leaked?

Can you feel it? The best time of the year is near. No, not Christmas. World Cup Jersey Leaking Time, of course!

With 2014 creeping ever closer, kit suppliers for next year’s World Cup teams are eager to release their jerseys just in time for the holiday season. And that means we should be receiving more leaked images of said kits each and every week. Mexico became the first team to officially release their World Cup kit (if they make it!), showing them off in their last World Cup qualifier vs Panama. But until the other nations hold their announcements, the fun is all in the speculation.

Today, we heard of two new kits being leaked — Germany’s and Spain’s. And we must say, they are quite fancy:

Fresh. To. Death. But which do you prefer?

Spanish side sports Broccoli-inspired kits. Yes, broccoli.

We’ve discovered Spanish third tier club La Hoya Lorca’s new kits for the 2013/14 season, and don’t you know it, their away shirts might actually be even more hideous than Liverpool’s.

Yes, the kit is a tribute to every child’s least-favorite vegetable.

Not sure how well these new kits are going to sell, but at least the locals have already made the most out of it. Fans have already begun referring to the club as El Brocoli Mecanico, or in English, The Clockwork Broccoli. Brilliant!

There is method behind this madness, too. La Hoya Lorca are based in Murcia, which is known as “the vegetable garden of Spain.” Broccoli happens to be one of the region’s biggest and fastest growing exports, so last year the club released its first cabbage-inspired kit. And guess what? That season, the club went on to earn promotion to the third tier of Spanish soccer, inspiring them to wear the lucky broccoli shirts again this year.
