adidas and Arsenal have just dropped off The Gunners’ third kit for the 2021/22 season – and it’s looking like their most striking shirt together to date.
Taking inspiration from 90’s style and culture – as well as channelling the vibe of previous adidas and Arsenal bangers from that era – the wavey new design features a striking lightening bolt pattern running throughout.
The shirt features “Mystery Blue”, Scarlett and Signal Cyah and accompanied with dark blue shorts and socks and also notably features split colour adidas ‘badge of sport’ – a call back to the EQT logos of the era
Commenting on the new shirt, Inigo Turner, design director at adidas, said: “Through the design lens of the 90’s London Zeitgeist, we reimagine this iconic moment in time with true club DNA & adidas design language from the era. The 2021/2022 Arsenal 3rd kit is for a whole new generation of Gunners to enjoy, and we hope the fans will really like it.”
As with the 2021/22 home and away kits, the Arsenal for Everyone logo features on the inside collar of the shirt. Launched in 2008 as a celebration of the diversity of the Arsenal family, the Arsenal for Everyone initiative ensures that everyone can feel an equal sense of pride and belonging to the club.
The authentic kit will feature adidas’ new HEAT.RDY – KEEP COOL, cooling technology that ensures the wearer feels cool, while keeping players dry and confident in the game. The replica version features AEROREADY – FEEL READY, which offers similar technologies to help athletes feel comfortable and ready to play.
The new kit will be worn on pitch for the first time on Friday August 13 v Brentford, in the opening fixture of the forthcoming Premier League season.
The new kit is available to buy today exclusively at adidas.com, Arsenal Direct, the Armoury and in-store with adidas. Wider release with select retailers will be available from August 17.
