The new Bundesliga season kicks off this weekend, and all 18 clubs will be walking out in new kits. Generally, the standard is pretty high with some quality designs. There are a couple of weak efforts that we’re likely to see on sale towards the end of the season.
BUNDESLIGA BEST KITS
RB LEIPZIG AWAY KIT 21/22
This kit didn’t convince me until I saw RB Leipzig beat SV Sandhausen 4-0 in the DFB-Pokal last weekend. It’s so much better in the flesh and my favorite design of the season.
BAYERN MUNICH AWAY KIT 21/22
I love this kit because, to me, the gold metallic look represents all of Bayern Munich‘s achievements in 2020. They won the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal, Champions League, German Super Cup, and the FIFA Club World Cup in a perfect year.
VFB STUTTGART HOME KIT 21/22
A club’s sponsor can be the difference between a kit being good or bad. Fortunately for VfB Stuttgart, they have Mercedes-Benz Bank and the car manufacturer’s iconic logo sitting dead center of their design. Combine that with Jako‘s perfect blend of white, red, and black, and you have a guaranteed winner.
BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH KIT 21/22
Borussia Mönchengladbach‘s home kit is subtle and bold at the same time. From the front, the black piping complements the white base color very well. From the rear, the green and the black shoulder pad area give it a unique look.
VFL BOCHUM HOME KIT 21/22
VfL Bochum‘s home kit is the perfect example of a basic design elevated by the color selection. The dark navy blue pops really well with the white stripes, sponsor font, and piping.
BUNDESLIGA WORSE KITS
VFL WOLFSBURG HOME KIT 21/22
I’m against all kits that are difficult to look at, and the two shades of green is a migraine waiting to happen.
BORUSSIA DORTMUND AWAY KIT 21/22
This car tire design never has and will never be fashionable and made worse by Puma calling the grey color ‘Asphalt”.
BUNDESLIGA KIT BUYING TIPS
- The latest Soccer kits can be extremely expensive. High Press Soccer recommends you visit your side’s official club shop to compare the price with American retailers.
- If you’re patient, wait till the end of the season when kits are reduced in price. The risk is they might sell out and be unavailable.
