Melbourne Victory unveiled their new-look adidas home and away kits for the A-League 2015/16 season. So what’s the verdict?
The adidas global design team worked on the classic strip with input from players and club management on everything from necklines to materials.
The big change for 2015/16 is a colour makeover for the away kit, featuring a combination of night navy, vista blue and mint green throughout the strip.
For the first time the away kit will feature a bold graphic inspired by AAMI Park so Victory and its supporters can take home away with them when on the road.
The new off-centre chevron has three new colours in a stacked design sitting under the club badge and over the heart of the wearer.
The home kit features a new-look slimline chevron as well, which has been halved in width.
Importantly, logos have been moved to ensure nothing breaks up the Big V, while a faint, tonal chevron continues above and behind the logos.
Twitter was less than flattering about the away kits.
Melbourne Victory's new home kit looks like a training kit, and that's never a good sign. Is that meant to be AAMI park on the away strip?
