PUMA complete their 2015/16 Arsenal replica collection with the new third kit to be worn in away cup matches this season as the Gunners look to retain their FA Cup and make a big impression in the Champions League.
Wrapping up their kit offerings after the Home and Away releases in June and July PUMA reveal a shirt that features a modern interpretation of a classic football sash, a diagonal stripe across the chest and a design not too dissimilar from the current Newcastle away strip. The colour combination sees PUMA opt for White, Victory Gold and Capri Breeze Blue on an overall anthracite base with PUMA’s classic Form Strip as a mesh panel on the sleeves.
The Victory Gold colouring is what ties all three 2015/16 Arsenal jerseys together and is complimented by gold PUMA cat logos and both sleeves as well as an all gold Arsenal logo on the opposite side. A classic V-neck template provides the finishing touches on a shirt that sticks to a similar design as the 2014/15 third jersey.
Reignited, reunited. The most anticipated replica collaboration of the season was always going to be the reintroduction of Man United and adidas as the famous Three Stripes returned to the red half of Manchester and after the initial home shirt reveal adidas return with an away offering inspired by legendary teams from seasons past.
Quickly following in the steps of the 2015/16 Home Shirt adidas opt for a classic white template, a design worn by the successful Busby teams of the 1960s. Switching the dominant colours from the home shirt adidas run three red stripes down the shoulders of the away strip which features a traditional V-neck collar and graphic design on the hem of the shirt taken from the 1990 shirt famously worn by Ryan Giggs in his debut season.
adidas have revisited the 1980s archive by bringing both classic red and white kits back once more, taking familiar style features that were popular with the Stretford End and combining them with the latest performance technologies to produce modern classics. The new away shirt will be debuted in the Premier League's first ever Friday night fixture on the 14th August when Man United travel to Aston Villa looking to build on their opening day victory at Old Trafford against Spurs.
Reuniting the three stripes with the might of football force, adidas and Manchester United have unveiled their 2015/16 Home kit.
The start of a 10 year contract, it is a landmark moment for the world of football kits as the club release an iconic shirt that will be a prized possession to many of its 659 million fans. A gargantuan number, the club and brand turned back the clock to celebrate a re-born legacy that began in the 1980s whilst inspire innovation with this kit.
Reengineered to feature the latest technological performance enhancements from the brand, this shirt is very much seen as a modern classic. Lightweight and breathable, it will debut on the pitch in just a matter of days as the 2015/16 Premier League season draws closer.
A classic v-neck collar meets those momentus three stripes, there are a number of subtle touches to this kit that set it apart from rivals. Nods to the past and embracing the game, style is very much on the table. Rightly so from a club based in a city so culturally rich.
Launched as part of adidas' 'Break Expectations' campaign, for Manchester United, the imagery and short films are inspired by the famous trident that sits at the heart of the club as part of the crest it's a powerful re-introduction of the brand. A future that will in no doubts provide much creative flair, the kits have been released to widespread appreciation so far. On the pitch is where the team will do the talking and they're certainly equipped to look the part.
adidas have unveiled the new away strip for Chelsea to defend their Premier League title on the road next season.
adidas have stuck to a three-way colour design that Chelsea have used on numerous classic white away kits over the years including the Champions League winning season of 2012. As with the 2015/16 home shirt the 'Yokohama Tyres' sponsor freshens up the overall design of the kit, a £40m per year deal that runs for 5 years, almost double the amount previous sponsor Samsung were chalking up. The Samsung logo was a popular sponsor that appeared on some beautifully minimal kits but the change in sponsor has given the Chelsea kits a new lease of life and fresh take.
The Chelsea blue cuffs on the away jersey represent the famous club colours and are joined by another band of red on the predominately white shirt. It'll take time to get used to the new sponsor with Samsung synonymous with Chelsea fans of a certain generation but all in all it's a couple of typically clean designs from adidas as Chelsea set about retaining their league title and embark on another assault in European football.

Saving our closer look series for the very best in 2015/16 football replica, the MCFC Nike 'match' shirt deservedly makes the cut. But City shirts are just plain blue? Simplicity can be equally as beautiful as complex design and this effort from Nike is as clean as it gets.
Much has been made of Nike's 'match' tiered shirts that are worn by the professional elite. The enhanced designs offer extra levels of performance technologies with laser-cut ventilation holes in key areas to improve air circulation and an engineered mesh fabric in the front and back panels to increase airflow and facilitate enhanced movement with a more streamline cut.
Visually it's a much tidier design than last season's with the sketchy looking navy trim substituted for pristine white detailing in a much more "City" feel. With the red half of Manchester swapping the Swoosh for the Three Stripes, Manchester City will be flying the Nike flag alone this season in a city full of influential football culture and style.

Few teams could pull off a kit of such notoriety with such nonchalants than Juve. Switching Swoosh with Stripes, the 2015/16 adidas away kit doesn't just cut the mustard, it cleans up the jar.
Carrying on a legacy that dates back to 1897, when the club was founded, this pink away kit is an attention grabber, that's for sure but there's no arrogance about it. A beautifully designed shirt, this is more about the romanticism of an iconic and nostalgic kit.
Using a combination of bright and pale pinks whilst blending in the world renowned black and white of the club, the Jeep sponsor is sitting pretty. A round-neck collar provides a straight forward cut for the more impactful elements to do the talking, and talk they do. Bellissimo.
It's fair to say that for a number of years, the football shirt outside a football stadium came with somewhat of a taboo or stigma. With smart, tailored design this is very much a thing of the past. With kits like this, it grabs off the pitch style and culture just as much as on the pitch performance. This from adidas holds all the latest technical innovations whilst carrying that fresh, unique smell of a new football shirt. Smashed it, it's cool to wear a football shirt again.
