Gearing up to the grand opening of the Copa America 2019, Adidas has launched kits for the Argentinian, Mexican, and Colombian men’s football teams. All the kits have a unique design that associates with the heritage and legacy of the top class footballing teams.
There is not much change in the trademark colour combinations for kits of the teams but there is a certain freshness and newness associated with the kits. Not just that, they also had an energetic-looking photo shoot with the players wearing the new jerseys.
These kits are made for the Copa America 2019, but will also be worn by the teams in their respective international friendlies on 22nd March. Enough talk, lets get you diving straight into the kits launched by Adidas.
The Argentinian kit for Copa America 2019 is purely based on their traditional shades; there is also a sense of patriotism in the design. Before Copa America 2019, the team is all set to shine in their new kit in their friendly against Venezuela on 22nd March. The design is simple and basically works around stretching the Argentinian flag on the torso. The jersey has only two light blue vertical stripes separated by a white band. However, the darker shades on the crew neck and the cuffs, as well as the sublimated design of the stripes, add a much-needed dimension to the jersey.
First, let’s take a moment to appreciate how happy and fresh the Colombian players look in their new kits. It, again, follows a design that is keen on keeping the history intact. The kit is simple with the traditional yellow design associated with the Colombian kits. The navy lined graphics are beautifully designed as they somehow manage to give the jersey a throwback feel while maintaining a modern-ish look. The design of these graphics is based on embroideries of the Colombian tradition. The Colombian team-logo appears in a contrasting red shade, while the stripes and cut collar complete the look of the kit.
This one draws its design from the history as well, but it is slightly different. The design is based primarily on the iconic Aztec match ball that was used in the World Cup in Mexico, back in 1986. What comes as a surprise, however, is the exit of the traditional green colour from Mexico’s kit. The new colour, black, looks fabulous with the graphics that are based on the pre-Hispanic empire. The jersey also draws its aesthetic from the horizontal black stripes laying over on the Aztec design. White stripes on the shoulder and the Mexican flag being represented in the cuff completes a fine look and feel for the kit.
We are excited to see the players turn up in these new and fresh kits on their friendlies, are you?
