Could this possibly be Arsenal’s new home strip and away shirt for the 2012/13 season?
Nike have decided to produce this simple looking design, one, which many will agree, replicates that of the Egyptian national strip.
The body of the shirt remains red and white, but features a charcoal black collar and two hoops (red and black) around the sleeve. The shorts are white and instead of the socks being completely red or white, as they have been for years, they are black!
I have to say that it looks more like a bloody United kit than an Arsenal one!
As for the Away jersey, well it looks to me like a run down, washed up Dennis the Menace outfit. It features maroon and black hoops all the way down the shirt, and to some degree imitates our third kit of 2005.
I stumbled across the image of the home kit after being sent to me via Twitter, but I think the shirt was first uploaded by Arsenal Insider, who are adamant that this will be our new home shirt. While I came across the away kit on Straight Talking Gooners, who say the image was first released by a man named ‘Highbury Harold’.
In my opinion, the home kit does look pretty legit and authentic, as it is modelled with Barcelona’s and Manchester United’s possible kits for the upcoming season in Nike Town.
Although it remains uncertain what our away shirt will actually look next season, I wouldn’t be surprised if the club go ahead with this one – from our navy and light blue horse jockey kit this season, to an old-looking, worn out Dennis the Menace kit next season.
Don’t know why I’m complaining, I’ll more than likely purchase both of them!
What do you guys make of the possible home kit and away shirt for next season?
